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?

S’mores Pie

S'mores Pie 1+Confession time. I’ve never been super in love with chocolate. I know, I know you’re thinking how crazy I must be. Like how can I possibly be someone who blogs about pies and sweets and doesn’t love chocolate. Well in my defense, I have met others like myself. There aren’t many of us, but we are out there lurking among the regular chocolate lovers of the world, ordering lemon desserts and avoiding M&M’s like the plague.

Surprisingly enough, every now and then I will get a craving for a piece of dark chocolate. I guess all that chocolate hating has made me a little bitter. Haha see what I did there? Ok, maybe a little too much. Alright next confession, I’ve only been camping once and it was terrible. I won’t go into too many details but it involved over 100 degree temperatures and a really, really long drive.

Blueberry Basil Pie

Blueberry Basil Pie by Natalie Paramore 2
You guys! I am so sorry. I’ve been holding back on you. I mean THIS pie. BLUEBERRY pie. It’s lovely isn’t it? And perfect for summer aka something you should be making right now. Yes, go right now, go bake! I had a lot of fun with this pie. It’s one of those simple ones, like the strawberry pie I made, that are just always a good idea. I suppose that begs the question of when is pie not a good idea, who I am to judge? I can almost always find a reason for pie. Dinner party? Pie. Going to my Granny’s house? Pie. Monday? Definitely pie.
