Blackberry Cobbler

Blackberry Cobbler Ala Mode

Sometimes you just get a craving and you have to have it. The other night I was craving pie. Not just any pie, but blackberry pie ala mode.

Sadly, I was just too darn lazy to go to a restaurant to get some pie, and had no motivation what so ever to start a pie crust. So instead I did the next best thing: cobbler.

Hot and Fresh Blackberry Cobbler

After digging through my freezer I found a bag of frozen blackberries hiding in the back. Score. We still didn’t have any ice cream, but that’s easily fixed by sending my loving husband to the store. And he did. Brownie points for that guy. Read more »

Anything light and delicate seems to crumble under my hands, and that’s exactly what the meringue is in Pavlova.

Simple Bread Pudding

I’m not normally the type of person to really enjoy eating puddings or a custard. Yogurt is even a stretch for me sometimes. Mouth texture is a huge thing for me with eating, crunchy I can do but soft and custard-ish or gooey really doesn’t do it for me.

So why in the world is this chick doing a bread pudding? Grandma was very generous and let us stay with her during our Christmas traveling, but her one request was that I would cook with her and make her some home made bread pudding. So I had to practice!
