In case you haven't noticed, I've become a little obsessed with Cook's Illustrated/America's Test Kitchen/Cook's Country recipes. It is so nice to pick up a recipe and know from the start that it's going to turn out terrific. I have several cookbooks that have a 70% success ratio. That's about top of the line. Some are 50/50 and others are worse. With most cookbooks you want to try a recipe in advance before cooking it for company. That's just not the case with CI/ATK/CC. Some recipes they've made over 100 times until they got it perfect. I like that kind of guarantee.
My local grocery store had blueberries on sale so it was a perfect time to try out something that used fresh blueberries. The Holy Grail of Blueberry Cobblers was right there in my favorite cookbook.
|Beautiful. The vibrant colors of the berries did not come through in the photo.|
|Stalactites of blueberry goodness. This must be baked on a baking sheet.|
|Chuck's man-sized serving.|

I love reading about the science behind the recipes at America's Test Kitchen. Experiments, science, trial/error....I love it all. I want to be a scientist when I grow up.
Maybe that's why I love
My next self experiment: lose weight while eating killer food. Can it be done? Stay tuned for the continuing saga of me verses the swimsuit. :)
