Nectarine Blueberry Buttermilk Cobbler

 

I was trolling through my old pictures and found some of the very first shots I took with my DSLR. I was so excited when I bought this camera. Even though I barely knew how to turn it on, I thought it would magically transform my shots into works of art.  Talk about delusional. This is one of the first recipes I photographed with my Canon XSi. Lighting issues aside, there were a few shots that were actually usable (the ones in this post) but the majority of them were awful. Really really bad. I had no idea that good photography was much more than just snapping a picture. It’s truly an art form that requires study and lots and lots of practice. While I’m far from being a great photographer, learning the basics of lighting, exposure, and color balance  has helped my photography immensely – no more orangey yellow hash browns or green-blue chicken. What a difference a year makes.

 

I’m not sure why I never posted this recipe because it was delicious. This recipe is adapted from a Whole Foods recipe and it’s what my mom would have called a rising crust cobbler. It’s a quick easy way to satisfy your cobbler craving. Taste your nectarines (or peaches if you like) to see if they’re sweet. If not, add a 1/4 cup sugar to the syrup- cornstarch mixture. I didn’t peel the nectarines but if using peaches you probably should.
