4 Books on my Holiday Wish List

Sometimes I'm lucky enough to get an Amazon gift card for Christmas. I've been adding lots of books to my Amazon wish-list lately just in case I'm gifted one this year.

I admit to getting lots of books from the library and from a good friend who is always loaning me good paperbacks from her collection. Now that I'm a writer, I'm going to make a resolution in the New Year to actually spend money on more books. To that end, I thought I would share my list here for writers or readers looking for something to do on the cold winter nights.

Cake Mix Cobbler

When I need a break from writing, I bake! We have peaches on our tree and frozen berries. This is the perfect recipe for using both. Versions of this recipe are all over the internet. This is my version that is tweaked a little to use less cake mix to make it more of a crumble than a cake.

Here is the recipe:

Peach/Berry Cobbler

Grease 8X8 pan

3-4 cups of fresh or frozen peaches and berries
1 1/4 cups of yellow cake mix
1/4 cup of melted butter

Put the fruit in the pan and sprinkle the cake mix over the top.
Drizzle the butter over the top of the cake mix.

Bake for 45 minutes at 375.

If you have super tart fruit, like blackberries, feel free to toss them with sugar before adding the topping. I find peaches are sweet enough and don't need the added sugar. We like to serve it with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Bon Apetit!


The Happy Hausfrau

One of my favorite blogs to read is The Happy Hausfrau.
It chronicles the raising of kids post divorce.  While, I'm grateful
that I can't relate on a personal level, I love her posts about momdum.
She seems like a real survivor.  If you are looking for compelling reading,
check it out, you won't regret it.
