TWD: Two for One

When I saw the pick for this week's TWD I was actually really excited! Amanda of Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake picked Dorie's Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler.

Reason #1 for excitement: I love, love, LOVE cobbler.

Reason #2 for excitement: I have become very fond of the pink celery, other wise know as Rhubarb.

Reason #3 for excitement: The recipe seems soo easy!

Of course, with reasons for excitement comes reasons that the recipe had to be altered...



Altercation reason #1: I live in Albuquerque, NM and could not find Rhubarb anywhere! I used to be able to find it frozen, but that still wasn't an option.

Altercation reason #2: I actually like an entire crust on cobblers, not biscuit sized droppings.

...So with that I give you my Altered Peach Cobbler made with Dorie's Crust :) (Scroll down for the extra helping of TWD)



Last week the TWD Gang made Chocolate Pudding. I unfortunately couldn't participate in it, because I thought I didn't have the right equipment. But, thanks to those who left comments on my blog saying I could use a whisk I was ready to give that Chocolate Pudding a whirl!



I decided to use Dark Chocolate Cocoa Powder, just because I'm a dark chocolate freak. I also flamed up some mini marshmallows and added a caramel drizzle to the top! I felt like I had just made some fancy high-end dessert, and the pudding just melted in my mouth.



Thank you Bloggers for convincing me to use my whisk, never again will I have store bought pudding!!
