Hi All,
I found blackberries on sale this week and bought several of the 6 ounce packages. This recipe only required two of them. The berries were huge, the size of large strawberries. They were perfect for this recipe. I cooked it the minimum amount of time required in the recipe and will make it again, but use a shorter time. Maybe about 42 minutes. It was a wonderful dessert especially with vanilla ice cream on top. Yum!!!

Fruit Cobbler

Recipe By : Restaurant owner, Charlie Miller, Louisville, KY
Serving Size : 6 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 cup unsalted butter -- melted (1 stick)
12 ounces blackberries -- (3 cups)
1 1/4 cups sugar -- divided
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk -- (or more)

Heat oven to 350 F. Pour the melted butter into a 2-1/2 or 3 quart oven-proof casserole.

In a bowl, mix the berries with 1/4 cup of sugar and the spices. toss well. Set aside.

In another bowl, mix together the flour, remaining sugar, baking powder and salt. Add milk. Mix well to form a thick batter that should fall from a mixing spoon in slow, thick ribbons. If batter is too thick to flow from a spoon slowly, add a bit more milk, 1 tablespoon at a time and mix well.

Pour batter over the melted butter in the casserole. It will mostly sink through. That is what it is supposed to do. Spoon the berries over the butter-batter mixture.

Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, until the crust rises over the fruit, browns nicely and tests done in the center. As it cools, the cobbler will settle in the center. Serve alone, or with vanilla ice cream.

Serves 6.

NOTES : Definitions of cobbler vary. This one has a spongy pastry that rises up and covers the fruit from the bottom as it bakes. It works well with a variety of fruits; apple, peach or blackberry.

Bobbie's Note: This was wonderful made with blackberries. It only requires about 42 minutes of baking.

We recently spend two weeks in the Keys. While there Emmett and two of our sons went deep sea fishing for Dolphin (Mahi Mahi) but came back with black fin tuna and King Mackerel. We ate what we could while we were there, but still have plenty in the freezer. Tonight I made a variation of a grilled fish salad.

This is my original recipe:

Grilled Mahi Mahi with Beans and Shrimp

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 2 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Seafood

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------

1/2 28 oz. can cannellini beans -- rinsed

1/2 large onion -- chopped

1 clove garlic -- chopped fine
1 cup grape tomatoes -- cut in half
5 fluid ounces chicken stock
1/4 cup dry white wine
1 teaspoon thyme

cayenne pepper -- to taste
salt and pepper -- to taste
1/2 handful fresh baby spinach
3/8 pound uncooked medium shrimp -- peeled and deveined

1 pound mahi mahi filets
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
juice of one lemon
1 clove garlic -- mashed

1 1/2 cups angel shredded cabbage
1 1/2 scallions -- cut into 1/4" thick slices, white and
green parts
1/4 small English cucumber -- sliced and diced
salt and pepper -- to taste
vinegar and oil salad dressing

Place mahi mahi in a plastic bag with the oil, garlic and lemon juice. Squeeze out air and let marinate in the refrigerator for about 2 hours (check to make sure the fish isn't cooking in the citrus juice). Remove the fish from the marinade, rinse thoroughly and return fish to a clean plastic bag and refrigerate several hours.

Sweat onions and garlic in a sauce pan. Add rinsed cannelloni beans, chicken stock and wine and cook until heated through. Add the thyme and grape tomato quarters. Set aside until you are ready to grill the fish.

Make the cabbage salad with the scallions and cucumber. Add vinegar and oil dressing to taste, but not too wet.

Bring the beans back to a simmer - and add the shrimp, and then the spinach leaves, cooking only until the shrimp turns pink and is cooked through. Do not overcook.

Meanwhile grill the fish until it flakes easily. Do not overcook.

To assemble: Place cabbage salad on a plate, top with the grilled fish, and ladle some of the bean/shrimp mixture over the top.

NOTES : I garnished this plate with steamed crisp tender asparagus and served with crusty bread.

It is wet and stormy here, so for lunch I reheated some home made chili. Instead of cornbread or crackers I made some Corn Fritters to eat with it. Figured you might not be familiar with this Southern Staple, so here is the recipe.

Easy Corn Fritters

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 24
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient Preparation Method
-------- ------------ -------------- ------------------
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup salsa
1 can cream-style corn (14-3/4-ounce)
1 cup fresh or frozen corn (thawed if frozen)
1/4 cup vegetable oil, or more as needed

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper. Add eggs and salsa; mix well. Stir in both corns.

In a large skillet over medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon oil. Drop batter into hot skillet 1 tablespoonful at a time and cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until golden, turning fritters halfway through cooking. Remove to a covered platter.

Add another tablespoon oil to skillet. When hot, repeat with remaining batter, adding more oil as needed, until all batter is used.

Note: If you like some bite, you can mix in some chopped peppers when frying.

They are good as snacks, with a dipping sauce or salsa.

I eat Broccoli, but it is not my favorite vegetable by far. My daughter-in-law fixed this the other day and I liked it enough to pass it on. If you want to make it Vegetarian just leave out the bacon.

Broccoli-Cheese Pie

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 6
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient Preparation Method
-------- ------------ -------------- ------------------
2 tablespoons plain dry breadcrumbs
4 large eggs
1 1/4 cups 1% milk
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce, such as , Tabasco
1/4 teaspoon salt, or to taste
Freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 cups cubed whole-wheat country bread, (about 2 slices, crusts removed)
3 cups broccoli florets
1 cup Canadian Bacon, diced
2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup grated Monterey Jack, or part-skim mozzarella cheese (4 ounces)

Preheat oven to 350°F. Coat a 9-inch deep-dish pie pan (6-cup capacity) with cooking spray. Add breadcrumbs, tilting to coat bottom and sides.

Whisk eggs, milk, hot sauce, salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add bread and stir to coat. Set aside in the refrigerator.

Steam broccoli until just tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Refresh under cold water and drain well. Chop coarsely.

Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion and ham; cook, stirring often, until softened and light golden, and ham is browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Add onion, ham mixture and broccoli to the egg mixture; stir in cheese.

Pour into the prepared pan, spreading evenly. Bake the pie until light golden and set, 45 to 50 minutes. Let cool slightly, cut into wedges and serve.

Note: If you want to give this a fancy name, call it a crust less quiche. For a vegetarian version, simply omit the Canadian bacon.

Served with a side salad and crusty bread, it was very good.

Serving Size :
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient Preparation Method
-------- ------------ -------------- ------------------
9 cups All-Purpose Flour
5 tablespoons baking powder
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup shortening

In a large bowl, blend together the dry ingredients. Then, with a pastry cutter or your fingertips, cut or rub in the vegetable shortening until it is evenly distributed and the resulting mixture looks like cracker crumbs. That's all there is to it.

Place the mix in a large, airtight container (a heavy duty zip-lock type plastic bag does nicely) or divide it into pre-measured 2 cup (don't pack it) portions. It will make approximately 7 portions.

I like Asian food, but don't make it a lot at home, it usually takes to long with all the prep. I was tired of the usual so fixed these dishes last week. I used the Peanut sauce over a noodle dish with a side salad and garlic bread. Great.

The soup I had with a grilled cheese Sandwich.

The fried rice with a side salad and crusty bread.

Vegetable Fried Rice

Recipe By :
Serving Size : 4
Categories :

Amount Measure Ingredient Preparation Method
-------- ------------ -------------- ------------------
non-stick cooking spray
3 medium eggs, beaten
2 tablespoons chili oil
1 teaspoon organic canola oil (or other oil of choice)
8 ounces frozen broccoli florets*
1 cup frozen green beans, any style*
1/2 cup frozen peas*
1/2 cup frozen shelled edamame (green soybeans)
2 cups COOKED brown rice
2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce (can be omitted to reduce sodium in dish)
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium carrot, washed and grated
2 slices medium red onion, diced

*You could also use fresh veggies or any other vegetables you have on hand, such as red or green peppers, spinach, etc.

Follow package instructions to cook brown rice to yield 2 cups. Quick or microwavable brown rice is perfect for this!

Spray non-stick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium. Pour beaten eggs into skillet and scramble just until firm (set). Transfer eggs to a cutting board and chop roughly.

In same skillet, add chili and canola oils to coat pan. Add all frozen vegetables. Cook, stirring occasionally, over medium to medium-high heat for about 4 minutes. Add cooked brown rice and chopped eggs to pan. Continue cooking for about 5 more minutes or until vegetables are heated through.

When vegetables are almost finished cooking, add soy sauce, garlic, red onion, and grated carrot and cook another 1-3

Serve immediately as a main dish or an accompaniment to protein.

Note: I'm not a fan of quick brown rice. Once a month I cook up about 6 to 10 cups of brown rice. I divide it up into meal sized portions and freeze it in bags. To use I drop it bag and all into a pot of boiling water to heat it up. Years ago I bought a rice steamer, but never used it until I started doing this. I create bags of specialty rice the same way.

I don't often eat Lamb. Not because I don't like it, but because on a limited income budget, it is just very expensive. My grocer had Lamb on sale the other day, so I bought some. I looked through my recipes, but because I don't cook it often, my selection was limited. I called a friend, who cooks Lamb a lot, for her suggestions. I wanted a tried and true recipe so as not to ruin my meat.

This what she suggested and it was simple but good.

2 tablespoons bread crumbs, coarse, dried
1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Turn it over and spread 2 teaspoons mustard over the meat. Sprinkle the breadcrumb mixture over the mustard. Transfer the lamb to the oven and roast until a thermometer inserted in the center registers 140°F for medium-rare, 15 to 20 minutes. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil to keep warm.

4. Return the pan to medium-high heat (be careful: the handle will still be hot). Add shallots, the remaining 1/2 teaspoon rosemary, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon pepper and cook, stirring constantly, until starting to soften, about 1 minute.
