I saw this recipe for Peach and Blueberry Cobbler and I knew I had to make it. I had a kitchen-full of sweet & juicy peaches and I just bought some giant blueberries. One problem. If I made it, I would eat all of it, especially since the kiddos don’t like cooked fruit. What am I to do?

I call my good friend/best-taste-tester/neighbor and ask her a poignant question:


“If I make you a Peach and Blueberry Cobbler, would you eat it?”

“Do you mean, am I on a diet?” she responds. “Hell no! I’ll take the cobbler!”


It took a day or two for me to get around to baking it.

My friend texts me, “When is the cobbler coming? I want my peach cobbler! Did you make the cobbler yet?”

I think I created a monster.

I quickly make the peach cobbler my top-priority and pop it in the oven.

My friend is at school, picking up our kids. It’s her turn.

I text her: “The cobbler is in the oven!”

She’s beyond joyful!

By the time she returns from school and drops my kids off, I am busy taking pictures of the amazing cobbler. I took a couple bites to make sure it was up to my standards.

Oh yeah baby, this is good stuff!

I walk across the street and deliver the still-warm cobbler. Her kids are running to the kitchen and grabbing spoons. THEY don’t have a problem with cooked fruit.

My friend and I laugh and I thank her for sacrificing herself by accepting this gift of the cobbler. She walks me to her front door. I walk back to my side of the street and return to my house.

And I get a text.

With a picture.

It’s all gone. The kids ate it while she walked me to the door.

Now I owe my friend her very own PERSONAL Peach and Blueberry Cobbler.
