About Me

Hi there! Thanks for stopping by!

My name is Ashton, and I named this blog A Sweet Peach because I have a MAJOR sweet tooth, and my mom has always called me peach. She calls my brother pickle, so I feel like I lucked out. The salty pickle just doesn’t have the same ring to it.

I started this blog because I got sick. An odd reason to be sure, but its true. I’ve always loved food, sweets in particular, and everything about the process of making it. When I got sick, I started to feel like I was loosing pieces of myself. It started with lethargy, and I slowly started loosing mobility in my fingers, then my legs. My joints and skin ached constantly. I lacked the energy to do almost everything. So I looked at cookbooks. I Imagined the tastes and textures of the beautiful things jumping off of the page. I shared in the experiences of the cooks I learned from as I read about their loves and their lives. At my lowest, I could still flip a page. The love of food was a part of me that I could always hold onto no matter how bad things got. And I started this blog so that I could share that piece of me with you.

I hope you’ll join me in my journey through the joy and struggles of life and food.

FYI- I have a chocolate chip recipe rating system, 1 chocolate chip means they are awful, and 5 for amazing. Just a heads up so that when I mention the chocolate chips you don’t think I’m crazy. Or at least not completely.

  1. Your blog is very well done, Ashtie. The food you’re making looks so beautiful that you’re tempting even me who tries to live without all those sweets. Loving you and loving your writing.

  2. I’ve never gone to a blog before and if I do, I prefer to go to yours first, knowing that it’ll be great! Now, just have to figure out how to navigate through it. Thinking about you all the time and loving you Ashton!! Aunt Diane

I can't wait to hear from you! Let me know your thoughts!
