I wholeheartedly love being on vacation. Just look at this picture from my run the other day.
Because I work early mornings, I never get to do the sunrise run thing. Vacation means I can get up and go for a pretty run, come home, eat a muffin and go back to sleep. My ideal life.
Jeff and I have been on vacation for about a week and it has been great. On our drive back up to Seattle, we stopped by his parents house. His mom was kind enough to save some of the blackberries from their garden for us. So naturally the moment we got home I made cobbler.
This cobbler is reminiscent of the kind my parents would make when I was growing up. The recipe is easy: make a batter with melted butter, sugar, milk, a few spices and baking mix (like Bisquick of Jiffy.) Dot the batter with fresh or frozen
berries. Bake it. Then enjoy it warm, with ice cream.
While this cobbler is a comforting dessert, it also makes a top notch breakfast when reheated in the oven.
