Skillet Blueberry Cobbler with a Cheddar Biscuit Crust.

Sooooo I have a thing for fruit and cheese.

I just LOVE it. Straight up fascinated with it. Love the combination constantly. There really isn’t a fruit and cheese combo that I can’t get behind, but now that I’m considering bananas… things are weird. But still – banana cheesecake. Always works.

Plus, it’s not that odd or different considering the other things I’ve combined blueberries with: basil, bacon, breakfast… lots of b’s.

Last summer I made a blueberry cheddar dip that freaked a ton of you out but is probably one of my favorite snacks to date. I know it sounds strange… but trust me. I don’t think I steer you wrong unless you hate sprinkles, good Whitney Houston music and things with minimal green vegetables.

The fascination started with that dip. It led me to create an apple/white cheddar dessert (no, not a pie) for the cookbook and since then, I’ve just wanted to make tons of things with fruit and cheese. I think berries are one of my favorites to use because they just… BURST. They explode in the oven and turn things a pretty color and are just perfect.

I’m so very attracted to them right now.

Might have made a pizza with them. Maybe. I’m actually so annoyed with myself that I only make tacos and pizza. Like why can’t I think of anything else? Because I’m selfish and only want to eats things stuffed inside a tortilla or piled on top of a garlic crust.

Life is so hard.

Two summers ago I threw strawberries in a skillet and made a cobbler – and I don’t know what it is but things are better in a skillet than a dish. They are different.

Oh. Also, I completely justify my dislike of vegetables with my obsession with fruit. I mean, THAT is balance. Do you even know how many antioxidants I consume? Yeah. And that doesn’t even count the chocolate and wine.

I also have a fascination with putting things on plates that are too small. How many of you are going crazy at that mess?
