Peach Pie

image

You had to know this was coming. How could I peel, slice, and freeze all of those peaches without making a pie? And I don’t even like peach pie! But when I think of a quintissential summer dessert, peach pie is what I think of. Bright,...

How To Freeze Peaches

image

Every day for the past few weeks, as I took my lunchtime walk, I would walk past a lady selling peaches at a little roadside stand. I stopped and talked to her, learned that she owned the farm where they came from, checked the...

Adirondack Salmon Chowder

image

I have a confession. I have a fear of cooking seafood. It’s sad but true. If you look back at the history of this blog you will find zero (zero!) seafood recipes. Can anyone else relate? I mean there are so many intimidating questions – Where do...

Pizza Bites

image

Another delicious recipe for that pizza dough I’ve been raving about. I got this recipe from Annies Eats (the same place I got the pizza crust – that girl knows her pizza!), and we loved it. Mike loves any sort of stromboli/pepperoni roll, so...

Baked Zucchini Sticks

image

  We’re always looking for new ways to eat zucchini. Well, I am at least. Mike loves his zucchini simple and straightforward – sauteed with salt and pepper and parmesan cheese, and is hesitant to try any other version. While I also really like zucchini...

Blueberry Sauce (and a Giveaway!)

image

*Don’t miss the blueberry giveaway at the bottom of this post!* It should be no secret around here that Mike LOVES blueberries. Seriously, I think I post a blueberry recipe once a week!  But it makes him happy, and it causes him to give...

S’mores Cookies

image

Apparently Tuesday was national s’mores day and I missed it. I’m a little late, but trust me, these cookies are worth the wait. After the sucess of my s’mores whoopie pies, I was on the search for more s’mores type cookies. I made these fun...

Sweet Corn Salad

image

This is a great summer salad.  It’s fresh and unique, and the combination of summer vegetables is delicious. We had a family cookout last weekend and I was assigned a salad. Someone else was already bringing a veggie tray, so I knew I wanted something...

Blueberry Cheesecake

image

I’m on a roll. I have added blueberries into so many recipes, and blueberry season’s not over yet! This blueberry cheesecake was a highlight for me. Much like the pie, it was a new challenge, because it was my first ever cheesecake. Don’t cheesecakes...

Tomato, Basil, Mozzarella Baguette

image

This is so simple I feel guilty really posting a recipe for it. But this is one of our favorite summer dinners, and until I had this exact sandwich in London (multiple times), I never thought to make it on my own. All it consists...
