I love to cook and bake but I really hate to clean up.  I don’t have a dishwasher (unless you count me) and when I go on a cooking/baking frenzy I can’t stand the dirty dishes so I find myself washing and drying while I’m cooking and baking and then I get totally overwhelmed and crabby….well, you get the picture….so, if I make something all in one pot/pan I am a very happy camper.

Skillet Peach Cobbler is a sweet treat

Cast Iron Skillet Peach Cobbler at Cupcakes and Crinoline

I use my cast iron skillet a lot.  Something about it makes me feel all pioneer-y.  Like I should have an open fire out back and a horse tied to my tree…but I’m not real crazy about bugs so I’ll just stay inside and use the stove.  Right now you can find fresh peaches around here at great prices so I stocked up and made some Fresh Peach Cobbler in my trusty Cast Iron Skillet.  It was so easy, took no time at all and was super tasty.

This would be a great dessert, but while my father-in-law was visiting I served it for breakfast…yes, I did….he loves sweets so I threw caution to the wind and made this.  {I also made my Cinnamon Roll French Toast Casserole for Dinner while he was here….I was really walking on the wild side}.
