Summer is a time for lots of gatherings with friends and family. I often feel compelled to bring something delicious to the celebration. It is an excuse for me to cook something different and who doesn’t love getting tons of compliments on the dish they prepared. One of my go-to summer desserts is peach cobbler. Peaches are in peak season and this cobbler is so easy to make for 8, 18 or even 28! Serve with a side of vanilla ice cream and you’ll have a dessert everyone is going to remember.
