Summer Lovin’ Peaches!

Summer Lovin’ Peaches!

Peaches are now and have always been my favorite fruit.  There is nothing better than biting into a fresh in season juicy peach to take away the summer blues (or to help cool you off in this sweltering inferno we call Houston!)  Even thought this seems more like a fall dish, I love to make it in the summer when the peaches & figs are in season.  So yummy!  And yes I have to admit to having this for breakfast this morning.  How could I resist something so lovely!?  Besides, I do have my protein, fat, and carbohydrate mix as

Welcome to the best days of your life! Creation of the week: Peppery basil peach ice cream! Yes pepper! It’s very subtle and I think I’ll actually add a bit more next time.
