Anyway, I am so disgusted by the news I can’t stand it anymore.
Behind the scenes around here people are searching for quiche from scratch and the soup I did once here for Uppity — well today you are going to get a dessert!
So simple and fab you won’t even believe it.
This cobbler can be made by:
1. foraging for wild berries…
2. living near a farmer’s market…
3. deciding to use frozen ones… ahem.
Take two bags — one blackberries and one raspberries and drop them into a baking dish — while still frozen.
For the topping:
I cup of flour, 1 and a half cups of sugar, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 2 eggs.
Mix the above together.
Melt one stick of butter.
Put the topping over the berries, press down into a crust and pour the butter over the top of that — some berries can peek through for effect…
Bake about 40 minutes until golden at 375.
Serve this plain or with vanilla ice cream —
This is no fail, totally fab, and guaranteed to make people smile and want seconds and thirds.
I am deciding whether I want to teach cooking just for fun based on the number of people who don’t seem to know how.
I must have 300 cookbooks from my corporate days and so on. Well?
I am bored. Bored. BORED.
Yesterday I did do a nice pastel though — I amused myself this morning by looking at Craigslist.
To take my mind off all the bad news. I can’t remember a time when everything seemed so bad as right now. I really can’t. It’s just disgusting.
Anyway, what I would like to be doing is making a bunch of cobblers for friends — so, here is my virtual cobbler and you can think of me when you make it.
I think I wasn’t wife material, but, I did teach myself to cook all kinds of things for him — like society dictated to me that I should.
In the early years…
