Peach Raspberry Jalapeno Pie

C came up with the pie idea (combo of ingredients) and I implemented the making/baking of it...
The longer its flavors meld, the better it tastes. That's a hot pie -- ice cream is a must for me!

Celebrating the 4th with Pie

my recent vintage find: painted milk glass cake (or pie!) stand

didn't quite seem like the 4th this year, for some reason.... (no fireworks?)
my yummy rhubarb pie helped us feel a little festive

Double Rainbow

we were thankful for the little bit of rain and beautiful double (almost triple!) rainbow Tuesday evening
