August’s Recipe ReDux theme is A Vacation-Inspired Recipe: Start unpacking your favorite vacation memories. Think about a trip you took state-side or internationally and create a healthy recipe from an unforgettable meal you enjoyed. Or, create a recipe from a native ingredient you saw or tasted on your travels.

When I was 11, I went to Washington, D.C. and ate a pie that changed my life.

It had to be the right pie at the right time. I’m not, generally speaking, a pie person. It’s not like I’ll turn pie down when it’s offered, but it’s not my first choice for a dessert. And I was never without wonderful food as a kid: my mama was (and is) an excellent baker, and she was constantly making us something delicious.

What, then, was so outstanding about this pie? It was the first time I experienced the absolutely gorgeous combination of peaches and blueberries, and I fell completely in love.

When I was a bit older and wanted to recreate the magic, I chose not to bake a pie– it’s not my first choice when I’m making a dessert, either. Luckily, the peach-blueberry combination works beautifully in a dessert I’m crazy about, and so this peach blueberry crisp has become a special favorite for my family and me.

Of course, the pie wasn’t the only great thing about that vacation– I’ve always been a giant history nerd, and seeing the Capitol and the White House and visiting the Smithsonian totally made my geeky summer– but the pie was certainly a stand-out. 🙂

    I’m not sure I’ve ever tried combining peach & blueberry – sounds like a great combo. This must have been some pie for you to remember =) And I’m glad I’m not the only “geek”. I went to D.C. for the first time a couple of years ago and loved seeing the White House, I was super duper lucky as I knew someone working there and got a special tour of the West Wing.
    Looking forward to trying this crumble, Courtney – I’m with you, not much of a pie person. I’m down with a good crisp though =)
    Thanks for sharing at Healthy Vegan Fridays – I’m pinning & sharing. I hope you’re having a great weekend.
