OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA It has been way too long since I sat down at my computer and shared a recipe.  Life sends us many twists and we never saw my Mom being diagnosed with cancer as one of them.  She came to our house for surgery and treatment (she lives in another state) and we have all been adjusting to the things happening around us.  I walked away from the foodie internet world for awhile but not from food itself.   I realized that although there are various ways I can be there for Mom that cooking for her gives me pleasure as well as helps keep her strength up.   I was making a peach cobbler one evening and was thinking how neat it was that I was making this for Mom in the cast iron skillet that had been handed down to me by my grandma…her mother.   My thoughts also went to how I should share this recipe because everyone seems to enjoy it and it’s quick and easy.   I meant to do this several weeks ago and talked to Maureen…the awesome gal over at www.orgasmicchef and she gave me the lift I needed to try and return to the foodie internet world.  Unfortunately Mom ended up in the hospital and my return got postponed.  However, today the sun is shining, she is doing well and I made peach cobbler last night again.  So…what better day than today to share with you this tasty dish.  I hope you enjoy and share with me your thoughts!

  1. I’m so sorry about your mom. Bill’s dad was just diagnosed with cancer…and there’s not much that can be offered. I am glad your mom is able to stay with you while receiving treatment. Prayers that she does well.

    PS…your cobbler looks amazing!

    • Liz, sorry to hear you are dealing with cancer as well. I truly hope things go well and will add you to my prayers. I can’t imagine you needing a cobbler recipe with all the wonderful things you make but I am so honored when you visit my blog!!!

Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
