Today we celebrated my mom’s fiftieth birthday (her actual birthday isn’t until the eighth, but she and my dad are celebrating together in Florida – nice). It was a really nice afternoon.
We spent some time watching family videos from the late eighties/early nineties, catching up with one another and eating delicious desserts. Oh boy did we eat dessert.
Happy Birthday Mom! I love you!

Oh thank you Pioneer Woman for exisiting. This afternoon, I made my first cobbler using a recipe from The Pioneer Woman. Blackberry Cobbler to be exact. Oh my gosh – this was delicious. I swear, this woman can do no wrong.
(from The Pioneer Woman)
1 stick Butter
1-1/4 cup Sugar
1 cup Self-Rising Flour
1 cup Milk
2 cups Blackberries (frozen Or Fresh)
Melt butter in a microwavable dish. Pour 1 cup of sugar and flour into a mixing bowl, whisking in milk. Mix well. Then, pour in melted butter and whisk it all well together. Butter a baking dish. Now rinse and pat dry the blackberries. Pour the batter into the buttered baking dish. Sprinkle blackberries over the top of the batter; distributing evenly. Sprinkle ¼ cup sugar over the top. Bake in the oven at 350 degrees for 1 hour, or until golden and bubbly. If you desire, sprinkle an additional teaspoon of sugar over the cobbler 10 minutes before it’s done. Serve with a scoop of your favorite ice cream 😉
