    Cherry Cobbler

    The biscuits on top of this cherry cobbler are buttery and sweet. I love using fresh cherries, but any kind of berry will work to make a berry cobbler. Cherries were finally on sale, so I used fresh cherries for this recipe. I do not have a cherry pitter, so the thought of pitting 8 cups of cherries seemed like an impossible task! I halved this recipe, and used 4 cups of cherries and baked it in a square brownie pan. If you plan on baking with cherries a lot, I recommend getting a cherry pitter. If you want to make a cherry cobbler in a 9 x 13 pan, just double the…

    Chocolate Cookies with White Chips

I usually warm them up for 15 seconds in the microwave the day after I make them, and they taste like I made them that same day.

    Buttermilk Pancakes

    Recipe adapted from Better Homes and Garden. I must admit, I’ve never been a breakfast person. Once I learned how to make a pancake the proper way, I haven’t gone back. The key is buttermilk in the batter and butter on the hot pan. This recipe is great with so many additions. In our house, we usually do chocolate chips or whatever berry is in season or on sale. In one bowl, combine the egg, oil, and buttermilk. **Buttermilk substitute- For every 1 c. of milk, add 1 tbsp of lemon juice. For this recipe, it would require 1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice.** Mix in a separate bowl, sugar, flour, salt, baking soda,…
