Experiment Day

Today was experiment day at our house.  We were on a cruise in June and had a delicious Cream of Broccoli Soup with  Bleu Cheese.   About two months later, I found some time to experiment and try to  duplicate this wonderful soup.  I am almost there but not quit according to my taste testers.

I hope to have a recipe to post soon.

Peach Pops

I love peaches.  I remember as a little girl helping my parents pick peaches from our peach trees.  My mother would make delicious pies, jams, and cobblers using fresh peaches.  Of  course, we would also eat lots of fresh peaches.

Today, my kids love peaches as much as I did.  I make the traditional peach dishes for my family and experiment with new ideas.  One of my better experiments is Peach Pops.  They are truly a cool and refreshing treat for a summer day.
