Peach Oatmeal Bread

One of my favorite things is a recipe that has been shared with me.  First, because you know it’s tried and true – otherwise, they wouldn’t share it.  Second, whenever I make or bake it, I get to think about that person.  This Peach Oatmeal Bread is one of those recipes.

Thanks to my old neighbor Hollie for this one; I miss and think of you often!
