Paula Deen’s Peach Cobbler (vegan version)

I LOVE  me some Paula Deen so I tried to make a healthier version of her peach cobbler. I turned out really great so here is the recipe: Ingredients 4 cups peeled, sliced peaches 2 cups organic sugar, divided 1/2 cup water 8 tablespoons Earth Balance 1 1/2 cups self-rising flour ( I used 1 cup brown rice flour, 1/2 cup garbanzo bean flour, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder) 1 1/2 cups hemp milk Ground cinnamon, optional Directions Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the peaches, 1 cup sugar, and water in a saucepan and mix well. Bring to a boil and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. Put the earth balance in a 3-quart baking dish and place in oven to melt. Mix remaining 1 cup sugar, flour, and milk slowly to prevent clumping. Pour mixture over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Sprinkle top with ground cinnamon, if using. Batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30 to 45 …

jeni’s splendid ice creams

I was visiting family in Dublin, Ohio last week and the visitors guide said “everyone must try Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams.”  I was sold when we walked in and I could immediately smell the fresh batch of waffle cones mmmm! The line was so long (long lines = goodness in my opinion) I was more than happy to wait because you get to taste as many flavors as you like (and I wanted to taste them all). This ice cream was hands down the best ice cream I have ever tasted. So creamy and so creative, after one bite I was already planning what I was going to try the next day. Jeni’s is known for their handmade american ice cream, they use cream  and milk from grass-fed cows and they use fresh ingredients to create whatever flavors come to mind. Jeni’s has locations in Ohio and Tennessee, but don’t worry all my California peeps Jeni’s has home delivery. You can also buy the recipe book at Anthropologie!
