My Grandmom's Quick & Easy Blackberry Cobbler Recipe

With the start of blackberry season, I got excited and made a couple of blackberry cobblers! Decided to do a quick video of it as well... hopefully once you check it out, you'll want to go to the store or a farm nearby and get to making one yourself!

Add this to your pantry check/grocery list:
1 stick butter
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup of milk
1 Tablespoon of baking powder
2 cups of blackberries

Interesting... I know I have reached peak stuff in my life.
 
There IS a limit to how many home furnishings people can buy...
"In the West, we have probably hit peak stuff," Ikea’s head of sustainability, Steve Howard, said at a recent Guardian conference.

Love a good roadtrip!

Getting out on the road for a week or two is one of the things that seems to go in lockstep with America. The roadtrip to discover parts of the country you haven't seen before. There are several things to consider:
1. Consider the vehicle carefully
2. Will you travel solo or with friends/family?
3. Plan carefully but not everything
4. Use tech your way
5. Pack smart!

Whether your next roadtrip is a week-long, or just for the weekend, these tips may help. Of course, flexibility is one of the great things about roadtrips!

Did you know that a cotton bloom is creamy white the first day and then turns pink? See that and more in this short video about cotton plants and the various parts of their physiology.

Story

loves city & farm, travel, photography & communications
Introduction

Thanks for stopping by and wondering what I am about. My passions are photography, travel and agriculture -- love spending time taking pictures on a farm far from home. Putting all those things together its understandable that differences in culture are intriguing to me…. I can spend a lot of time soaking up things. Its almost always a colorful adventure!

  • Photography — My first “real” job that gave me a regular paycheck was a way to get my first SLR (a Pentax 1000). I carried that camera everywhere shooting things that were everyday objects or new sights. I take photos daily with a Canon 40D, a point & shoot or my Blackberry. I rarely open photo software. 
  • Travel — I got the travel bug early in life…. probably from the first trip I remember making with my family. Camping in the Smoky Mountains, a trip to DisneyWorld and visiting Miami! A trip like that opens eyes and I’ve been looking for ways to get that feeling again & again ever since! I've had the chance to go a lot of places people dream of. I'm blessed.
  • Agriculture — I’m a city girl. Born and raised. From generations of city folks (Memphis, TN). Interesting since I have such a passion for agriculture. Luckily I didn’t need to let go of any of my passions for the city! But I added farming while doing an internship with a family friend during college. He gave me a chance to meet my first cotton farmer and I realized I wanted to work with folks I really liked being around! Cotton communications became the major thrust of my career & the crop a major passion.I now work for Monsanto Company on their public affairs team.
Bragging rights
Um.... seems goofy. Not sure I want to brag but if you want to know what I'm proud of or what my mom may be proud of as far as accomplishments, then we can talk.
