A very delicious smoothie that is rich and sweet. A combination of blueberries and black cherries with a little peanut butter and brown sugar; tastes great!
Here in Maine, we have an awful lot of blueberries in late summer. You try not to get too tired of them in pies, so here is one of the families favorites.

You may have more mixture then your ice cream maker can handle, so don't flood it. Enjoy!
Don't worry--these don't have eccentric California ingredients! In fact, they are very traditional. The only exception is the use of sourdough bread crumbs, which lend a fuller, tangier flavor than crackers or plain crumbs. Combine the sourdough bread crumbs with a perfect blend of spices and vegetables and lots of crab, and you have a winning combination. Make smaller cakes for appetizers, or larger ones -- like these -- for main dishes. Enjoy!
