Date Power Bars

I would say that we do a pretty good job of eating well in our house.  Most days I have the fridge packed with fruit and veggies with healthy snacks made up and dinner planned to a science.  But if I’m going to be honest, there are some days that I’m not on my A game.  And the first thing … View The Post

Plum Coffee Cake (Two-Ways)

I’m tired.  Of picking plums.  No really, I am. Don’t get me wrong, I’m super grateful to have a plum tree, and don’t want to sound like a whiner, but this tree HAS NOT STOPPED.  Seriously, this small, unassuming, and not-so-pretty plum tree in our yard has proven to be the Magic Porridge Pot of fruit trees (if you haven’t … View The Post

Peaches & Cream Scones

I’ve been making scones since I was 14 years old, so when I decided to whip up a batch of fresh peach scones (I had peaches coming out of our ears…not that I’m complaining) for a playdate that Charlie was having, I didn’t think twice.

Summer Fruit Galette

Summer Fruit Galette

Piles of fresh summer fruit are wrapped in perfectly flaky pastry in this rustic, simple but impressive fruit galette. The pie crust recipe makes enough for two galettes, so double the fruit filling if you want to make two. Otherwise the crust freezes really nicely for up to a month when packed in a plastic resealable bag.

Strawberry Rhubarb Bars (Gluten-Free)

I still remember the first time (which was coincidentally the last time) that I tried rhubarb straight out of the garden.  Now, I don’t mean in a pie or jam, I mean straight out of the garden with nothing else.  Wow. My mouth hurts just thinking about it.  Not that it deterred me a single bit.  It remains one of … View The Post
