Sweet Home Saturday - Just (Southern) Peachy

We've been getting juicy southern peaches in our CSA "Fruit Lovers" add-on for the past few weeks. They're gorgeous, right? I've used a fair number making my very favorite summer salad. But this past week, I decided we needed something sweet! I found this recipe for Peach Crisp and it sounded perfect! 

I peeled, pitted and sliced several peaches while my littlest man mixed up flour, white and brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a big bowl. He loves helping in the kitchen, and we have so much fun! 

It can, however, be a bit distracting having a two-year-old in the kitchen, and I ended up not following the recipe exactly. What we ended up with was so amazing though, that I'm going to make it the exact same way next time. And when I say next time, I mean as soon as our newest batch of peaches ripens. I'm counting the seconds. This peach crisp was that good. Accidently polishing off a quarter of the entire dish while sneaking in a tasting spoon good. I may or may not have sent Max a photo text at work, warning him if he didn't come home soon, there was a possibility I'd finish off the entire peach crisp before he could get any. It was literally all gone the next day. The best part? It was super easy. The original recipe actually calls for a sauce, which I did make but didn't care for. Plus, I don't think the dish really need anything added (even ice cream, and you know how I feel about my ice cream!). 

Peach Crisp (Adapted from the Pioneer Woman)

1 cup flour
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
freshly grated nutmeg (or 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg if you don't have whole nutmeg on hand - but I really love freshly grated!)
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 stick butter
6-7 whole peaches
1/2 whole lemon

In a medium bowl, mix first five ingredients (best done by a two-year-old wielding a tiny spatula). Cut butter into small pieces and work in using a fork or pastry cutter. Set aside topping mixture.

Peel, pit and slice peaches and place into a glass baking dish (8" or 9"). Zest half a lemon directly on peaches, and squeeze juice from lemon half on, then stir well. Cover peaches with crumb topping mixture, then cover with aluminum foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. Remove foil and bake 20 - 30 minutes longer, until the top is crisp and brown. Resist the desire to eat the entire thing straight out of the pan.


  1. I improvised (used gluten free pancake mix cause I didn't have flour) & this is baking in the toaster oven now. I can't wait to try it!

  2. As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from Parkinson , i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My husband suffered parkinson and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony of so many people who was cured from parkinson, and so many other with similar body problem, and they left the contact of this doctor who had the herbal cure to parkinson I never imagined parkinson has a cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in one months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. parkinson has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on drwilliams098675@gmail.com on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my testimony .

  3. An amazing testimony on how i conceive and also get cure from my fibroid permanently with his natural herbs , i wonder why people still don't believe that roots and herbs are very essential and fruitful in different aspect, especially when you can't conceive and bear children. I am a living witness because I tried all I could to be pregnant but all to no avail, on this faithful day, i decided to check the net for updates on healthy living and i came across testimonies of lot of women who Dr Onokun has helped with his native herbs to conceive. i decided to put a try because this has been my greatest problem in life so I emailed Dr Onokun, and he told me what to do which i did, after which he sent me some roots and herbs syrup and gave me step by step guild lines on how and when to have sex with my man.
