Nectarine Sourdough Coffee Cake

Each summer my exercise routine consists of repeatedly running frantically out of my kitchen to the backyard, flapping my arms and yelling “ch ch ch ch” to scare away the scrub jays from my nectarine tree.  When I’m tired, I make the boys do it.

Plum Cobbler

Repeat after me: a cobbler is not the same as a crisp, and neither are the same as a crumble. Or a buckle, a pandowdy, a betty, or a puzzle. Slump, maybe, but only the cobbler. Don’t even get me started on grunts. Who came up with these names??

Whole Wheat Apricot Waffles

I have come to the sad realization that my apricot trees only want to bear fruit every other year, and the same with my mom’s. Do they have the courtesy of producing in opposite years of each other so we can always have fresh apricots? Of course not, so rude.

Stone Fruit Oven Pancake

With summer officially here, the stone fruit season is now seriously underway.  Apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums, and all the hybrids in between, are dropping off trees and showing up in markets.  Gobble them up now, they don’t last long!
