Summer Fruit Cobbler

Blueberry Cobbler

I am going to start this one off by being completely honest.  This is NOT low-calorie, NOT low sugar and NOT low fat.  It is however Gluten Free, incredibly simple and ridiculously delicious! When you see the ingredients you will know why.

Making tasty gluten free baked goods is a definite challenge, a lot of misses to get a hit here and there.  This Summer Fruit Cobbler (I call it that because it is so versatile – you can enjoy it with many different kinds of fruits) is one of my favorite discoveries.  I found a this recipe online about a year ago, however it was NOT gluten free.  I of course altered to GF but the first time I made this it was WAY to sweet, so after a little experimentation I found the sweet spot….so to speak, and today I will share it with one of my favorite fruits  – blueberries….

Lobstah ‘n’ Buttah

I love Lobster. Well truth be told I have an affinity for all crustaceans of the sea, but Lobster is the top of the list. From my first taste I was hooked. Growing up summers in Ocean City, NJ at my paternal grandparents summer home (yes I was a fortunate one) sometime in August every summer a client (or friend…memory is fuzzy) of my grandfather’s would have a crate of live lobsters shipped to the house complete with seaweed and ice, and the annual seafood boil meal would commence. (There were usually steamers as well as crabs boiled in beer….my mouth waters at the memory)….

Just one of those culinary questions I have.  I mean why is it called POT pie?  It’s a “pie”.  Is it because it is made IN a pot? In that case shouldn’t most things have the term “pot” in the description? It confounds me.  These are the things that keep me up at night.

I know I know….I need a life.

But if I had a social life and other things to occupy my brain other than food and cooking, my family wouldn’t be eating half as well.  That and Mama Sis wouldn’t be complaining she has put on weight – like 2 or 3 pounds – get over it! (she has always been the “skinny” sister.)

So I did what any mildly culinary obsessed person would do.  Googled it….

Getting Figgy With Your Mushrooms

Figs, glorious figs!

I love when figs are in season.  Well I love seasonal anything, but figs are one of my favorites.  Black Mission Figs to be precise. I’ve loved figs ever since I was a kid.  I am sure Fig Newtons had something to do with it.

So this is another quick and easy Gluten Free and Vegetarian dish that is wonderful for fall.  Even when you live somewhere where it’s currently in the 90’s, humid and fall doesn’t really exist…Ahem, Florida.  So I turn up the air condition and pretend. So I invented this recipe while i was staying with my godfather in Northern England a few years ago. Ok “invented” is I am sure technically untrue
as I am pretty sure I am not the first person to create this 3 ingredient dish, but I had never heard of it so I invented it in my little world….
