Peaches and Cream Bread

Georgia-Peach

Hello, Everyone I know it has been a few days since I shared anything. However, I have the most delicious recipe that surely will make up for it. I live in the wonderful state of Georgia. Home of the Bulldogs, Ga. Tech., Atlanta’s fast growing celebs’ city and last but not least “The Peach State”. We have a recipe for peach everything, my favorite is this bread that will as we say in the south “make you wanna slap yo’ mama”. Southerners believe in honor your mother and father, so if we say THAT! It means it’s definitely something you want to try. ENJOY FRIENDS!
