Peach Blueberry Pie with Bourbon

Today, I'm sharing my favorite pie, with a boozy new twist!  Sweet peaches laced with plump and juicy blueberries, surrounded by an old-fashioned filling rounded out with Jim Beam Kentucky Bourbon...A traditional summer pie made more modern thanks to Mr. Beam!

I love this pie.  Love with a capital L.  

I have made this pie annually for at least 10 years.  And, in case you haven't figured this out: I have a weakness for pie.  Pie in any way, shape or form.  And, yes, there was ICE CREAM involved this time, too...  

And, yes, that ice cream was served with my favorite kind of pie: Breakfast Pie.  You've met our breakfast pies many, many times.  Why expect anything different? :)

You will LOVE this pie.

Seriously good.  Seriously decadent.  Seriously swoon-worthy.  All, in one easy pie!

Please don't be fooled, my friends.  Yes, this is a summer pie.  IMO, probably best made with fresh fruit.  But, I wouldn't shy away from making this using frozen fruit.  Nothing wrong with a little bit of summer to round out your fall pie experiences.  Go ahead.  It's all good!

I know I won't be shy...*WINK*

Celebrate Placer GROWN Week with Bake It With Booze (and a GIVEAWAY)!

Happy Friday! And Happy Fall! What a week it's been. This is Jacqueline, by the way. Remember me? It's been a terribly long time since I've posted here. And, I'm not gonna lie to ya - I'm typing this up with my second glass of wine next to me, so things could get interesting. No recipe today (though I made pumpkin doughnut holes for you and I promise to get them up soon!), but I do have some exciting things to share with you. And did I mention, a giveaway??

I'll skip over the adventures in hazardous waste regulation, because who wants to read about that on a Friday night? Not I - that's why I'm on Blogger with you guys and not reading (more) reports on environmental justice and toxics in consumer products. Let me tell you about the highlight of my week: on Tuesday, I took the day off work, kidnapped my dear friend Kristin, and ventured into the beautiful rolling hills of Placer County (which, I am blessed to say, is basically my back yard!). It was an adventure! At one point, I took a wrong turn and ended up popping my tiny little SUV into 4WD and basically off-roading through blackberry brambles and over boulders. Just a little bit.

I got to spend the afternoon at Sinclair Family Farm, which produces naturally raised beef, lamb, chicken, pork, cage free eggs, and even honey. I enjoyed a delicious, homemade, locally-sourced lunch with several other local foodie bloggers, and Placer GROWN (the kind sponsor of our GIVEAWAY) really showed us a good time!
