Guest Blogger on The Richard Armitage Fan Blog

As part of the RAfanstravaganza, I have been asked to participate again this year (2 years running is an honour for sure!!)

I have a quirky sense of humour, and so dreamt up the idea of a diary, so take yourselves along to Nat's blog and read The Diary of A Crinkleholic!!

In my dreams!

Oh and be sure to check out her Pick Your Nose may never look at that National Treasure in the same light again!!

Richard Reads North & South

Now you all know I simply had to have this recipe on my blog!

I was first introduced to this delectable delight before GoG made them more luscious in my eyes!!  Loving peaches, I took on a chef who was on an American Exchange programme, he came from Louisanna and as a leaving gift cooked a three course meal traditional to his region.   For dessert, I was introduced to this and went straight home and cooked it for my is their No.1 treat and it has to be amongst the best comfort puddings I know of.

As my friend Penny59 would say....."yummmmmm" but I am pretty sure at the time she was drooling over a picture of GoG rather than a dish of steamy Peach Cobbler!!   Peaches does that to a girl!

Old Fashioned Peach Cobbler


  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup sugar, divided
  • 3 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1/3 cup milk, low fat is fine
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 cups sliced peeled peaches, about 8 medium peaches
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


Grease a 2-quart shallow baking dish. Heat oven to 375°.In a bowl, beat egg with 1/2 cup of the sugar, the melted butter, and the milk. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt; stir into the first mixture until smooth and well blended.
combine the peaches with the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar and the spices. Put in the prepared baking dish. Spoon batter evenly over the peaches then gently spread to cover. Bake for 30 minutes, or until the crust is nicely browned.
Serves 6.

Still Getting To Grips......

Well with so much going on in my life, and everyone elses, I thought that perhaps I needed to channel my energies into one spot.   However, I am still coming to grips with this thing called "A Blog".

I am still posting chapters of my fanfic Bluebirds (a WW2 version of the classic North & South with alot of my own twists as only I love - so perhaps not to everyone's taste or liking, but hey-ho).

In future I will just use this blogsite to feature my work.

I am still tweeking "Wishes" and hope to send that out once more into the realms of the publishing world.

Oh and this is the cover I have for Bluebirds - hope you all approve!
