  • Pennsylvania Peaches are in!

    This is it people. If you are unfamiliar with Pennsylvania peaches, I suggest you stop by the market this weekend and check them out. Yeah, I know what you are thinking. Why would I care about Pennsylvania peaches, I only like "insert state name here". Well, if you haven't tried these, it's about time you do.  Not only are they beautiful peaches, but they are sweet and juicy.

    But don't take my word for it. Come by and see us this weekend and find out why we are going gaga over these Pennsylvania peaches!

    In case you need some inspiration, I've gather some favorite recipes from other bloggers:

  • Back from Vacation and Strawberry Shortcakes

    Yes, we are back from vacation.  Our market is now open Tuesday through Sunday from 9 am to 6 pm.  We are still closed on Mondays. For a while now, Piper has been asking me to make strawberry shortcake.  And although she knows it is not strawberry season and we don't have it at the market, she was relentless about it. So I gave in.

    making strawberry shortcakeCould you say no to that face? I couldn't. Please note, this is not our Parkesdale recipe.  The recipe we used to make it came from her Strawberry Shortcake game app on her mini ipad.

    The recipe is straight forward. Lots of easy ingredients you should have in your pantry already: milk, flour, eggs, sugar and butter.  And yes, since it was her idea, I made her do all the hard work. ;)

    After all the ingredients were mixed and the baking was done, the fun began.  Let me tell you, cutting the cake in two was probably the most stressful thing for me in the kitchen ever! She watched me do it while I prayed to God it wouldn't brake!

    And now for the fun part. Once your shortcake is baked and cut in half, you can start playing with the whipped cream.  We used Reddi Whip, but I'm sure you can make your own too.  Once you've added a layer of whipped cream, start placing your strawberries.

    This is what happens when you let a 6 year old in the kitchen.  Don't you love it? :)

    Once you've finished adding a layer of strawberries, go ahead and repeat with the other half of the shortcake.
