All the better--she's giving you a gift from her heart. It is really tough when funds are tight and you want to do s/thing for s/one you love. She's giving her time and her talent--I know you treasure her (and she adores you and wants the two of you to be happy)!!!!!!

My Mom taught me to make the most delightful, light peach pie. Bake an empty shell. Peel and slice your fresh peaches and set aside. Make a glaze for the peaches with water/sugar/corn starch and a couple peach pits to add color. Mom would then put the peaches into the shell and pour the glaze over them. I put the glaze over the peaches in a bowl, then use a slotted spoon to lift them from the glaze. When done filling the shell, top with freshly whipped cream and enjoy.

This was dessert for Father's Day for years. When we moved and it was just the two of us I kinda stopped making it. Now I want it - think I'll make a small pie of it soon.
August is peach season in MN and Ontario. We wait for peaches to make this pie. It has been a family tradition since before I was born. Yes, it is rich (but very good for breakfast the next day). I don't normally eat sweets, but I eat this.

If it doesn't go as planned, your guests will have something to remember. And so will the both of you. How many weddings have you been to that were so very different from any other and stands out in your mind?

We definitely need to start a thread called, "The Wedding." I am getting so excited. You would think it was one of my own kids.

Plus, if you don't let on that it's an "oops" they'll tell you they've "never seen it done that way" and that your way (AKA "the oops:) was "sooooo very special and different". Meanwhile, they never knew you were frantically, quietly signaling the priest during the consecration that he forgot something during the exchange of vows ...

My most favorite parts of my first wedding, were the mis-spelling of the groom's name on the cake and the Mother in law letting out a big snore during the ceremony...

Not baking anything today but did make a pate brisee in anticipation of baking a blueberry pie tomorrow and the pastry has to chill overnight.

Still not too motivated because I'm hopelessly stuck in "vacation mode." Yeah!!!!

Keeping with tradition I made a apple crisp today
during the typhoon.
Already made it 4 times this year and still early in the season.
