I’ll be honest, fruit isn’t my favorite thing. I love vegetables, love them! But as far as fruit I’m fine to be without it. Lately we have eating a lot more fruit and vegetables. My husband has been doing most of the fruit eating but I am trying hard to incorporate more fruit into my diet. One delicious way that I’ve enjoyed doing that is with these Brown Sugar Peaches.
This recipe is one that my mother-in-law makes. My husband has always told me about it but I had never tried it. I think the time she made it was the second time I went with Tyler to visit his family. This was one time I shouldn’t have gone. I was coughing and coughing before he picked me up for the five hour drive. I felt miserable and slept most of the way there. I got so sick and lost my voice. I ended up in the urgent care with laryngitis and take note I’m not a person who goes to the doctor every time I get sick. It was the first time that I met my brother-in-law and he referenced it in his best man speech at our wedding. He said the first time I met Emily I said to Tyler, “She seems really great but she doesn’t talk much” to which Tyler responded, “I know, isn’t it great!” Obviously Tyler was kidding and I had laryngitis so his brother has learned that I do indeed talk. To make a long story short, I didn’t try these peaches and I was missing out, they are delicious!

I love these peaches for a great side dish. They are the perfect summer dish too. We had them alongside some grilled chicken and some other delicious side dishes that I will be sharing with you soon.
