Southern New Mexico is a pretty familiar place for me. My parents both grew up here. Both sets of grandparents still live here. Numerous aunts and uncles live nearby. I’ve spent a lot of time here. No amount of familiarity could ever make this view any less breathtaking.
White Sands National Monument is a supremely under-appreciated experience. There are views of the mountains surrounding you, and the white sand seems to go on forever. The dunes are giant and absolutely amazing to sled down.
I just love feeling the cool evening breeze. And coming home to eat this peach cobbler afterwards? It’s just too much!
I cannot tell a lie. I based this almost entirely off of Smitten Kitchen’s recipe. I gluten-freed it with Cup-4-Cup. I may have used more pecans than it called for.
This recipe was stolen from Smitten Kitchen, but inspired by 2-lbs-for-a-dollar peaches and the pecan tree in my grandmother’s back yard. Please make it. It’ll make you happy. Promise.
