I love Peach Cobbler

When I was growing up, summers meant going to the beach, fresh strawberries from the roadside stands, and my mothers Peach Cobbler... She always made it with Bisquit mix, and used this for our strawberry shortcake too. I find she was ahead of her time, apparently, as I just got an email from

Recipe Tip
What is "Healthified"?
We've replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the original.
If fresh peaches are available, use 4 cups sliced peeled peaches instead of the canned peaches. Or, you can use a 16-oz bag of frozen sliced peaches, thawed.
Did You Know?
The lemon juice used in this recipe adds a little sparkle that perks up the peach flavor.

Hi Sherry,
She's doing fine, I just spoke with her, and looking forward to getting to the "half-way" house (as I call it) in the next couple of days. She is thinking of everyone and will do some calling when she gets out of St Mary's.
Thanks for asking, I let her know you were thinking of her.
