Just Peachy!

Tonight I cooked dinner for my little family, and let's just say, it was DISASTROUS! Perhaps this confession is something I should keep to myself so I don't loose any credibility here, or perhaps it will help you see that I am very "human" so if I can cook these recipes, anybody can. I have never claimed to be any kind of culinary expert, I just don't want to waste money so I am trying to make my food storage useful.

Now to the point, I felt so bad for making my family suffer through something I could barely choke down myself, so I made dessert to attempt to make up for it. I then decided that the dessert making would be a great opportunity to use some of my food storage items. The dessert I made is something of a Peach Crisp. I used fresh peaches because they happen to be in season, but canned peaches would work great as well. I also got a great suggestion from a fellow blogger named Alex (check him out at to use more pictures. I did take some pictures of this fine peach crisp, but being the inexperienced photographer that I am, the pictures simply do not do it justice, you will just have to try it out for yourself!

Peach Crisp

1 1/2 C. Sugar

1 1/2 C. Flour

3 Tbs. baking powder

3/4 C. melted margarine

4 peaches, or about 2 Cups diced peaches


Combine all ingredients except peaches. Press half of the mixture into the bottom of an 8X8 pan. Place peaches on top of that and sprinkle them with cinnamon. Sprinkle the rest of the mixture on top of the peaches. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.

I put whipped cream on top, but it is also great with ice cream. How easy is that! It is mighty tasty too.

Yummy! What a great recipe. Why didn't I know this blog was here sooner? It is such a good idea to work on food storage recipes. I'm always telling myself I should, yet I don't. :) I'll email you the recipes for jam and corn. Not difficult by any means. If they were, I wouldn't be doing them. :)
