Peach Ginger Cobbler

After going to the grocery store and putting away the groceries, I noticed that I had four  peaches in the refrigerator that I forgot I had.  My first thought was to make refrigerator jam. Instead, I decided to make a cobbler.  Since I didn't have enough peaches, I pulled out the blueberries that I had handpicked and frozen.  I thought peaches and blueberries would go together!  And, they do!!!  You can make this cobbler using 8-10 cups of any type of fruit that is in season with excellent results.
It is best to make this cobbler in a cast iron skillet.  I love my Lodge cast iron skillet.  I used to rarely use it but now I use it all the time.  I just used it last night for a pork chop dish with potatoes and onions and a delicious gravy with few ingredients.

Ginger Cake with Lemon Glaze

Wow!  It has been almost 2 years since my last blog post.  There was a lot going on in my life at the time.  I moved back to Pepperell, MA about 1 1/2 years ago into a townhouse and I absolutely love it!  I guess I got out of the habit of blogging.  I also miss baking so this will definitely get me back into it!  I know some of you might consider ginger a Fall/holiday spice (along with the other warm spices included in this cake) but I definitely think the lemon brightens it up and you can make this cake any time of the year.   Thanks Debbie Macomber for the recipe in your Cedar Cove Cookbook.
