Good evening wonderful people.

Today was an absolute scorcher yet I chose today to run all over town.  When I arrived back home, I parked next to a sweat drenched woman whose car wouldn’t start.  She asked me for help but, honestly, she would have been better off asking a spoon- she would have received just as useless of a response but with more finesse.  Fortunately, my super kind boyfriend put down his bar review books for a few minutes to help our new neighbor.  After a mild electric shock and a few choice French words, the woman cruised away in her functioning vehicle.  Josh completed his good deed for the day!

What was your good deed for the day?

Mine was baking this delicious cobbler!  Check out this bad boy!

It consists of peaches and plums covered in a sweet and crunch crust.  This is a whole grain, guilt-free dessert that you can feel good about.  I got the idea from Fat Free Vegan’s Plum Cobbler, although I made a few alterations.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound plums, pitted and quartered
  • 1 pound peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • 6 oz silken tofu
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsbp lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup + 3/4 tsp honey
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup rolled oats
  • 3/4 cup + 4 tbsp whole wheat flour
  • 1/3 tsp cinnamon

  2. In a small mixing bowl, mix the tofu, lemon juice, honey, and vanilla extra.
  3. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine the dry ingredients.  Pour the wet ingredients in small bowl into the dry mixture.  Stir well until well mixed.
  4. Put the pan in the over with a cookie sheet under it to catch any juice that bubbles over.  Bake for 40 minutes.  After 40 minutes, put a toothpick in the middle.  If it comes out clean, it is done. If not, cook for a few minutes more.  Once done, let is cool.

Yum yum!  This has to be one of the best crusts I have ever had.  I am going to use this for a lot of the pies that I make in the future.

p.s. I made this fabulous Black Bean Potato Salad for dinner and I highly recommend it!  I served it over a bed of spinach.
