Barbara's End of Summer No Bake Fresh Peach Pie

Again, Barbara McKay has just the right answer for a perfect late summer dessert.  It's the end of the summer and the end of our peach season. So she chose a delicious recipe using fresh peaches.  Her thoughtful no bake fresh peach pie doesn't even require us to turn on the oven and further add to the heat in our kitchen.   It's light and very refreshing to enjoy after a meal or just as a snack.

Barbara, an advisor to the magazine, continues to impress with her high energy level and always gives us the best recipes for entertaining or for just dining alone.   That's why her lifestyle book is still flying off the shelves and tables at book signings and why WBTV still asks her to come back and guest host their midday show occasionally.  If you haven't already picked up a copy of her book, you'll want to purchase a copy of Coming Home: Recipes and Reflections from a Life in the Spotlight from Amazon or from her website  It's also perfect for sharing as a gift for any occasion. 

In addition to preparing dishes from her book that you can share with your family and friends, you'll be inspired while reading about Barbara's wonderful life of travel and her 29 year career at WBTV while raising her children.
