September 5, 2017 Pies, Tarts & Pudding
Peach Slice

I first made this pie way, way back in my pre-blog baking days. It was probably around 2004 or 2005, and while I don’t remember if I made my own pastry or not, I definitely know that I made it with canned peaches. After making Rhubarb Custard Pie in 2014 and Blueberry Custard Pie in 2015, I knew […]

Peach Dumplings with Bourbon Hard Sauce

Peach Filling

There’s really only a certain section of society that understands the importance of peach season. The citizens of Winona for one (Hi Alexis!) and my food blogging friends. It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I only had one item on my peach to-do list for 2015: dumplings or bust. Like most great successes […]

Brown Sugar Bourbon Ice Cream

Well, I thought we’d go out with a bang before it’s all Apples, Pumpkins and Pears* around here!  Since I started a new job right in the middle of the summer, it kind of upset my flow in the kitchen, and feel like I didn’t get to make as many pies, crumbles, popsicles and ice […]

Peach, Tomato & Goat Cheese Crostini

August 13, 2012 Appetizers

  I feel like Kramer right now with his Mackinaw Peaches: Jerry, this is a miracle of nature that exists for a brief period! It’s like the aurora borealis! He’s right, because there’s really only a few more weeks to take advantage of amazing local peaches. I’ve had a huge basket on my counter for the last few […]

Peaches & Cream Vanilla Bean Popsicles {Gastropost Mission #9}

August 1, 2012 Frozen

Last week’s Gastropost mission was to recreate or revisit a food experience that will refresh sunny memories of summers past. I thought a lot about my summers as a kid: basically just unstructured days of riding bikes, swimming, and playing with the gang of kids on my street. And popsicles. Lots of popsicles. This is […]

Danielle, her sister Ashley and I took a lovely drive out into the country on my second day in Calgary. Did we go to look at beautiful scenery? Experience some fresh, crisp Alberta air? Nope, we went for pie.
