Who doesn’t love Say Anything?
If you don’t, you might want to leave now.
I am a die hard John Cusack fan. I love every movie that he has acted in. Sixteen Candles. OH YEAH. Better Off Dead. One Crazy Summer. The Grifters. Serendipity. Being John Malkovich. YES!!! The Sure Thing. A little okay. High Fidelity???? You know that is a post all of its own. LOVE!!! (Nick Hornby deserves separate love, too.)
Then there is Say Anything.
I fell in love with Lloyd within 2 seconds of watching this movie. “I want to get hurt”. This indie girl wants that Clash T-Shirt wearing boy very badly.
Honestly. Lloyd Dobler.
He points out the broken glass. He’s Keymaster. He teaches driving a stick. He shows us love and pain. He holds up that Boom Box.
Are there any gals out there that wish a guy had held up a boom box under her bedroom window? [[[[[[MEEEEE]]]]]]
Lloyd gets a pen.
He gets my heart. Diane’s, too, of course.
2 Tbs butter
4 pints strawberries
1 Tbs white sugar
2 cups flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbs brown sugar
2 oz butter, softened and cut into cubes
1 cup buttermilk
1 Tbs vanilla extract
2 Tbs brown sugar
2 Tbs butter, melted
Vanilla ice cream for serving
1. Preheat oven to 425℉. Slice strawberries and toss with 1 tablespoon white sugar.
2. Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium heat. Wait for 5 minutes until the entire skillet is hot, then add 2 tablespoons butter. Add strawberries and cook for 5-6 minutes to soften.
3. While strawberries are cooking, combine flour, baking soda and powder, salt and 1 tablespoon brown sugar in a bowl and mix. Add in cubed butter and mix with a fork or your fingers until the butter is in smaller crumbles and strewn throughout the mix. Make a well in the center and pour in buttermilk. Add vanilla extract and stir until mixture comes together.
4. Turn off heat under strawberries. Spoon globs of dough on top of the strawberries, scattering them all around.
5. Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter and drizzle over top of dough. Sprinkle remaining brown sugar on top.
6. Bake for 20 minutes, then turn down heat to 375℉ and bake for 10-15 minutes more. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Taste The Pain totally rocks.
“Goodbye My Love”.
When you hear this song as the movie starts you know you’re in for something good.
At the other musical extreme is this sweet song. A reminder of what it feels like to stay up all night and be falling in love.
Nancy Wilson-All For Love
Lloyd: Joe. Joe. She’s written 65 songs… 65. They’re all about you. They’re all about pain.
Joe: So what’s up?
You Must Chill!
There. Want to say anything?
Iheart this post.
I heart Lloyd.
Can you picture it now? He’d be holding up an iPod.
That’s funny. Or his iPhone. But then there wouldn’t be that great scene in the phone booth when he calls his sister after the break-up.
Fellow Dobler and Hornby fan here. Enough that I wrote a novel out this year about a college freshman whose understanding of love has been shaped by late eighties romantic comedies. Protagonists heroes are Farmer Ted and Dobler…aka The Keymaster. And the cobbler looks good!
Love having a Dobler/Hornby fan stop by my kitchen!! I am so excited about your novel. I’m definitely going to put it on my summer reading list. Farmer Ted….Ha!!
