Peach Cobbler Recipe

2 (15oz) cans of peaches (drain one can and reserve the syrup of the other)
1 stick butter
1 cup flour (self-rising)
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Melt the butter on the stove and pour into a 9x12 baking dish.
In a separate mixing bowl mix together the flour, sugar, milk and reserved syrup from one can.

Pour the mix over the melted butter and layer the peaches on top (do not mix).

Bake for approximately 1 hour.
The cobbler is done when the batter rises and the crust is a nice golden brown.

I hope you enjoy this recipe. Reita from Tn.

Nancy, two weeks ago I baked the chocolate chocolate chip dessert bread. With just the 2 of us it took a time to finish it. I'm going to make it again this week-end. We have had this dessert bread with ice cream or you can use whipped cream or strawberries.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bread Recipe

1, 2 layer, chocolate cake mix
1, 4 serving, pkg instant chocolate pudding & pie filling
4 eggs
1/3 cup oil
1 cup water
1/2 pkg chocolate chips, either 6 oz or 11 oz pkg

Turn on the oven to 350 degrees. You need to lightly grease the bottom of the loaf pan and sprinkle on the bottom of the pan making sure it is totally covered in cocoa. Mix the first 5 ingredients in a bowl. Taking another bowl put chocolate chips in there then add 1 tablespoon of flour mixing the 2 ingredients until all the chips are covered with flour. Put the chocolate chip in the other bowl mixing gentle. Pour the mixture in the pan making it level. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes.

Everyone have a great week. Nancy and 4 legged associates stay safe, stay warm and comfortable.

In the newsletter of 11/14/16 Mary Ann submitted a recipe for Impossible Carmel Custard Pie. There are no baking instructions. Mary Ann please respond with further instruction. Also what do we do with the Coconut flakes mentioned. This looks really good and I hope to make it for Thanksgiving.
Thanks. Ditamac MI/FL

The directions should read

Combine all ingredients except coconut in a blender and blend at high speed for 15 seconds.
Pour into greased 10" pie plate. Sprinkle coconut on top (optional). Bake at 350į for 45 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool completely before cutting.

For Mary S the inexperienced cook. I would not try to do a Thanksgiving type meal as other family is doing that later and it would be pretty overwhelming for a new cook. The topic is so broad that it is hard to address. I would suggest looking on the internet for easy recipes. Some might even be found as cooking with kids type. Casseroles and one pot meals such as chili, spaghetti, mac and cheese are good for beginners as you are concentrating on one dish instead of trying to deal with several items at once. Timing becomes a problem then in getting everything ready to serve at the same time. Learn to make a simple salad and a dessert always brightens a meal Maybe you could purchase a beginner level cookbook or latch on to a friend who would be willing to share her kitchen skills. You will have failures along the way as all cooks do but you will learn and the great thing is that you are willing. Cooking at home is fun, a labor of love, and much more economical . Best wishes to both you and your husband.

I just wanted to make a correction on the spiced peaches recipe (11-14-16) so readers are not expecting a sauce as their results. The recipe is spiced peaches and the peach slices remain intact. Nana in SE Ohio

8 ounces cream cheese
5 ounces Old English Kraft cheese
8 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese spread

Potato Skins Recipe

3 large potatoes
1/2 pound bacon
1 package of shredded Cheddar cheese
sour cream and chives

Wash and pierce the potatoes. Microwave on high for about 20 minutes. Once the potatoes are tender, let them cool for 10 minutes. Once they are cool enough to handle, slice them in half. Scoop out a good majority of the potato leaving only a 1/4 inch from the shell and set aside. In a frying pan, cook the bacon until brown. Drain and place the bacon on a paper towel. Once the bacon has cooled, chop it up into little bits and pieces. Place the potato skins on a baking sheet and top with bacon and then the cheese. Bake at 375F for approximately 20 minutes or until the cheese has melted. Put the sour cream in a small bowl and sprinkle with chives. Spoon on potatoes.

For Mary whose husband is soon to return from working over seas for an extended period of time, I agree that asking him what foods he has been missing the most is a great idea. When our youngest son returned from his numerous deployments in the Middle East, he wanted to eat his favorite sugar laden cereals, macaroni and cheese from a box and every fast food item you can name. He also was thrilled to again be drinking "real milk". A home cooked meal was low on his priority list. I hope you can ask your husband which foods you should buy and have for him when he returns. If you can't do that, you might be able to ask his family or friends for a list o of his favorite foods.

With regard to planning a meal, most people want a main dish, a vegetable or salad and often some type of potato, rice or bread. An example would be beef pot roast, mashed potatoes and corn. Another example would be spaghetti and meatballs, garlic bread or bread sticks and a salad. Many people also want some type of dessert, such as pie, cake, cookies, pudding or frozen dessert. Since you are a novice cook you might want to check out youtube so you can get step by step instruction on preparing almost any food item. Watching a brief video may be more helpful than reading the instructions to a recipe where terms you are not familiar with may be used. vide

Here are two easy recipes you and your husband may enjoy. A slow cooker or crock pot can be a huge help to you. Good Luck and let us know how else we can help you.
