About Me

I started this blog to keep track of my kitchen creations. I love cooking and eating. In 2008 I was diagnosed with RA. Food started becoming a huge problem. I needed to find a better way to eat the flavors I love. All the recipes I create are driven by my desire to eat good food that won't create extra pain and inflammation in my internal ecosystem. While the recipes are wholesome, the language is not. I swear. I use the word 'fuck'. A lot! I make no apologies for that. It's just a fair warning. I'm raw and real. Happy cooking! Even happier eating! Cheers! Angie

Peach Berry Cobbler

I love this time of year!  The days have been sweltering, the nights sticky, and fruit is abundant!  I'm finding  myself with so much fresh fruit from my CSA, that I have to cook with it so it doesn't get shitty. Between smoothies and baking (and of course the homemade peach bourbon and vodka) I'm having a fucking ball!  Good thing I have summers off!

Peach cobbler......awe hell!  ANY cobbler is so good this time of year.  Finding a way to make it edible for me was a bitch but in the end I got it!  It's really no more effort than making any other cobbler. Honestly, (and you know that I am my own worst critic) I think it's better than the traditional crap-filled cobbler. The top is so moist!  (Go ahead and laugh!  You know you want to!)  That makes is better in my opinion. But whatever!  Try it for yourself!


In a sauce pan, dump in:
•1/4 cup coconut sugar
•2 tablespoons of tapioca starch/flour
•1/2 cup cold water
•1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk or full-fat coconut milk. Use whatever the fuck you like. 
•juice of half a lemon

Wisk lthat shit up good then put it on the stove on mediumish heat. While that's warming, start adding the fruit. Slice up 4 decent-sized peaches. You can be a lazy fuck and leave the skins on. You want that shit in there!  Also add in 2 cups of berries. I use blueberries and blackberries because they are relatively firm and won't fall apart. Keep stiring that shit up until it thickens, but be gentle. Try not to break the berries.  Once the liquid is thick, pour that shit into a 9X13 pan that's about 2" deep. 

In a bowl mix:
•3 cups of almond flour
•2 eggs
•1 tablespoon of pure vanilla extract 
•1 teaspoon of baking soda
•1 teaspoon of salt
•1/2 cup of virgin coconut oil
•1/2 cup of pure maple syrup (non of that fake shit)

Make sure to mix this shit good!  No lumps!

Drop batter on fruit with a tablespoon. No, you don't have to be exact. That shit will probably bake together no matter how you put it on. It's just oddly relaxing to drop it in by the spoonful. Yeah I know. 

Put that fucker in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes. Then, turn the oven off and let it sit in there for another 30 minutes. I know you'll be tempted to look inside and maybe even take it out early. GET A HOLD OF YOURSELF DAMN IT!  It will be fine!  I promise!
