TWD: Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler from last year

It's Tuesday!

And despite how it looks, I did not make the recipe this week. Actually, I did make it, but I made it last July. No worries, I didn't wait until now to eat it.

So despite the plethora of rhubarb in my garden (which anyone who wants some, please help yourself,) I did not jump all over an opportunity to use some of it up. Cherries are still quite expensive, and frankly, I'd rather eat them plain than put them into something. There aren't alot of fruits that I prefer that way, but cherries is one of them.

Now I have to admit, when it was announced that Amanda of Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake had chosen the cherry rhubarb cobbler as her choice for this week, I didn't immediately decide not to make it. I had to actually go into my book and look at the recipe before I realized it was something I had made before. Then I had to go looking through my picture archives to confirm it. The last step involved going through my blog archives and finding a post about it. Yup, I've made it before, there are pictures, and there is a post about it. This one here. (Yes, my little helper does look very cute in his hat, doesn't he?)

So the reason the recipe didn't jump right out at me was because I didn't really like it. Go figure, a Dorie recipe that doesn't involve peanut butter that I don't like. How did that happen?

In the end, I didn't remake the recipe this week. Aside from the fact that there were only two of us, and other dessert items that we were not eating very quickly, I could not bring myself to remake a recipe, using up expensive, yummy cherries, in something I just did not like.

Sorry Amanda!

But don't let my iffiness of the recipe stop you from hitting lots of other Doranistas and reading their posts. I will be doing the same over the next few days.

I'm with Susie and Megan. While I'm not sure I wish I had a garden (I have a bit of a black thumb), I'm jealous of those of you with bountiful harvests of fruits and vegetables this time of year.

Oh, to have rhubarb in my back yard... but I agree - making it once is enough if you aren't a big fan.

BC said...

Wait, did someone say they would love rhubarb in their garden?!? Ha ha ha - we will have leave a few roots at their door step.

Be careful... you may end up with more than you want!

after making this the other day, i now know that i much prefer sweet cherries for eating plain rather than baking, too.

I'm jealous of your rhubarb garden too. I can't wait to get my own house with a backyard where I can grow some! You're living my dream.

Camille said...

It would be wonderful to have rhubarb in my garden.

I agree with you about the cherries. They are good plain (or dipped in chocolate.) I just posted about them.

How nice to have already made it and taken pictures! Thanks for the offer to ship some rhubarb my way! I appreciate that. Since we live in the same city, we should bake together someday!!
