Peach Cobbler and The Lady and Son's

The Lady and Son's...the experience of a lifetime. Okay, maybe not for everybody, but for the Paula fan it is! I absolutely love Paula and she has inspired much of my love of cooking. I love how Paula makes awesome food, and shows good food can just be normal, everyday food. I just can't get into all of the crazy fancy stuff.

This was my second time visiting her restaurant. We arrived around 8:30 am and waited in line for about an hour. Everyone lines up before they begin taking reservations...if you don't you probably won't get in. So, you wait in line, and get a reservation and then return later. Kind of a pain, but it is worth it!

We finally got seated and I ordered up an iced tea with lemon...and a cute sprig of mint (I love that touch)! Of course everyone seems to get sweet tea, but I can't handle sweet tea...yuck!

Oh yeah! Time to hit up the buffet!!! I was in my glory!!!! I LOVE PAULA!!!!!!!!!! The buffet is awesome, everything was just delicious!

This is my mom and I posing under the sign. We had to make it quick. We all rolled out of there we ate so much and it seriously was unbearably hot.
Full of food + Burning hot = BAD combination!!

What better to end this post with than Paula's wonderful Peach Cobbler! It is so good! Take advantage of those peaches that are in season and make this!

8 tablespoons butter (1 stick)
2 cups sugar, divided
3/4 cup self-rising flour
3/4 cup milk
2 cups peeled, chopped peaches
1 cup water

In a saucepan, bring mixture of peaches, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup water to a boil and then simmer for about 10 minutes. Stir often, making sure sugar is completely dissolved.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Put butter in deep baking dish and place in over to melt. Mix 1 cup of sugar and flour; add milk slowly to prevent lumping. Pour over melted butter. Do not stir. Spoon fruit on top, gently pouring in syrup. Still do not stir; batter will rise to top during baking. Bake for 30-45 minutes. Good with fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.

*28 ounce can sliced peaches in syrup, undrained can be substituted for fresh peaches. If using canned you would leave out 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup water.
