This is Jenny! Jenny married our son Clint, last March. She is an amazing young woman. She is my one and only daughter-in-love! We are thrilled she's a part of our family! One of her many talents( seriously they'd go to the bottom of the page) is cooking. Last weekend Coach and I visited Clint and Jenny and had the best time. On Saturday morning, Jenny popped this delicious surprise out of the oven and served it with turkey bacon, pan fried potatoes and hot coffee. It was scrumptious and nutritious!

...a little humorous side note: This recipe is also intended to be low in fat. I however, like Paula Dean, have always cooked with butter and cream (and have the figure to prove it!), so when I was helping Jenny put this together on Friday night, I was a little bit sneaky. I was asked to get 1 cup of milk, but the only milk in their 'fridge' was non fat! So, I did what any self-respecting southern cook would do, I helped out the 'new little bride'....and I spiked her 1 cup of non fat milk with a little bit of HEAVY WHIPPING CREAM! I swear I didn't realize she was intentionally wanted this Peach French Toast to be 'non fat'! I'm not that bold and rebellious! Unfortunately, she caught me and will never let me forget it. Thanks Jenny, for going easy on me and making it a fun memory. A BIG thanks for showing me that something doesn't have to be high in calories , to be delicious!


  1. Dear Coachette,
    I would have done exactly the same thing! Why waste all those good ingredients by using non fat milk?!My philosophy is eat what tastes good, just eat less of it.
    This is the cutest blog. it may get me in the kitchen more this football season!
