[from saturday's afternoon picking wild blackberries and sunday's afternoon trying new cobbler recipes!]
after picking, eating, and baking awaaaay this weekend, the little babes and i headed back out yesterday evening in search of more juicy deliciousness! and oh. my. gosh. a storm was pretty much coming right for us and still i was like ooooh, but look! MORE! there were so many that were perfect for pickin' and it's hard not to put them all right in your mouth! also, we were fine, don't worry. it was a tiny storm. and we had the golf cart. ;)
but i mean, it's a serious addiction once you get going, you know? you see all these juicy blackberries among the red ones that aren't quite ready, and no matter how many thorns you get in your arms or bug bites you get on your legs, you're like, I MUST PICK THEM ALL!!!!
oh, and i had even forgotten that when madd and i went out last year [literally right before rocco was born], we even had a run-in with a baby skunk! so. you know. just out in wildlife. fulfilling my jungle dreams. [okay, i'm not quite ready for naked and afraid status - have you seen that show?? ha! - but i do have a secret life in my head where i'm just living on a jungle island in the wild and like, i'm really happy there.]
obviously, any and all cobbler baking went by the wayside last year, as the baby i'd been baking was fresh from the oven. so, this year i'm ALL over it. i'm so obsessed with blackberry cobbler!! anyway, the best, i swear, is the standard 1-cup style cobbler. it's unreal. un. real. however, i tried a few experiments this weekend with a coconut flour, maple syrup, healthy healthy, yada yada, cobbler and it was yummy!! it would be especially yummy with some vanilla gelato on top. still, it wasn't perfect. so i'm gonna take a few more stabs at it. probably make the good old fashioned batch at least once. and if i figure out the perfect healthy version i'll be sure to share! :)
ps. i had the hardest time finding a scalloped swim top that was both affordable and in stock. mine's from asos! now they have this one and i might like it better. // and! got these cutest berry baskets!!
