Anyone for a Midnight Snack?

Note to self: If it's one of those days when it's a struggle to have dinner on the table by 9pm (actual time of dinner? 8:37.), it's probably not a good idea to make the fan-fucking-tabulous looking blackberry cobbler that's on the cover of the Bon Appetit magazine that came today (no, it's not the one on that link. That's the July issue. How pedestrian. I've already made two dishes from the August issue. I'm an amazing time traveller.).

Especially after you realize that it's not just a cobbler, something you can throw together in about 10 minutes and bake for maybe 30. This is a Bon Appetit cobbler. None of that fruit and streusel stuff I'm used to - we're talking crust, streusel on top, and a mixture of berries, sour cream, half a dozen eggs, flour and sugar in the middle. It takes about 30 minutes to throw together and an hour and a half to bake. And then another half hour to set up.

So, at 11:30 tonight, I'll be sitting down with a delicious (hopefully, or someone at Conde Nast will personally have to explain it to me) slice of Skillet Blackberry Cobbler with a damn scoop of peach ice cream on the top.

At 11:30pm tonight, I shall toast to you and your uber cobbler.

I'll be masturbating, but I'll think of you.

A time traveler? Have you finished The Time Traveler's Wife, per chance? Nice recommendation, btw; it made for some good metro reading.

Hope your cobbler turns out well. You and Matt have been in our thoughts & prayers.

Be careful what you wish for Mars Bars, if Conde Nast takes notice of your fabulosity, you might end up working for that hose beast Anna Wintour when you make it to NYC... And we all know that Anna Wintour eats babies for breakfast and then lunches on the souls of the people who work for her... I would rather you KEEP your soul.

Overachiever! Dang that sounds delicious!

The people at Conde Nast don't eat, remember? They will have no idea what you are talking about.
I made a salad the other day that took about an hour to chop up. My husband loved it. I hope he enjoyed it because that's the last time he'll taste that one!

Oh please let us know how the cobbler tasted! Hopefully it was just divine and you ate the whole thing--with everything going on in your life you deserve it! Because really, baked goods DO make everything all better. Well, at least they make everything easier to deal with.

It sounds worth the wait. Then again I regularly wake up at night and eat sweets until I stumble back to bed in a glucose-induced coma.

Save a slice for me.

Actually, I made a blueberry grunt for our party a couple of weeks ago. I think it was from food & wine...marvy.
