Skillet Blueberry Cobbler with Biscuits

SKILLET BLUEBBERRY COBBLER WITH BUTTERMILK BISCUITS | Bijouxs Little Jewels

This recipe includes 3 things that I love: a cast iron skillet, wild blueberries and biscuits. Together they create this easy SKILLET BLUEBERRY COBBLER WITH BUTTERMILK BISCUITS, another Little Jewel from the Recipe Collection.

COBBLERS

Cobblers are at the top of my simple go-to dessert list. A couple favorites inlude a Basic Strawberry Cobbler and my all time favorite Pumpkin Cobbler. Cooking in a cast iron skillet makes this dessert so easy.

BIG SUR BISCUITS

My Big Sur Biscuits are wonderful, but without time and guests on the way I resorted to buttermilk canned ready-to-bake biscuits, which actutally were not bad. Look at the label for the ingredients many have Palm Oil, might want to avoid those. There are other natural biscuits alternatives to try.

BLUEBERRIES

Blueberries are a household favorite for desserts, breakfast and morning smoothies. My current favorite is Wyman’s Wild Blueberries frozen and perfect to keep on hand.
I love them on my Buckwheat Pancakes with Blueberries, thin, crispy with a nutty flavor.

Simple Strawberry Tiramisu

Simple Strawberry Tiramisu | Bijouxs Little Jewels

Strawberry season is finally upon us. The berries are beginning to show up at the roadside farm stands along the Central Coast. I always pull over and grab some berries, early season or not, they are still sweet. Simple Strawberry Tiramisu is my go-to for an easy, light true Little Jewel from the Kitchen.

STRAWBERRY SEASON

Just as the berries burst on the scene, so does the California Strawberry Festival. 2024 is looking to be a better year for the berries. The festival is being held at the Ventura Country Fairgrounds. The festival is sponsored by major companies and best of all money raised is donated to charities.

SIMPLE STRAWBERRY TIRAMISU

This recipe was inspired from the great Chef Ottolenghi’s Strawberry Tiramisu Cake. Roasting the berries produces a sweet syrup to layer with the Ladyfingers. My changes included sizing down the recipe, making one 5×8 inch loaf. To further simplify, the filling consists of thick Greek yogurt lightened with whipped cream, vanilla and a shot of Grand Marnier. So good. I also used supermarket Ladyfingers, they are usually right next to the strawberries. All the ingredients are easy to find in local supermarkets.

Small Batch Seedless Blackberry Cardamom Jam

Small Batch Seedless Blackberry Cardamom Jam | Bijouxs Little Jewels

Making an everyday jam is quick because they require no canning and take only about 30 minutes of your time. Enjoy Small Batch Seedless Blackberry Cardamom Jam No. 535 in the Recipe Collection.

EVERYDAY JAM

This jam has just a few ingredients and is easy to create any day of the week. I love making these quick jams, my Strawberry Everyday Jam has been on repeat for years.
To branch out I adjusted a jam recipe from one of my favorite books Squirl Everything I Want to Eat. I discovered Jessica long ago at the Altadena Framers Market. She was just starting to sell her jams, they were fabulous, it was easy to predict her success.

EVERYTHING I WANT TO EAT

The Sqirl cookbook has recipes from the almost cult following at Sqirl restaurant and store in LA, very hip. When I moved back to LA after a short stint of living out of California, this was one of the first restaurants I made a beeline to. Creativity abounds at the restaurant. Do not pass on the toasts, or the daily quiche and of course pick up some jam.

BLACKBERRY JAM

This is a very small recipe, enough jam to just for a week. To achieve the silky smooth jam pictured, nothing more is required than patience and a little elbow grease. The berries have seeds and along with the cardamom seeds so sieving the jam takes a few minutes, but the product is very satisfying to create.Seedless Blackberry Cardamom Jam | Bijouxs Little Jewels

TOAST & JAM

There are so many ways to enjoy this jam, however there is nothing quite like toast & jam. Thick slices of pullman baked Pan de Mie buttered and toasted are slathered with the brilliant ruby-hued jam. The smooth seed- free jam is worth the work.
