Peach Caramel Sticky Buns

peach caramel rolls

Would you like to throw a stone at me? Here, take all that’s left of my peach. Blood-red, deep: Heaven knows how it came to pass. Somebody’s pound of flesh rendered up. Wrinkled with secrets And hard with the intention to keep them. Why, from silvery peach-bloom, From that shallow-silvery wine-glass on a short stem This rolling, dropping, heavy globule? I am thinking, of course, of the peach…

Peach Puff Pastry Pie

Peach Puff Pastry Pie

I realized today that I hadn’t made one pie this summer, not even ONE! Luckily I had a pile of peaches on my counter and rough puff pastry in my fridge, and so decided to remedy the situation immediately by putting the two together. Peach Puff Pastry Pie was born. While I usually prefer a traditional pie crust, this comes in a very close second. I did make…

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…

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…

a little pie party

Monday, September 24, 2012

A few weeks ago Hannah from Honey & Jam commented on Twitter that she could ‘really use a piece of pie right about now.’ I had just made a pie; it was sitting proud and pretty on my kitchen counter, and so I tweeted back, wishing I could send her over a slice. Stephanie from Desserts For Breakfast and Beth from Local Milk also chimed in, and we…

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…
