Peach Blackberry Crumble

Hey there friends!! I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite things about fall is the yummy, cozy, food! 🙂 Hubby and I recently visited a local pie shop (he loves pie) and he ordered something new – a peach blackberry crumble. It was soooo yummy. As I was devouring it I was thinking how it would probably be pretty easy to recreate so I gave it a try last week.

Are you in a rut with dinner? Are you tired of eating the same things all the time? Ya, I’ve been there. Pinterest is my go to when I’m stuck. I find so many yummy things there!

Sweet Treats {2016 edition}

The Christmas countdown is on and this week I have definitely been feeling the pressure. I have been trying my best to relax and not sweat the small stuff, but some days my to-do list makes me want to throw in the towel! (Anybody out there relate today?? I might need some support. 😆 ) Anywho!! I shared some of our Christmas traditions with you guys last week, I hope you enjoyed reading and maybe got a new idea or two. I mentioned my family loves getting their gift of sweet treats from me each year. And, this week I’m baking away. Today I’m going to share what’s going in these cute buckets (from Dollar Tree) this year! (I’ll link to the recipes at the end of the post)

Homemade sweet treats are a great gift for anyone on your list! I

Grandma’s Lemony Lemon Cake

I mentioned that my daughter had a birthday, but I didn’t mention that my hubby also celebrated his birthday! Yes, our daughter was born on hubby’s birthday! Best gift I ever gave him – and one that keeps on giving!! 🙂

There has always been a struggle over whose cake I make on their day. Well, this year they both got what they wanted. My girl got a cheesecake (which I did not make), and hubby got his favorite lemony lemon cake (recipe courtesy of his grandma).


If you know someone who loves lemon, then this cake is a must try. His grandma was a great cook. You know the kind that doesn’t need to use many recipes. I’m not sure if this is original to her or if she found it somewhere, but man o man is it good!! And it’s super easy too which we all love!

Here are the ingredients

Grandma’s Lemony Lemon Cake
1 box lemon cake mix
1 small box lemon pudding mix
3/4 cup vegetable oil
3/4 water
4 eggs
1 T lemon juice
Put all ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Pour into a 9X13 greased pan and bake at 350 until toothpick comes out clean – usually between 45mins and an hour. The time really depends on your oven. 
After you take your cake from the oven, prepare the glaze. Mix together 2-3 cups of powdered sugar and 5-6 T of lemon juice. 


Poke holes in your warm cake.


Pour glaze over the top of the cake while still warm. 


Spread evenly over the top. And there ya go!


YUM!! 


This cake never lasts long in our house! Enjoy!
