Peach Raspberry Cobbler

I changed the layout of my front page.

Let me know if you like it or hate it!


I’m curious . . . if you’re curious?

I receive a lot of mail like this one:

Hi Jonna,

You rarely divulge anything about yourself.

How come?

Personally, I think it might be fun to learn a bit more about you, your family and your life.

Please bring it on!



So . . . I guess I’m asking you.

Do you want to know more about me, my family, my life?

Well, this is your chance.

Bring it on . . . ask away, and I will do my best to divulge all my deep dark secrets!

Just leave your questions in the comment section below this post.

I will compile all the questions and answer all of them on my next post.

I might even include a few things that you might not dare ask!

In the meantime . . . Make this yummy Cobbler.

My favorite person on earth, loves this dessert!

 . . . so do I.

My Mom made this.

My Grandma made this.

My Great Grandma made this.

My Great Great Grandma made this.

 . . . get the picture.

Don’t forget about the PRO BAR GIVE-A-WAY! – just leave me a comment on my last post.  It all ends on Friday @ midnight

    So awesome! To be honest, they all look and sound divine. Going with my first thought though I’d have to pick nutty marshmallow. It just looks so good.

    As far as what I’d like to see more of, main dishes. I’m always on the hunt for new recipes when it comes to the main course.ReplyCancel

    Such an awesome giveaway. Thanks for the opportunity. If I had to chose one I think I’d go with Nutty Marshmallow. It just sounds good and the picture at the end LOOKS good.

    As far as recipes, I’d go for main dishes. It’s hard to come up with new and yummy stuff and all of yours have been great thus far! Either way, keep up the great work!

    Yes! I’ve always had the same thoughts about your blog…I know that you live in Eastern Idaho, and since I do too, I’ve always wondered what part! 🙂 And, it sounds like your children are all grown and gone, but if that’s the case…how old is your picture on the blog?? You do NOT look old enough to have grown children! 🙂

    I love your blog…you have given me some of my family’s favorite recipes…making me the rockstar in the kitchen. 😉 Thank you SO much for sharing your wonderful talent!ReplyCancel

    What if you want to make this in advance? Should I rewarm it or just serve it room temperature?ReplyCancel

    • Jonna - 09/06/2012 - 8:56 am

      Hi Sheri,

      Well….I like it quite warm and my husband likes it room temp. It’s best eaten the day of,
      but we also enjoy it the next day. Just re-warm on low oven 250 or so.
      Serve with whipped cream of even ice cream.

    Hi Jonna! Is it 2 Tablespoons of sugar or 12 Tablespoons of sugar for the Cobbler Topping? It says 2 in the ingredients and 12 in the directions. Thanks!ReplyCancel

      Hi Mollie,

      Oh dear . . . it’s 2 Tablespoons! Thanks for bringing this to my attention. That’s what happens when I’m in a big hurry.
      That my be a bit too sweet.

    Sorry- I do NOT like the new layout??? almost kept me from reading the blog. I,too, think you look so young!!! Your recipes are great and I looked forward to reading your blog (until you changed it). Myabe I am a creature of habit but it seems more difficult to navigate.ReplyCancel

      Hi Kathy,

      I’m not sure either, just trying it out. Most have loved it because they can see More at a glance.
      Who knows!
