Like I always say, “Peach Season is the Best Season!”  And, I am coming at you with one of my favorite peach cobbler recipes!  It is super easy, and guess what?  I also have a Gluten Free Peach Cobbler recipe to share with you too.  It’s like a two for one deal today!

And, while we are talking about Peach season.  If you haven’t tried my Fresh Peach Cream Pie recipe, well then stop what you are doing right now and head over there and pick up some extra peaches and make that recipe too.  I am telling you, you won’t be disappointed!  It’s been a favorite of many over the years, and my number one recipe of choice when fresh peaches are in season!

Anyway, back to the Cobbler!  My friend Miko shared her cobbler recipe with me years ago, and I’ve made a few adjustments, and we have enjoyed this cobbler over the years!  I wanted to get it written up somewhere because every time I make it on instagram, I get so many questions about the recipe!  So here you go!  And, stay tuned for the gluten-free version below!  You can always substitute the original recipe for gluten-free flour.  We have also tried that in the past, and it has been great!  This new Gluten-free recipe is a little different, and I like the combination of flavors it brings!

Easy Gourmet Holiday Food

Easy Gourmet Holiday Food

Every year I say I am going to slow down and enjoy the Holidays. Then, in one way or another things get busy, the stress sets in, and I am back to feeling overwhelmed.  Well, not this year!  I plan to enjoy the Holidays, simplify and let go of the things that don’t matter as much!

While I absolutely love being in the kitchen creating and cooking, during the holidays I find myself so busy with all the extra activities, and fun. 

Easy Holiday Food with Harry & David

I love that Harry & David Gourmet offers gourmet options created for everyday entertaining with elegance and ease when you need to take the stress out of bringing amazing food to the holiday table. I love that you can have items in the freezer ahead of time for when a holiday event pops up, and you can have confidence that you are prepared and have options at a moments notice.  I put together a dinner party complete with a create your own ham and turkey feast, the ultimate charcuterie and cheese board, a maple pumpkin layer cake.

Soft Thick and Chewy Gingerbread Cookies // Santa Bruce

September 21, 2018

Soft and Chewy Gingerbread Cookie Recipe

You may be thinking, wait? What? Christmas?  But, I’m telling you, it will be here before you know it!  We are back partnering with Disney Book Group on this sponsored post to introduce you to their newly released book, Santa Bruce by Ryan T. Higgins!

This adorable book is about a bit of a grumpy bear named Bruce who gets mistaken for Santa Claus by his forest neighbors. But, that doesn’t stop the whole forest from lining up to give him their Christmas wishes when he becomes the victim of mistaken identity.

It was fun to see my kids cuddled up to read about poor Santa Bruce who just can’t catch a break!  And, now of course my kids have Christmas on their minds and are all ready with their wishlists for Santa in September, ha!  Like I said, it will be here before we know it!

One thing I do love the most about the upcoming season is the Holiday traditions!  We love to bake treats, and hand them out to friends and neighbors spreading holiday cheer! The kids of course, always leave a plate out for Santa Claus, making sure to stay on the nice list.

I’ve been working on perfecting my gingerbread cookie recipe over the past year, and I think I’ve done it!  They are thick, flavorful, soft, and chewy!  Just the way I like them!  The kids love helping, and I love our time in the kitchen together!
