I have been married to a wonderful Christian man since 1976. The Lord has blessed us with two daughters and two sons. I consider each day the Lord gives me on the earth yet another chance to serve Him.

Peach Bread

Yep, it's peach season here in Michigan.   That means Peach Pies, Peach Cobbler, Peach Ice Cream & Peach Bread.   This bread is so good and so versatile.  I sometimes add blueberries to it.   Sometimes I add chocolate chips.  Sometimes I add nuts and sometimes I add all them.
