Blueberry Coffee Cake with Cinnamon Pecan

It's July and it is hot as a firecracker outside and in!  I don't know who in their right mind would turn on the oven in this heat!  Well, except yours truly.  I had a reason behind my madness.   Wanna hear it?  Good....I thought so.  I figured, if I turned on the oven and made this fantastic Blueberry Coffee Cake for hubby and the boys, I could get a couple of breakfast meals, or snacks, out of it.....no turning on the oven a second time!  Make sense?  Maybe not but it was reasonable to me.  A huge plus since I, one....used up all the blueberries in the fridge that were going to go bad.  And two ..... I have been wanting to make this for a long time!


Hot out of the oven!

Peach Mango Frozen Greek Yogurt

Sweet fresh peaches, honey and Cabot Greek Yogurt combine to make this amazing Peach Mango Frozen Greek Yogurt.  I opted to make this in the freezer.  As much as I like an ice cream machine...I cannot make a great ice cream, or frozen delight, with any consistency.  There have been a few....Cheesecake Ice Cream, Vanilla Ice Cream are two that I can think of.  Anywho,  I went back to my old ways.  Isn't that the way it goes?  Mixing the ingredients and letting the freezer work for me.  I made this in the morning and by afternoon I had a healthy frozen treat for my boys.

Blueberry Muffins

I found this simple Blueberry Muffin recipe in an old recipe book my precious grandma gave me in 1993. Wow!  When read aloud, that sounds like an eternity ago!  I suddenly feel antiquated....  These muffins are easy to whip up,  slightly sweet, light, and full of blueberries.  Perfect for breakfast on the go, after school snack or weekend brunch.

Apple Cider Bubble Bread

I love using frozen bread dough to make appetizers, snacks, desserts and even meals!  Rhodes Brown-N-Serve White Dinner Rolls is the only one I use.  Don't you just love using them?  So convenient to use, the aroma and taste!  LOVE!   I wanted to make something for my boys and put half a bag of rolls. in a pan, in the refrigerator to thaw while I went shopping.  I returned home with a new apple cider caramel drink mix, by Alpine.  Have you tried this?  It is so good!  My thoughts then turned to the dough in the fridge.  I knew what I would make...Apple Cider Bubble Bread!  
(This is not a sponsored post..I just love this drink mix and rolls!)

Strawberry Lemonade

Summertime:  pool time, fun time, all the time!  Lemonade is always a beverage we keep in the fridge during the summer.  It just speaks of summer.  I don't know why we don't make it in the winter when lemons are in season and plentiful.  I'll have to start. 

This recipe gets better the longer it sits in the fridge.  Although, it doesn't last that long around here.  One of my twins eats lemons .. just as they are...see his little fingers trying to fish a slice out.  I have to sweeten them in some way.  I may have to make this at night next time.  Get your lemons and fruit ready..we are making lemonade!   Enjoy!

Pie Filling Using Canned Fruit

I don’t know about you, but I cannot afford to always buy the expensive canned pie fillings.  Using canned peaches that cost 98 cents, I made my own pie filling.  So easy to do, which I absolutely love about recipes.  Another step to make coffee cakes or pies but hey, I save around $3.00 and that’s is worth the time to me.  As a bonus, I control the amount and type of sweetener I use.  Next time canned fruit goes on sale, stock up!   I know I will!

Pineapple Popsicles

These are the best and easiest popsicles to make.  One ingredient and you have a healthy frozen treat for your children and yourself.  Other fruit would also work well.

Cherry Cobbler

I finally bought cherries today.  YAY, Me!  I just love cherries but really don't like getting the pits out of them.  But...I do what I have to do and get stains on my fingers, my  clothes, well, just about anything that gets in my way.  That's just the way things work for me and I'm good with it.  One of the twins even has stains on his face and tummy but hey, if you're enjoying your food...show it!

We usually just sit down and eat all of them at one time.  Red everywhere...MMMM, that's good.  ~smile~  This time I was determined to make something out of them before they were gone and everyone, and thing, was red.  I decided to make a cobbler and so glad I did.  I cooked it in the toaster oven, and your times may very well vary from the time it took me.  It was at least 10 forevers getting it to brown, for goodness sake!  Oh, so, worth it though.  If anyone has a great way, or even a good way, to pit cherries PLEASE let me know.  I also need to know how to get the stain off my poor ole fingers, They will be bluish purple for quite awhile I suppose.  Are y'all ready to make cobbler?  It's a great one!  It's thin, so double it if you want a big ole bite of it!  By the way, you can use any fruit you wish and it will taste just as wonderful.  Here you go, Sweeties....


Cherry Cobbler

1/2 cup butter, or margarine
1/2 cup sugar, depending on how sweet your cherries are
2 cups, or more, halved fresh cherries, enough to at least cover the bottom of the pan
1 cup self rising flour
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup coconut milk, vanilla flavored, or regular milk
(I had left over coconut milk and it worked out great)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
In an 8x8 pan put butter, sugar and cherries  Heat until the butter and sugar is melted. 
*Throw it in the oven while it is preheating being careful the sugar doesn't burn.  Or, melt on a burner*
Stir flour and sugar together.
Mix in milk until smooth. 
Pour evenly over fruit.
Bake in preheat 350 degrees F oven for 40-50 minutes.  
Until the top is golden brown and a little, tiny bit hard on top.  
Eat it hot out of the oven or room temperature.  Top with vanilla ice while still warm.  MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM, that is so Good!  
Enjoy! <3 and hugs Sweetums!
