Peach Cobbler
(Or Blackberry or Blueberry)
1 8" x 8" casserole dish
7 medium size fresh peaches
(or 2 1/2 cups of berries)
3 cups of water
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 stick of butter
1 cup of self-rising flour
1 cup of milk (not skim)
1 cup of sugar

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees.
1.  Peel and slice peaches.

2.  Make a simple syrup by bringing 3 cups of water
and 1 1/2 cups of sugar to boil.

3.  Add sliced peaches and simmer 15-20 minutes.

4.  Melt the stick of butter in an 8x8 casserole dish.

5.  Mix one cup of self-rising flour, one cup of sugar, and one cup of 2% or whole milk with wire whisk until all lumps are gone and it is smooth!

6.  Pour this batter over the melted butter and DO NOT STIR!

7.  Gently ladel in the peaches and simple syrup over batter. 

8. Slide into pre-heated 350 degree oven.

9.  Bake 35-45 minutes (you know your oven) until cobbler
is golden brown and crust has risen to the top!

Serve the cobbler while warm and
with a scoop (or three) of vanilla ice cream on top.
This happens!

My husband likes the cobbler to be juicy, so I will often pour some
of the extra warm simple syrup over the top before serving.  If you don't have fresh peaches, you may substitute canned peaches (sliced in syrup).

Y'all know I love to cook. I really do. I love to cook for my family! My sweet husband Gary and my oldest son Jeremy are the two who dearly love to eat.  My youngest son Jonathan eats too, but doesn't get nearly as excited about eating as the aforementioned two of my men-folk. But I love to cook for him too!

Anyway, I am so excited to share with you that my "Gran Jan's Chicken Pie" recipe was published in the newest cookbook entitled Slow Cookers, Casseroles & Skillets from one of my most favorite websites Gooseberry Patch.  Check it out!
Here is a picture of "PAGE 112" which is my recipe!!!  It is a very easy and delicious chicken pie with a biscuit crust.  Sometimes I add vegetables, and sometimes I just make it with the chicken and filling and biscuit top. It is oh so good, like a comfort food should be. 
And may I just say from one Georgia girl to another (that would be to Mrs. Paula Deen): "so you think your peach cobber is good? You need to taste mine!"

I'm just saying...

Thirty-three years ago today
I took your hand in mine,
and promised before God and friends
to love you for all time...
About to depart and begin a new life
happily husband and wife.
A baby-blue Pinto whisked us away
so happy and blessed on our June wedding day.
The years have been full of God's blessings and love
serving our Lord with a call from above.
Two sons now grown who are the joy of our lives,
each of them blessed with a beautiful wife.
Three grandblessings whose lives have only begun...
sweet Zeke, Miss Madie Ruth and little Jackson.
Now older and wiser, and sprinkled with gray...
Still counting our blessings each and every day.
I love you so much, you sweet man of mine.
Thirty-three more will suit me just fine!

Happy Anniversary
All my love always,
Your bride, Jan
