a good friend of mine asked me to make a berry cobbler (a favorite of her beau’s) for a birthday surprise. never one to back down from a challenge, i accepted and promised myself that the cobbler would be kick ass.
i had never made a cobbler before, so it was perfect for sunday funday. i knew i wanted to make a blackberry cobbler, so i started by comparing recipes i found in my cookbooks. i finally settled on a modified version of mark bittman’s how to cook everything.
she was planning a romantic picnic under the stars, so i wanted a cobbler they could sweetly share in a pretty little ramkin.
it was planned that i would go to her condo, pick up the picnic supply and set up the picnic blanket spread, complete with warm blackberry cobbler so the picnic surprise was ready for the birthday boy. my mission accomplished, i scurried home in complete hopes of blackberry cobbler success. a little later i got my hopes validated in a text from my friend thanking me with “was lovely-thank you, Faith!!!! xxxxx DELICIOUS cobbler”here’s to many more, faith
