Something sweet for Farmer Bob: Peach and Blackberry Crisp

With Farmer Bob on a backpacking trip in Olympic National Park's High Divide Loop (7 Lakes Basin) with our son Max and friends, the kitchen is all mine. And knowing the quartet of hikers will be dining on freeze-dried packable foods for three days, I thought it would be sweet to have a fresh dessert awaiting my hubby when he returns home Monday night.
I usually head straight to my food stained edition of The Fannie Farmer Cookbook for fruit cobblers, crisps and crumbles. But this time Google got the nod, and there was no shortage of recipes for what I wanted to create using our fresh peaches and blackberries.
What I wasn't prepared for were all the bad photos included with the online recipes. This Blackberry Peach Cobbler from the P. Allen Smith Garden Home website was so unappealing that I didn't even bother reading the recipe. Really, it's not all that difficult taking a decent photo, just get in there and shoot! The recipe that I selected below came sans photograph -- a much better invitation than scaring people away.
