Peaches, pecans, and spice come together in this delicious muffin that has become one of my favorite go-to breakfast treats. Of course, what are baked goods without tea and books? Just a lot of tasty calories we don't need. Hence, the tea and books to nourish the body and the mind.
I'm partial to muffins without butter or other spread, especially if they have a perfect crumble topping like this recipe has. There are a lot of fabulous peach muffin recipes out there, and so I can't pinpoint why I like this one so much, but I do.
It has lots of cinnamon, but because I really like spices, I'll add a 1/2 tsp of allspice next time.

Irish Country Series - Great Reads
The Irish Country series by Patrick Taylor is a long-running and wonderful series set in the delightful town of Ballybucklebo. It all began with An Irish Country Doctor and sixteen books later, ended with An Irish Country Yuletide. He even has An Irish Country Cookbook! The author's retirement was announced in 2021, and what a great legacy of stories he is leaving.
I am only halfway through the series, and will continue to keep reading because they're too good not to find out what happens with the doctors and the village of Ballybucklebo.
Be well, be kind, and may you enjoy life's simple pleasures whenever the opportunity arises.
