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.

Easy Crock Pot Pepper Steak

Today I made a really delicious supper that was super quick and easy!

DSC02836

Here’s what you need:

  • 1 lb beef stew meat
  • 1/2 c chopped onion
  • 1 large green bell pepper, sliced into big strips
  • 3 T soy sauce
  • Garlic powder to taste
  • 1 large can stewed tomatoes with liquid

Now please remember that I “modify” my recipes and usually make them the same way each time.  But not always!  This is how I made it this time.

Here’s what you do:

I lightly coated the stew meat with cornstarch and put it in the bottom of the crock pot.

I then added the bell pepper and onion and then the stewed tomatoes.  I added about 1/2 a can of water. 

I poured the soy sauce on next and also sprinkled some garlic powder over it all.

I set the the crock pot on low for 6 hours, serve over a bed of rice and that’s it!  See?  Easy peasy!

And yes, I know that this pic is not the best but by the time I realized it I had already eaten my meal!  It was that good! 🙂
