UpSideDown

Good Morning all My Beautiful Gypsy Lovers…. I hope you are keeping warm if you are in my area… as Fall has hit. Brisk Cool Mornings… Brisk COLD Nights~!!~ After riding with T, helping his Ma with suppers…& well not being in the combine, I realized how lucky I was to sit in there with my hoodie & heater, as I froze my little buns off last night helping T move bins!

Since my fam finished up with Harvest on Tuesday, I have been helping T’s fam to finish up! I offered to do supper tonight to give T’s ma a rest, well more just one less thing to think about. So I am making one my favorite dishes that my Ma makes during the cool fall season. But I will share that with you on my next post! Because today I am sharing with you my first ever BAKING experience since T & I moved in together… (yes we have been living together for 2 years… I hate baking & I don’t have a mixer, or beaters.. or anything, so don’t judge & yes those are valid excuses..)

When I got home last night I whipped up an UpSide Down Peach Cake! I was so nervous & almost in tears because I didn’t want it to fail (Reason 110 why I don’t bake often or at all… It usually is a Disaster!!) But my Gramma made this for us through harvest & it was soooooo delicious that I had to have it again!!

I got the recipe from Use Real Butter’s website!  First off… how could I not like this gal’s site… any country lady knows Butter is Better 😉 So Thanks Jen for the recipe!! Check out her blog here for more Recipes! It is so easy!! http://userealbutter.com/2012/09/17/peach-upside-down-cake-recipe/

UpSide Down Peach Cake (serves 6-8…serve warm)

Ingredients

3 tbsps unsalted butter
3/4 cup light brown sugar
3-4 large peaches, peeled and sliced thick (like 3/4-inch thick)
cake
8 tbsps butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs, room temperature
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsps baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup whole milk, room temp. (I used 1%)

Directions

Peel & slice peaches. Place in a nice arrangement on the bottom of you pan. I used a square stoneware pan (Pampered Chef, Love it & use it all the time!!). Next in a a frying pan add the butter & brown sugar. Heat until the sugar has dissolved & the mixture starts to bubble. Remove from heat. Turn oven on to Bake 350.

Next make your cake!! Since I’m not a baker I had to hand mix the cake.. this part was a little nerve racking for me at first because I wanted to make sure I had the right consistency..then I realized… “Hey this isn’t that hard!” 😉 So first mix the butter & the sugar until fluffy… (I kept thinking to myself here… IT’S SO FLUFFFFFYYY!!” from Despicable Me). Next WHIP in that Vanilla. Then Add 1 Egg… slowly mix it in… Then add Egg number 2!

Next add all your DRY ingredients in a separate bowl & mix. Then add HALF of the dry ingredients into the wet mixture… next add your milk… then add the rest of your dry ingredients.

NOW…. Drizzle the brown sugar mixture over your peaches…. Then add the cake batter. Smooth the cake batter all over the peaches. Then throw it in the oven. I baked mine for 45 minutes & it was perfect!! (or so it looks… I have not taken a bite yet). But as long as the cake had pulled away from the edges & when you stick a fork or toothpick in the middle no raw batter comes up. So pending on your oven it can bake anywhere from 45-60 minutes.

Then finally when its done, pull it out & let it sit for 20 minutes or so to cool. Then if you wish (I’m not trying this) you can flip the cake upside down onto a serving plate… this will display your beautiful peaches & carmelization! TaaDaa… its that simple.

The only reason why I am not attempting the flip.. is so far I have not failed on this recipe & I feel that could be a clumsy disaster for me… & secondly I will be hauling this out to the field so it will be easier to transport this way.

 Hope you all enjoy this beautiful Fall weekend!!

Mason Jar Soap Dispenser

Hi All…. well my family was able to wrap up harvest last night… but I’m not off the hook quite yet. T’s family has a few more days, so I best do my part to help them finish up!!

Since I have been a big ole SLACKER.. I thought I would do a quick post for you all. Its a fun DIY project that I did a while back… but haven’t shared with you all yet.

Supplies

Mason Jar

Old Soap Dispenser Pump

Spray Paint (colour of your choice)

Hot Glue Gun/Super Glue

Drill or Punch

Glass beads.. or something else of your choice

First take the tin lid off your mason jar. Find a drill bit or punch that is close to the same size as the top of your soap pump (where it will sit on top of the lid). Center the lid & create the hole. Then put a very small trace of glue around the top end of the soap pump and put it through the hole to where it will sit on top of the lid. Let it dry.

Next I wrapped the top of the soap pump in tin foil. I placed the soap pump lid contraption in an old pop can (makes for a good stand) & spray painted the lid! I used an all purpose spray paint (metal & wood surfaces). You can spray paint the lid prior to placing the pump in the lid, but this is just the way that worked for me.

While the paint is drying, I placed a few brown toned glass beads in the bottom of the jar & filled it up with soap. If you choose not to do this is will still look SUPER cute 😉 Then screw the lid back on & there you have it. A cute unique soap dispenser jar for your bathroom. I am going to make on of these for each of my bathrooms, in different colours to match the rooms. Best part is… if you change the look of your bathroom you can just repaint your lid!

Also I added some teal yarn around the top & made a cute little bow. Ribbon would look great too!!

I apologize as my directions may not be the best… but I’m sure you can get the picture!

Have a great rest of your week!!!

Day 17 – Memories

This was a candid shot my friends mom took of us riding in Mexico. Her mom knew a local from the few years they had been visiting this area, so we went out to see his place one morning. When we got there, he said “Saddles are here.. Horses are there… Ride a few miles that way until you see the ranch”. Then he & her mom took off in his van. My friend & I were not too fond of this considering we were planning on watching HIM ride.. (hence the shorts & flip flops) & we had to ride through “real” Mexico. On the “few” mile ride, on 2 year old Fillies… we got chased by a big ole dog, whistled at by a man with no legs.. chickens running wild.. dogs barking everywhere… No ranch in sight… we were a little nervous to say the least… & a lot happy to see the Ranch! It was by far one of my favorite memories!! & the scared excitement was fun too~!~

Day 18 – Something New – I have many many zucchini in my garden… I needed to decide what to do with them…. so I found a recipe on the wonderful Pinterest for canned “Italian Zucchini”. Cant wait to try them!!

Day 19 – Best Friend – I have two best friends…. 1) being my Brother, who has had my back from day one. Always the first person I would call be it “exciting news” or “troubled times”. Plus we have had more than our share of fun together!! 2) My Man T, who I count on everyday, who makes me a better person, who I share everything with. Love both these guys!!
