dessert for dinner... don't mind if I do!

Let's start this blog with a picture of the worst beggin-ist dog ever who has fallen asleep on my shoulder begging for my cobbler!

Made a DELICIOUS cobbler for dinner tonight. Inspired by Aimee since she always talks about having cobbler for dessert and it sounds so good!
Here is the first picture, it's for my 811 friends:

Here it is with the topping:

The method to my madness:
I went to the phinney farmers market right by my house today and got 2 lbs of cherries, a pint of blueberries, a pint of strawberries, and a pint of raspberries. I thought what can I do with these delicious little morsels of goodness? Cobbler! Fast, Easy, SCRUMPTIOUS!
For the base I used a cup of each and gently mashed them with a fork.
And for the topping I soaked a cup of the delicious RAW cashews I got in the mail, for two hours and drained them well. I processed the cashews with 1/2 cup of dehydrated coconut pulp and 4 dates (soaked in the juice of half an orange) and their soaking liquid.
SO GOOD! Would be even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream but I ate it all!
I also scored 11lbs of tomatoes at half price as they were slightly bruised and am drying those for sundried tomatoes

And these awesome bell peppers... I am thinking chili. I might just eat them whole though!

Gorgeous! Everything looks to great! And score on the tomatoes. I should totally get a bunch of toms to dehydrate. We were hoping to have a garden full of tomato plants but some didn't do too well. We're banking on the ones we have left though.

I need to find me some purple bell peppers. I have yet to come across one. Haven't even tried one yet.

That cobbler looks so good. Now I've got to pick up some cherries. Sheesh girl! You're constantly inspiring to get into the kitchen more!
