I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Savory Beef and Cheese Cobbler

When you hear cobbler you automatically think of dessert. Well at least I do! But this dinner cobbler is so good with it's spicy meat filling and fluffy dumpling-like top, you might have seconds and forget all about dessert. 
1 lb lean ground beef
1 cup kernel corn
1 cup diced red pepper
1 - 284 ml (10 oz) Rotel tomatoes with chilis
1 cup salsa
1 tsp cumin
2 tbsps dry parsley, divided
1 cup shredded cheese, divided (monterey jack, cheddar)
5 strips of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1  1/2 cups Bisquick baking mix (or homemade mix)
2 tbsps yellow cornmeal
2/3 cup milk
1 egg

Cook the bacon in an oven-safe skillet, then remove to a plate. Remove all but 1 tbsp bacon fat from the pan. Add the beef and brown just until no pink is left. Add the corn and red pepper and cook another 2-3 minutes.
Add the Rotel, salsa and cumin. Bring to a boil, then simmer uncovered for 15-20 minutes. Add 1 tbsp parsley.
In a large bowl combine the baking mix, 1/2 cup cheese, bacon, 1 tbsp parsley, milk and egg. Mix well, then pour over the meat mixture.
I used a 10" cast iron skillet and everything fit in nicely. 
Bake at 400°F for 13-15 minutes. Remove from oven and add remaining 1/2 cup cheese to the top. 
Return to the oven 2-3 minutes to melt the cheese. Or you could broil for a browner top.
Let it cool about 10 minutes before cutting.
