This is so yummy! One of the great things about spring besides the nice weather is the bounty of fruits and vegetables that start to make there appearance. I found these lovely blackberries at our local store. I was thrilled to be able to make my aunts blackberry cobbler recipe. I my aunt got this recipe from this neat old cookbook, simply called The Western Cookbook. What I really loved about the book was that the cover was wooden and wood burned with the title and a picture of a cowboy. Too cute!.
Wild Blackberry Cobbler
3 cups wild blackberries
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1 egg, well beaten
1/3 cup milk
3 Tablespoons melted butter
1 cup flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
Combine the berries, 3/4 cup of sugar and lemon juice and mix well. Pour into a well greased baking dish and dot with butter and cover with the following batter: Beat the egg and gradually add the remaining sugar; stir in the melted butter and milk and add the dry ingredients which have been sifted together. Beat thoroughly. Bake in a 375 F degree oven for 30 minutes. Serve hot with plain or whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

This was the cake for my little guys First Communion. It is a strawberry white chocolate mousse cake. It is divine! This has been our celebration cake for all the big events in our lives. It was our wedding cake, all kids baptism cake and all the first communions. It is so light and airy. It is from a local bakery called Ettores.
My middle son celebrated his 11th birthday last month. He was so excited to get his gift; a new bike with all the accessories.
This is my mom with her little namesake, Audrey Frances. She is my sweet cousins little girl. My mom and dad were able to attend our sons first communion with the help of my auntie. I couldn't have done it without her.
My youngest son celebrated his First Holy Communion a few weeks back. It was a beautiful celebration. I love seeing him in a suit. He really wanted a plaid tie and we were able to find one. It was an amazing day! He is our last one to have First Communion. Next year our oldest will celebrate Confirmation.
I haven't posted too much lately. I have to say, blogger updated there system and I do not like it. I have had so much trouble trying to upload pictures and manage them. UGH!
