adventures in cobblerland

Do you all read Pioneer Woman's blog?
If not you definitely should.
I could spend hours browsing her recipes.
A few days ago I spotted her recipe for individual raspberry cobblers.
With Summer on it's way out of town I reveled in the opportunity to use up some scrumptious summer berries.

Yesterday I took out my muffin pans, preheated the oven and began to line my counter with all the necessary ingredients.
That's when I realized I was out of sugar (really emily? how'd you let this happen?).
Off went the oven and back in the cupboard went my pans and supplies.

Last night on our way home from a run with our buddies the Barzees, I asked Mr. P if I could stop at the store to get sugar and he happily obliged.

This morning I began round II only to realize I was also out of butter!
So sister and I hopped in the car and headed to the store.

I grabbed butter, some fresh milk and headed to self checkout.
I decided to carry my groceries out without a bag (no need to be wasteful), plopped myself back in the car and laid my purchases on my lap... only to realize I'd grabbed unsalted butter.
Back in the store I went.

Finally home and finally with all the necessary ingredients I tied an apron on and set to work.

I was so excited to FINALLY be baking that I neglected to spray my muffin pans even though the recipe says to "heavily spray them".

So now I'm stuck with this mess...

And a Tupperware container filled with what I could salvage from the disaster.

Maybe this is the man above's way of telling me too lay off the baking?


  1. Oh we all have those days! You just gotta breathe and reboot. Some stuff is a total failure. I once tried to make a no-bake cheesecake with low fat cream cheese and low fat cool whip. It was supposed to be chilled in the fridge and be solid and delicious in 2 hours. 2 days later it was still cheesecake soup.
    Whenever I make something at Mark's parents house, it's terrible. I don't know what it is, but I'm pretty sure for years his mother thought he must be starving with my terrible cooking. :-p.
    Anyway, shake it off and get back on the horse!

  2. Thanks Ellie! :)
    I'm already laughing about it. ;)
