I wanna say thanks so much for all of the sweet comments you left on my previous post.
I read every.single.one of them, and I appreciate you all so much.
He left yesterday and surprisingly I did quite well.
(of course after I cried hysterically while talking about life insurance the night before)

I'm not sure what happened to me yesterday, but I never took off my hello kitty pajama shorts.
I also didn't brush my hair or my teeth <-- yep.
I did however manage to fill my coffee table with & consume all of the items I'm about to list.
::Heathers New Junk Food Diet::
1 Diet Pepsi
1 Sierra Mist
2 cups of coffee
1 bag of jalapeno sunflower seeds
1 bag of popcorn
1 share size of M & Ms (ok 2 bags)
handfuls of chips & salsa
German chocolate cake and vanilla ice cream
McDonald's english muffin @ 4pm, that I purchased @ 7am
a piece of fingernail that I was snacking on while watching an intense episode of Grey's

The super talented Gina from Acute Designs and Taste is hanging over here today!

Hey just.lovely,things readers! I am so happy that Heather asked me to share with all of you lovely people one of my recipes.

Summer Berry Cobbler
Throughout the summer, I love to eat and cook with berries. 
They are the best during the summer months since they are at their freshest.
One super simple berry dessert recipe is a cobbler. A cobbler is a little like a pie, except that it takes very little effort or baking skills. So, if you don’t fancy yourself much of a baker, don’t worry! This recipe is so easy.

What you will need:
-About three cups of berries - I used a mix of blueberries and strawberries – but use whatever you love. Peaches and plums are also amazing cobbler fruits.

-Whole wheat and all purpose flour
-white sugar
-vanilla extract
-baking powder
-fat free sour cream
Step One:
Wash and slice {if needed} the fruit and place in a square glass baking dish. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar, 1 tablespoon vanilla extract, and 1 teaspoon corn starch over the fruit – toss all to combine.

Step Two:
In a separate bowl, whisk together ¾ cup whole wheat flour, ¼ cup all purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, and ¼ teaspoon salt.
Step Three:
Dice three tablespoons of cold butter into small cubes and cut the butter into the flour mixture. You can do this using a pastry cutter or with two knives.

Step Four:
Mix ½ cup fat frees sour cream into the flour mixture and then slowly pour in 1/3 cup of cold water – stirring so that all is combined and you have a thick biscuit like batter. If the batter is too thick – add an extra drop of water.
Step Five:
Spoon the batter over the fruit and bake at 350 degrees for about 50 minutes. You will know it is done when the fruit is bubbling and the top is a pale golden brown.

Serve warm or at room temperature. I ate mine with a scoop of my almost perfect ice cream on top – YUM!

    i have a story to tell you about when i was pregnant [i am done with all of that now at 51. huzzah!] ... i was about 5-6 moths i think. i wanted sugar cookie but was too tired to 'cook/bake' so i made a batch of the pillsbury kind. i ate all but two [which my hisband wrneched from my hands] THEN i had a >NEED< for White Castle. consumed 3 hamburgers and 3 cheeseburgers and fries AND onion rings AND a vanilla milkshake ... then the cookies ... :)
    i looked down at my tummy and the little person within [no clue at that point that i had a daughter n there] and said, "we only do this occasionally, but sometimes it just has to be done. always enjoy it. there is no shame."
    she's 21 now and swears she remembers me telling her that. ;]

    you remember too :)

    <3 g!
