Biggest Loser Blueberry Crumble Pie

Is it wrong for me to make dessert and sit down to watch the Biggest Loser? Because that's what I like to do. I almost cried last night when I realized our DVR had a brain anneurism and didn't record it. Luckily, the episodes are online, so I can watch it tonight. But I did make the Blueberry Crumble Pie for the second time, and I really like it! I had to share! Fresh blueberries have been on sale lately, and they are begging to be in this pie. It's from Cooking Light so it's not so bad. (Although I don't know where you find a low-fat graham cracker crust? I guess you can make one yourself and alter it? Don't know.)

Blueberry Crumble Pie (from myrecipes.com)

5 cups fresh or frozen blueberries (I buy two little baskets)
1 (9-inch) reduced-fat graham-cracker crust
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 (8-ounce) carton low-fat sour cream
1/4 cup dry breadcrumbs
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 tablespoon margarine, melted

Preheat oven to 375°.

Place blueberries in crust; set aside.

Combine brown sugar, flour, vanilla, rind, and sour cream; spread over blueberries. Combine breadcrumbs, granulated sugar, and margarine; sprinkle over sour cream mixture. Bake at 375° for 40 minutes or until set and crumbs are lightly browned.

I did the same thing last night. I made a coke float and sat down to watch The Biggest Loser. It's a good episode. I cried. Oh wait I cry every week.

On a totally different note, you need to go to


Your brother just produced one of my friends CD's. He's doing the 2 free songs like Robbie did.

There really is something about Biggest Loser that makes you want to watch it while eating dessert. We do the same thing. Whether its ice cream, popcorn or oreos, I've usually got some sort of food going into my mouth that Jillian would rip me up and down for. Is it sympathy? We are eating it FOR them since they can't?

Next week we'll probably be eating Blueberry Crumble Pie bc it sounds very yummy!

fyi - They have reduced fat graham cracker crusts at Kroger. It's Keebler brand. I happen to have one in my pantry and I think that means I will have to make this awesome recipe! I have no choice now.
