As summer days turn into crisp autumn mornings, my baking desire grows stronger.
I start daydreaming about pies, tarts, and apple cider donuts. The warm smell of cinnamon wafting from the kitchen oven.
I made a fresh peach and almond galette that brought that autumn aroma into my house on this cool and golden late summer afternoon.
This galette tastes very organic and has a slight sweetness from the honey, plus a nutty texture from the ground almond paste. The thick pate brisee is very easy to make.
I found this recipe in Country Living magazine.
You can find the recipe here.
Love that magazine - the country life, the interiors and styling, the food, the photography, you name it. I wish I could say I was going to the upcoming Country Living Fair in Ohio - it sounds very exciting. Anyone want to go in on a U-Haul with me for next year?
With my son in first grade now and my 4 year old at home and at my side - I have been busy. They keep me moving. Time is of the essence, so I've been trying to consolidate my blog time to the weekends with a wee bit of late evening computer time here and there. I haven't been able to come around and comment as much as I would like to. I am, however, getting caught up reading come Sundays with a big morning cup of coffee. I love that time.
We are hoping to go to the apple orchard around the corner. It is right by my house, so it is a must for September for us! I also have some decorating ideas up my sleeve, so I'll be back with all that.
Here's to a delighting and memory-filled fall.
