{Gluten-Free} Blueberry Cobbler

When a farmer friend of mine at Serendipity Farms posted that she had a glut of blueberries - along with a special locals' price - I was thrilled. I had her set aside five pounds and sent my mom to the market with a wad of cash.

When the boys saw the bag, they demanded that I make dessert. "Mamma, make a blueberry pie! We want pie! We want pie!!" they hollered in unison. 

Will cobbler suffice?

"Yes! We just want something sweet...not savory," declared the Sugar Pigs.

Ingredients makes one 9"x13" cobbler

  • 6 to 7 C fresh blueberries
  • 1 C sweet white rice flour
  • 1 C gluten-free flour blend
  • 1/2 C chestnut flour
  • 2 t baking soda
  • 1-1/2 C butter, softened
  • 2 C organic granulated sugar + 4 T for sprinkling
  • 1 t pure vanilla extract
  • 1 t pure lemon extract
  • 2 C Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 C whole milk
  • 1 T olive oil

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flours and baking soda. In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until lightened and fluffy. Beat in the extracts, yogurt, milk, and olive oil. Fold in the flour mixture until just moistened.

Spoon batter into pan. Scoop the blueberries over the top of the batter. Gently press the berries into the batter. Sprinkle  the 4 T over the top of the berries.

Bake for 45 to 50 minutes until the batter is set. Let cool for at least 5 minutes before serving.


  1. This made me think that I definitely need to get blueberries into the mix for Memorial Day weekend. A cobbler or a pie. Love this time of year!

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce
