  1. Please don’t show a recipe without the measurements of the ingredients. Don’t know how much brown sugar, butter, flour, oats and cinnamon to use for the Peach Crisp.

  2. Great recipe! Made this and took to carry-in dinner at work. A big hit 🙂 So easy too. Thanks for another great recipe.

  3. Hi ‘Christy
    Wonderful story as ususal. Don’t know if I like your inspirational thoughts or your recipes best! Misread the amount of sugar required when I made this for dinner last night – wound up with 1/2 cup instead of the 3/4 and it was still very sweet. Will make it that way again.
    Hope you’ve made a full recovery from your accident.
