Welcome and Blackberry Cobbler

Hey and welcome to my blog, whoever you are.

I've been talking about starting a blog for a while and now I've finally done it.  It may not be as cool and fancy as some of the ones I follow using my trusty Google Reader, but it's mine.

You may ask what is this Google Reader and where can I get one.  Check out the link.  Google's greatest invention.  I put all my blogs in it and I only have to go to one place to read all the newest (or oldest) posts.  It makes my life easy.  You are welcome to get Google Reader and add me to it :)

So, that's my long, drawn-out welcome.  Now, the good stuff.

Apparently, my brother-in-law, The Chad, is OBSESSED with blackberry cobbler.  Well, I have "The Pioneer Woman Cooks" cookbook, which just happens to have a great recipe for such a dish.  The other night I was feeling gernerous, so I decided to make some (mostly to butter-up The Chad).

These blackberries were huge.

I love my Kitchen Aid mixer.  My mom has been promising for a long time if I moved out of her house or got married that she would buy me one.  Well, I found one on sale, so I bought it myself, well actually she contributed a little.  I just couldn't wait until I was out of her house.

In the mixer is the self-rising flour, sugar, melted butter, and milk.

After washing the blackberries you have to pat them dry, gently of course.

Pour the yummy batter into the buttered dish.

Sprinkle the large blackberries over the top of the batter.  It's looking better and better.

Then sprinkle with a generous amount of sugar.

Wait impatiently for an hour as it bakes and get golden and crispy it done yet?!

AND there it is!!  Isn't it pretty?!  And I made it and it looks just like the picture in the cookbook.  And because it looked so perfect...

my sister and I had to taste it :)  And it was all worth it.

Don't forget the ice cream.  Seriously, it makes it that much better.
