It's Peach Week!

Peaches are in season here in Upstate New York (yep, peaches grow up here!) and so I thought I'd dedicate a whole week to the lovely fruit. I recently picked two bushels (about 65 pounds) of peaches with some friends with From Scratch Club. Since then, it's been peach-mania here on the farm. From jams to pies to cocktails, the peach has been the shining star of the kitchen. I'll be sharing some recipes and tips with you here this week, and I hope you'll enjoy some of them and report back on what you think! Are you a peach fan? Do they grow where you live? PS - Peaches kind of have a nostaglic touch for me. The restaurant/cafe I worked at in college was called Peaches, and it's where I met Dave (he was a patron and I was his waitress :-).

I absolutely LOVE peaches! But of course I have been called a 'Georgia Peach' by my hubby. :-) Can you guess where I'm originally from?! Ha! Ha! I love peach...everything! Cobblers, pies, wine, milkshakes, etc... As a matter of fact, I looked at The Pioneer Woman's blog today and she has a recipe posted for peaches and whiskey chicken!! I can't wait to try that too! :-]
