So about this peach crisp.

I would like for you to know that it tastes really really good. Okay, it tasted good. It’s all gone now.

And I would also like for you to know that I had some big elaborate plan to make a dual post with peach and apple crisp — and then my apple crisp was more like dry apples with crumbly grossness on top of it. Aaaand I served it to my family. And they may have eaten it — but I think they were just being nice. That or they weren’t quite sure what it was supposed to be so they didn’t have this big idea of having an apple crisp to eat.

So, it is a good thing the peach crisp turned out. Otherwise, I probably would have just hung my head in shame and gone outside to play with the donkeys (not joking).

I was extremely excited when I pulled my peaches out of the freezer on Sunday, and part of me wished I had frozen at least four more batches because now all of my peaches are gone. No more peaches for this girl until at least next July.

What a sad statement.

Can you believe I didn’t use any butter in this peach crisp? Don’t scoff at me, I love buttery flavors as much as the next person, but I was pretty curious as to how coconut oil would work in the crumble topping. Verdict? It worked well! Oh, and don’t even bother peeling your peaches. It takes too much time! Skins are good for you.

I learned a very valuable lesson in all of this. Sometimes recipes work (peach crisp), sometimes recipes don’t work (apple crisp), but your family will probably eat it anyways.

Question: Have you ever served anything to family or friends that wasn’t quite as delicious as you expected?
