Peaches and Cream Pavlovas

I’m so behind on recipes. Summer is officially over and peaches are slowly leaving grocery stores shelves, and yet here we are with… Peaches and Cream Pavlovas! But who says pavlovas are strictly a summer recipe? If you can’t find peaches, there’s always berries and […]

Strawberry Peach Cobbler

I make peach cobbler every summer and for years this Bon Appetit recipe has been my go-to. This year I thought I’d try a different variation, and this one is adapted from Dorie Greenspan’s Everyday Dorie. I find drop-biscuit cobblers perfect for summer, but I’m not gonna lie; I’m […]

Strawberry Summer Cake

I welcome any excuse to have my apartment smell like a strawberry patch. Although it’s not quite summer yet, it’s on its way. Strawberries are here, letting us know it’s coming, evoking summer memories, preparing us for new ones. As a June baby, I’ve always […]
