Apple Cider Ice Cream

Nothing sweeter than tasting an apple in season.   My husband and I were amazed when we tasted a apple I had just bought from the grocery store.  The sugar in the apple made our mouths water and my husband truthfully said, "this is how a apple should taste".

Mama's Cinnamon Zucchini Bread

The scent of warm zucchini bread means one thing... Welcome FALL.      I wish I could bottle the smell in our house while this bread is cooking. The smell of cinnamon and sweet brown sugar makes me want to wrap myself in a blanket and forget about my responsibilities.

Peaches Peaches Peaches

I come from a long line of "canners".   My mom and grandma and great grandma and so on until who knows when have all been amazing food preservers.   I have seen pictures of my grandmother's cold cellar with shelves full of bottled food that grew in their own gardens.   I can't even imagine the amount of work and time it took for them to grow a successful garden, pick and bottle the food, and yet still take care of a family and a house.  This makes me feel so lazy.

Peach Cobbler Muffins

Peaches are in the top five for my favorite fruits.   There is nothing more delicious than eating a freshly picked peach with its juice running down your chin.   We live close to a city known for growing peaches the size of grapefruits that are always sweet and ready to be eaten.  If fact they even have a weekend festival called Peach Days just to celebrate there bountiful crop.  We go every year just to buy homemade peach cobbler.
