Inspiration with Peach Cobbler on the side

By: Laura

Lately, I've been uninspired to create.  Things have been pretty same old, same old here and I've been needing a change.  Ella got sick two weeks ago, therefore we didn't really leave the house for almost two weeks straight (contagious virus!) and I was going a bit stir crazy.  Finally, on Monday last week, I decided it was time to head to my parents house.   Luckily we only live about 50 minutes away, so it's an easy jaunt to get there and back in a day.

When I got to the house she, of course, greeted Ella and I with smiles and hugs. Right then and there, I could already feel my spirits being lifted.  What is it about going back to the house you grew up in?  I always get the same warm feeling which is just what I needed after a long couple of weeks at home.

While at my Mom's house, I was able to sit and browse through her many magazines like Better Homes and Gardens and Martha Stewart Living.  Both of these magazines are enough to get anyone inspired to create something new.  As I scanned the BHandG, I found this idea to stencil onto fabric.  I recently purchased some white material and I'm going to be stenciling it (with Mom and Leslie's help) this week.  Be sure to look for that blog post, it's gonna be a good one I think.  Not to leave out Martha Stewart Living; I found this recipe  that I can't wait to try! (pork and beans baked together, genius)

So now that I've been back home and have filled my inspiration bucket, I decided to dedicate a dish to my Mom.  Yesterday I made Peach Cobbler.  What a delicious summer treat.  Here is how it all sliced up.

Begin by slicing two cups of peaches and mix them with one cup of sugar.  Yeah, you heard right, 1 cup of sugar.  This isn't a low fat dessert.

As you begin to work on your cobbler batter, melt one stick of butter in the pan you'll be making the cobbler in.  (Make sure to use a deep dish to ensure that you cobbler doesn't overflow in the oven, yikes!)

For the batter, mix one cup of sugar, 3/4 cup of flour, 2 teaspoons of baking powder, and a pinch of salt.

Add 3/4 cup of milk to the above ingredients.


Stir the ingredients together and add it to the butter in the pot.  DO NOT STIR!

Finally, add those peaches.

Bake the for one hour or until the crust is brown, bubbly, and delicious.

Dish it up with some vanilla ice cream for the perfect summer treat.

So there you have it, mom's inspiration is in the house, literally.  The inspiration is still going too, tune in later in the week for a stenciling masterpiece!
