I know that I have pushed the limit on fresh peach recipes this summer, but I just couldn't help myself!
For whatever reason, each crop, each variety and each peck of peaches that I picked up was sweeter and more wonderful than the last - it must have been a bumper crop this year!
I was heartbroken to hear that billions of bees and their hives were destroyed in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia and Florida last week when chemical spraying for Zika destroyed the bee colonies and hives totally - with no warning at all to the hive keepers. It will be scary to see what happens next year when it is time for pollination. Lord only knows if the bees will be able to come back from this travesty...
I may have saved the best for last - this buttery and golden cake is infused with fresh peach flavor and brown sugar wonderfulness!
Don't you just love an easy dinner that you can start in the morning, and throw on the grill or stovetop and have dinner ready in less than 30 minutes?
Everyone LOVES Chicken Fajitas here at home, and during the summertime when the peppers and tomatoes are fresh from the garden, I think we have these about every two weeks. Always a big hit!
Chipotle Lime Cream is just a wonderful twist on sour cream - chipotle chili powder, fresh cilantro and chives, and a splash of buttermilk and fresh lime juice makes for a great drizzle on top!
It's always a little bit sad when summer starts winding down - we always started school the Tuesday after Labor Day when I was a kid, so these mid-August start dates are just downright cruel!
Back to school shopping is done, crayons and markers packed in backpacks, and I'm starting to get back in the mindset of packing lunches again. Summers are just so much lazier and better!
We all ended up on the deck tonight, which is always a relaxing way to end the day and start the weekend.
Perfect time to whip up some summertime Peach Salsa! Fresh peaches add just a touch of sweetness to the mix!
