My Favorite Berry Cobbler
 1 cup milk
 1 cup of self-rising flour
 1 cup of white sugar
 1 stick of melted butter
 2 cups of berries (blackberries, raspberries, whatever you like)
 a little extra sugar for sprinkling on top.
 Mix flour and sugar, add milk and melted butter. Add berries to greased baking dish and pour the batter on top.  Sprinkle a little extra sugar on top. Bake for one hour at 350 degrees. Easy peasy! You will love it. 
Shoney's Strawberry Pie 
Have you tried this? You must! It looks impressive and it's easy.
1 c. water
1 c. sugar
6 tbsp. cornstarch
1 1/2 pts fresh strawberries
4 tbsp. strawberry Jello
Dash of salt
1 baked pie shell
Whipped cream
     Mix cornstarch, sugar, water and salt and cook over medium heat. When mixture turns clear, remove from heat. Add the dry Jello mix and stir until dissolved. Place strawberries in pie shell. Pour cooked mixture over strawberries. Chill. It is delicious!
Coffee ice cream with Kahlua and walnuts
This is one of my favorite desserts and it's good all year round.
Coffee ice cream
Roughly chopped walnuts
Kahlua (if you want to substitute caramel sauce, you can)
Whipped cream
Just spoon coffee ice cream into parfait glasses or dessert dishes and top with walnuts. Pour some Kahlua on top and then add whipped cream. Perfect for one of those days when it's really too hot to cook anything! Enjoy...

I've also made the pie with blueberries and blue Jello plus I think I put it in a graham cracker crust. The cobbler also looks really good. Cordella

Those look yummy. I especially want to try the berry cobbler. Would probably use blackberries. But then I would have to warm it and top with vanilla ice cream or canned milk. Yeah - that could be dangerous. I'll need to invite people over to help eat it. Have a great weekend Mary.

Hi Lynda, the blackberry is my favorite but they do have seeds. (which bother some people) I think when I make it again, I'll use raspberries...hope you get a chance to try it.

Just lovely, they all look yummie!! Two of my favorite easy Summer sweat treats are Coke Floats and waffle sundaes. I just love the combo of a warm waffle topped with chocolate, vanilla and strawberry ice cream, hot chocolate, whip cream and nuts.
Okay, now I have a craving!
