I love twitter for so many reasons. To start, I have made so many fabulous friends. I truly make new friends daily, but I always come across the latest and great information on news, health, fitness, recipes, social media and more. I was so excited when Regan Jones from The Professional Palate posted a recipe for Blueberry Cobbler Bars inspired by her grandfather. I know Regan from her days at Cooking Light and Weight Watchers magazines when I was working at Southern Living. When I saw her tweet about her recipe, I told her I must try it with peaches. Well, it worked beautifully. These Peach Cobbler Bars are not only so easy, but out of this world.
Living in Alabama does have its perks, especially living near easy access to fresh Chilton County Peaches. I have been visiting Durbin Farms since I was a child, and they still have the most unbelievable peaches. These peaches (below) were bigger than a softball, sweet, juicy and bursting with fresh peach flavor. A friend of mine passed me this recipe for Simple Peach Pie, and it really can’t get much easier than this. It’s fast with very few ingredients, and it was gone before I could turn around. When you have peaches this sweet, you don’t even need vanilla ice cream on the side, but it is a good addition :).
My kids are infatuated with sorbet and ice cream, especially in the summertime. Since we had some awesome Chilton County peaches from Durbin Farms, I put them to great use in this 3 ingredient recipe for Simple Peach Sorbet from the Southern Living Classic Dessert Cookbook. It’s too easy and tastes fabulous. You can even make this year round using 1 (16-ounce) package of frozen sliced peaches.
