Vintage Kitsch'n: Blueberry Peach Cobbler

Recipe: Variation on Cherry Cobbler
From: Betty Crocker Good and Easy Cookbook

Instead of the cherry cobbler, I used peaches and blueberries since that's what I had on hand.

Creative Cookery: I do what I want
Instead of canned pie filling, I used a mix of fruit, sugar, cornstarch and cinnamon.  I also substituted Trader Joe's Multigrain baking mix for the Bisquick.

Vintage Wares:
Pyrex Square Flowers for mixing and  Spring Blossom for serving.

Verdict: Blue Ribbon
This is actually a recipe I have been using for years. My mother's cobbler recipe is almost identical. I've just never seen it written down before. Nor have I, or would I, ever use a canned  filling.

Thrifts of Terror: The Scream

I don't even know where to begin with this.
The Carol Channing hair.
The frilly dress and apparent lack of arms.
The perpetual lopsided scream. (or yawn?)

Seen at The Barn Sale Hamden, CT
Special appearance by Dan.

The month of June has been nuts.
The blog has been totally neglected.
But now I'm back to posting Thrifts of Terror if nothing else.
