    Oh that Kuchen looks delicious!…I would love the recipe…hint hint..;o)

    Hope you have a great weekend too! Can’t wait to hear about what you guys are going to plant in your garden.

    I had a garden plot last year, in a community garden. It didn’t really work out, mainly because the plot is a 10 minute bike ride away, and I’m lazy so I never felt like going. But if I hadn’t been so lazy, it would have been great! We had mint growing like crazy, which was neat but kind of useless. I mean really, how many things take fresh mint? Anyway, congrats on the plot – I’m sure you’ll do better than I did!

    Hi Aurora’s Mom 🙂 How have you been doing? Guess what? Someone else already has the recipe online so I can save on typing. LOL Here’s the LINK. For the crust, the updated version of Vittles says you can use all pastry flour or use half pastry flour, half regular flour (which is what I did). I think you’ll like it. It’s pretty easy to make too.

    I’ll be blogging more about our garden next week. I’m going to swing by the community garden this weekend and get a pic of the plot in the “before” state. I’m so happy I won’t have to be without a garden this summer 🙂

    “Went to a Garden Party…” (love that tune) That’s great nooz about you gettin’ to grow some stuff with yer own community garden plot, Emmy. Very cool! i know you’ll make it SHINE and grow beautifully!

    The kuchen makes me want to go, “kuchy, kuchy koo” like to a baby… it looks sweet and delicious! Tell yer mom “Don’t Be Cruel” in your best Elvis impersonation next time. It may make her being far from the kuchen (and YOU!) a little less painful… Soy sour cream? Don’t know if i’ve ever seen that. Cool that it exists!

    There are so many great places to bike and hike and run and romp and play out in your part of the world… just have to wait for things to warm up a bit. I remember playing the waiting game for that! Some years were longer than others!! 🙂

    A Chet Baker memoir?! Who even knew that existed. Happy reading, Emmy!

    Hey, bloggine about the Kuchen is even crueler (is that a word?) because we get to SEE what we’re missing! I’m drooling here.

    Glad to see you are going to have a garden this season! Last year, Daiku and I made a little garden for our house to test out our soil and climate and see what it was like. I loved growing veggies (uh, the watermelon didn’t quite work out…). This year, we might not get to garden, though, since we might be gone at the beginning of the summer. We’ll see.

    Oh, and I love Chet Baker. Good score!

    Mmmmm kuchen looks marvelous. And I envy you your garden! I can’t wait until we move to a place where I can mark out my own plot and grow some of our own veggies and herbs 🙂

    Hi, Emmy! The peach kuchen looks perfect! Were you eating it and making yummy noises when you called your mom? Great news about the CSA and having your very own summer veggies.

    The weather has been weird in Texas too. We had the coldest Easter ever this year – 35 degrees. Last year we had the hottest ever – 95!

    Peach kuchen – yum! It looks great — how funny that you taunt your mom. I love it!

    $25 for a garden plot is a steal. You’ll definitely save more than that growing your own veggies. How fortunate that you just got a book on gardening in Illinois — that will come in handy for you.
