Every year my Godmother asks me what I want for Christmas. My answer is always the same, “Peach cobbler.” This heavenly dessert of hers is completely off the hook; it’s also made with love. Though I won’t attempt to recreate El’s cobbler, I can put my heart into making and giving other delicious treats this holiday season. The mouthwatering examples below are definitely a source of inspiration!

      lol “nagy” is right! It’s Christmas! Some of us have earned the indulgence! If it makes you feel better you can eat these on the elliptical…

        ” ‘ nagy ‘ is right! ” what exzaccally do u mean by that !

    • Cecilia Tipton

      These foods eaten in moderation are not going to do you harm. Any food including so called “healthy” foods eaten in large quantities will cause weight gain.

      • cheryl nagy

        b-cuz , these foods r not b-ing eaten in moderation . i would also like 2 add that it seems that the individuals commenting on my statement appear 2 not b aware of the findings of the most current research as pertains 2 the REASONS that Sugars & Fats in particular r b-ing consumed in the quantities which , they most assuredly , r

          I think you should worry less about other people’s waistlines and more about your atrocious “text-speak.” We are not teenagers. Use your words, please.

          • cheryl nagy

            please confine your remarks 2 the subject b-ing discussed [ on DISQUS , not DISCUSS , by the way ] . language is fluid , u r intolerant . ew , atrocious ! do not b instructing others about what they should or should not b ” worrying “

          • LeicaMack

            “! do not b instructing others” That’s exactly what you ‘do be’ doing: instructing others on what they should and should not eat. Honestly, you have a valid argument, but if you cannot communicate it clearly, your message will never be taken seriously.

          • cheryl nagy

            gross mis-characterization of my remarks . i merely commented that , in my opinion [ imo ] , i would prefer 2 c AT LEAST SOME recipes b-ing suggested that r more healthful than those b-ing offered here . it is seriously obvious that anyone is free 2 eat anything they want 2 eat . i just feel that a balance of choices can b provided . & back 2 the texting-shorthand & slang — inappropriately off-subject

        • Cecilia Tipton

          How do you know they are not eaten in moderation? What current research are you referring to? If you claim to be such an expert why do you have such a hard time posting in proper English and not in lazy text speak?

            These are not examples of scientific based research only the opinions of two individuals neither of them has actually conducted any scientific research to validate their views. While their information may be valid their approach to disseminate this information is suspect.just because a person has MD or PhD behind their name does not make them an expert. Furthermore scientists who have actually done research question the validity of their claims.

          • cheryl nagy

            umm , their OPINIONZ r based on ScientificResearch . az alwayz , there is not absolute consensus az 2 the concluzionz reached . many experts DO agree with theze resultz . i , myself , do not find the venuez of PBS & C-SPAN 2 b at all suspect . i have read & viewed many other presentations regarding health matters . whether i am ” expert ” or not would depend on one’z definition ; i feel that i am well informed . & so , what amount of actual ScientificResearch have u yourself conducted . i am curious 2 know the way in which u , personally , determine the expertise of any particular individual ; in az much az , degreez from & associations with well-known & highly regarded institutions of learning r deemed 2 b insufficient 4 u . OK , u win ! ( just exactly what , i’m not quite sure ) but u can have the last response . b-cuz az all mature people know , whoever haz the LAST WORD WINZ the ” discussion ” . az far az i am concerned , u have beaten the life out of this topic . EAT UP ! EAT ANYTHING U LIKE — 2 your hearts content !

            I can not even understand what you are trying to say. I’m not even being sarcastic. I can not take anyone seriously wHo tAlkz LiKe tHiz or whatever you are attempting to do. You may or may not have a good message or opinion here, however I simply can not take advice from anyone who spells worse than my ten year old. In order to be taken more seriously, you really should considering using proper English, punctuation and spelling. Your message would reach more people.

          • cheryl nagy

            intolerant & judgmental . this haz been quite a revelatory experience . i’m surprized at how seriously u take yourself . i’m not attempting 2 advize anyone . i simply began by offering an opinion

          • Alyson Trent

            How am I being judgmental? I am actually interested in your opinion. I was attempting to explain to you that it is impossible to understand your typing and even harder to take anything you say seriously, when you type like a small child. I, quite literally, could not understand or read your post and what ever opinion and/or advice was contained. How am I – or anyone else – supposed to take your talk to “ScientificResearch” seriously, when you are unable to spell the word “has” correctly. There is a time and place for everything and trying to have an adult conversation is not the place for teenage text speak.

          • cheryl nagy

            u r stating that u refuze 2 take me seriously b-cuz u disapprove of my style of expressing myself . u clearly understand that haz is simply the phonetic spelling of has . u understood that quite well . but u disapprove . judging otherz . & then u continue that i am attempting 2 ” advize ” u . i really don’t know HOW u arrived at that . at any rate , i’m planning on watching the BBC’s DIVINE WOMEN on the CityCollegesOfChicago PBS Televizion station right , so i will b otherwize occupied

          • Alyson Trent

            no, I am saying I can not understand your posts. However, I see you have failed to understand mine.

    • angie497

      Millions of websites with billions of healthy recipes out there if that’s what you want, but instead you choose to argue semi-literately about an article featuring treats…

      • cheryl nagy

        the tenacity with which u of adult age cling 2 your ” treats ” . the extent 2 which u r so threatened by text-shorthand & slang . this is all extremely revealing . i continue 2 maintain that it is not necessary 4 treats 2 b laden with Sugar : Sweeteners & Fats 2 b enjoyable

        • angie497

          Adult age? Well, I suppose that explains the problem. We’ve been attempting to have a rational conversation with a petulant adolescent.

    …someone is going to get a lump of coal in her stocking and a visit from the Ghost of Christmas-Past.

    You’re not supposed to eat the whole recipe. This is to make and share. Besides, the epidemic of people posting with bad grammar is far scarier.

  3. Cecilia Tipton

    This post by PBS was meant to give individuals some ideas on holiday treats they could make to give or share with family and friends however one individual chose to make it her soapbox and force her beliefs in text speak to others. Any gift a person gives to another is an act of love and to make it less than that is to deny the real meaning of the season.
