I mentioned yesterday that it's finally peach season in Oregon, and it's the absolute best! I am completely in love with fresh peaches, and all of the delicious things I can make with them. Yesterday I shared a post with a list of some of my favorite peach recipes, and these peach crumb bars are another perennial favorite at my house. They're easy to make (the hardest part is peeling the peaches) and they taste absolutely amazing!

These peach crumb bars have two layers of buttery sweet crumb, with juicy fresh peaches in between. The recipe makes a big batch, so they're perfect for bringing to a potluck (or enjoying all by yourself after the kids are finally in bed for the night and you actually get to sit down for the first time that day, not that I can relate or anything...). I think they're best made with fresh peaches, but if you're in a pinch you could definitely substitute drained canned peaches. During the winter I often make these peach crumb bars with home-canned peaches, and the taste brings back all of the warm memories of summer!

I would recommend refrigerating the leftovers, if there are any, and I actually think they're really tasty when they're cold. My husband likes to warm them up and eat them with a scoop of ice cream on top. I mean, they are so delicious you really can't go wrong either way! 
Peach Crumb Bars

for the bars:
3 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup cold butter
1 egg, lightly beaten

for the filling:
5 cups peaches, peeled and diced (about 7 peaches)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preheat the oven to 375. Line a 9 x 13 pan with parchment or spray with cooking spray. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or two forks, then mix in the egg to form a crumbly dough. Press half of the dough into the prepared pan.

To make the filling, toss the peaches with the lemon juice. Whisk together the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg, then toss with the peach mixture. Spread the peaches over the dough in the pan, the crumble the remaining dough over the top, covering the peaches evenly. Bake 45 minutes, or until light golden brown. Let cool before cutting into squares.

Hi friends! I'm continuing my week of delicious waffle recipes with these lovely honey cornbread waffles. They're easy and simple to make, using ingredients I always have on hand, and they taste totally delicious. They're wonderful as is (with maybe a little butter and syrup) for breakfast, but they also make a fun and unique side for chili or soups. They're crisp on the outside, light and fluffy in the middle, and all-around fantastic!

I used this mini honeycomb waffle maker to make mine, but you can definitely make these in a standard waffle maker or Belgian waffle maker. The batter is so simple and quick to mix together, and only takes a few minutes to make. If you're using a mini waffle maker, it helps to have more than one waffle maker to speed things up. This recipe makes a ton (I think I ended up with a little over three dozen mini waffles!) so you can definitely cut it in half if you don't need quite so many. The mini waffles freeze well and are easy to reheat in the toaster, so they're great for making ahead of time and stocking the freezer. These honey cornbread waffles are a delicious and fun way to add some variety to breakfast time!

Honey Cornbread Waffles

1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup cornmeal
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups buttermilk
2 eggs
1/4 cup honey
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a small bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, eggs, honey, canola oil, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until just combined (a few small lumps are okay). Let the batter rest for five minutes. Preheat the waffle iron. Cook the waffles according to your waffle maker's directions. (For my mini waffle maker, 1/4 cup of batter cooked for 3-4 minutes was perfect.)
