The summer has flown by and I sadly have not made it one campfire or fire-pit all season! While truthfully my desire to sit fireside has been damped by all the smoke in the air from the devastating BC fires, I’ve sure missed enjoying a s’more or two! So, I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands this week with a S’mores Pie – no fire necessary. Well, no open fires that is, you’ll need a kitchen torch to flame the meringue 😉
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!
In keeping with the Moroccan theme of the week, (click here to read about my Moroccan inspired outdoor movie night), today’s recipe pays homage to the French influence in Moroccan cooking. Despite the short lived colonization of Morocco, France’s influence on the country’s food remains. And this Apricot Lavender Cake is quintessentially French in flavour.
