I love to buy the big jugs of Peach Tea (Diet!) that is so popular right now, but I'd love it even more if I could make my own! Come on, Ms. Paula ( or Bobby! ), a wonderful diet peach tea for all us diabetics, and everyone else, would be fantastic!!! Thanks!

LOVE watching your show! Don't try many things though since I don't "have to cook" much anymore - I'm widowed but have a grandson living with me. Keep up the Best Dishes! Yummnnmm! PS: I've tried to post my Aunt Fritz's receipe for Divinity - she's made it for over 70 years! - but don't know how/where to do so.

Maybe I live too far north to have the sweet tooth folks down south do (a friend of mine puts brown sugar on EVERYTHING), but I like to sweeten my tea with Tourbonado sugar instead of a simple syrup or regular sugar. That hint of residual Molasses tastes fantastic! But I'm willing to throw some mint and lemon into the pool. That would taste equally as fantastic!
