Peach Cobbler

1/2 cup melted butter
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar (half of this would be fine)
2 tsps baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
2/3 cup milk ( *the recipe suggests this at room temp, but i didn't look far enough ahead and it was fine)
1 egg (* same as above)

1 28 oz can sliced peaches, drained
1 cup sugar ( again half would be fine)
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg

1. Melt butter in a 9x13 inch pan
2. Mix together flour, sugar, baking powder & salt
3. Stir in milk and egg
4. Pour evenly over melted butter
5. Combine peaches, sugar and spices and spread over batter-DO NOT STIR
6. Bake 35-45 minutes at 350 F until batter comes to top and is golden brown.
7. Serve warm with ice cream

Just a note, I got this recipe online at It is a really easy way to make peach cobbler and it is really yummy!!

Yummy Treats!

Since I had lots of apples (thank you, Mom!), I decided to take an Apple Snicker Salad to a party that I went to. Here's the recipe:

Apple Snicker Salad

1 package of vanilla pudding, prepared
1 tub of cool whip
4 apples, cubed (I used probably 8 since mine were small)
4 snickers bars, cubed (I actually used about 6. I thought it needed more chocolate)

Combine everything for a tasty "salad" treat!

Another one of my favorites is a peanut butter rice crispy treat:

1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup peanut butter
8 cups rice crispies

Melt the first 3 ingredients on the stove in a large pan. Once melted and combined, add the rice crispies. Once coated, press into a pan and let cool! (I add sprinkles for color, but I'm a sprinkle sort of girl)

Another rice crispy treat variation I like is to add Kool-Aid powder to the traditional marshmallow recipe. Pick whatever flavor you want and add to the marshmallows and butter when melting. It adds a fruity flavor and a pop of color. I like doing this at holidays with the colors of the season (red/green, orange/purple, blue/red, etc.).

Hope you try and enjoy the recipes that were floating around my head!
