Berry Crisp - mommaduck

Berry Crisp
Recipe by: Stephanie Stanley

My family LOVES the berries of cobblers
and the topping of apple crisps.
So I came up with this combination. Enjoy!

Preheat oven to 350F.

In medium bowl:
10 cups frozen berries, thawed*
2/3-cup sugar
3 Tbsp. cornstarch
Toss lightly to coat.

(*If using fresh berries decrease cornstarch to 1 Tbsp.)

Spoon berries into 11 x 13 baking dish.
Spread streusel topping evenly over berries.
Bake 40 minutes, until topping is browned and fruit is bubbly.
Best served warm the first day. Cover and refrigerate leftovers.

Streusel Topping:
In large bowl, combine 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour, ½ cup sugar and ½ cup packed brown sugar. With pastry blender cut in 1 cup (2 sticks) butter until crumbly mixture is formed. Stir in 1 cup quick oats.

Chicken Crepes (Woodstock)


1 cup milk
3 eggs
2/3 cup flour
4 tsp. butter – melted (real butter, not margarine)

Mix all of the above ingredients in a blender. Let batter rest for one hour. Pour about ¼ cup or a little less of the batter (depending on the size of your skillet) onto hot skillet (spray with Pam for the first one), roll skillet to spread batter, turn and remove. Crepes should be thin. Place waxed paper between crepes. Can be made a day ahead. (Makes 12 crepes)


1 lb. of chicken, cut up and cooked (or 1-2 cans of Costco canned chicken – can also use crab meat)
1-2 cans of cream of chicken or cream of mushroom soup
1¼ cup sour cream
Parmesan cheese

Combine the meat, soup and sour cream. Place a spoonful of mixture onto crepe. Fold up burrito-style and place seam side down in a lightly greased 9x13 pan. Pour a little sauce over the top and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Cover and bake at 400 degrees F for 20 minutes. Serve with a slice of avocado (sprinkled with lemon juice) and/or a dollop of sour cream. (You can add more or less chicken, soup and/or sour cream to make enough filling for the crepes.)

Wheat Chili Recipe:)

1 # Ground beef
1 Large Onion, copped
1/4 cup chopped bell pepper
1/2 teaspoon Cumin
2 15 oz. cans of Tomato Sauce
3 teaspoons Chili powder (or to taste)
3 cups of cooked whole wheat berries.

Brown meat & onion, add bell pepper, cumin, chili, tomato sauce. Don't forget to drain the meat.
Add water till you get it to Your desired thickness.
Now...Add the wheat and simmer! The wheat picks up the flavors, so several hours is great! :)

(BTW, an easy way to prepare the wheat is to let it sit on low in a crock pot over night..you put in the wheat & cover to the top with water. You could put 2 cups in then you will be sure to have more than enough!)
