Peachy Sunday

Ahhhh Sundays in the summer, I love them! Living in beautiful British Columbia, summers are wonderful for our fresh fruit. I have had it on my mind for a while now to make a peach pie. and I had come across many recipes while scrolling through Pinterest. When someone asks me about Pinterest, 2 words, Life Changing!

I am crazy about my recipe book Butter Baked Goods, it has the best recipes, and is my go to for the pie crust recipe. I don’t believe in store bought crusts!If you follow my on Instagram, I mentioned that I would share my Peach Pie recipe that I used today. Of course, I think that I always need to double my recipes, I really need to remember that it’s just the 2 of us now!

There is something about vintage Corning Ware that I just love!

Here is the link for the recipe I used today, it was a bit runnier than I anticipated, I would perhaps add 2 more Tbsp of cornstarch to the recipe.

Summer Lovin’

Yes, summer lovin’! I love the sunshine, the activities that come with summer time, and of course the fresh fruit and veggies that are so abundant around here at this time of year. I must admit, I do have a slight addiction to canning and mason jars! I guess it’s not a dangerous type of addiction that can cause harm, so I am safe!

love my sign from Typo shop in Australia!

Currently I have 30 pounds of cabbage fermenting for another 5-6 weeks to make my own sauerkraut as well. I haven’t tried it before, so I am curious how it will turn out. This morning I came across a recipe for Peach Pie Moonshine, so it has me thinking I should try this next, along with some more mustards and a Siracha sauce of my own. We have an abundance of peppers growing in our yard and I will make use of them!

Here I wanted to share a couple of my canned goods from the past couple of weeks.

Fresh Strawberry Heaven!

This time of year gets me very excited with all the wonderful berries that are coming in to season. I start researching well in advance as to what I can make that’s new with the local berries that are coming out.

Today was the first trip of 2015 to the strawberry patch! Today little bird and baby bird came with me to get some berries. After a recommendation, we decided to try a new berry patch, Krause Farms in Aldergrove. We arrived around 10 am, and the parking lot was nearly full, so of course a little panic set in, are there any berries left!?

Lucky for us there were!  Although it was somewhat picked over, we did manage to pick what we needed. IMG_7848IMG_7857

Once I got home, it was time to make something yummy for dessert with the strawberries. I am always wanting to try new recipes, and I hit the jackpot on this one. I found this cute little blog that has everything on it that I love! Here is a link to her recipe for the Strawberry Pie. Of course it said you could use a store bought pie shell, but that is kind of against my baking religion! I resort to my old stand by recipe from Butter Baked Goods for a pie shell. Of course I use Rogers flour, I have to support where papa bird works!

I must say, if you have fresh strawberries handy, try this recipe, it is delicious and simple. Papa bird who doesn’t like pies, really enjoyed it!!!
