Peach-Pecan Muffins

I looked high and low for this recipe a few weeks, months, years, ago. I have no idea how long ago, I think my mind has gone. Something was going on at church and I needed muffins. I ended up asking my friend Joyce@OctoberFarm for a recipe, and that was wonderful. Of course this morning I found my recipe. I hope you enjoy these, but the real reason I'm posting it is so I will know where to look for the recipe the next time I need it.
