My Friend Frenchie

How do I know Marie Christine? A stroke of blessed luck through other dear friends who introduced us years ago. I was immediately taken with Marie Christine's talents in the kitchen and with simple design and decor. Having been to her homes, including a remote cabin in the mountains of Colorado, I felt like I'd just stepped into a cozy intimate mini French chateau! Marie Christine is exceptionally adept in the kitchen and with food. And, on top of that, she's a world class athlete, all dripping wet about one hundred pounds of her. Truly inspirational in so many ways. We all have shared so many pretty amazing experiences over the years. From 10th Mountain Division Hut snowshoeing and camping in the dead of winter, camping, and hiking to more shared dinner parties than I can count, memories always seem to focus on food. Here's just one dessert that I recently made during the peach season in the Summer when these photos were shot. It's a peach custard pie with only five ingredients that got the French seal of approval from my dear friend!
