Easy Peach Cobbler

You’ve seen the pics on Pinterest of the easy peach cobbler, right?  Well I decided to try my hand at making them for dessert tonight.  We had just finished eating my easy crock pot pepper steak and I had high hopes for this cobbler. 


Here’s what you need:

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 dash salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 stick melted butter
  • 1 can peaches pie filling, diced
  • Cinnamon to taste
  • Brown sugar to taste

The recipe I used actually called for 2 cans of peaches but I apparently didn’t read that closely when I was buying the ingredients so that’s how I ended up with the peach pie filling.  What can I say, things happen.  haha!!!

Here’s what you do:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

Put 1 tsp of melted butter into each regular-sized muffin tin

Combine the sugar, flour, baking powder, salt and milk by hand

Put 2 T of batter into each muffin tin on top of the melted butter

Next, put 1 T of the diced peaches on top of the batter in each tin

Sprinkle with the brown sugar and cinnamon to taste

Bake for 12 minutes

Now I must share a little secret.  I put too much butter in about 1/2 of the tins.  Again, I *thought* I had read the directions to say  1 T of butter when in fact, it is 1 tsp of butter.  I didn’t panic or start over.  I just went with it and followed the rest of the directions.

I put them in the oven and then I thought…well they aren’t looking *right*.  I didn’t have any pics to compare them to so I just had to hope for the best.


Again, I apologize that my photography skills seem a little off lately.  I had the flash on and it made everything look so much brighter than it actually looked in person. 

Well I waited the 12 minutes and pulled them out.  They smelled so yummy and when we tried them I found out they turned out great!!! I was doing a ::happy dance:: I was so happy! 

Here’s the finished product.



Yes that is correct.  There are three mini cobblers on my plate.  Don’t judge me!  haha!!

Chicken Nacho Bake

It’s what’s for dinner!  Tonight I made Chicken Nacho Bake and oh does it make the house smell yummy when it’s cooking!

This recipe is from Kraft Foods and is pretty easy to make.

Here’s what you need:

4 small boneless, skinless chicken breasts

1/2 cup salsa

1/4 cup sour cream

1/2 cup crushed tortilla chips

1/2 cup shredded cheese

I like to pause and remind folks that I do not follow the recipe exactly as stated on the website.  I am far to creative than that!  Haha!  Not really, I just tend to mix it up a bit depending on what’s going on that day.  As you can see, I have five pieces of chicken and I didn’t use the measurements given on the website.  I like to think of the recipe as more of a guideline. 

Here’s how you put it all together:

1.  Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.  Place the chicken on a foil covered baking sheet.  I recommend also spraying it with no stick spray as once it bakes it sticks to the foil.  Slice three cuts on the top of each chicken breast. 

2.  Top each piece of chicken with sour cream, salsa and crushed tortilla chips.

3.  Bake 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and top with cheese.  Bake an additional 10 minutes.
