New food blog! Peach Cobbler! Exclamation point!

A couple of friends have been hassling me for a while to start a food/cooking blog, and I've finally done it! Now that there are a few entries up, I'm even ready to tell people about it. :) I know there are tons of cooks here far more talented than I am, but I'm hoping to still have some appeal. You can find it at, or you can subscribe to the RSS-LJ feed, frog_food.

And for a little taste, the latest entry was Peach Cobbler:

This was based on a berry cobbler recipe I found here. I've also made it with blackberries from my backyard, but sadly, the pictures didn't turn out so well.


* 3/4 cup unrefined sugar
* 1-1/2 cups flour
* 1 tbsp baking powder
* 1/4 tsp salt
* 3 tbsp margarine (plus more for greasing)
* 3/4 cup soymilk
* 4-5 cups peeled, sliced fresh peaches
* 3/4 cup brown sugar
* 2 tsp cinnamon
* pinch of salt
* 1 cup boiling water

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9″x13″ baking dish.
For the batter, mix together the sugar, flour, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the margarine until the mixture is course and fairly uniform, then mix in soymilk. Plop the batter into the greased pan in a relatively even manner. Neatness is not particularly important.

Mix the peaches with the brown sugar, cinnamon, and pinch of salt, then spread over the batter. You can do this very carefully and neatly, but I was feeling impatient at the time, so I just cobbled it together. (*giggle*)

Pour the cup of boiling water over the top and immediately place in the oven. Bake for 40-50 minutes or until the crust is nicely browned.
