Posts Tagged ‘Peach pound cake’

Tis the season for succulent peaches and since we just came back with a few bushels, I’ve been cookin’ in my country kitchen.  There are two absolute favorite recipes for peach concoctions that make me a heroine in the family.  They are easy, and produce proud results.  We had some peach pound cake for dessert this evening and Bill actually said, “You’re a good cook!”  First time he ever said THAT!  It’s all in the recipes of course and my grim concentration and determination.
