Blueberry Sauce Throwdown

By the way, I mentioned that Ellie's Blueberry Sauce from a past show was dismal. Here's a better recipe and it comes from, not surprisingly, the Queen of All That Is Good and Yummy, Ina Garten: The Barefoot Contessa's Blueberry Sauce. It was part of her "Going, Going, Gone" episode, where she prepares lunch for 2 auction winners.

She served it with a Lemon Yogurt Cake: Lemon Yogurt Cake. That was funny because Ina thought she was being all healthy using yogurt in a cake. Well, it was WHOLE MILK yogurt, which, as you can see, is no real improvement from plain whole milk, except that it does have more calcium.
Milk (whole), 8 oz. - Calories: 150, Protein: 8g, Carbohydrate: 11.4g, Total Fat: 8.1g, Fiber: 0.0g, *Excellent source of:Calcium (291g) Yogurt, (whole milk, plain), 1 cup - Calories: 149, Protein: 8.5g, Carbohydrate: 11.4g, Total Fat: 7.96g, Fiber: 0.0g *Excellent source of: Calcium (447mg) *Good source of: Magnesium (43mg), and Potassium (573mg)

Once again in the category of taste, The Barefoot Contessa triumphs over the healthy, but awfully sincere, offerings of Ellie Krieger.
