Fresh Peach Pie

Fresh peach pie is my husband's favorite pie. I've made him two so far this summer, so I thought I'd better add it to the blog.

5 C sliced peaches
3/4 C sugar
3 Tbl flour
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cinnamon
Dash of salt
Peel and slice peaches.

Add sugar, flour, spice and salt.

Mix lightly.

Pour into the unbaked pie shell and dot with butter.

Top the pie with top crust. Crimp edges. Decorate top of pie with shapes and slits.

Bake in 400 degrees oven for 40-45 minutes or until brown.

Serve warm with ice cream or whipping cream.

Vegetable and Pesto Sauce

After making a wonderful batch of pesto, we decided to try it with some fresh vegetables and some leftover grilled steak.


8 oz. grilled steak, cut into bit-sized pieces
1 red pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2 C sliced mushrooms
1 C sliced zucchini
1 C sliced yellow squash
olive oil
garlic salt
Homemade pesto

In large skillet, heat oil and garlic salt. Add mushroom and saute until tender. Add all other vegetables and saute until slightly soft. Add meat and two large spoonfuls of pesto. Heat another 3-4 minutes.

Serve over pasta.

Really, Really Good Pesto

If you love the green stuff, this is the recipe for you! Pesto is fresh, flavorful, and oh so easy to make.


3 C fresh basil leaves, packed
1/2 C olive oil
4 cloves of garlic, peeled
1/4 C pine nuts
3/4 C grated Parmesan cheese

Put all ingredients into the bowl of your food processor or blender and blend into a smooth paste.

Seriously, that's it.
