I love food. All kinds of food. One of my favorite kinds of food, is down home, southern cooking. Right now, right this very minute, I am sitting on a screened in porch over looking a beautiful lake in Southern VA. And I just saw a hummingbird flit by. It is the perfect way to wind down after my day of water sports and soothe my new sore muscle spots. Don’t you just feel sorry for me? No? Me neither. In fact, I am feeling downright happy, all the way down to my toes. The toes that got squished into ski boots to glide over perfect water. The toes that got sat on so I could get up on a kneeboard for the first time in 25 years. It’s a good life.
So I think it is the right time to eat some down home, southern comfort food. I want some good food that doesn’t require much effort. Two, Two Easy Peach Cobbler is just what I need. Because food that is easy and fabulous makes me happy too. And I am on vacation, and happy down to your toes is what it is all about in our family this week. Even though this recipe calls for canned peaches, which I can have any time of year, the fact that it is peach cobbler makes me feel like it is a summer food. Peaches are in season right now, and I am getting ready to make a batch of our favorite homemade ice cream to go with our peach cobbler. Our family fights over the crunchy edges.
You want to come sit on the porch with me and eat cobbler, don’t you? I don’t blame you. But it is not going to happen. I will do you a favor though. I will share this recipe. My hubby raved about this recipe after a friend made it for us. She lives on a farm near us in VA, and her down home, southern cooking is to die for. She lets me pick up fresh milk whenever we drive by her place on the way to and from the lake. Obviously she likes to cook with fresh ingredients. But with all she has to do on a farm, she doesn’t have much time and needs to get food on the table fast. This recipe is so easy! Two, two easy because it pretty much takes two of everything to make it. Except for one can of peaches. Maybe that can has about two peaches in it. Anyway, it is easy to make and easy to remember because it takes 1 can of peaches, and two of everything else. Make sure to use a 12 inch cast iron skillet so that the whole cobbler bakes through. I love my skillet and you can get yours HERE.
