peach crisp and other recommendations on the 4th of july





happy 4th to you!

before you fire up the grill and make hot dogs for your kids today,
don't because they are gross.  read this here article.


but if you need an easy dessert, try this one.  

fresh peaches are practically falling off the trees around here so i've been making this...

just mix together

2 T sugar
place in 8" pie tin

in a separate bowl combine with your hands or pastry cutter

1/2 c oats
1/4 c flour
1/4 c brown sugar

  2. What a great recipe, my Rascals love peaches.
    Hot dogs are completely gross aren't they! I know it already but I'm still going to go and read that article.
    Have a great day Janet.
    xo!

  5. Happy 4th to you too! This recipe sounds great; I might try with blueberries since I have a bunch from Costco. I hated hot dogs even before I became vegan... I can't stand the fake meat ones either. It's sooo hot here in the Midwest, we'll be eating light and cool.

    Thanks! Have a great day :)

  6. Hey there! I'll email you in a bit ... we have lots of house projects going on today ... but I wanted to wish you a happy 4th!
    I think I'll try this recipe today with fresh raspberries off my neighbors bush. It's growing through the fence, so I claim half of it. :)

  10. hi ajj!
    your second career as a fabulous food photographer is still astounding!
    not everyone can do it you know. makes me want to just reach through the
    screen and taste it!
    i love griller's prime from morning star... but not that fond of their links.
    do you personally have a favorite vegan brand of hot dog?

  11. OH MY. This is timely as I've been dreaming of my peach/blueberry crisp. I'm making it and I'll indulge by eating it for breakfast every morning until it's gone. Can't wait:) BTW, holding strong with my vegetarian lifestyle and I am loving it!

    BTW, LOVED Moonrise Kingdom. Wes has an amazing knack for quirky storytelling and fabulous cinematography-love his stuff:) Digging out Royal Tenenbaums for a weekend viewing-it's been too long! Have a fabulous 4th!

    2. I just saw moonrise kingdom yesterday and loved it!!! What a great quirky love story.

    3. I agree - Royal Tenebaums was his best. I wasn't enthralled with Moonrise Kingdom, maybe I was in a bad mood that day? Going to give it another try as I love all his films.

  12. Hmmm, looks delicious and sounds easy. Perfect! I've been using Earth Balance for about a month now and it is EXCELLENT. Regarding hot dogs...never liked 'em. I've been off meat and dairy for a month now and finding a plant-based diet to be very easy and delicious. I have tried Smart Dogs for a quick and easy lunch and I like 'em. My husband is going to BBQ hamburgers today and a gardein burger for me and I made potato salad for the meat-eaters plus mexican bean salad, fruit salad, and veggie pasta salad, all vegan-legal. I wonder why I thought eating this way would be hard?

  17. Happy 4th of July, my dear Juanita!!! Peaches off the tree? You know how to upset a woman who can't even grow lettuce this year, it's so damned damp the slugs get to it first!
    They look heavenly. Hot dogs are the devil's food, the smell of them is appalling, I don't even want to think about what horrors go in them).
    Have a fabulous day! xxxx

  18. Janet,

    Your photography makes everything look soooo good! Just happens peaches are on sale this week!

    I haven't bought hot dogs in years, but when I did it was only the more expensive ones. (not that any good ones really exist) My husband broke down yesterday at work because his boss brought hot dogs for an office luncheon since it was the 4th. He got a semi-migraine immediately after and this a.m. he said his stomach was bothering him. Guess he won't do that again!

  19. P.S. I hope veggie hot dogs are better than they used to be! I have some awful memories of eating some at a church picnic in the 60's. (my dad and step-mom were vegetarians) To this day I cannot bear the thought of trying one!

  20. I'll definitely give tofu dogs a try it's a very compelling case. Just wondering would you serve the crisp as a meal? i.e. in place of a hot dog? I know Drew and I would be all for it!

    Happy 4th!

  21. Thanks for explaining what earth balance is. Since I refuse to turn on the oven, I'm going to try making this on the grill in a throw-away aluminum pan which never gets tossed since I line it with foil. I've used it over and over. Saves my "nice" pans from blackening on the grill. BTW, went to college in Madison, Wis. and there was an Oscar Mayer processing plant there. The smell was so gross the company put "deodorizers" up around the plant's perimeter to kill the stench. Hot dogs are just scary.

  22. I can't stand hot dogs or those smaller ones, disgusting crap. The supermarket here keeps trying to give them to my kids at the deli everytime we go near it. I get really cross and tell them not to push that crap on my kids like drug dealers, they usually run away from me now!!! They are a bit like crab sticks, all processed beyond recognition. I am not vegan, or vegetarian but even we cattle farmers can't cop that rubbish.
    Love that recipe and can't wait til summer to give it a go. I'm glad you clarified the marg ingredient (I was going to ask cos here in oz I have never heard of it)

  23. I don't know how the conversation started last week at work but we were listing off what our "last meals" would be and peach cobbler was on my list for dessert. It's my favorite thing in the world.

    Who has a 1/8 measuring cup? Wouldn't 2 Tablespoons work or do I need to update my measuring cups?

  24. Thanks for sharing this recipe, it looks wonderful! We have lots of fresh fruit stands near us and we're moving from cherry season to peach season. Now I know what to do with all the delicious peaches we'll be buying!

  25. This recipe looks wonderful, Janet! I will definitely be giving it a try soon. :)

    I hope you and your family had a wonderful July 4th holiday!

  28. What would us vegans do without Earth Balance!
    I know this has to taste just like the real thing Janet.
    It looks amazing!
