Suzie Homemaker Yumminess

So, I just got back from spending some quality time with my best friend and maid of honor, MC, at the GH Mall. She was looking for shoes (boots, actually, if we're being honest) for a birthday gift to herself. I was on a mission to find a new purse. She got lucky and found EXACTLY what she was looking for on the first try. I, on the other hand, had absolutely no luck.

These are the boots that she found and that we both loved. They are brand new and she was the first to buy a pair!! What an awesome birthday present. She got them in Storm Grey (as pictured). When they go on sale in a couple of months, I totally plan on getting them in black.

Also, while MC was waiting for the sales lady to bring her the boots to try on, she and I found some lovely shoes for me. I would love to own these and will probably also purchase them when they go on sale in a couple of months. I'm so excited. The shoes are navy but don't appear to be in the picture...just so you know! :)
After purchasing the beautiful boots, MC and I went on a hunt for the perfect purse. About a month ago, I was in PA visiting family for a reunion. We were killing time in a mall and I found the perfect bag. However, it was $99...which happens to be a little out of my budget. Naturally, I thought it'd go on sale and I'd just get it later at another store. Wrong. I have not been able to find it anywhere. Apparently, it's an older style and the only place I can find it for a decent price is (Has anyone bought something from there before?) They have sales on Wednesdays and Sundays that make the price about $80 - including sales tax. Below is a picture of it and I have not been able to find anything remotely similar to it that I love as much as I do this bag. Your thoughts?
And, now, to tie in my blog title. I bet you were wondering when I was going to do that. Now I am! :D While with MC today, she handed me a recipe I has asked for earlier. It is for Peach Cobbler with Blueberry Muffin Crust. How yummy does that sound? I can't wait to make it. I've just got to do it soon before peaches are out of season. And, for your enjoyment, I am going to give you the recipe in this post. Lucky you! (Plus, this is for my benefit in case I lose the paper the recipe is written on. I'm forgetful like that.)

Peach Cobbler with Blueberry Muffin Crust
by MC the Maid of Honor

4 lbs peaches, peeled and sliced
3/4 c. sugar
2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1/4 c. butter

1. Toss together first 3 ingredients in a large bowl
2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat
3. Add peach mixture to skillet; bring to a boil and cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes
4. Spoon hot peach mixture into a lightly greased 13x9" baking dish
5. Spread Blueberry Muffin Batter (recipe below) over hot peach mixture evenly
6. Bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until crust is golden

Blueberry Muffin Batter
by: MC the Maid of Honor

2 c. all-purpose flour
1/4 c. sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 c. milk
1/4 c. vegetable oil
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1 c. fresh blueberries

1. Combine first four ingredients (flour, sugar, baking powder, salt) in a large bowl; make a well in center
2. Stir together milk, vegetable oil, and egg; add to dry ingredients and stir until just moistened. DO NOT OVERMIX - some clumps are okay!
3. Gently fold in blueberries

- Use a wooden spoon - not an electric mixer - to prepare muffin batter
- A smaller baking dish works too; MC used an 8x8" and the juices spilled out the sides but it's fine if you put a baking sheet on the rack below the dish

My mouth is watering now after just typing the recipe up. I'm so going to store soon to get the ingredients that we don't all ready have in the house! Yum yum yum. :)
