Eric’s Favorite Dessert: Peach Cobbler with Ice Cream!

Want to know Eric’s favorite dessert? I know you’re dying to find out!

It’s peach cobbler!!

So, when Eric’s family visited a couple of weekends ago, his sister and I decided to make his fave! Now, let’s just say this one turned out better than my previous attempt at peach cobbler (thanks to Jillian’s baking skills!).

When Eric and I started dating, he had mentioned that he loved peach cobbler. SO, naturally I made it for him one evening. It wasn’t exactly pretty…or really edible. He was so sweet and ate it, and “loved it”. Later on in our relationship we laughed at how gross it was. It’s the thought that counts, right?!
