Not Really A Cook, But I Can Mix

Lots of bloggers are apparently good cooks, unfortunately I'm not. But I can mix stuff up to create a homemade taste. We eat out a lot, but lately I've been trying to eat at home simply because it's healthier and has more fiber.

Here's a quickie way to mix up some cherry cobbler:

Start with a can of cherry pie mix and a can of cherries. Mix them together. Put the mixture in a baking dish.

For the topping: mix a half cube of softened butter, about 1/3 cup of flour and 2/3 cup of oatmeal. Add enough light brown sugar to make you satisfied with the sweetness of it. We tend to use less than most people would, so you be the judge. If pressed for an exact amount, I'd say 1/3 of a cup of brown sugar.

Slop this mixture in globs randomly around the top of the cherry mixture. Bake at about 350 for about 30 mins, or until the cherries are bubbling and the crumbled top is light brown. Add some ice cream if you like. We like it best hot out of the oven. You get the picture.


  1. I'm like you--I'm not much for cooking but better for eating! :-) I used to make this all the time, and have forgotten about it, THANKS for the reminder!

  2. I'm not a cherry fan but that sure would be good with peaches or apples!

  3. Now that is a nice easy recipe. I like it. Thank you!
