TWD- Cherry Rhubarb Cobbler with Mango-Banana Frozen Yogurt

This week's pick was chosen by Amanda of Like Sprinkles on a Cupcake. Check her blog for the recipe. I like rhubarb and have eaten it since I was little, so I had no problem there. Cherries, well I like them too. Cobbler isn't my favorite dessert, but I was willing to give it a try. We have rhubarb growing in the garden and tons of frozen Bing cherries from my grandpas cherry trees, so I was ready to go. Then the oven died. It has been throwing fits alot lately, not wanting to light the pilot light, and usually I can fix it, by timing it just right and lightly a long match, sticking it under the bottom of the oven and somehow lighting it. But, this time, it wouldn't work. I was making cookies at the time, and we had to take the oven apart. To make a long story short, we didn't fix it. I waited until the last minute on this one and then, I happened to open the latest issue of Everyday with Rachel Ray (I knew all those magazine subscriptions would pay off someday) and saw a feature on how to make cobbler on the grill. SO-problem solved. I got out a cast iron skillet, followed the recipe to a tee, and then tried to get the gazillion year old grill hot enough to bake something. I covered that thing with foil and, after 1 1/2 hours, ta-da! It worked! There was a bit of a smoky grill flavor, so I will have to try this again, when the oven is fixed, but at least I know it is possible. I also threw together some great Frozen Yogurt (check it out below). Go check out everyone else's take on this cobbler by checking out the TWD blogroll.

Great idea to do it on the grill. I had planned to do mine in the Dutch Oven, but I didn't even start mine till last night after we came in the door from vacation. I'm definitely making this one again. Yours looks grand!

The yoghurt sounds really tasty and I am so happy you were able to still come out with your cobbler! What an amazing find in the magazine...I always tell my husband when he asks why I need so many magazines, 'you never know, I might need something in there one day' lol...now I have your story as PROOF!

Most would have just not baked it and maybe gave up...like me lol. You hung in there and ended up with a yummy looking cobbler.

I look forward to your post next week and hope the oven gets a clean bill of health too!
