We’re days away from Thanksgiving here in Canada, which only means one thing for me – pie! Year after year, I am in charge of the pie for Thanksgiving dinner, which if you’ve followed along for any amount of time, probably won’t come as a surprise. A quick search of the word ‘pie’ on the blog brings up many options – this pumpkin pie with a twist and the prettiest peach pie, are probably two of my favorites. And while I love all things pumpkin at this time of year, inspired by my peach pie, I decided to go with a Maple Bourbon Apple Rose Pie for this years Thanksgiving dinner. Try saying that three times fast!
Fall’s sudden and somewhat abrupt appearance has me craving all things warm and cozy. And while it’s the season of pumpkin and spices, I’m mixing things up with a lemon and ginger mezcal cocktail.
Lemons may not be the first ingredients to come to mind for a fall inspired cocktail, but they offer a freshness that pairs perfectly with the heat of ginger and smokiness of Mezcal. Although both tequila and mezcal come from the agave plant, the flavour profile is distinctly different.
Mondays that feel like Sundays are meant for baking. And while there’s a glimmer of fall’s crispness in the air, it still feels like summer around here. So to celebrate Labour Day I decided to make the prettiest peach pie, if I do say so myself!
Due to a late start to the Okanagan growing season this year, there is an abundance of fresh, juicy peaches. Hot temps and peaches galore, make this pie totally seasonally appropriate!
