I love peaches.

Love ’em.

And any time I can find a dessert that showcases them I’m always game. I’ve said before and I’ll say it again that one of my very favourite summer experiences is the chance to eat a sun-warmed peach and have all those sweet juices running down your hand.

It’s truly one of nature’s lovely gifts.

And to be able to bake with such a beautiful fruit is yet another gift that always makes me so happy.


I hope you have a tremendous week and I hope this Peach and Almond Tart from the July 2007 issue of Olive magazine helps you along the way!


Note: This is a brilliant recipe! It’s been in my magazine box for so long so I’m glad that I finally gave it a go for Magazine Mondays. You can find the recipe here. I used Ontario ice wine to cook my peaches and I can’t tell you how delicious it was. This is definitely a keeper!

Check out who else has been putting those magazine recipes to good use: Over at Retorte, Wandering Coyote has been making some delicious Blueberry Corn Bread and Natashya of Living in the Kitchen with Puppies made a drink that I need to have right now!
