It’s going to be a light year for our backyard garden due to some high winds and a few late frosts, but the fruits are starting to come in.

Time for the Fair!

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2014

End of summer means the fair around here. We went on a quick after school in to evening trip this time. It worked out well that we went early and in the evening. Our holiday weekend was filled with runny noses and a heatwave outside, the fair would have been awful or missed had we not hit opening night.

Cherry Cobbler

Friday, July 19th, 2013

My husband loves cobbler: peach cobbler, berry cobbler, cherry cobbler. He could probably go all Bubba from Forrest Gump with types of cobbler. I have struggled for a long time trying to find the perfect cobbler recipe and when I stumbled across this one in a spice catalog of all places, I immediately gave it a try. That one was peach and then I tried it again with cherry and the result was amazing. Perfect cherry cobbler. I am so excited that I finally found a recipe that worked. Blueberry might be next. I don’t tend to make super sweet fillings for desserts so I cut the fruit sugar in half for this recipe and it worked well, but if you like the super sweet fruit, up it a bit.

Cherry Cobbler

Cherry Cobbler
3 cups of cherrys, stemmed, pitted and halved
1 cup of sugar, divided
1/2 cup butter
3/4 c all purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
pinch of salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup milk

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a 2 quart baking pan
  2. Mix the cherries and 1/2 cup of the sugar in a mixing bowl and set aside
  3. Either melt the butter directly in the baking pan or pour melted butter in the baking pan and set aside
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine the other 1/2 cup of sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon.
  5. Stir milk and vanilla in to the flour mixture and mix well
  6. Pour batter in to baking pan on top of the butter, do not stir
  7. Gently pour cherries (and their juice) over the batter, trying to get them as even as possible without disrupting too much of the batter/butter mixture.
  8. Bake for 45-60 minutes until fruit is bubbly and top is golden brown.
  9. Let cool a bit and serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
