Peach Apple Cherry Pie

Monday, June 11, 2018

‘Have you been online yet?’ my husband asks from the couch. It’s 8:45 am, and I am searching the kitchen for breakfast. Most mornings, upon waking, I reach for my phone next to me on my nightstand, and check all the icons chirping at me like hungry baby birds. Email, facebook, instagram, twitter, usually in that order. I despise the impulse, but I’m too tired to stop my…

roasted peach + salted caramel pops (with vanilla and bourbon)

Monday, August 8, 2016

I missed Billy’s Popsicle Week back in June. I stuck my popsicle molds somewhere last winter ‘so I knew where they were’ and then of course, couldn’t find them when warm weather hit. Last week my husband gently guided me down to the basement to clean out our storage room filled with (mostly my) boxes and piles and whatnot, and lo and behold, there they were, tucked in…

peach streusel bars: the year of pulses

Wednesday, June 29, 2016

And indeed there will be time To wonder, “Do I dare?” and, “Do I dare?” Time to turn back and descend the stair, With a bald spot in the middle of my hair — (They will say: “How his hair is growing thin!”) My morning coat, my collar mounting firmly to the chin, My necktie rich and modest, but asserted by a simple pin — (They will say:…

Peach Crumble Pie

Thursday, August 21, 2014

Years ago, after completing college and moving back in with my parents for a spell, I would pick my Grandma up once a week and take her out shopping. She was close to 90 and could no longer drive, but was always eager to get out of the house and buy her own groceries and necessities. One of her favorite haunts was a neighborhood department store that she…

peach and cherry galettes

Monday, August 19, 2013

I’m sneaking in for a post. I just couldn’t help myself; there were cherries. Not just any cherries, but hand-picked cherries dripping from trees like drops of rain: red, sparkling drops of sweet-tart rain. We filled our bucket gleefully, and my baker-heart had prophetic visions of flaky turnovers leaking dark juices, and sweet-sour chutney served next to roasted chicken; cherry and vanilla bean compote to cover the tops…

ginger peach muffins

Saturday, July 30, 2011

This is another recipe from Kim Boyce’s ‘Good To The Grain’ cookbook that I’ve been enamored with. I had some friends coming over and happened to have all the ingredients on hand, so muffins were made. I’ve never been that interested in whole wheat muffins – they are usually too dry and dense. But I had a feeling I could trust Ms. Boyce with this one. I’m glad…
