Nutrisystem Product Review

By | Featured Posts | No Comments

Let’s be honest, nobody likes to diet. Especially since we live in a world of indulgences and have grown accustomed to living in the land of plenty. When I first took this Nutrisystem reviews on I really didn’t know what to expect but I had some preconceptions like a lot of other people I’m sure of that. But Nutrisystem is not just about dieting, it’s about eating right and getting the nutrients our bodies need through good food choices.

Nutrisystem

Being a child of the 60’s and growing up when many of what we take for granted today for modern conveniences were just coming into the mainstream of society. I can remember my mom battling with her weight issues most of her adult life. Trying everything she could, the tiny scale on the kitchen counter to measure out her tiny portions. The weekly check-ins in front of everyone else that was trying to lose the weight they had gained over the years. It always seemed to be more demoralizing than helpful standing up in front of everyone, they called it “support”.

Grilled Peach & Blueberry Cobbler

By | Baking, Cooking, Crisps/Cobblers, Dessert, Home page - Slider | 7 Comments

There are endless options of food that you can cook on the grill. But what about dessert? I have only grilled dessert a few times, and every time I wonder why I don’t do it more often. It really makes perfect sense, you know? You still get to enjoy a delicious dessert – the best part of the meal as far as I’m concerned – and you don’t have to heat up your kitchen with your baking.

I’m sure you are familiar with the traditional cobbler made with fruit in a baked crust and seasoned with cinnamon and sugar. Well this Grilled Peach & Blueberry Cobbler is actually even easier than the cobbler you have been making.

Last week I shared with you the table we put together for Summer Entertaining. It’s bright and beautiful and goes together in minutes. We also created a really cool video to share with you that shows me making this cobbler, we would love for you to pop on over and check it out.

Along with the Grilled Southwest Chicken Wraps and a salad, we served this Grilled Peach & Blueberry Cobbler.

Peaches are one of my favorite fruits. There is nothing like biting into a juicy, sweet peach and having the juice run down your arm. When choosing a peach, be sure it has a little give to it, unless you like your peaches firm. As with most fruits, smell the peach – if it smells sweet, it should be perfect. Walmart has a great selection of fruit, including these peaches and blueberries.

We chose to cook the cobbler in the Lodge Logic Cast Iron Skillet. There is really nothing that beats cooking in cast iron, and while many are expensive, there is a 12 inch skillet for less than $30 on Amazon!

After the skillet is heated on the grill, melt the butter, then pour in the dough mixture; Bisquick, sugar and milk. Then top with the blueberries and peaches. Any type of fruit is fine though, pick your favorite.

Then a good coating of sugar and cinnamon mixture gets sprinkled over the fruit.

Now it’s time to enjoy a special drink on the deck and let the cobbler cook. Close the lid to the grill and let it cook for about 30 minutes until bubbly and the crust is golden brown.

Straight to the table from the grill and serve with big scoops of vanilla ice cream.

Quick & Easy Dinner

I’m sure you have all had those days that are so busy, there just isn’t time to make dinner. Or perhaps, you simply don’t feel like cooking, it happens to me quite often.

But often times, going out to eat just isn’t an option. I know for us with 3 teenage boys, even fast food is well over $20 and let’s face it, the food is not good for us.  Read More
