All Time Favorite Recipe!

This is the recipe that defines my childhood.
This is the recipe that conjures up countless special family memories.
This is my favorite recipe ever.


Each summer, between Memorial and Labor Day, my family goes to our house on the TN River/KY lake. Each weekend, my whole family fills the brightly-colored home to spend time together, play on the water or go boating, and enjoy good home cooked meals. (By the way, when I say my "whole" family, I mean it! Both sets of grandparents come up, as my dad's parents have a house near us, too. My brother, his friends, my friends, cousins, and my aunts and uncles... the whole shebang!) These moments have been etched into my memory as some of the best in my life. Since most of this time revolves around the kitchen and food, it's no small wonder I've become such a lover of food :) It's important to me, mostly, because of the family and friends you are sharing the meal with. This recipe has been served as long as I can remember. On birthdays, anniversaries, and summertime holidays, anyone at our lake house can count on this being served! I wanted to share the recipe with you because of how much I love it and what a big part it has played, not only in my childhood, but my life with my family. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Best if using home-grown peaches.

This is the BEST ice cream maker. Hands down. It's a little more expensive than your regular ice cream makers, but it lasts a lifetime & is SO worth it!

Pardon my pictures... this stuff is so out-of-this-world AMAZING that I forgot to snap some good pictures. Trust me. You would forget too.

In case you can't read it, we also add 8 oz of Cool Whip to this recipe. Makes it SO creamy!
If you like the chunks of peaches like we do, roughly chop them. If not, you can certainly blend them in the blender.

I would love to hear about - or see the recipes - for some of your favorite family recipes. I love seeing and hearing about other people's fond memories surrounding food! Enjoy! xx


  1. Peach is the BEST homemade flavor! My family always made it several times every summer growing up, so it brings back special memories for me too.

    I actually was just home for a visit in July for my mom's birthday and my aunt had the entire family over for guess what? Homemade Peach Ice Cream! :-)

  2. This looks yummy! I am a huge fan of peaches...actually enjoying some peach green tea at the moment! :) I'll have to try this!
