Chef Nikki Shaw: Anyone who knows me knows that I'm constantly in search of great food, fun, and adventure!

The L.A. Lakers' play-off games have been a star-studded celebrity playground. Not least among them, Jack Nicholson tries to get to every home game -- he's definitely the Lakers' biggest fan. I can usually find Jack nibbling at the buffet in the plush family room at the Staples Center. The room gives the team's family members a place to relax (and a place for the kids to run wild). Jack is our "honorary family member," strolling through the room sipping on his pre-game beer.

As we cruised the buffet line together, I asked Jack what his favorite dish was. Looking over the top of his sunglasses, he said, "I love see-food: any food I see, I love!" While we were both cracking up, I said, "So you're a seafood lover?" He said, "Ahhh, seafood is alright, but my favorite is Stuffed Cabbage and Peach Pie." He's my kind of guy! I've loved Jack since "The Shining" and "One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest." I was just a child, but I was very intrigued by those clever movie titles.

"NIK TIP": For those of us ladies who are NOT sports fans, enjoy the big games with your guy sometimes. Then have a little fun. I'm sure he would love to celebrate the victory with his "private cheerleader"!

In this bitter economy, I'll show you how to make life sweet right at home. Here's a great recipe for an easy peach pie that's sure to become a summer favorite!


2 store-bought, refrigerated pie shells
¼ cup brown sugar
¼ cup white sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
¼ teaspoon nutmeg
pinch salt
4 cups canned sliced peaches, drained
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 tablespoons butter, cut into small pieces

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll piecrust into a pie pan or use a ready-made pie shell. With a fork, poke holes all over the crust. Bake crust for 10 minutes.

2. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, & salt. In a large bowl, combine peaches, lemon juice, & vanilla. Stir the peach mixture well & pour it into the half-baked pie shell. Sprinkle the sugar mixture evenly over the peaches. Place the pieces of butter evenly over the peaches.

3. Cover the pie with the top crust. Seal the edges with a fork or fingertips. With a sharp knife, cut four 2-inch slits in the top crust, to allow the steam to escape. Cover the edges of the piecrust with foil to prevent burning. Place the pie on a cookie sheet & bake for 45-50 minutes.
