Blueberry and Peach Crumble

Our family has been on vacation for the last 3 weeks. I am out of my normal routine and enjoying this extended vacation in Oregon and Washington. I was so excited that the this month's second Barefoot Bloggers recipe--picked by Aggie of Aggie's Kitchen--was the Contessa's Peach and Blueberry Crumbles. My in-laws just happen to have over 100 blueberry bushes on there property in Washington. My darling niece and daughter picked the berries for me for this recipe. I ended up taking this to our family reunion in Eastern Oregon last weekend. There was not any leftovers so I figured it turned out fine. I did make a few changes to the recipe. I tripled the amount of blueberries in the recipe and I baked in a 9X13 pan. I really liked the addition of lemon and lemon zest as well. I am excited to see what other people did with this recipe. I know it would have been amazing hot out of the oven with vanilla ice-cream on top.

Here is this tasty recipe:
