Peachy Summer

Summer is here and the kids are out of school.  Life doesn’t generally change tremendously for most people at this time of year but for many moms, summer is either a season to be savored or a season to be endured.  I am finally learning to enjoy the lazy days of summer but, to be honest, I sometimes long for the routine of the school year and the routine of my job.  I tend to do best with structure–in fact, I really have trouble getting things done at all without some structure.  One thing I can ALWAYS do without difficulty is cook because it really keeps me focused.  Whenever I cook, I always have my iPad on the kitchen counter watching something on Netflix or checking a recipe online.  How did we ever live without our devices? Well, I’m not sure how we lived without Netflix but concerning cooking,  we simply used those “tried and true recipes” often from our moms, grandmas, friends, etc.  I thought I would share one called Easy Peach Cobbler but you could substitute other types of fruit.  This is SO easy and SO good with vanilla ice cream!  You will be a culinary star whenever you serve this yet it’s crazy easy.  It’s great reheated too.   Enjoy!

Easy Peach Cobbler  (from my mom:)

1 stick butter

1 cup self-rising flour

1 cup sugar

1 cup milk

28 oz can sliced peaches (or use equivalent amount sliced fresh peaches)

Melt butter in a deep round casserole dish in 350 degree oven.  Mix flour, sugar, and milk and pour over the melted butter.  Do Not Stir!!  Pour peaches on top.  Again, no stirring.  The crust will rise during baking.  Bake in 350 degree over for One Hour or until crust is brown.  Serve warm with Vanilla Ice Cream.

Have a Perfectly Peachy Summer!
