Chocolate Cobbler

It has been a long time since you've seen me around here. My apologies. I really got out of the habit of being creative in the kitchen while I was struggling progressing through the first trimester and now, even though I am feeling LOADS better and finding myself with much more energy than before, I just haven't gotten my groove back. I have been cooking and baking - mostly everyday - but I have been sticking with a lot of my old, tried and true recipes that are already posted here - which doesn't give me a lot of new material. I do have a few recipes saved up that need to be posted so I am going to try to get some of them organized and ready to go this weekend. Check back next week!

A few weeks ago I, like many of you, saw and drooled over the Chocolate Cobbler recipe posted on Pioneer Woman's website. Over the next few days, I saw so many of my beeps, tweeps and feeps (that's my blogger peeps, twitter peeps and facebook peeps, FYI) posting and tweeting about this recipe that I knew I just had to have it. Immediately.

I was instructed by many that if I were to indulge in this decadent dessert, I must serve it with ice cream. Unfortunately, I hadn't received my free ice cream maker from CSN yet, so I rushed to the store to pick up some vanilla ice cream.

This recipe most certainly did not disappoint. And the best part - there are no eggs in the batter so you better believe that this pregnant mama was licking the bowls, the beaters, the spoon, her fingers -anything that had a hint of batter on it. I loveeeeeeeeeee eating raw batter and cookie dough, and I have missed being able to do so because of the raw eggs that is included in most of these things.

If you love chocolate and haven't tried this recipe - you must go make it. Now. And serve it warm with ice cream. Trust me.
