So ... I baked!

DH bought some blackberries from Aldi's on his way way home from work last night. He hinted (more like told me) that it would be nice if I could make him some blackberry cobbler today. I got it in the oven about 25 min. after he got home. These were big berries so the pinwheels didn't want to be pinwheels, haha. I'm ready to dig into it now, wish I had some ice cream.

It was so pleasantly warm yesterday, but today is almost cold. The dogwood are blooming, so this must be 'Dogwood Winter.' I don't know what all the 'winters' are. The folks (or somebody) around here have given each cold spell in the spring a different name. Dogwood Winter is right on and so is Blackberry Winter. We didn't have such  when I lived in Minnesota. I suppose it's something like Indian Summer in the fall. DH has his tomato planted outside, so it will have to be protected, young tomato plants are adverse to temperatures 38F and lower ... I hope it doesn't freeze.

  3. That looks so good I can almost smell it. I, too, would have sent the guy back out for ice cream.

  5. I have ice cream. Come on over and bring your plate, I'll put the porch light on for you.
    We had 86 here today and are expecting 84 tomorrow and we're supposed to be in autumn!

  6. Is there an invitation to taste? It certainly looks good with or without ice cream.

  7. We too had a cold front come through here in Kansas City. I think you are right that this is the equivalent of Spring's version of Indian Summer. The cooler season's last hurrah before Summer heat starts.

    I love cobbler and yours looks wonderful.

    Have a great weekend.

  8. Oh-that-looks-so-good!!!!!!!!!!!

    Different names, for 'different' spring/winters. Never heard of that, but it is cool!!!!!

    All we have around here is, "Spring snow is the poor man's manure." :-)

  10. It does look delicious! Yes, it's dogwood winter here in Missouri too. The temps will rise this weekend and sunny skies. Could you give me your blackberry cobbler recipe? My Granny's have passed and sad to say I didn't get the recipe. I do love blackberries!

    1. Sadly, my favorite recipe for the cobbler was lost a few years ago. I found this recipe on the internet. Although this looked really good, it was not as good as before. I don't think the blackberries were very flavorful and they didn't 'bleed' juice - the resulting 'goo' on the bottom was a pale pink and the berries stayed whole. The dough was too crispy and the 'goo' way too sweet. Oh, we ate it, but ...
      If I find a decent recipe, I'll pass it on. Where should I send it?

  12. OMG that cobbler looks good.
    It's supposed to frost here tonight. Sigh. I'm not sure how my recently planted garden additions are going to do.

    1. Got buckets etc? I hope you don't lose any of those tender baby plants.

  13. That looks so delicious, I could forget about my bloodsugars for once. It was warm here, not it's cold, and the wind blows strong outside.

    1. It was too sweet, Inger, probably put you in a come, maybe, kinda sorta.
      Our winds have finally slowed down, thankfully.

  14. Your cobbler looks very nice even though I don't care for any kind of berries. This week-end is Strawberry Festival in Poteet, Texas just north of us. I usually eat Strawberry Shortcake once a year and that's enough for me. Crazy, I know.

    1. I understand about the strawberries - except for jam, I could live the rest of my life without them. So - not crazy in my book!

  15. It looks good; did it taste good? Even without ice cream?
