Peach Cobbler Easy Recipe

How are your baking skills? Well, I did a thing the other day. I made my very first peach cobbler! You couldn't tell me anything when that thing came out of the oven! And it was delicious! 

I took the recipe from several sources. I watched a ton of videos and googled my little fingers off until I was sure I could pull it off. 

Funny thing. My mother could whip up a peach cobbler in no time. The recipe was in her head. Hers was lightly sweet and juicy. And the dumplings! This was a thickening dough that floated around in her cobbler that gave it a spectacular consistency. Oh, my God! And there was no pre-made or store bought pie crust. Everything was from scratch.  

Well, my mother was a better woman than I because I knew I wasn't going to be making anything from scratch! Let's be real. Regardless, I was going to give my first peach cobbler my best shot!

Ingredients Needed For Peach Cobbler

So, my final recipe was a blend of several that I had found online. Here's what you'll need to get started:

2 cans of sliced peaches in syrup
2 pre-made pie crusts made of dough
brown sugar
ground cinnamon
ground nutmeg
vanilla extract (I didn't have any)

For step by step details of  how I made my first peach cobbler,  watch my video below:

Baking Instructions

Pre-heat oven at 350 degrees
In a large mixing bowl, add the following and stir well:
2 cans peaches in syrup
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup brown sugar 

I like a sweet peach cobbler. Use less sugar if you don't have a sweet tooth like me.

To your peach mixture, add the following:
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

Stir well

Melt 1 stick of butter in a pan.
Add peach mixture to the pan of melted butter and stir well
Cook on medium heat and allow to thicken.
Add 3-4 tablespoons of cornstarch to help with thickening process

Stir well

Line pyrex pan with pre-made pie crust dough 
Pour in peach mixture

*Optional: Make dime-size dumplings from leftover pie dough and add to peach mixture before covering. You'll thank me for this!

Cover the pan with a pre-made pie dough or cut dough into strips for a more decorative look.  

Brush melted butter over the top of the pie dough to help with browning

Bake for 30 minutes or until golden brown


My first peach cobbler was a huge success!

Table Makeover Using Chalk Paint

  I purchased my second-hand cherry wood dining room set online several years ago. I liked the deep, rich color, but I knew I would paint it white. I  eventually painted and upholstered the chairs, but I was hesitant to paint the table. I really don't know why.  Maybe it was its size or the fact that if I screwed up, I would  be stuck with a mess in my dining room. Any way, I eased into the project by painting just the table legs and sides.  I lived with that for two years until I finally got the nerve to go all the way and paint the table top.  How I Did It I used the color Saw Mill Gravy. It's an off-white, but has grey undertones, in my opinion.  I watered down the paint just a little because it was so thick.  I started the project with a paint brush and finished with a roller. To be honest, the paint roller should have been my go-to method from the jump. It was definitely the way to go for this flat surface.  Conclusion I love the results! The table has a nice chalky matte

Rock Garden for Beginners

Got a bare patch in your backyard? Grass won't grow? Create a rock garden!  To say we had bare patches in our backyard is putting it mildly. We had a desert! Over the years, a huge part of the backyard had become shaded by a tree and the desert was getting bigger each year. This combined with our personal neglect lead to a dry, dusty condition. So, we hired a landscaper and lawn treatment expert to help rehab our lawn. Before they got started, I decided to mark off a small area for a rock garden. I've never done this before, but I was confident that I could make this work. So, let's start at the beginning! Where do you get rocks? Your big box hardware store, nursery or quarry carries rocks. But if you live in Connecticut, you should be able to find rocks right in your backyard. We had tons of rocks! I spent a few hours digging up large and small rocks and moving them over to the area that I mapped out for my garden.  Prepping The Soil I used a rake and a hoe to clear pocket

Home Improvement Prep - Avoiding The Rabbit Hole

Isn't it funny that as soon as you start one project, it leads to another project, and then another? It never fails. You think you're going to touch up the paint on a wall and you end up painting the entire room. And not just painting the room, but painting it a whole different color.  The Rabbit Hole And now that you've re-painted the room, the drapes no longer match. So you have to replace the drapes. And you can't just replace the drapes in your living room without replacing the drapes in your dining room because the two rooms are connected and you must have a consistent flow. Right? Oh, and you noticed that the rug is just a tad too beige or gray and is throwing off  the blue in your new drapes. What to do? What to do? So now, you're down a rabbit hole that could possibly lead to endless home improvements.  Who can relate? I had to stop myself the other day as I was about to go down this road again.  Make a Plan So before I picked up a paint brush and hammer, I
