It’s the beginning of a new year and all of those resolutions have begun. I am not even going to tell you that one of my resolutions is to eat better because then I won’t stick to it. However, I am vowing to make more time for myself, and that includes waking up early in the mornings to work out. I am not a morning person….at all….so that is HUGE!
I started out looking for a healthy treat to make for this evening, and like all good intentions my day got ahead of me and before I knew it it was 5 PM. ~sigh~ I needed a quick dessert from what I had on hand. Let’s be honest. We all need more recipes like that. Tried and true recipes that are quick, easy, and taste like you spent entirely too long in the kitchen. This Blackberry Cobbler does all of that, and you can make it from ingredients in your freezer and pantry in just minutes! If you aren’t a big blackberry fan, you can make this with strawberries, blueberries and more. In the end….as long as you can eat just one helping, it is actually pretty healthy too! Shh…..I won’t tell anyone! 😉
