Georgia Peaches

Georgia Peaches

Some of the early varieties of peaches are already showing up in the local farm stands. My favorite place to go around here is Gregg Farms in Concord, GA. In addition to many varieties of peaches, they sell u-pick blueberries and blackberries.  The best part of the farm is their soft serve peach ice cream.  You […]

Lunchbox Triangles

Lunchbox Triangles

Jula Bars

When a Few Will Do - Peppermint Meltaway Cookies

When a Few Will Do – Peppermint Meltaway Cookies

  I enjoy making cookies but I don’t always want to make 5 dozen at a time.  I’m not a repetitive eater so unless I’m baking for an event, I usually end up throwing away the extras.  This summer we have been trying to experiment with cutting back recipes so there aren’t as many uneaten leftovers.  This […]
