Mama's Blackberry Cobbler & a Granola GIVEAWAY!!!!

Every year about this time, my buddy Aaron brings me a big ole bag of fresh, hand-picked blackberries from his family's berry bushes. Last year, I froze most of them for smoothies, but this year, I was cravin' cobbler — my Mama's Blackberry Cobbler to be specific:

It's naturally vegan, and since it's a family recipe, this one is definitely going in my cookbook. It's really quite simple — fresh, juicy blackberries and sugar are baked under a whole wheat crust topped with chunky turbinado sugar.

As it cooks, the berry juice creeps over the top crust. Just look at that gorgeous juice!:

A warm slice of this was perfect with a scoop of Soy Delicious Blueberry Cheesecake ice cream on the side.

Now for the giveaway: Remember my MixMyGranola post from a few days ago? I won a $20 gift certificate to create my own customized granola, and now the nice folks at MixMyGranola want to give another such certificate to one lucky random commenter from my blog.

At MixMyGranola.com, you can choose your granola base (don't get the French vanilla ... it's not vegan ... I learned the hard way ... but the regular organic granola base is vegan), dried fruit and nuts, candy, and health powder supplements to create your very own personalized granola.

How do you win? Just head over to the MixMyGranola site and look through their customizable granola options. You can make a mix without going through the checkout. Then report back to my blog with a comment on your dream granola combo. In one week (next Wednesday, July 22nd), I'll use a random number generator to pick one lucky winner. Happy Granola-ing!!!
