Brown Sugar Bourbon Peach Pie

Brown Sugar Bourbon Peach Pie +1This pie is an end of a really long work week, so I’m going to get drunk on pie-pie. But seriously. I have had a series of really busy weeks, so when Friday came along, I decided to forgo happy hour and dinner plans to come home and dive straight into this galette.

My mom came for a visit and brought me the most wonderfully ripe peaches from a local peach festival near her town. I know, I know it’s a little cliché to say, but really, these peaches were so much sweeter and better than the ones I usually get at the store.

They were perfectly tender and juicy. Even their scent made my mouth water! So thanks, Mom, for saving a few of these peaches to bring to me! My mom used her peaches and made some pies with brown sugar crumble crust. I decided to take mine up a notch or two with a little bourbon. Perfect for a Friday evening happy hour, don’t ya think?

Cereal Milk Popsicles

Cereal Milk Popsicles by Natalie Paramore 2

Ok y’all this is one of the better things I’ve made in a while! I must say, I’ve been a little out of practice in the kitchen, but I’ve been working on a few things that I am excited to show up and first up are these tasty little cereal milk popsicles! A true treat indeed, the sweet, sugary milk left at the bottom of bowl after cereal is one of my favorite things. And it isn’t just me. The cereal milk phenomenon made wildly popular by Momofuku is now something you can easily make at home this summer. I wouldn’t be made if you made a boozy version, nope I sure would not be! But this here is a tried and true simply, no fail version. Grab a box of your fav childhood cereal, some almond milk and a little coconut milk ice cream and BOOM dessert is done. If you are really feeling adventurous, go ahead and make this breakfast. I won’t judge 🙂

Spicy Chocolate Peanut Butter Pie

Heyo! If you are anything like me, you totally waited too long for this whole Valentine’s Day thing. Oops! I mean let’s be honest gifts really aren’t my thing. In fact, giving gifts, gives yours truly major anxiety! There have definitely been times in my life when I should have given gifts, like it was expected (i.e. an ex-boyfriends Christmas gift, my sister’s 25th birthday), you know major times, but the stress got me and I just gave up. Seriously. I stress and stress and wonder if it’s the right thing? Is it too little? Too much? Am I too much? Ah! So then I usually just scratch the whole thing and decide to put myself in charge of making a cake, making a dinner reservation or hosting a get together. That is way more my style. Cooking, planning, making… all that I can handle. Giving an actual gift? Totally lose it. Creating an experience? That is something I love! That is something I like to do for my friends and family and those people near and dear to my little heart.
