Can someone please explain to me why it is that I always manage to spill something horrible in my oven a day or two before we’re supposed to have guests over for dinner?
I can totally hear you thinking, “what’s the big deal? You have DAYS to clean it up.”
You guys. Have you met me? My memory is totally shot. I do not remember that there is a mess in my oven until the next time I start preheating it and the oven starts sending out smoke signals. It’s ridiculous. This usually results in a week or so of smoking the entire house out and then finally remembering to run the clean cycle about 10 minutes before I’m ready for bed. Of course, I can’t go to sleep while the oven is on, so I sit. And I wait. And I complain.
I’m a total complainer. That’s another thing you should know about me by now.
You know what though? Even if it does take me a week to remember to run the clean cycle on my oven, you should be proud. I once owned an oven for 10 years that didn’t have the self clean function and do you know how many times I cleaned that oven? That’s right. Zero times. Anyway, this Honey Cinnamon Peach Cobbler is a total favorite of mine. The sweet peaches, the honey, the cinnamon, it just works. Beautifully.
If fresh peaches aren’t available or just aren’t looking super fabulous where you are (they rarely look super fabulous here in Illinois), go ahead and use frozen. Just thaw them for an hour on the counter.
Of course, fruit cobblers like to bubble and what happens when things bubble? They spill right out of the pan and all over the bottom of the oven resulting in smoke signals and late nights.
LG has a new EasyClean oven and, you guys, I just can’t even handle it. A twenty minute clean cycle? Ugh. That’s so exactly what I need. No chemicals either, which makes mama happy. Spray the interior with a bit of water, press the EasyClean button, wait 20 minutes, and then wipe down the icky stuff that came off your oven! Pretty sure there are no excuses for not cleaning your oven if it only takes 20 minutes! (Heavy build-up may require additional manual effort or use of the full self-clean feature).
