Mmm Monday (Peach Crumb Bake)

I love fresh peaches! I live in North Florida, where the vegetable stands have Georgia peaches. I would buy them just for the smell, but the taste is wonderful too. The grocery stores have California peaches that aren’t even close in flavor. I’m sure if you live in California, when you eat California peaches they are quite different than what is shipped to Florida. Vegetables and fruits that are vine-ripened are infinitely better.

Peach cobbler is a southern comfort food, but to me, it’s not worth the calories and fat. I actually like this recipe better than cobbler as it keeps the focus on the peaches rather than the breading. I found this at  Join me at the table by clicking on Mr. Linky below to share a recipe. Please link directly to the post that has the recipe so visitors don’t have to search for it. Enjoy!
