Easy Peach Cobbler with Trisha Yearwood



Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Drain 1 can of peaches; reserve the syrup from the other. Place the butter in a 9- by 12-inch ovenproof baking dish. Heat the butter on the stove or in the oven until it's melted. In a medium bowl, mix the flour and sugar. Stir in the milk and the reserved syrup. Pour the batter over the melted butter in the baking dish. Arrange the peaches over the batter. Bake for 1 hour. The cobbler is done when the batter rises around the peaches and the crust is thick and golden brown. Serve warm with fresh whipped cream

Homemade Whipped Cream:

Homemade Whipped Cream:

Chill a large metal mixing bowl and the wire beater attachment in the freezer for about 20 minutes. Pour the chilled cream and sugar into the cold mixing bowl and beat until it forms soft peaks, about 5 minutes. The mixture should hold its shape when dropped from a spoon. Don't over beat or you'll have sweetened butter!

Book Spotlight - A Slave's Way Out

Winner of the 2007 Torrid Tile of the Year.

They came from different parts of the universe: Catrin Munroe, a navy fighter pilot, gifted with visions and on the run from the alien race that abducted her; and Niko Arrian, a lord of Neris and mercenary warship captain, accustomed to women fawning over him and men cowering from a single cold glare. 

When a vision guides Catrin to Niko, they find their lives filled with a passion neither of them ever expected. Will Catrin learn to submit to Niko’s dominant ways, and will Niko discover the sweet art of seduction and clever manner of compromise?

Between you and me ....
Niko makes me drool 😁and I created him!!

I'd call that, a good thing

Book Spotlight - The Minotaur's Mate

A Sexy Female Truck Driver ... Why yes she is.

During a bar fight, truck driver Serafina Rinne accidentally hits the one man who could ruin her career, Sheriff Gabriel Conall. 

Serafina's amazed at the way her body leaps to life around the brawny Sheriff, and she goes along quietly when he leads her into the Sheriff's station. 

Then Gabe makes her an offer she can't turn down—stay in jail or gain her freedom. He'll drop the charges. All she has to do is help him move some precious cargo. 

As details of the job are worked out, Gabe helps Fina understand more about who she is in a way she didn't think anyone could. Something between them ignites, and when Gabe shows his dominant side, something she's always longed for opens up within Fina. 

But soon Fina's life is on the line. Did Fina just make the biggest mistake of her life?

5-Minute Fruit Mousse Recipe

 [Photograph: Nila Jones]


  • 8 1/2 ounces (about 2 1/4 cups) frozen berries or other fruit
  • 2 tablespoons of sugar (or use sugar, honey, maple syrup or stevia extract to taste)
  • 1 large egg white
  • Fresh berries and whipped cream for serving (optional)


Add fruit to the bowl of a food processor. Process to a rough puree, about
1 minute.
Add the sugar or another sweetener and pulse briefly to combine. If you're
using a different sweetener, add a small amount at a time to taste.

Add the egg white and process until smooth and fluffy and the mixture
has lightened in color and doubled or tripled in volume, 2 to 3 minutes.

If the mixture clings to the sides of the food processor's bowl too much
(this may happen if the blade doesn't extend all the way to the sides of
the bowl), transfer the mixture to a normal medium-sized bowl and beat
with a mixer fitted with the whisk attachment until fluffy.

Spoon the mousse into glasses and top or layer with fresh berries and/or
Whipped cream (optional). Serve immediately or store in the refrigerator
for up to 2 hours (because this mousse has very little sugar in it, it's not
very stable and it won't hold for longer than that).

Serves 4-6            10 min Total Time prepare

  • Because this mousse is made with frozen fruit, you can make it all year round.
  • This mousse makes a great last-minute dessert, because it only takes 5 minutes to make and uses ingredients you can easily keep on hand.
  • The egg white helps leaven a fruit puree into a light and fluffy dessert.
Note: This mousse contains raw egg white. Pasteurized egg whites can be used, though the mousse might not turn out quite as fluffy. Those concerned with the health risk of raw eggs should not make or consume this recipe. I call for a little refined sugar in this recipe, but feel free to use honey, maple syrup, or even stevia extract instead, or leave the sweetener out altogether.

Book Spotlight - Misbehaving in Merritt - by: Alicia Hunter Pace

I picked up Misbehaving in Merritt at the #RWA17 Author book signing event.

Misbehaving in Merritt is a contemporary sensual read. 

I loved the heroine, Audrey. She's independent, spicy and knows how to put the hero in his place!

I can't wait to read the rest of the series!!

Love’s crossroads converge when Beauford, Tennessee, meets Merritt, Alabama, in this charming new series by USA Today best-selling author Alicia Hunter Pace.

Dr. Maxwell Ellis Buchanan IV had wealth and privilege, a flourishing career, and perfect parents. Then his life suddenly skidded into a tailspin, and his lead foot landed him in hot water. Too many speeding tickets means Max must volunteer his time at Merritt’s local arts center. Even worse? He’ll report to Audrey Evans, the gorgeous new woman in town who just flat out turned him down for a date.
Audrey’s fought hard to rise above her rough childhood and achieve her dreams. When a terrible attack robbed her of her job as an ESPN reporter, she retreated to Merritt, with its slower pace and kindly townsfolk, to figure out her next path. The last thing she expects is for it to lead to an arrogant golden boy like Max.
Yet as they work together to support their new community, Man and Audrey find surprising common ground and a chemistry that leaves them breathless. They soon discover that starting over might just be the best way to get to where you always belonged.
Author Bio:
