I have typically fixed up a protein smoothie for breakfast. They are quick, easy and packed with good stuff. This peach cobbler smoothie has become one of our most popular smoothie recipes. I love it every morning! It is my go-to and I'm full until lunch. Pour it in a cup, drop the kids to school, and off to errands. The Peaches I always love to use peaches that are extra sweet so that my flavor is incredible. If you can during peach season buy extra wash and slice, then freeze in a single . . .
Peaches are one of the best fruits of summer, so we totally thought they deserved their own week. We've loved infusing them with earthy, basil flavors, sweet and spicy, refreshing and minty, chocolate and caramel, deep-fried, and of course, right off the tree! Try one of our new recipes this week, or any of our classics. Millions of peaches, peaches for me... Peach Frozen Custard and Brownies with Salted Dark Caramel Sauce Peach, Ricotta, and Basil Crostini Sweet and Spicy Peach and . . .
All I can say about this grilled peach salad is COME ON!!! This is so good that you won't even believe it!!! When peach season rolls around I am buying them left and right. We love peaches at our house, so I knew that this salad would become a staple. The Dressing First lets talk about the dressing. A fresh basil vinaigrette that is BURSTING with freshness. I whipped this up in my blender and boy was it the finishing touch to this salad. It added a clean, herbal tang - that you just . . .
Dinner in 10 minutes?! Yes please! This tasty dish will be on your table before it is even set! I love shrimp, and I love summertime grilling. Add some juicy fresh peaches and you pretty much have heaven on a platter. My love of seafood started when I was a kid. I have really fond memories of camping with my family. My dad would get up early to go fishing and he would catch our dinner. We feasted on rainbow trout grilled over the camp fire during those trips. Since then I haven't been . . .
Crostini is one of my favorite appetizers. Classic bruschetta, mediterranean bruschetta, and now peach, ricotta, and basil crostini. Such an easy app to whip up, and hellooooo summer! Homemade ricotta really makes the dish. You boil milk and cream, add lemon juice, and let it strain for a couple of hours. That's IT! Thick and creamy, fresh ricotta pairs perfectly on the buttered, grilled toasts! Top with a juicy peach (or nectarine) slice, earthy basil, and a fruity balsamic glaze . . .
Movin' to the country, gonna eat a lot of peaches. Movin' to the country, gonna eat me a lot of peaches... We're probably older than some of you, which means some of you don't know why I'm moving to the country and am gonna eat a lot peaches. It's a song! I was in 5th grade, and all the boys were singing it (that, and doing that wrist-flick thing...and wearing puka shell necklaces and sambas) and I still love it to this day! Welcome to Peach Week! My sister-in-law is from Georgia, and she . . .
One of my favorite things about summer is the juicy, fresh produce. Especially from our farmer's market. ESPECIALLY those of the sugary, sweet variety. Make your simple syrup with juice, lime juice, and sugar. Sometimes I go a little overboard and buy a ton of my favorite fruit, nectarines and peaches, so the other day I busted out a cobbler for a friend I took dinner to (while I ooh'ed and ahh'ed at her new, precious little bebe). Smoothies are always wonderful with ripe fruit, but I . . .
Peach soup- who would have thought? The sweet simplicity of this appetizer adds a nice charm to your dinner. Peaches are such a mild delicious fruit most people enjoy them, making it just the right pre-course to your dinner. I say pre-course because wouldn't serve this as a main dish, as it very light. That it also what makes it so refreshing. Use Canned or Fresh This recipe calls for canned peaches but if fresh peaches are in season, I highly recommend! Give them a little sauté with some . . .
Ever since I was a kid I have loved fruit leather, fruit roll ups, fruit by the foot, and fruit snacks. So when I learned I could make my own with 2 or 3 ingredients I was pretty darn excited. Skip all of the added sugars and preservatives and treat your kids to something natural and delicious with this peach and raspberry fruit leather recipe. Making Homemade Raspberry Fruit Leather This stuff doesn't last long in our house. My kids eat it up so fast and I don't feel . . .
This post was inspired by a dinner at Meers Store and Restaurant my husband and I had while we were on rotations in Lawton, Oklahoma. It was recommended to us by one of our good friends who did a rotation there who happens to be a vegetarian. Don't ask. This place was straight up in the middle of nowhere, they raise their own Texas Longhorns for their famous burgers (which I thought were good, but I've had better), the diners consist of out-of-towners driving through, hunters decked out in camo . . .
Every time I walk into the grocery store during the summer months I can't get enough of that amazing aroma of fresh peaches! I can't help but buy some EVERY time! I love those sweet juicy peaches in the summer! Such a treat! After one of my peach shopping sprees I got this idea that I should whip up some peach lemonade! We Love Lemonade Lemonade is kind of a favorite around here! Check out our classic lemonade and our strawberry lemonade for a little more lemonade . . .
My Mom made us this cobbler as kids. It was always a special treat! This dessert isn't pretty, it doesn't make for a beautiful food photo...but your mouth will be oh so happy when you spoon it in! This dessert is rustic, gooey, and delicious. One of the things I love about this dessert is that it is simple, and you can customize it to fit the season. This dessert is perfect year round! Try apple cobbler in the fall, peach cobbler in the summer, cherry cobbler in the winter...even . . .
