Blackberry Cobbler

Yesterday I made blackberry jam and I had a few berries left over so I decided to try making a cobbler with them.  I already told you how much I am in love with these berries and they rang true again with this cobbler!  My husband kept saying how good this was and kept asking me what was in it that was different, so that is how good they are… for him to even notice!

Frozen Fruit Cups

These little fruit cups are to die for!  They are such a treat and they are wonderful because you make up a big batch and put them in the freezer and they are ready to go whenever you need one!  They are my “go to” for breakfast, but they are good at noon or at night too!  They are so refreshing, especially on a hot summer day!  I always eat mine partially frozen and it is a frosty fruit delight!

The recipe is from Pioneer Woman and you can get the recipe here.

It has frozen peaches, canned mandarin oranges, crushed pineapple, bananas, fruit juice concentrate and lemon juice.  Her recipe calls for fruit cocktail, but I don’t like that, so I just add a few more peaches!   When I started making this recipe I had frozen peaches from my garden, but they are long gone and now I have to buy the peaches.  But I will be freezing a lot more peaches this year just for this recipe!

Breakfast for Dinner!

Do you ever have breakfast for dinner?  The other night that is what I did and my husband kept telling my how good it was!  I guess that I need to do that more often! I saw this idea out there somewhere in blog land, but I honestly cannot find where I saw it.  So I decided to just make up my own recipe.  Do you ever do that?  I am kind of a dump person when it comes to cooking.  I add a little of this and little of that until I think it looks/tastes good, and I must of had just the right portions, because this recipe really seemed to hit the spot!  I made Croissant French Toast!  Whoever thought up this idea was a genius!

I added some frozen fruit to mine along with, yes, canned whipped cream!  It was so yum!

 

My husband is more of a maple syrup kind of guy, so I just sprinkled a little powdered sugar on his, before he smothered it with syrup!  I added a ham and cheese omelet to round out the meal.  And like I said, it really hit the spot!

Does anyone else out there want to make croissant french toast?  Your taste buds with thank you if you do!

Croissant French Toast

1 egg

½ cup milk

2 croissants split in half

1 tsp cinnamon-divided (or to taste)

 

Mix egg and milk together until well blended in a flat bowl.

Add ½ tsp cinnamon to egg mixture.

Dip both sides of the croissant into egg mixture.

Cook on a hot griddle until egg is cooked and slightly browned, repeat for other side.

(I only added ½ of the cinnamon and dipped two slices then added the other ½ before dipping the next two slices.  I like quite a bit of cinnamon, so you may have to adjust how much you use for your own taste.)

Top with powdered sugar, fruit and whipped cream, or your favorite syrup.
