Blueberry Tea Bread

When I went blueberry picking, I posed the question on the Stacia May Cooks Facebook Page asking about everyone’s favorite thing to do with blueberries.  My friend, Cara, posted a picture of a recipe card she had for Blueberry Tea Bread.  It sounded great, so I tried it for myself!
