Peach Galette #HungerStrike #GuestPost


Peach_Galette (4)

As summer waned, I knew I had to pull one more peach dessert out of my hat. Galettes are incredibly easy to create… they have all the flavors and textures of a pie, but without the hassle of working with a double crust. The last of two of my Michigan Red Haven peaches were peeled and sliced for this luscious Peach Galette…and soon it will be time to make an apple version. I peeled my peaches, but leaving the skin on will make an even more beautiful presentation…it’s all personal preference. You know you’ve had an idyllic childhood when the worst nightmare of your young life was when your mom left the peels on the apples for one of her pies.

When my sweet friend, Dionne, of Try Anything Once Culinary, approached me about doing a guest post for the Hunger Strike, I didn’t hesitate for one second. Even though I’ve broached this subject on my blog before, I still find it appalling that children in this country full of riches go to bed hungry. This week, Dionne is eating only what is provided for breakfast and lunch for those under privileged students who qualify for the school lunch programs. And I am one of her avid fans.

Please go visit Dionne this week, see all the marvelous guest posters she has cheering her on, check out the recipes, and offer your support. You’ll find my peach galette recipe there today.

Here is some information about the hunger strike via Dionne’s blog:

  • No More Hungry Nights was created to raise food donations for people who are food insecure.
  • We connect with leaders in the community with requests for families that truly need this support.
  • The Hunger Strike is designed to raise awareness about food insecurity in our own cities where we might least expect it.
  • The Hunger Strike was also designed to put hunger into perspective. It has happened or can happen to me or you.
  • Together we can help people receive temporary donations, job leads, job training and education to end hunger.
  • Something as simple as sharing on social media can make a huge difference.



  1. Gorgeous galette, Liz! And such a worthy cause! I am headed over to Dionne’s to lend support.

  2. Isn’t it amazing that people in our country go hungry everyday while we pay farmers not to produce food? What a wonderful cause!

  3. I’m really going to miss peaches. They are one of my favorite fruits. Your galette looks beautiful Liz. The other night I was watching the news and saw where a local church was sending an unbelievable amount of food overseas to help children. And while I commend their efforts, I really wish that they would focus on the hungry childreden in our country as well.

  4. Galettes have been on my list of desserts to make for SO long and I still haven’t done it!! I don’t know why. I feel like they’re so pretty that I want to save it for a special occasion. Yours is gorgeous, Liz!

  5. Such a gorgeous galette, I am going to be sad when peaches are gone for good!

  6. I love galettes! Ma thinks they are neat, the boys would eye them suspiciously:@)
