Happiness is when you get a case of Lane's peaches from a friend. What a friend! I'm grinning from ear to ear looking at the half-bushel box on the dining table. As the ripening peach scent wafting in my kitchen, and with kinda stupid-happy grin on my face, you'd think my husband has given me another engagement ring. Food is my love language. I left the box as the centerpiece for the table for four days, I think.
Another happiness? Choosing what to do with these glorious Georgia peaches! Miss Sophie and I had crazy wonderful time deciding on which recipe to write and photograph.....yes, we are complete food nerds to the core. Digging through her recipe boxes, she chose this recipe, along with a few others for her Wednesday food column with Savannah Morning News. Click here to read.
