Bad Again!

Here are FINALLY {that I remembered} the photos and recipe for the yummy peach cobbler Hubs and I made awhile ago now.


Oh man was it YUMMY!


    Peach Mixture:
    3Tbsp Smart Balance Spread
    1/2 cup (100g) Splenda
    2 Tbsp cornstarch
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    1/2 tsp lemon juice
    4 cups fresh peaches
    1 1/2 cup water
    1 cup bisquick
    1 cup old fashion oats
    3 Tbsp splenda
    1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 cup skim milk
    1 Tbsp melted Smart Balance spread


1. Heat oven to 400 degreesF. In 4-quart saucepan, heat 3 Tbsp margarine, 1/2 cup sugar and the cornstarch over medium heat 1 minute, stirring constantly, until margarine is melted. Stir in 2 teaspoons cinnamon, the vanila, lemon juice and peaches with 1 1/2 cup water. Heat to boiling; boil 1 minute, stirring occasionally. Pour into a ungreased 13 x 9-inch glass baking dish.

2. In a medium bowl, stir Bisquick mix, 2 Tbsp of sugar, 1/4 tsp cinnamon, the milk and 1 Tbsp melted margarine until soft dough forms. Drop dough by heaping tablespoonfuls over hot peach mixture. Sprinkle with remaining sugar.

3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until peach mixture is bubbly around edges and topping is golden brown. Serve warm.

Serve 12 (1 - cup servings)

Number of Servings: 12

Eckert's Farm in Belleville, IL is seriously an awesome place! 

I have such fond memories there as a child. We use to pick pumpkins, apples & loads of other yummy when I was little. My sister & I always looked forward to the tractor ride and bring picked up to get the highest fruit on the tree. :)

As well, my Hubs and I spent our first anniversary of dating at Eckert's. We went to the farm, picked peaches and then came home and made a lovely dessert. Peach Cake. It was sooo delicious. I have photos from the experience somewhere, but couldn't locate them in time for this post. BUMMER.

Well, today Hubs and I went on a repeat date of our first anniversary together dating ...

WHAT FUN! We even added blackberries to the mix this time around. Seriously the biggest juicy blackberries I have ever found in my life were picked there today. It made me think of time together in Washington State with David's sweet Grandfather on his land. He recently passed away, and we both really missed him as we walked through the bushes.

Last but not least we took our goodies home and Hubs made me the most delicious most wonderful healthy peach cobbler. 


Can't wait to see the cobble & of course get the recipe??

Woodland Adventures

I have so enjoyed my sister being home for her leave. I can't believe how quickly two weeks has gone by, and truly I am not ready for her to leave tomorrow. We have had a very rocky, very rough year ... & our relationship feels like it is making healthy steps forward.

We were so blessed to take our favorite kiddos out to Grants Farm yesterday. We had sooo much fun! Our Dad joined us, and we all knew it was a memory for the record books. You know the kind that just won't soon be forgotten.

Easy to love all these sweet photos!!!

Busy Busy Busy

Well the last few weeks have been busy!

My sis came home on leave from the Navy, we celebrated my friends bridal shower, Khaleb's 4th birthday, and we went on vacation to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.

It was a lot in a weeks time, and no I am not exaggerating, just 1 week.

My family is all smiles as we enjoy spending time with Jess, and here are a few photos from the time she has been home.

The blessing so family keeps on giving!
