The Joy of Baking

Once again, Nan has inspired me to step out of my comfort zone and do a little more baking. Last year I tried her homemade bread. It was a huge success! Rod, Miss Maddie and Miss Maddie's family all loved it, as did I. This time, Nan's delicious-looking blueberry crunch caught my eye and I knew I had a similar recipe somewhere that I wanted to try again. After a little searching, I came up with this:


Strawberry Cobbler

The recipe claims to serve 8. Ha!

  2. Oh, this is a terrible weakness. The temptation is great, but since I've just polished off an apple pie and a gallon of ice cream, I think I'll wait until I can work some of weight off before trying this one!

  6. Now I'm suddenly very, very hungry.

    *heads off to the kitchen for the last of the bread we made this weekend*

  7. Oh man, if that tastes anywhere as good as it looks, I'd say that recipe serves one.

  8. Nat - Oh, it was. Very!

    Jenclair - Yum, apple pie is just as good. I have great plans to bake a lot of apple crisp this fall. With the cooler weather, I can get back outside for my hour-long walks and justify eating desserts again.

    Stephanie - It was delicious before dinner, after dinner and the next morning for breakfast! :)

    Andi - It was so good, I made another with blueberries and strawberries. The top didn't get quite as crisp as the first time around. Maybe too much moisture from the double berries, but it still tasted delicious.

    Jen - I bet the girls would love it.

    Heather - Mmmm, I love homemade bread. Sounds like a plan for the upcoming weekend. Thanks!

    Kookiejar - You crack me up! :)

  9. Oh, wow. That looks so good. Plus, I'm turning green - your camera is really terrific (as is the photographer, of course). Say, do you have a good bread pudding recipe?

  10. Nancy - I am just so pleased with the camera. I can't gush about it often enough. I know you'd love it!

    Nope, no bread pudding recipe. I've never made it, nor have I ever eaten it!

  11. Gush away. I read up on that camera, a couple of weeks ago, and I was pretty much sold. I'm already begging to upgrade. Part of the thought is that I'd have two cameras if I did. I've always wanted to have two cameras with different lenses slung around my neck (although, that would probably be a bad idea because I'm a klutz and I can see myself bashing them together).

    Darn. Okay, we've got a recipe to try - the French place just does a fantastic bread pudding and I keep thinking there's got to be a recipe that good that I can get my hands on!!!

  12. Nancy - Let me know if you come across a good recipe. I'd be interested in trying it.

  13. Oh my gosh, that looks sooooooo good!

  14. Lesley - I've made it three times now and each was very, very good. I think my favorite was the first, though. Just the strawberries. The second was strawberries and blueberries and the third was peach. Next try will be strawberry/rhubarb. Yum!
