I am not a big dessert eater - I just don't like sweets; plain and simple. Hard to believe, eh? A lot of people can't believe it whenever I pass on dessert, birthday cake, ice cream and the be honest, I would rather have another dollop of mashed potatoes or a second serving of spaghetti then Häagen-Dazs or a Snickers. But from time to time I will "indulge" a little bit and it is usually if and when my Mom makes desserts or if we go to a Polish bakery and get some pastries. 
I'll tell you one thing, my Mom makes a mean apple crumble. 
I love her baking/cooking and she usually made this crumble around Christmas time...where the entire house smelled like cinnamon and baked apples...ahh, it smelled so heavenly during that time! I should get the recipe from her and try it out myself sometime...

The other night I went over to my parent's neighbour's house to drop off some magazines and Tammy {my Mom's friend as well who is such a sweetheart} gave us a couple mags too. 
As I was going through the "Something Extra" magazine I stumbled across a crumble recipe that also has blackberry's in it - I love berries.
I decided to share the recipe with you guys and maybe my Mom will try this one out sometime as well. 
I have only posted a small handful of dessert recipes on this blog so enjoy this one. ;) 

Bon Appetit!
