We love this time of year as summer winds down and stone fruits like nectarines and peaches come into season. Delicious individually, picked fresh from the tree or purchased at the farmers market, we love their juicy goodness. Of course, if you utilize them to create a tasty dessert, they’re even better! So we’ve created this stone fruit cobbler which has just the right ratio of tart and sweet, and pairs perfectly with a dollop of freshly whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Men love pie. It’s as simple as that. But we don’t like pie crust that is too heavy, greasy, or dry as dust. It should be light, flaky and have a smooth, buttery finish. That’s why I absolutely love this recipe! Having tried numerous versions in the past, this version by far makes the best crust I’ve ever tasted. To channel Bubba Gump for a moment, I like it on sweet pies, savory pies, fruit pies, hand pies, pecan pies, quiche pies, pies for lunch, pies for dinner…. well, you get the idea. Want to make a pie? Just make this recipe. It will make you popular with all the guys in your life. Read more of this post

In our house, we love the combination of chocolate and peanut butter. Obviously we’re huge fans of Reese’s peanut butter cups, so this recipe takes that idea and runs with it. And why not? There’s just something so satisfying about the two ingredients blended together into one giant chewy, gooey cookie that we can’t resist serving these up all on their own, with a tall glass of milk, or even with a dollop of vanilla ice cream.

Basically a yummy butter cookie, this New England staple gets its flavor from cinnamon and sugar. Be prepared to make a lot of these, because once your family tastes this delightful gem, they won’t last long! Read more of this post
