Peach Mango Frozen Greek Yogurt

Sweet fresh peaches, honey and Cabot Greek Yogurt combine to make this amazing Peach Mango Frozen Greek Yogurt.  I opted to make this in the freezer.  As much as I like an ice cream machine...I cannot make a great ice cream, or frozen delight, with any consistency.  There have been a few....Cheesecake Ice Cream, Vanilla Ice Cream are two that I can think of.  Anywho,  I went back to my old ways.  Isn't that the way it goes?  Mixing the ingredients and letting the freezer work for me.  I made this in the morning and by afternoon I had a healthy frozen treat for my boys.

Ginger Snap Peachy Pan Cakes

Something a little different for us and oh so, yummy.  The taste is that of a flat peach cobbler with a hint of ginger snaps. 

My Boys like to fold fresh peaches up in them and eat while holding in their hands.  That's more or less the way we like it.  Simple yet delicious!  Another simple way is whipped topping, simple syrup and fresh peach slices.  Nothing fancy about us but they did taste the part. 

Ginger Snap Peachy Pan Cakes


1/4 cup (4-6) ground Ginger Snap Cookies, We used 4 and there was just a hint of ginger  snaps 
2 cups plain flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1  1/2 cups pureed fresh peaches
1 1/2 cups fresh peaches, diced
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup oil
1 egg
1/4 cup milk

Mix dry ingredients together.  Add milk, egg, pureed peaches and oil.  Mix well.  Add diced peaches.

Spray skillet with oil.  Cook over medium low heat.  It is ready to flip when holes appear in the top.  Cook another 2-3 minutes, until brown and done throughout. 

Peach Topping

1/3 cup water
2/3 cup sugar
Peaches, sliced

Bring water to boil.  Add sugar and stir until dissolved.  Add peaches and toss.  Let set for a few minutes.    Top Gingers Snap Peachy Pan Cakes with a whipped cream and drizzle on top.  Add peaches.  YUM!

 Serve with fresh peaches and whipped cream, hot maple syrup or vanilla bean ice cream.  Frozen peaches are also good with them.  My Boys like to fold them over and stuff with peaches, eating them with their hands.  We hope you like them!  

Okay...here is the gussied up picture.  YUM~!

My Boys love to top theirs and others too!  <3

Sunday Brown Sugar Ham and Peaches..Memory of Sunday Lunch

Sunday's remind me of lunch as a kid.  Having a huge spread of just about everything on the table after church.  My parents...yes, Daddy helped too when Mama was busy, would get the side dishes ready in the morning.  The main part of the meal would be put in the oven to cook while we went to church..  My sister or I would set the table before we left.  The only thing to do would be to put ice in the glasses for the Drink of Choice of the South...Sweet Tea, so sweet a spoon could stand up in it,  and pop the bread in the oven. 

When you opened the door after coming home from a wonderful morning of worship, the house was filled with the most delicious smells.  More intense than if you were home cooking the same meal.  Your stomach would begin to growl and you didn't know if you just wanted to kick off your shoes or change out of your church clothes first before you began eating.  The fastest way to get to table, was the way I chose.

After filling up with lunch, Daddy would lean back and have to unbutton to top of his pants because he was so full.  A sure sign that Daddy loved his meal.  Often times he wouldn't have room for the luscious dessert Mama had made.

We would go our separate ways after a great time shared as a family on a Beautiful Sunday Morning.  I would go to the pool in the backyard or movies with friends.  Daddy would sit in front of the tv, Mama would talk to friends and family, and my sister would go her way with friends.  Sometimes we would all go for a ride to nowhere and stop and get an ice cream on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Today I am cooking a Brown Sugar Ham and Peaches.  Yes, I am in a Peaches mode it seems.  ~smiles~   My husband bought some really huge, sweet peaches the other day and I need to use them up.  ~grins even bigger~   

Sunday Brown Sugar Ham and Peaches

1 Smoked Ham
1 cup of Brown Sugar
1 can or jar of canned, Peaches,  I used a pint of home canned
3-4 Fresh Peaches

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Trim excess fat from ham and save for seasoning. Pour the juice from peaches over ham, putting peaches in the pan.
Peel, and cut peaches into quarters, halves if on the smaller size.
Put brown sugar over ham and peaches.
Tent with foil.

Cook for 2 to 2 1/2 hours depending on size of ham.  You want to heat it completely through.
Take peaches out of juice as soon as you take it out of the oven.  Let ham rest for 15 minutes or more minutes.
Enjoy!

Getting ready for oven.

Really Huge peaches my husband bought! 


Mini Egg Custard Pies With Peaches

This is a recipe I got from our dear friend Shirley for the boys.  She lived up the road from us for a very long time.  At least until a few years ago when she and her husband, Buddy,  moved back to their home town.  I really miss our dear friends and seeing them daily....sharing everything by just going a short walk to their house.   I miss eating together and just enjoying each others company.  Thankfully, through facebook and emails we get to catch up with each others lives and chat.  It just isn't the same as sharing Sweet Tea and looking into your friends face.  Love and Miss you both Shirley and Buddy!  ~hugs~

I made Mini Egg Custard Pies with Peaches, this recipe made 18.  Below is Shirley's recipe for her Egg Custard Pie.  

Egg Custard Pie(s)

4 Eggs
1 can Evaporated Milk 
1 can of Water using evaporated milk can to measure
1 tsp Vanilla
3/4 Cups of Sugar
2 Tbs of Flour (any kind will do)
Sprinkling of Nutmeg
2 premade pie crust
fresh peaches diced very small, optional
3 1/2" cutter,  I used the rim of a glass

Heat oven to 350 degrees


Lightly grease muffin tins.

Mix first 6 ingridents.
Cut pie crust with your cutter.  Put into muffin tins.
Fill each with custard mixture and a few pieces of peaches. 
Top with a pinch of nutmeg.
Bake 15 minutes and check to see if it is set.  Firm to the touch.  I ended up cooking mine 25 mintues.
(I always start checking too early.  But I would rather do that than over cook.  :D)
Let sit until cool.
You can also cook in pie crusts,  put on cookie sheets,  for 45 minutes checking after 30 minutes.
Enjoy!

The boys had to nibble on the mini pies.  :D

This is similar to my Bacon Jam.  Although mine is not very ... jammy, it has a delicious taste and sits nicely on a toasted biscuit, english muffin, toast or even a hamburger if you so desire.  :D

1 lb of Smoked Sausage, I used Kielbasa because that is what I had
1 medium to large Sweet Onion
1 1/2 cups Peaches, diced
1 cup of Coca Cola*
1  cup of Water*
1/2 cup of sugar*
2 teaspoons of Minced Garlic, I used the jarred minced garlic in olive oil
1 teaspoon Kosher Salt
1/2 teaspoon Freshly Ground Pepper
1/4 - 1/2 teaspoon Tabasco Sauce

Cut sausage into thin quatered pieces. Cook to render fat.  Pour off fat and wipe fat out of skillet with a paper towel.  Blot sausage.
Dice onion into small pieces and add to skillet.  Cook until carmelized.
Add garlic, salt, pepper, tabasco sauce and coca cola. 
Cook until most of the coca cola has reduced. 
Boil water and remove from heat.  Add sugar and stir to dissolve.  Add to skillet along with peaches. 
Cook until most of the liquid has reduced. 
Enjoy!
*note.. you can substitue a large can of peaches for the water, sugar and peaches*

Frozen Creamy Peaches And A Sweet Summer Memory

My Boys and I have been making frozen fruit desserts since it is so hot out.  Today I was thinking about my Grandma, Papa and summer time.  Our family would load up in the old Chevrolet Station Wagon and go to Georgia to visit during the summer.  What a Blessing it was to see my Grandparents whom I only saw once, maybe twice a year.  We would spend a week in the hot summer.  The only air conditioner was in a window in the living room.  Door and windows open with curtains flowing once in awhile in the sparse winds of summers.  Fans were placed in just the right places at the perfect angles to help ease the scorching, breathless air of Georgia in July. 

Grandma and Papa would be up before the break of dawn.  Papa would be in the garden gathering whatever needed to be put up that particular day.  Grandma would be where she always was...In her kitchen.  We would wake up to the smell of bacon with thick rind and sausages that they had cured in the smoke house.  Big fat cat head biscuits, with a slap on bacon grease on them before heading in the oven.  Grits popping and boiling all over the back eye with a long handled spoon stuck inside the worn pot.  Eggs were fried to order and for me pancakes,  you know bacon grease got in batter also.  Butter was on a saucer and was big as a brick it seemed.  Syrup was Blackburn syrup...my favorite back then and probably would be now if I could find it.

After breakfast, Grandma would have Papa put the big ole washtubs in the sunniest part of the yard and fill them with water.  As the day and cousins got hotter playing, so did the water. 

After lunch would mean a dip, or sit rather,  in the washtubs of water.  Sometimes the water would be too hot and you would have to get the garden hose out to cool it off.  They were only big enough for one of us at the time.  If there were more kids than washtubs you had to wish you were the first one in or your water may be mighty shallow.  ~giggles~

Once we were dried off and sitting 'round the kitchen table, Grandma would bring out the best dessert ever to be had on a hot, mid summer Georgia day.  Frozen Peaches!  She would get the little white, square freezer containers out with a bunch of spoons.  If we were lucky, we would get one of our own.  But it was just as good to share...given your peach scraping cousin, or one of my sisters, wasn't hungrier than your stomach was for those icy, sweet peaches.  We scrapped and dug holding onto the frozen containers until we couldn't hold any longer.  This memory brings with it sighs and smiles as the bittersweet memories flood through my mind like the little creek after a hard rain.  I Love And Miss My Grandma and Papa So Very Much!  Until that Beautiful Day when we meet again.........


Today I wanted frozen peaches and only had canned.  Here is my very simple, yet delicious way to fix them.

Frozen Creamy Peaches

1 large can of peaches in heavy syrup

That's it.  One ingredient to get the best of the best in frozen desserts.  Puree the canned peaches and put into a rectangular container. 
Place in freezer.  Check back in 45 minutes or so.  Stir.  Check again in another 30-45 minutes stirring again. 
One or two more rests in the freezer, stirring as you go, should bring you to the most delicious sweet and creamy frozen peaches. 

If you happen to have any left over, which I doubt, just let it sit out for a few minutes before serving to get that great yumminess once again. 

I hope you enjoy this as much as My Boys and I did.  Fixing the frozen peaches and eating them 'round the table while I share Sweet Memories about their Great Grandma and Great Papa.  <3 

Getting ready for the freezer.

Can't wait to get into this but one of the little ones got to it first!  ~giggles~ 
Scoops up just like soft serve after 3 hours in the freezer.
I made this with fresh peaches and it works well...puree and sweeten to your taste.  Not as creamy but delicious and is scoopable!  Your children will love eating frozen fruit!
