September wouldn't be farmers' market month on the blog without, well, a trip to the farmers market, right? 

Baking Challenge: Peach Cobbler

This recipe challenge was bound to be kind of a tough one because it marked my big return to traditional baking. When I saw that it was Peach Cobbler, I felt a little encouraged. Cobblers are supposed to look a little messy, right?

Why not bake something on your day off? :)
