Paleo-Faileo berry cobbler

WARNING The following is NOT a paleo recipe but it is amazing. And you’re welcome. 

  
Ok I make a real homemade berry cobbler about once a year. It feeds my soul. Reminds me of my Grammy. Today I was at Sam’s and couldn’t resist these beautiful strawberries. I already had intended to do something else with berries so one thing lead to another. I came home with a HUGE box of strawberries. 

  
Here’s what you need 

1 1/2 cup flour

1/2 cup sugar

1 stick of butter melted (real butter, it’s important) 

1 single serving of yoplait yogurt (I usually go with strawberry or mixed berry) 

 
Last but not least the berries. Today I used strawberries, but blue berries and black berries are great too. Any combination of these work.
Preheat to 350

Mix the flour and sugar together then fold in the melted butter, the consistency is sort of like wet sand. Take about half pour into a greased pan (I used a 9×9) shake the pan until it spreads out and do some technical “smooshing” until it resembles more of a crust. Now here is the really technical part take a few more handfuls and smoosh around the edges of the pan. 

Boom you made crust. Good for you, Grammy would be proud. 

Now take your berries, slice them if you prefer and mix them with the yogurt. Seriously try this yogurt thing once and you’ll never by that goo they call pie filling ever again. 

Dump the berries in the crust. 

Dump the left over sand, -I mean crust mixture-over the top. 

Bake for 45 min and enjoy!  

One more shot for jealousy purposes.

Pantry soup

   

Hope everyone is doing well out there! We’ve been keeping busy this summer and today was no exception. Summer isn’t really soup season.. But I had lots to do around the house and errands to run and it’s just so easy, this morning during J’s nap I took an inventory of what was left in the pantry (odd assortment, bc its grocery shopping day) so I diced up some green onions, a red onion a couple bell peppers, and 4 or 5 potatoes (not pictured) I tossed all my veg in a soup pot and set it aside while J and I ran our errands. 

Later when we got home I browned up some ground beef and added it to my veg mix with a couple cans of tomatoes, some chicken broth, and fajita sauce (easy flavor, you need something with some punch bc potatoes make it kind of bland) brought the whole thing to a boil for about 20 minutes and then let it simmer until Rob got home.

After letting simmer I added a splash of vinegar from a jar of banana peppers, it needed just a bit of acid to balance it. 

We eat soup all year round bc it cleans out the pantry. This is an easy base recipe but you could sub in or out almost any ingredients. Ah the magic of a stew pot. Enjoy!
