Mama’s Southern Peach Cobbler and The San Pedro River Valley

Mama’s Southern Peach Cobbler and The San Pedro River Valley

My Mama’s Southern Peach Cobbler is the recipe that, during my lifetime, I’ve eaten more than any other recipe and probably have made it more than any other recipe.  This is a cobbler recipe that has been passed down through the generations in many southern families.  My grandmother passed it down to my mother and then she passed it down to all of her kids.  It’s easy, delicious, and just downright fun to make.  You can use just about any fruit or combination of fruit.  A side of ice cream or whipped cream is a nice finish, and in the case of peach cobbler, ice cream and whiskey sauce is the ultimate Mardi Gras dessert.  I hope you enjoy!

And to all you moms out there – Happy Mother’s Day!!!!!

In addition to peach cobbler, I’m sharing some pictures from the first part of our recent road trip – our time in the San Pedro River Valley.  Click the link to jump to the road trip.
