This is one of my favorite poems for Mom:

Mother's Day

I always think of my Mom when I read the poem above and I know she is waiting for me in heaven.  This is a link to my Mama’s Cathead Biscuits that was always one of my favorite recipes from her.

One of my favorite quotes about moms:

“A Mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world.  It knows no law, no pity,  it dares all things, and crushes down remorselessly all that stands in its path. ~~ Agatha Christie

I am excited to be spending Sunday with my girls and celebrating “Mom’s Day”.   They are taking me to lunch and we are going shopping afterwards. 

We would like to wish all the beautiful mothers around the world a Happy Mother’s Day and hope your day is filled with love.  Judy, Anne Parker and Leigh Harper.

PEACH CRUMB CAKE

Peach Crumb Cake - TSLC - CopyThis Peach Crumb Cake is wonderful with your morning coffee or serve to friends and family as a great dessert.  We love anything with peaches and this one will be a winner.

Cake:

1 (16 ounce) package frozen sliced peaches (could use fresh peach slices or canned slices, drained)

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup white granulated sugar

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, melted

1 cup sour cream

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

2 eggs

Whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and sugar in a large mixing bowl.  Pour in melted butter and sour cream.  Mix well with spoon.  Add vanilla extract and eggs. Mix to combine.  If using frozen peaches let thaw enough that you can cut into bite-sized pieces. (Can thaw a little in microwave) If using fresh or canned, be sure to drain canned peaches, then cut into pieces. Fold peaches into cake mixture.  Spray a 9 x 9 inch baking dish with cooking spray and add cake mixture.   Make the streusel recipe below and crumble on the top of cake mixture.

Streusel Topping:

1/3 cup white granulated sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 stick butter or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup, melted

Whisk together all ingredients but butter.  Melt butter and stir into flour mixture with spoon. Crumble on top of cake mixture. (I just do this with my hands) Bake cake in preheated 350 degree oven for 55 to 60 minutes until center tests done. Can sprinkle on powdered sugar before serving.  If you want to garnish with peach slices be sure to keep a few aside to go on the top. Makes 1 cake.  Enjoy!

This quote says it best:  “To win the Kentucky Derby is the goal of every trainer, every hot-walker, every backside person.  They may be just rubbing a horse, or hot-walking a horse, but they wonder if they would win the Kentucky Derby.” ~~Bob Lewis

The great thing about the Kentucky Derby is that you can watch it from Millionaire’s Row or the infield in Louisville, you can watch it with family at home or you can watch it with friends at a derby party and it will be an exciting time.  I hope you will join my state this weekend and enjoy the derby.  From my family to yours have a great derby weekend!
