Salad Dressing

I just snagged this off a friend's facebook post. It sounds so good that I wanted to make sure it was included here.

‎1/4 cup olive oil. 2 T maple syrup. 2 T lemon juice. 1 t dijon mustard. 1/2 t cumin. 1/4 t salt. 1/4 t red pepper. Dash of nutmeg. Throw in some toasted pecans if you have them. Just the right amount of spicy and sweet.

She recommended putting it on spinach salad with cranberries.

Peach Cobbler

I've been loving all of the fresh peaches on sale to make this lately, however you could really use any of your favorite fruits. The first time we didn't have quite enough peaches so I added a few pears into the mix, Yum!

Peach Cobbler

1 c. brown sugar
4 tsp. cornstarch
6 c. sliced fresh peaches
dash of lemon juice
Cinnamon, cloves and ginger to taste

1/2 c. - 1 cup milk (less milk makes it more like dumplings, more gives it a more cakey top)
1 tbsp. sugar
2 c. Bisquick
1 tsp. lemon rind

Combine brown sugar and cornstarch in saucepan. Add peaches and spices, toss to coat. Add a dash of lemon juice, stir. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until boiling and thick. Reduce heat and cook 2 minutes longer. Set aside.

Combine Bisquick, sugar, lemon rind. Add milk. Stir with fork until moistened. Return peaches to a boil. Pour into 2-quart oblong baking dish. Drop batter on top. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Serve with sauce.
