Today I am bringing out the Slow Cooker…..again. If it will keep my kitchen cooler, me cooler, and the girls (Stella and Paloma) cooler, then BRING IT! I have a dessert ready for Sir Streusel every time he returns home from work. He spends four days a week out of town which means eating out and no desserts. He said he would never waste calories on restaurant desserts when he gets the good stuff at home. My heart zings every time I hear him say that. When he gets home from this trip, a perfectly delicious Cherry and Pineapple Cobbler will be waiting for him that I didn’t even break a sweat while making.
This is ridiculously easy. It is so easy I am almost afraid to share, almost. If you can open cans you can do this! You could also use whatever fruit your heart desired. Blackberries, blueberries, peaches, whatever you want!
Layer your Slow Cooker with:
1 can cherry pie filling
1 can crushed pineapples with juice
1 box yellow cake mix
½ cup sweetened coconut flakes
Then drizzle melted butter all over everything because everything is happy when it is drenched in butter.
Cook on high for 3 hours. During this time, polish your toenails, dance with “It’s Alright” by my Tom Jones turned up as loud as it can be, take a nap, or dance to anything by Donny Osmond. That’s what I do anyway…….
Don’t heat up your kitchen and get all sweaty, heat up your slow cooker. Save the sweatin’ for Tom Jones or Donny Osmond!
WARNING WARNING WARNING: watching video may cause body to sweat and temperatures to rise!!!! Hey, if you want to get to the good stuff, just skip over to 1:15 and watch my Tom get his GROOVE ON BABY!!!
Do you need to go get some ice cubes to rub all over your face to cool down? Yea, I thought you would enjoy that. Is it any wonder I was in love with him….and his hips?!
