Blueberry Peach Cobbler

posted in: grown healthy | 6

I know this might sound weird but this was the first time we ever had cobbler. Cobblers are American deep-dish fruit desserts with a thick crust and fruit filling. This dish is full of taste and not so big on looks. Cobbler all started when early settlers of America had to improvise with what they had. This was often served as a breakfast dish. It was in the 19th century that cobbler was considered a dessert.

Spa Pedicure:

This was such a treat. Our girls absolutely loved getting a pedicure from big sister. It is important to teach children to learn to take care of themselves. This spa pedicure is free of sulfates, parabens, and mineral oil.

Girls first filled the foot bath with warm water. Then they dropped the Foot Bath Bomb (this was included in the box). They soaked their feet for 5 minutes.

They then removed one foot at a time and Esther applied Solid Foot Scrubs (included in box). Once this was done to both feet the girls removed their feet and dried their feet off. Then they applied the Activated Coconut Charcoal Foot Mask (included). They let the mask sit for 5 minutes. They then applied Light Weight Cream (included). They loved it so much and it was such a joy to watch our eldest daughter Esther love and take care of her two younger sisters feet.

Picking Blueberries:

My incredible hubby took a day off and took us blueberry picking. There is something so magical about picking your very own berries. We went to Bolster’s Hilltop Ranch which is located at 2000 Larsen Dr. Camino Ca. They are opened from 9am until 4pm. They have an abundant amount of blueberries.

  1. this looks tasty and so comforting. Blueberries are perfect at this time of year. Cobbler must be an American thing, though. I’ve never heard of it 🙂
