Lemon Cream Cheese Cookies | Peaches Please

I’ll always wonder why my school never offered (or required) a home economics class. We took shop class as part of the standard curriculum and were later offered electives such as architecture, theater, dance, ceramics, photography, studio art, jazz band, choir etc. But where was the class that taught you how to sew back on that errant button or boil water for pasta? Don’t get me wrong, we were writing papers in middle school. I was well prepared for the academics of college. I spent an enormous amount of time in the theater and took shop multiple times; I can wield an electric drill with the best of them. But so many people I knew went to college never having

Cranberry Galettes | Peaches Please

Alright, Team. Halloween is over, the leaves are actually changing in Georgia and it’s November…That’s right. It’s Thanksgiving season. Game on. I thought I’d get the turkey day ball rolling with my these cranberry galettes, because, well, I like baking. I also really like baking with cranberries. I think it’s something about how vibrant cranberries are. I mean, the color alone is just gorgeous. Then there’s the flavor – super tart with a hint of bitterness.

Chocolate Stout Cake with Swiss Meringue Buttercream | Peaches Please

Yep. It’s a Halloween mummy cake, a pun and a Doctor Who joke all in one. You have no idea how happy that makes me.  It’s also a damn tasty piece of deliciousness with a light, tender chocolate stout cake within and a silky, fluffy swiss meringue buttercream without. What flavor is the buttercream? Well, mostly vanilla, but with a hint of rum and grand marnier. Basically, this cake is a whole bevy of good things. And don’t let the mummy decorations mislead you, this cake is good at any time of year. It’s just that it’s Halloween and I felt like jumping on the celebration bandwagon. Okay, that’s a lie. Really this post is about a little television show

Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Meringue Cookies | Peaches Please http://peachesplease.com/pumpkin-meringue-cookies/ ‎

I’m a little obsessed with pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. Ever since that day in law school when I stumbled across a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie in the Briarcliff Whole Foods I’ve craved them. And I don’t mean that random craving you have once in a while. I always wanted those cookies. Always. I used to buy them in bulk during the holidays and freeze them so I could have them  year round. I’m not kidding. This naturally leads to the impulse to bake with pumpkin and chocolate chips which, while held in check most of the year, I unleash in the fall. I’m not sure why it occurred to me to try making a pumpkin meringue cookie, but I sure
