I’ve always said that if I ever end up on death row, my last meal would be my mom’s peach cobbler.

This amazing dessert is so easy to make, and I admit (with embarrassment) that it didn’t last 2 days.

Pour 2 large cans (28 oz.?) of peaches in a 9×12 pan (I didn’t drain them; next time I will). Add 2 small cans (the little baby cans) of pineapple juice.

Next, a nice sprinkling of cinnamon over the peach mixture.

On top of that, sprinkle yellow cake mix (just the dry cake mix, nothing else). Pour over 2 sticks of melted butter and mix slightly.

Leave some of the cake mix crust dry, that’s the way my mom did it.

Hello Jello Creme Brulee

August 3, 2007

I wanted something sweet tonight.

I needed something sweet tonight.

But what was I to do with a box of instant Jello pudding (Cheesecake flavor; it was bought by accident years ago) and a blow torch?

Kickstand creme brulee!

I made the Jello and allowed it to set. I found a lonely packet of Sugar In The Raw and sprinkled the tiny brown crystal shards over the quivering surface.

One packet wasn’t enough, so I added some plain white sugar and SCORCH!

This was surprisingly delicious. Serve it at the next cocktail party in the trailer park.
