Apple Buttermilk Skillet Cobbler.

After the best apple picking trip in the North Georgia mountains with my big guy Wyatt, we wanted to bring back our peck of apples and make something yummy for the family.

This recipe is one that we love from a cookbook that we're so into. The author, Brooke Bell passed the book, Cast Iron Baking along to me and I fell in love with this recipe. You know any book where I can cook with my cast iron skillet for each recipe is a win / win.

For as simple as this recipe is it's absolutely delicious and beautiful too. And trust me, it may seem like a lot of butter when you pour the batter in, but it all works out in the end. How's that for Southern cooking?

Fall Apple Picking.

It’s the time of year when our air gets crisp and the leaves start to turn. Growing up in Tallahassee we didn’t really have much in the way of a change of season so I really do appreciate the fall, even if it means colder weather is coming. I like to take this time to enjoy the weather outside and luckily living in south offers so many fun things to do.

I decided to make a special trip with my oldest son, just the two of us. We drove up to BJ Reece Apple Orchard, and boy did we have a great time. Apple picking season in Georgia starts the last week in August and lasts until the end of October so make sure to plan your trip during this time.

 After we finished our apple picking we headed to the main building to find some more goodies. They have so many varieties of apples, and a full section of fresh seasonal produce. But the best part is ALL the apple goods you can buy. They had everything from fresh apple hand-made pies, apple cider, bushels of apples, to apple chips, you name it - they’ve got it. My favorite treat ended up being, the apple cider sour cream donuts paired with a little styrofoam cup of hot apple cider. Fall is officially here and I couldn't be happier.

Not only did they have tons of apples to pick but they also have the cutest little petting zoo. We also got a chance to see a ton of fresh pumpkins and even passed a huge field of sunflowers too. We are so lucky to be so close to the North Georgia Mountains, there is so much to do in the great outdoors nearby us. We also visited Burt’s Pumpkin Patch while we were there, another huge farm operation that’s perfect for picking any kind of pumpkin or gourd you can imagine.
