Peach Galette

All those wonderful summer fruits are coming into season, and I couldn’t resist the peaches last week. I’ve been craving summer fruit pies lately, but I’ve also hit a wall of lethargic laziness (I would blame it on the heat, but that’s really just an excuse).

No-Bake Fruit Tarts

It has been ridiculously hot these past few days.  Hot enough to prevent me from going anywhere near the stove or oven.  I did try grilling once, but that was excruciatingly miserable.  I have been making due with cold food, and just waiting, fingers crossed, for the weather to turn.  This is probably the first…

Apple Pie

As American as apple pie!  This is a simple, classic, no frills (other then in the decoration, I simply could not resist), apple pie recipe.  It was handed down to me by my mother, who got it from her mother.  I have yet to strike out with this recipe, but I have heard my fair…
