Peach Raspberry Pie

At the height of summer the farmers market is full of stone fruit and berries. Delicious as is, but pie was made for seasonal fruit. I went to a pool party back in July and decided to make a lattice pie using fruit I picked up at a local farm. Sweet peaches and tart raspberries…

Free-Form Stone Fruit Tart

It’s the height of plum and peach season- we came home from the grocery story with a few buckets full. I made many fruit crisps this summer and decided to make a free form pie instead, just to change up the presentation.  When I first started teaching myself to cook, I ordered “Once Upon a…
