southern roots

last night i decided to enjoy my southern roots (i am from the beautiful state of virginia!) and cook up a good southern dinner.  well, my sweet husband and i cooked the meal together.  we made southern fried chicken... you know, the totally not healthy for you, cooked in shortening, with the skin on chicken.  along with that we had biscuits, gravy and succotash.  i have been trying to find a biscuit recipe that i really like and want to stick with... i found one here.  i think this is my favorite so far.  they turned out great!  we only had these two left...

in addition to the dinner, i made my 'famous' cobbler.  this one was made with what's left of last year's frozen raspberries from our raspberry patch on the side of our house.  we filled 8 gallon baggies up with last year's harvest!  so, as this year's crop starts to come in... we best use up the other.  and there is NO better way than with this cobbler.

here is the recipe for the cobbler in case you might like to give it a try.  i have made raspberry, blueberry, and mixed berry cobbler with the recipe, and they all turn out deeeeelish!

Bestest Fruit Cobbler Around
(for 9x9 pan)
1 stick butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
1 cup flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup hot water
1 cup sugar

*line your pan with unsweetened fruit or berries.  (i fill mine about half way up the pan)
*combine butter, 1/2 cup sugar, milk, flour, baking powder, salt and vanilla to make batter.
*spread batter over fruit.
*combine 1 cup sugar with the water and pour over batter.
*bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour.

i usually double this recipe for a 13" x 9" pan.

hope you give it try!  you won't be sorry :-)

have a great day, y'all!
