Just Call Me Martha

To end a perfectly beautiful Sunday, we rode the four-wheeler down the road a bit and picked a bowl full of dewberries.

What is a dewberry, you ask?

Well, according to Wikipedia, "The Dewberries (Rubus sect. Eubatus) are a group of species closely related to the blackberries. They are small brambles with berries reminiscent of the raspberry, but are usually purple to black instead of red. Dewberries are common throughout most of the Northern Hemisphere, sometimes thought of as a nuisance weed, but the leaves can be used for a tea, and the berries are sweet and edible. They can be eaten raw, or used to make cobbler or jam."

But if you grew up in the South like I did, you didn't really need to know that. You just know 'em when you see 'em.

Of course, we are on this ridiculous diet so that really put a crimp in my dewberry cobbler plans. But, where there's a will, there's a way.

I made that joker with Splenda and whole grain oat flour and it was ding-dang good!

Amber, does this make me your culinary friend?!

Two snaps and back, girl! That looks DELICIOUS. I would have put Blue Bell Homemade Vanilla on it, but not in front of you. For I am not an enabler.

Amber said...

No, CPQ, I would be the enabler. And my position is not up for grabs.

I will now be refering to you as "My Martha Einstein." Because "Culinary Plants-Alot Smart Friend" requires too many brain cells to remember and type out each time. The same brain cells that have been frozen by the Blue Bell that I would happily enable you to eat.

Girl, you want me to send you my recipe for Weight Watcher's chocolate bundt cake? You can maybe substitute cake mix for something more healthy, but for a diet cake it's G-O-O-D!!!!
