Pioneer Woman's Blackberry Cobbler |

The Pioneer Woman sure knows her stuff. Ree’s blog was one of the first I started following back in the day when I began to teach myself how to bake. That was like, 10 years ago now?

I’ve tried so many of her recipes, and when her first book came out I bought it and waited in line to get it signed when she came to town. I’ve met her a few times since then, and I can tell you that she is just as kind, hilarious, and down to earth in person as she is on her website.

When I first came upon her blackberry cobbler recipe I knew I had to try it. That was many years ago and it’s been a family favorite ever since. >> More


Nothing says summer like a fruit crisp! This one filled with fresh strawberries, raspberries and rhubarb is one of my favorites.

So. I am currently training for a half marathon. I must have lost my mind because this is something I swore I would never do. Running just hasn’t been my jam, and I used to think people who chose to run were crazy.

Well, call me crazy, because I’ve taken up running and I love it! I think I’m doing it just to prove that I can? Plus, it’s also been a great way to get back in shape post-baby.

In addition to running, I’m trying to bet better at what I eat, and I’m trying to reign in the sweets a little better. So when I do allow myself a splurge, it’s gotta really be worth it. >> More


Pear Walnut Crisp |

Last week I was gifted these gorgeous pears from Harry and David. I couldn’t decide what to do with them— do I eat them all or use them to bake something fun? It’s a battle I face every time there’s beautiful fresh fruit in the house.

In the end we enjoyed a few just as they are and the rest went into this pear walnut crisp. They were going to be a pie but I changed my mind and made a last minute decision to bake a crisp instead. And I have no regrets! Continue Reading…


Peach cobbler is one of summer’s beloved desserts, and now you can enjoy it even more knowing you don’t have to heat up your kitchen to make it.

Slow Cooker Peach Cobbler |

We’ve been gobbling up this summer’s peaches by the pound, mostly sliced up and served just as they are— is there anything better? I also love baking with peaches, but it’s been so hot I haven’t wanted to turn on my oven any more than necessary. Then I remembered that I could make my slow cooker do all the dirty work without heating up my kitchen.

Slow cookers aren’t just for the winter months, you know. Continue Reading…


Because your summer isn’t complete until you’ve baked this— a simply perfect blueberry crisp, with a juicy berry filling and crunchy almond-oat topping.

Do you have the same fickleness when it comes to picking a favorite summer fruit as I do? Pretty much whatever is going into my mouth right at that moment is my favorite. But it all can change in the time it takes to bake a crisp.

Last week I was so in love with fresh cherries. This week, thanks to this crisp, it was blueberries.
