Excuse me while I go buy more peaches so I can make seconds and thirds . . . . This Single Serving Peach Crisp is BOMB. It satisfies any dessert craving and you’re not tempted to eat the whole pan. It took make maybe 5 min to whip up and then I was immediately drooling as the fragrant smells of peaches, cinnamon and coconut filled my studio. It’s low in sugar, oil and butter free and just plain good. Can’t wait to try this with apples, maybe pears, and whatever else floats my fancy.

The Best White Wine Sangria

White Peach & Lemon Sangria

Summertime means sangria time. I made this on a pure whim with my friend, Steph. It was a hot Saturday night, and we’re like what sounds cool and refreshing? Sangria does obviously. We made the sans vodka and the chardonnay version, but both combinations have been quite delicious. The fresh fruit is always a fun plus, and I played with citrus and stone fruit. The added bonus? You can eat the boozy peaches slices (because let’s assume you don’t want to lemon slice to munch on). Happy Thirsty Thursday! Have fun celebrating with White Peach & Lemon Sangria.

The Perfect Breakfast: Strawberry Rhubarb Parfait

Zesty Strawberry Rhubarb Compote Parfait

It’s rhubarb season, strawberry season AND hot summer days season. Normally I have the luxury of enjoying fresh rhubarb back home in Maine — straight out of the garden. Thank God Whole Foods in Boston delivered; you can buy individual stalks when in season. My mom and I originally found this strawberry-rhubarb compote recipe from Skinny Taste a couple summers ago. The tartness of the rhubarb is perfectly balanced with sweet and juicy strawberries to make a sauce. This time, I added in lemon zest and a juicy ripe peach. Layer over your favorite yogurt and granola for a Zesty Strawberry Rhubarb Compote Parfait — the perfect on-the-go breakfast! (Or hey — even dessert.)
