This winter has been BRUTAL here in the Midwest.  And yes, I know come July I'll be complaining that it is too hot, but right now in this moment...I'm over winter.

Just an hour ago we received the dreaded phone call {for parents} that school is once again canceled tomorrow {kids are rejoicing}.  Just another winter storm hovering over us laughing it's head off.  We've had 8 snow days I believe {whose counting?} and the kids are officially finishing school well into the first week of June.

The only thing that brought light to this dreary day was this cobbler.

Actually, it's brightened my week!

If you remember back in December, Wayfair partnered on the last day my 12 Days of Holiday Giveaways and gave away one of many gift cards to a lucky reader.

Well......they're back!

Wayfair is top notch and not only do they want to make some lucky reader very happy again, but they also allowed me to showcase a stellar product from their website to feature in this recipe.  Behold, the Le Creuset 3.75 qt braiser.

In a beautiful orange color to boot.

But let's get back to this cobbler.

Everything about this dish screams warm and comforting.  I mean, I barely gave it time to cool before I was scooping vanilla ice cream, dishing out a generous scoop and crawling under my blanket to catch up on an episode of Good Girls on Netflix.

It is the perfect hearty dessert for these cold winter months.

Oh, and wait...there is a VERY romantic holiday coming up in two days.  And because I'm never one to exaggarate {please}, nor am never one to overindulge {double please} I created this dessert for lovebirds in mind.

The perfect dish for two!

Small enough you're not sneaking bites all week as you pass through the kitchen, yet big enough to feed a small group or the two spoons digging in on Valentine's Day night at home while watching a movie.

The perfect size.

Any cast iron skillet will work in this recipe, even a glass 8x8 baking dish or better yet a pie plate.  They all work the same.  But, I will say the beauty of this Le Creuset braiser on my kitchen countertop is any cooks dream.

The craftsmanship and quality are #1 and you'll soon find yourself dreaming up all kinds of recipes to make in it.  Next on my list: chicken pot pie, apple crisp and homemade biscuits.

I used frozen organic blueberries in this cobbler {we buy bagfuls at each grocery trip}, but fresh work just fine too.  The tartness of the berries fades away after you mix it with a bit of flour, sugar and cornstarch for thickening.

Oh boy, and then the cobbler topping.  It's my favorite part.  Hands down.  Oats, cinnamon, flour, butter, what is wrong with that?

Nothing.  Nothing is wrong with that.

When baked together they become one and it gets all bubby and soft and well, incredible. I'll admit I've always been a bit hesitant to order a slice of any kind of blueberry dessert at a restaurant.  You just never know if it will be too runny or too tart or too whatever.

You will never have to worry about those questions with this one.  It's perfect!

And here's the good news.  The great news!  Wayfair wants to give one lucky reader a $50 gift card to buy anything they want from Wayfair!

Perhaps money towards a Le Creuset 3.75 Qt Braiser?

Or maybe a new set of bed sheets, or a new fixtures for your bathroom or even a dog bed for your furry friend.  There is literally EVERYTHING to choose from and trust me when I say you'll find yourself down a long rabbit trail when browsing.

Prepare for a few hours.

So here are the details. 1) Make my Skillet Blueberry Cobbler for Two and then 2) Enter this giveaway.  One random winner will be chosen on Friday, February 15.  Enter via the Rafflecopter Giveaway icon below.  Good luck!
