This week I think that my favorite recipe was for these strawberry cobblers. They were absolutely delicious- and apart from yesterday’s versatile blogger post, it got the most views out of this week’s recipes! Simple and delicious.
This past week featured a lot of dinner recipes and some desserts- but no failures. But don’t worry ladies and gents, I’ve got a great failure lined up for next week where I had epic fail making some sauce for my lasagna that ended up way too spicy.
These were really fast and really good. A classic favorite, really. They’re good with some chocolate drizzled on top as well if you have any top of chocolate topping or chips that you can melt for it.
My first recipe using my ramekins that I bought! These were really easy and so delicious. I can’t believe how good they turned out. Very rich, though- like you won’t be able to finish just one.
One of my dinner recipes! This is a very simple, semi-homemade chicken pie. It’s really delicious- and although easy, isn’t really a “quick fix”. Goes great with carrots and fried squash!
These accompanied my chicken pie. They, like everything else this week, turned out to be really good after I managed to drain out some of the glaze from my pan. If you like sweet or cooked carrots, then this is for you.
Featuring a short cake recipe and some strawberry shortcake parfaits! I had strawberries to work with this week, so it’s the 2nd strawberry recipe. Absolutely divine.
Rufus thinks I’m a versatile blogger and bestowed upon me an awesome reward as such. Because of this, I decided to make a list of some of the blogs that I enjoy reading for others to check out.
Today I bought some ramekins- I didn’t have any, and found a set of 4 at TJ Maxx for only six dollars. So I got them, and then I had to figure out what on earth I wanted to do with them. I have been trying to figure out what to do with the leftover strawberries I had. I thought about making these Strawberry Cucpakes, but I wasn’t sure I had enough strawberries to make them. And, my dad just made a German Chocolate cake and told me that he didn’t want anymore cake in the house. I asked him what I could do with my strawberries, and he suggested doing something with my new ramekins.
My grandmother had this recipe she used to make easy cobblers- and he said I could do that in my little dishes. So I found a recipe online for strawberry pie filling and decided to use it as a guideline for making the strawberry part of the cobbler, since I already had the recipe for the cobbler part. This recipe was really simple and the product was incredibly delicious. I could only eat half of one because it was so rich and delicious. This is good with a dollop of whipped cream, too.
