Today’s Special: Father’s Day Cobbler

I was so excited for this year’s father’s day.  I knew from the start that I wanted to bake something for him.  Now that I knew I was going to bake, I just needed to figure out what exactly I was planning on baking. I knew my dad loved strawberry rhubarb pie.  I thought that this would be the logical choice.  But, then I heard that my aunt had this wonderful recipe for strawberry rhubarb cobbler.  I was so excited that I decided to share the recipe and how it turned out.  Hope everyone is having a great Father’s Day!
