“Poetry and music are very good friends. Like mommies and daddies and strawberries and cream – they go together.” ~ Nikki Giovanni

Just because I have started to try and eat healthier most of the time doesn’t mean I have stopped making yummy desserts!

I will never give up desserts and I’m sorry, these low cal/low fat so-called desserts (i.e. greek yogurt with honey and strawberries) just does not cut it!

Granted, one way I do cut a few calories with this dessert is to have frozen vanilla yogurt instead of real ice cream. (I prefer Mayfield)

I honestly can’t tell much of a difference.

Strawberry Cobbler

(adapted from my friend Ann Dunn of Cullman, AL)

  • 1 stick butter
  • 1 cup self rising flour
  • 1 ½ cup sugar (divided)
  • 1 cup milk
  • 3 cups strawberries, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350°.

Melt butter in a 2 quart casserole dish (I just put the butter in the pan and place in the oven while it preheats – but don’t let it start to bubble).

Mix flour, milk and 1 cup of sugar in a bowl and pour on top of melted butter.

In a separate bowl, toss strawberries with lemon juice and then mix in ½ cup sugar.

Pour strawberries over flour mixture.

Bake for 35-45 minutes or until golden brown.

Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.


Oh my. This is slap ‘yo mama good!!
