I Love Easy!!!

Posted: August 7, 2012 in peaches, recipe

Yes, I love easy – easy recipes, easy quilts, easy jobs, and an easy life.

It’s less stress ;-). Any way, when I saw this recipe on Bakerella , I just got so excited!!! She calls it “Ridiculously Easy”. The recipe was sweet (I do have a sweet tooth) and it was easy!!! I love peaches whether they are fresh, frozen or in the can. So right after I finish blogging this recipe, I am going to the store to pick up some peaches. I’ll let you know how it turns out ;-).

You need some sliced peaches in syrup.Just dump them in a 13 X 9 dish. Syrup and all.

Cut the peaches into smaller pieces and you can distribute them more evenly.

Next up, you need a yellow cake mix.

Sprinkle it right over the top of the peaches. No mixing. None.

Keep sprinkling until it’s all covered up.

Then layer 1 stick of butter right on the top.
Next, add the brown sugar on top.

Oh this is looking good. So fluffy. I need a spoon. No… I need to wait.

Finally, add some chopped walnuts. These are optional.

Bake it at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes and voila…

I just had to tell you how I spent my Saturday evening. The picture above is from Google – I didn’t take a picture of my dish, sorry, it didn’t last long enough.

So I am making myself some fresh sliced peaches and blueberries to eat and decide to put some whipped cream on top …just a dab 😉 . My St. Bernard, Marcy, gets all excited when she sees food and was jumping around, doing a dance, breathing heavy, and making crazy sounds. She is not Cujo – she just loves food! 

So I squirted some whipped cream on my fruit and then s-l-o-w-l-y turned around, pointing it at Marcy. She opened her mouth wide and I squirted whipped cream right in her mouth (great aim!) and she slurped it right down. Now she won’t leave me alone! She wants more whipped cream. I tested her so that I would be sure it was the whipped cream that she liked. I took out the whipped cream from the frig again – whoa and behold – Marcy opened her mouth wide (and that is a big mouth!). So I squirted her again and guess what – she slurped it down again and then was looking for more.

Yep! That is the highlight of my Saturday night! How was your Saturday night?
