peach cobbler, oh my...

Have you heard? Its one of my favorite deserts. ♥
yes, Peach cobbler. I get the recipe from the Pioneer woman, she's got some pretty good stuff. go check her out.

 K, so you wast alot by peeling them with a knife, so what you do is, Blanch them for exactly 1 minute! no more, no less. trust me, its worth the boil.

 this is where i put them after they were boiled for 1 minute.
 after i cute them in half, not sepereating them yet, i peal i off, then i separated it and get the seed out. you might squish the peach a bit since its all warm and all.

 all cut up.

Recipe: Blackberry Cobbler #1

  |    |    |  


  • 1 stick Butter
  • 1-1/4 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup Self-Rising Flour
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 cups Blackberries (frozen Or Fresh)

Preparation Instructions

Melt butter in a microwavable dish. Pour 1 cup of sugar and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking in milk. Mix well. Then, pour in melted butter and whisk it all well together. Butter a baking dish.
Now rinse and pat dry the blackberries. Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle blackberries over the top of the batter; distributing evenly. Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar over the top.
Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden and bubbly. If you desire, sprinkle an additional teaspoon of sugar over the cobbler 10 minutes before it’s done.
So yeah, I make it peach, I have done a mix of strawberry, raspberry. but peach. its my favorite. ♥

Happy tuesday!

Its a monday.

The other day mom hosted a bible study with a few moms,
all the kids went swimming in our 4 ft pool, the toddlers in the 7 inch high pool, what a good start of the day.

then some other friends cam over for lunch, and i took some pictures of wesly as they were leaving.. he was quite the chunker. :) 

 Isn't he cute?


This last weekend our yoga place moved, and had a grand opening!
It looks alot better then the last place. Definitely bigger!

The mirror on the right is where the instructor stands in front. :)

It so fun because there is no levels, you just jump in! 

I've never done it before, i thought it was a wee bit weird, but i love it now that i've tried it! :)

but i also love yoga...  =)
no weird meditation, just yoga. 

I'd show you some pictures but I didn't bring my camera, and i'd rather be doing it, then taking pictures! wouldn't you? maybe sometime i'll have to take a pic or two. 

Have you ever danced Zumba before?   [pronounced Zoom-bah]
So what have you been doing lately?

much loveeeeee...

Thank you to all you guest posters who kept my lovely blog going!
I took alot of pictures, [wasn't that expected?] went tubing, 
drank coffee. lots of coffee. usually iced americanos with a shot of caramel or English toffee. =)
but i am also happy to be back home,

 I am hoping to going more followers, and do more posts... What do you think?

Today i made a tomato basil and pasta dish-thingy...
I think it turned out pretty good, except it needed a bit more salt. you can always fix that!

 the fresh tomatoes and basil from the garden all chopped up.

 pasta. tomatoes. knife.

 and this is what it looked like before everyone ate it. and after i was done making it. :) are you hungry now? good.

the little things (a guest post by Alexandra Robbin)

Hello, I'm Alexandra. Generally, I'm a very happy, bouncy person. I'm that person who ends up bugging everyone to death with their singing and cheerful disposition. What can I say? I love life and all the pleasures that come with it. I try to appreciate the small things in life, like a small bouquet of wild flowers, there's something about wildflowers that make me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

I love floral patterned sundress (floral patterned anything would do!) they always make me think of springtime.

I love feeling the sunshine seeping through the tree tops and warming my back. Some days I'll sit outside for hours on end just soaking up the sun.

I love going into cute little vintage shops, you never know what you're going to find!

and last but not least, I love weird signs! You'll just be walking down the street feeling glum and you'll suddenly see some sign hanging in a shop window and it will light up your day!
This is just the beginning of a very long list, but I will spare you and stop at five.

What are some of the little things you love?
