Here is a good recipe for Peach Bread pudding since peaches are in season right now. This is delicious

Peach Bread with Amaretto Sauce

4 Tbs. unsalted butter, softened, plus 4 Tbs. melted
6 cups 1-inch cubes of day-old bread
2 cups heavy cream
2 cups milk
2 lbs. peaches, peeled and seeded, cut into 1-inch chunks- can use canned peaches that are well drained
1 cup sugar
5 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
For the sauce:
1 stick butter
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup sugar
2 egg yolks
1/3 cup amaretto

For the Bread Pudding: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 10 by 14-inch

baking dish with 1 tablespoon of the softened butter. In a large bowl, combine the bread cubes, heavy cream and milk and let sit for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

While the bread is soaking, heat the remaining 3 Tbs. of softened butter in a large skillet and, when butter begins to bubble, add the peaches and 1/4 cup of the sugar. Cook, stirring occasionally, until peaches are golden brown around the edges and softened, 4 to 6 minutes. Set aside.
In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, the remaining 3/4 cup of sugar, vanilla, and nutmeg and whisk well to combine. Stir the egg mixture into the bread mixture and fold to combine. Add the warm peaches and fold gently but thoroughly to combine. Pour into the prepared dish. Drizzle with the melted butter and bake until golden brown, puffed, and slightly firm when pressed in the center, 45 minutes to 1 hour. Cool on a wire rack until just warm, about 20 minutes.

For the Amaretto Sauce: In a small, heavy enameled or other non-reactive saucepan over medium low heat, add the butter and cook until melted. In a small bowl combine the cream, sugar, and egg yolks and whisk to combine. Add the cream mixture to the melted butter and stir well. Cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens and coats the back of a spoon, about 10 minutes. Remove from the heat immediately and add the amaretto.

Transfer sauce to a small heatproof bowl and serve hot or warm over warm bread pudding.

1 cup golden brown sugar (packed)
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/2 cup whipping cream

This is such a refreshing salad to serve on a summer day, and also makes a delightful dessert as well. I usually always double it when I make it and put in a 9 x 13 inch dish. I prefer to use frozen peaches, thawed and drained.

Creamy Peach Salad

1 (3 oz.) peach flavored Jello
1 cup boiling water
1/3 cup cold water
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1-3/4 cups Cool Whip, thawed
1 can (15 oz.) sliced canned or frozen peaches, thawed & drained
1/3 cup chopped pecans

Cut up peaches. Dissolve Jell-O in boiling water. Add cold water and chill until thickened. Blend yogurt into Cool Whip and then blend into Jell-O. Stir in peaches and nuts and pour into small square dish and chill until firm.

These giant sized cookies are an excellent way to make use of over-ripe bananas. The recipe says it yields 18 cookies, but I
make mine a little smaller and get about twice as many. These are also good using dried cranberries or cherries in place of the
raisins and am sure chocolate chips as a substitute would be a real good variation too.

Banana Frisbee Cookies

3/4 cup shortening
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 cup (3 medium) mashed ripe bananas
2-1/4 cup flour
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. vanilla
1 cup raisins

In large mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugars; beat in eggs. Blend in mashed banana; add dry ingredients and mix in. Add vanilla and raisins and mix. Drop by 1/4 cupfuls and place on greased cookie sheets; spread into circles about 2-1/2 inches in diameter with metal spatula. Bake at 400 for 8 to 10 minutes, or till lightly browned.

Remove from cookie sheets and cool on wire racks.
Makes 18 big cookies.

American Flag Cheesecake Bars

Decorate these easy cheesecake bars as American flags by using blueberries for the star section and piping jelly in thin lines to resemble the strips. It's a great make-ahead dessert for summer entertaining.
Yield: 16 bars (serving size: 1 bar)


1/2 cup whole almonds
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted

3 8-oz. packages cream cheese, at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3 large eggs, at room temperature
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
80 fresh ripe blueberries (about 1 cup)
1 cup seedless raspberry jelly

Preheat oven to 325F. Line a 9-by-13-inch baking pan with foil, leaving a 2-inch overhang on 2 sides. Mist foil with cooking spray.

Make crust: Pulse almonds in a food processor until finely chopped. Add flour, brown sugar and salt, and process until well combined. Add butter and pulse just until mixture begins to come together; it should not form a ball. Press mixture evenly over bottom of prepared pan. Bake for 25 minutes, or until set. Let cool on a wire rack.

Make filling: With an electric mixer on medium-high speed, beat cream cheese and sugar until smooth. Scrape down sides of bowl. Reduce speed to medium-low and add eggs, one at a time, beating until just combined. Beat in lemon juice, vanilla and salt.

Spread cream cheese mixture evenly over crust. Tap pan on countertop 3 or 4 times to burst air bubbles in filling. Place pan on a large roasting pan and put in oven. Pour hot tap water into roasting pan until it comes up about an inch around baking pan. Bake for 40 minutes, or until filling is just set. Cool completely on a wire rack, then cover with foil and refrigerate for at least 6 hours or overnight.

Use foil overhang to lift cheesecake out of pan and onto cutting board. Heat a large sharp knife under hot water; dry knife. Trim off edges of cheesecake. Carefully cut into 16 bars, rinsing knife under hot water and drying thoroughly between each cut.

Transfer bars to a serving platter. Decorate each bar with 5 blueberries in upper left corner to resemble stars on the American flag. Place jelly in a ziplock bag, seal bag and snip off about 1/6 inch at one bottom corner. Pipe jelly in thin lines on each bar to resemble stripes on flag.

Note:- Be sure to use seedless jelly so that you can pipe it in smooth, even lines onto the bars.
