what's cooking in my kitchen

Geeez it's been such a week here. Not really busy, just I don't really know what, just a week. Settling in with a new calf I think has thrown me off. I don't even really know why. It's not like I am going in 1000 different directions this time of year.
So I decided that something sweet yet slightly tart would be good to share. One of my sisters had just raved about a Raspberry Crisp she made. Then my other sister talked about it, actually just about anything raspberry she is in love with, and she said how wonderful it was. So I had to make it too, I couldn't be left out of the wonderfulness of it all!. I needed my mouth to water, and make my kiddos wonder what new delicious thing I was creating in my kitchen as they smelled it cooking! I love it when they walk in the house and suck in a loud breath of air and  exclaim that my kitchen smells like a bakery! Hey living on a farm, it's nice to hear that! I think all you farmers get my point here! It's Pioneer Woman's recipe on her food blog, just type in Raspberry Crisp for the recipe! Oh man it's really good too! I had to double it for my large brood, but I highly recommend it. So without farther to do! Lets look at some pictures and get hungry for some Raspberry Crisp shall we??!!

Some yummy raspberries, cornstarch, vanilla and sugar

Flour, butter, brown sugar, white sugar, oatmeal

raspberries on the bottom, flour mixture on top, pop it in the oven at 350 for 30 minutes or so

hot out of the oven and ready to be devoured, eerrr or eaten, which ever you prefer!

mmmm, so yummy. It's good with ice cream on top of it whiles it's hot, if your into that sort of thing!
I don't care for ice cream on anything, so I didn't have it on my crisp. I do like ice cream, alone. Kinda like cake and ice cream, oooohhhh don't let them touch each other! Yuck! The ice cream melts and makes the cake all soggy and wet, eeewwwww. I know just a weird bit of information about me. Just thought I'd share! But if we had some whipped cream, oh yeah that would be good. I told you weird right?! The rest of my family had the ice cream.
Happy cooking all!!


  1. Looks really good! I would have to have the ice cream though! ;)

  2. That looks yummy but some Gifford's Vanilla would be good.
    You're comment about the soggy cake made me laugh. My boys used to put a piece of cake in a bowl and pour milk on it. They probably still do.

  3. doglady- oh that makes me shudder, soggy cake!!! lol!! Funny you mentioned Gifford's Ice cream, they had Gifford's Grapenut ice cream on it!
