A simple lemon glaze pairs exceptionally well with these slightly sweet, berry-laced muffins. The glaze hardens up nicely too, so they make a perfect take along snack.
This is more or less a simple brownie recipe with some blackberries sprinkled on top- but what a humdinger of a simple recipe it is!
It’s somewhere in between a “cakey” brownie and a “chewy” brownie. And, while I admit that I generally prefer the chewy variety to the cakey variety… these are right up there with the best chewy brownies I have ever had. They’re soft and moist on the inside, while chewy and slightly crispy on the outside.
The blackberries are optional, but they add a really nice touch.
This delicious bread is mostly savory with just a touch of sweetness from the peaches. It’s a little dense, but man, does it ever hit the spot for anyone with a hankerin’ for a good (and not obviously Gluten Free, like the crappy ones in the freezer section of the grocery store [blech!]) piece of bread.
It’s really crusty too…
…in a good way!!
Holy yummy, people… have I got a recipe for you!
It’s not particularly healthy… but it’s a cobbler. And, it’s delicious!
If I didn’t have to share, I would love to eat this whole thing myself. In fact, it is very rare when a creation of mine does not survive past its photo shoot. But, I had to call this one short due to my lack of self restraint.
Many people have a different idea of what a cobbler should taste like. Just for the record, this one has a coffecake-biscuity like topping, and the berries on the bottom definitely resemble a deliciously sticky pie filling. And, of course, there’s crumble topping on top of the topping. So, it’s less like a “buckle”, and more like a “grunt”, but most perfectly described as just “cobbler”.
Are you all still with me? :)
Fruity and wonderful, please enjoy this recipe for gluten free (but certainly not sugar or fat free!) blackberry cobbler.
I never used to like salsa. Not at all.
Not riding atop my favorite tortilla chip, not accompanying my fajitas, not even as a stand in for butter on my baked potato. Nope, I hated it. I also used to loathe cilantro, as I understand many people do. Perhaps it was an acquired taste, because after years of relentless late night salsa snacking by my hubby… I finally caved and started devouring his favorite dip right alongside him.
It used to be that he could savor an entire tub all by himself with no competition trying to sneak their chip into the last bite. Not anymore. I have converted into a full fledged salsa fanatic. Now we buy two containers and polish off both within ten minutes, dueling chips in hand.
I even have developed a particular fondness for that stinky cilantro (but I would rather credit my love affair with Indian cuisine for that one). Mmmm… Baingan Bharta.
Anyways, did you know how wonderful cilantro, avocado and blueberries meld together? They do, and this recipe is simple proof…
…that is, if you don’t hate salsa. :)
Hiya all! I’m back.
Well, truthfully I hadn’t gone anywhere. I have been sitting on my computer for the last week and a half trying my damn-dist to get this blog all fixed up. Unfortunately, my former webhost had some issues and both of my websites with that host were hacked. Fun.
It occurred while I was on my super fun mini vacation. My family enjoyed a quick getaway with my long time BFF from Philly and her fams. It was a blast. Good eats, fireworks, my favorite people all in one place, swimming pools, and dogs galore.
But coming home to my website spewing out maliciousness was pretty horrible. :)
Needless to say, I had to do some major cleaning up, and I had to switch hosts… and it took a bit of time to do so.
But, no worries. Everything is happy and secure and fresh and new, and I’ve brought along some extra chocolatey chip cookies. Or, at least the recipe.
It feels so good to be back up.
Thank goodness for BFF’s from Philly who know how to fix broken websites. Thank goodness for my supportive hubs who spent all hours of every day working hard and freaking out along side of me, but doing a much better job of keeping his cool than I. Thank goodness for puppies… for just being so darn cute and snuggly when I needed it the most.
And thank goodness for you understanding and wonderful readers. ♥
The classic combo of peaches and cream makes for a wonderful treat any time of day. I slipped some strawberries in there too.. because they also go stunningly with cream.
