Peach Pie. I mean AMAZING peach pie

This peach pie is the best you’ll ever have. The recipe is from the Beat This! cookbook by Ann Hodgman.
Anybody who is serious about eating yummy food must have this cookbook!

I’ve tweaked the recipe a tiny bit, but this is real close to Hodgman’s.

preheat oven 375 degrees


1 1/2 cups flour
1/4 tsp salt
1 1/2 sticks butter
3 tablsp cold water

mix salt into flour, cut butter into flour, sprinkle water, form in ball, chill for 1/2 hour

bake crust at 375 till done, about 20 min

turn oven down to 350

filling (make while crust is baking)

3 bags frozen peaches (my change — she calls for 4 sliced fresh peaches. Sounds great! but I promise you the frozen work better every time and save SO MUCH FRKN TIME that once you use frozen you will never go back…

1 cup brown sugar
1/3 cup flour
pinch salt
butter (she says 1/4 cup but I use anywhere from 1/2 a cube to a whole cube, depending on my mood)

mix dry ingreds, melt butter/ combine all — it will be a gooey pasty glob. Keep peaches separate.

layer peaches/brown sugar mix and bake for 50 min at 350

eat while still warm. Fabu for breakfast next day (if there’s any left)

Hey, Thanks For Your World!

Someone left a message on my LK Rigel page here at Fair Maison the other day that has freaked me out.

Nice work i have to say, even inspired me to do a short story off of that idea. Thanks!

Whoa, there pardner! That’s my world you’re helping yourself to. I’m not even established yet, and someone’s fanficking me?

Now, of course ideas are not intellectual property, but world’s are. I found Eric’s page at Smashword’s, and what do you know? He’s published an entire book over there — has it for sale for $5.99 based on “David Drake’s Hammer’s Slammers Universe.”

He downloaded my free first chapter and left a 5 star review. It’s all too weird.

I wrote this letter:

Hi Eric,

I saw your comment on Fair Maison and checked out your page at Smashwords. Thanks so much for the 5-star review of my first chapter of Space Junque. I hope to have the whole thing out in about a month.

You mentioned writing a short story off the world of Space Junque, and I hope you won’t do that. This is my world I am creating for my work.

It looks like you’re a good writer. I hope you’ll put your efforts into creating a world that is yours.

I appreciate your enjoyment of my work, but I explicitly do not give you permission to use it in yours.

I wish you much success in creating worlds that your readers will enjoy — and I hope to be one of them,

Most sincerely,
LK Rigel

Any thoughts? Ideas?

wow… I pasted the first few pages of Space Junque into this tool, and it decided that —

turns out the “I write like” website is likely a scam trying to lure writers to a vanity press.
