I'm Kathy Lloyd. I grew up on a farm near Elmore, MN and have lived in Fairmont for over 44 years. I have always loved to cook, even when I was very young. I loved to stay with my Aunt Dorothy during my childhood. She was a great cook and used to give me freedom in the kitchen, teaching me along the way. She made recipes from our Norwegian heritage, along with pies, homemade doughnuts, yeast bread and cinnamon rolls.

There’s nothing better than a fresh peach!
I love all fruit, but nothing can beat those fresh summer peaches! We love the Colorado ones that are ready later than some but are always good, especially this summer!
There’s nothing better than a fresh peach all by itself, but sometimes it’s fun to dress them up in a recipe. Here is one of my favorites! I’m not sure where I obtained this one, it’s been in my recipe file for many years!
1 cup flour
1 Tbsp sugar
1 1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3 Tbsp butter
1/3-1/2 cup milk
Mix together all ingredients to make a soft dough, pat 1/4 inch thick into a 8 inch skillet or pie plate, allow some dough to hang over. Slice 6 fresh peaches, toss with 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, place on dough, dot with 1 1/2 Tbsp butter, fold hanging dough toward center (with some peaches showing in center). Bake at 375-400 degrees for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm or cold with ice cream or whipped topping.
