Some of the things I am loving right now…
The 8 pints of blueberries that plead with me to turn them into jam every time I open the fridge. Without fail.
My herb garden for its loyalty in spitting out herbs just as quickly as I use them up.
Fat strawberries with naught else but the clean, crisp taste of freshly whipped heavy cream.
And last but not least: pie. In every known shape and form.
Pies that explode with old-fashioned summer flavor upon each and every bite.
Like this rustic galette with peaches, cinnamon and cream cheese. Ginger spice entirely optional.
The distinct flavor hidden inside the peaches is highlighted by a rich, cream filling surrounded by a buttery, flaky crust.
With one bite my heart was singing the praises of summer.
The very essence of which is captured with this pie.
