Slow Simmered Peach Cobbler
Peach Cobbler is a favorite dessert of mine, and has been since my childhood. The sticky sauce blended with peaches and cinnamon just makes the house smell scrumptious. Top it off with cobbler dumblings, and you have a wonderful taste delight.
Today, however, I’ve put a different twist on my traditional oven recipe and brought out the crock pot.
I’ve had a craving for Peach Cobbler for a while now, however, the idea of heating the house up in mid-summer with the oven, was not an option.
So, the more my craving grew, the more my creative mind got cooking.
The crock pot, or slow cooker, is such a versatile kitchen appliance. We all should be using them more often. In fact, year round.
Simmers Without The Heat
One clear advantage of using the slow cooker is that it can slow simmer foods for hours without overly affecting the heat levels in your home. When it is 30 degrees Celsius outside, you certainly don’t want your kitchen area approaching 45 Celsius.
One way to help you cook a wide arrangement of meals without heating up the house is to clearly use the crock pot more often.
From breakfast, lunch, dinner, and even desserts, the crock pot can do it all.
When is the last time you used your crock pot?
What Are Your Go To Comfort Foods?
All of us have those foods that we long for during times of stress, celebration, and even relaxation.
What are those comfort foods for you?
Is it something salty? Perhaps you crave the chocolates and sweets instead. And some of you may enjoy a really good home cooked meal of meat, potatoes, and veggies.
But whatever it may be, you can always look for ways to make them year round, as well as economically.
Comment below and let me know what is that recipe that brings back the fondest memories and the greatest feelings of home.
