In our house my husband Tom usually makes the beef stew. It’s really nice that he likes to cook and he’s actually good at it. Stew is one of his favorite wintertime comfort foods. A tradition that started when the kids got to be teenagers, was that they got to pick what they had or what restaurant they went to for their birthdays. This carried over to Tom and me as well. This year, Tom decided he wanted to stay home, not go anywhere and he was planning to make stew and black raspberry pie. I decided to surprise him and make the stew for him, hoping that it meant his stringent standards, as he’s the pro stew-maker in our house. Side note: He did make the pie, a few days before, so I decided to make the Peach Cobbler as his birthday treat, per our daughter, Ashlie’s request. I put this in the crockpot, but if you wanted to cook on the stovetop, it would work just fine too! This smelled sooooooo good cooking. Hope you enjoy as much as we did.

Instructions
  1. Wash your produce and chop the celery, carrots, and onion. Cut the potatoes into bite-sized pieces and put into the bottom of your crockpot or pan.
  2. Add the flour, salt and pepper into a mixing bowl and add the stew meat and toss to coat the meat.
  3. In a large cast-iron skillet, heat the oil and add the garlic, cooking about a minute or so. Add the floured meat, along with the rest of the flour in the bowl. Let the meat cook until nice and browned on all sides. I found it works best if you don’t keep stirring it. Let it cook a few minutes and then turn, let it cook a few minutes, turn, until it’s all nicely brown.
  4. Add the meat on top of the vegetables in your pot.
  5. Turn the heat down, add the broth to the skillet along with the mustard, Worcestershire, tamari, sucanat, rosemary and thyme to the skillet, stirring to combine the brown bits in the skillet with all the other goodies until mixed and everything is dissolved off the bottom of the skillet.
  6. Pour this sauce over all the other goodies in the pot. It probably won’t cover everything, that’s okay.
  7. I cooked this on high for 4 hours or you could cook on low for 8 hours. If using the stovetop, medium-low, stirring occasionally for about 4 hours.
  8. Add more salt if needed, stir well and serve with your favorite sourdough bread!

Most might think of this only in the summer when peaches are ripe, and typically I would too, but….when you can get frozen organic peaches and it’s the week after New Year and bringing a touch of summer to the table is called for, well this is a favorite treat. My daughter, Ashlie, requested it, and so it became a hit for my husband, Tom’s birthday “cake.”

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Place butter in a 9x13 pan and melt in the oven.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the flour, half the sugar, baking powder and salt. Add the milk and stir until the dry ingredients are moist. Pour this batter over the butter and there is no need to stir it.
  4. In a medium saucepan, add the other half (1 cup) sugar, the peaches and the lemon juice and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour this over the batter and don’t stir. Top with fresh nutmeg or cinnamon.
  5. Bake for 40-45 minutes or it’s nicely golden. Serve immediately with ice cream if you like.
