I wanted to thank you for everything you have done for me.  I can't for the life of me figure out how to navigate here in allrecipes.com, other wise I would have thank you individually. 
MIKE HARVEY:  I did use the LINK you give me for Splenda with my peaches, and OMG I have to fight off the wolfs here.....LOL  Talk about good....WOW....  Mike thanks so much...
My son Kyle has been worrying about all the peaches falling on the ground and smelling.  I laughed at him and said  "do you smell anything or see anything on the ground"  a few he said..  I told him the Deer are having a field day with the peaches on the ground at night. 
REDNECK GRAMMA:  I do understand where your coming from.  Gosh, I just flat out love peaches.
If I could figure out a way of getting some to you, I would...  I would like to be able to navigate through this web site better, but I guess I will in time.  Made my mouth water when you offered moose... I can't say I have ever had Saskatoon berries... This is the first time I ever herd of them.  But, if you know me, I will always try something once.  Always told my 2 kids you can't say you don't like if you don't at least try it.  Again that web site you sent me made my mouth start watering again...LOL  I have to watch my natural sugars like Watermelon, Cantaloupe, Pineapple, etc.  cause they make my blood sugar sky rockets.  I haven't tried Honey yet.  This changing my eating habits is a pain in the rump, but I guess it's for the good.  Thank You redneck gramma
CANDICE:  Ask my family, if it's peaches of anything, I'm in it.  God really did good when he made Peaches.  I haven't tried the peach preserves I made and walnuts on oatmeal yet, but it's on the high priority list.  Thank you so much.

Temp outside today was 108.8 degrees. Shoot, I'll just take my pie crust out to the peach tree and drop them in, there already cooked. LOL

Hehe, too funny Jim. Central Illinois here. Where is Caseyville? Growing up my folks & I always made a trip or two each summer to Centralia or Carbondale to get peaches. Yum! My summer vacations!

Magnolia:: we are right next to St. Louis, MO. On a clear day we can see the Gateway Arch from our home on top the hill. Oh, if you only knew how much I enjoy peaches. I'll eat all fruits, but peaches are without a doubt my favorite.

Thank you Chef Jim, it's always so good to hear how this website helps folks. It took me a long time to learn to navigate around the website, but over time, you'll find more and more what YOU use most. I'm still learning new ways to use the site and I LOVE IT! All hail to the PEACH! (and I'm still eating them in my oatmeal...YUM!!)

Jim, my folks so loved peaches also. Mom would make peach jam and I swear she could use that as a substitute in almost any baked good. Banana oatmeal cookies? Nope, didn't have any bananas-used peach jam instead. Many other instances, it got to be a joke whenever she offered a baked treat. Got peach jam in it? Yep! Don't even get me started on Mom's peach pies, crisps and cobblers.

About Me
I am a easy going guy who is always busy. Yes ladys and gents I don't have time for TV. During the winter months I am either hunting or most likely helping down at the church. During spring I am working on repairs outside and getting my hotbox ready for the garden. Summer and fall I am busy canning and freezing what comes out of my garden. I also cook all the meals for the day or event.
My favorite things to cook
I have to thank my mother for this. She broke her ankle when I was 10 years old, and there is where I learned to cook. I am nothing compared to my mother,(she is a true Chef), can make a delicous dish from scraps in the refigerator. Anyhow, I make a lot of bread type, deserts, nationalities.
My favorite family cooking traditions
You most likely won't like this. As a youngster we used to have family reunions and get togethers all the time. We would all go fishing and have a fish fry, and the ladys would bring side dishes and of corse desserts. That has gone now because America is to busy.
My cooking triumphs
Everything I have ever done has been great. I always end up with a empty dish.
My cooking tragedies
None: My daughter burnt popcorn;;; how do you burn popcorn? She said I did it, thats my girl.
