It's good to share

Pinched almost 5,000 times on the Just A Pinch recipe site and shared thousands of times on Pinterest, this easy to make recipe has been voted most popular. 

In 2010 I was in a Kraft contest along with thousands of other home cooks and was going to whip up a little peach-inspired video including all of our recipes. I hadn’t entered a peach recipe yet, so I quickly made what I called “Peachy Keen” with ingredients I had in my pantry. It turned out good, but I didn’t consider it anything to write home about. 

Oddly enough, I’ve only made it once, but friends of mine and strangers have made it over and over again, so I guess it must be better than I thought it was. It also made an appearance in Huffington post, although under another name, using my photo and recipe (we won’t go there). What can I say-when you’re voted most popular you have to take the good with the bad! Here’s the recipe if you’d like to give it a shot.
