Recipes to Remember: Berry Cobbler


I have been looking for a good, easy cobbler recipe. Especially with a Costco membership, it’s very easy for me to access large amounts of berries for a good price. I had made one a few weeks ago that was okay, but it was more doughy and became soggy in the morning. So off I went to hunt up another when I found this rustic cobbler.

The only thing I did differently was mix up some aging blackberries and raspberries with sugar instead of using frozen. Still, I was pretty dang skeptical of this recipe pretty much since I started. The “dough” didn’t seem crumbly enough — it seemed more like straight flour despite mixing the heck out of it. While it was baking it kinda goo-ed out into something pretty unappealing but I read in the comments to just keep going even you had to go over the forty minute bake time.

Boy am I glad I did! It was soooo good fresh out of the oven and the smell — unbelievable! Partially I owe this to the amazing berries I know but the crust had a sugary crunch to it that was AMAZING and wasn’t at all thick and doughy like the other one I had made. It even held up to the all important breakfast test that all fruit pies and cobbler must pass — can it still be delicious for breakfast without having be heated up. And this one passed with flying colors! Although the dough did soften up over night it wasn’t gooey and the flavors were definitely still there.

I will definitely be making this one again! Especially because it’s all ingredients I always have on hand. 😉



Recipes to Remember: Cherry Kuchen Bars


This one is long over due! These cherry kuchen bars — otherwise known as “cherry cake” by Izzy — are so easy and delicious they instantly became a family hit.

Originally I saw this recipe linked at the bottom of her recipe for fried rice, which I’ve talked about before, and thought dang, that looks wonderful but I bet it’s a pain to make! Well when I clicked on the directions it seemed pretty simple so I gave it a shot and I’m so glad I did.

I brought this to several events over the holidays and it was praised by everyone who tried it. Izzy perhaps gave me the best praise by walking around to everyone announcing “MY mommy made this!” 😊 Definitely knows how to make me feel good. Even the extremely picky Korey enjoyed it! So if you’re looking for a good, easy dessert, especially for a party because it can make so much, I totally recommend this.


Also, it’s delicious with vanilla ice cream, so you know it can’t be wrong in my book. 😉
