The local farmer's markets are bursting with peaches and nectarines lately. So before we wrap up this summer, we can all use a little peach crisp. I know its back-to-school and the top of the calendar now reads "September," but we can still pretend its summer time when you have a mouth full of this peach pie.
I'm currently well into 5 months pregnant with twins. Yes, TWINS! One of the most common questions people love asking me is if I have any cravings. Cravings, that I do not have but plenty of aversions. One of them being baked goods, you're not going to catch me eating a muffin or cookie any time soon, unless its my toddler shoving it down my throat insisting that I MUST eat this and he MUST feed it to me. You'll be surprised how often this scenario plays out in our household. Just think in another two years, I'll have two more pair of hands doing this to me. Mmmm... parenthood.
Anyways, back to my crisp. Even though sweets is off my to-eat list lately, I still love fruit. The joy of living in California is that you can have such a variety of fruit all year round. My summer diet has been chock full of plums, figs, watermelon, peaches, berries, I can go on... Thankfully, my twins are okay with me eating some baked peaches because this peach crisp is a must eat. I'm sure I'll be baking one of these every peach season from now on. peach crisp
