MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 12, 2012

Really like the taste of this dessert and especially how easy it was to make; being I'm really not into baking :)

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 20, 2011

We both loved this dessert. It's so light, and the flavor of the fresh blueberries is enhanced by the not-too-sweet cream. It's also nice that you don't have to bake it, especially when it's 90+ degrees outside.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 25, 2011

I loved this dessert; however, I would use half the graham cracker crust ingredients for the bottom, and I would bake it for 10 or 15 minutes. Also, blueberries are so expensive right now, so I used frozen blueberries and drained them well.
