Peaches and Cream Popsicles

Cool down this August with slightly sweet and dreamy Peaches and Cream Popsicles! Sprinkle sliced peaches with sugar, letting them steep in the beautiful liquid. Strain the peaches and save the juices… then combine the juice with Greek yogurt and a few peaches to create these decadent popsicles!

Peach season is about to come to an end, and this makes me incredibly sad because peaches might be my all-time favorite fruit.

When I was a kid, I have distinct memories of slicing up peaches to put atop my cereal in the mornings. If you haven’t tried this, I totally recommend it! I also have memories of peach cobblers and crumbles and pies and all kinds of desserts.

Ever since I found peaches at my grocery this summer, I’ve been enjoying them by the dozen. Which has actually become kind of ridiculous because, well, no normal person should go through several pounds of peaches in a month. Right?

Whatever the case, I had a few peaches left in my last batch and decided to make popsicles using them. [Read more…]

Pizza is one of my favorite foods, and we’ve been making our own favorite pizza combos at home for years. I love throwing various ingredients on top of a pie and seeing how they turn out. I also love homemade pizza the night before any road race.

Unfortunately, it’s been so darn hot that we haven’t wanted to turn on the oven for any length of time.

The solution?

The dog days of summer are almost here, and I don’t know about y’all, but I am increasingly spending more and more time indoors because it’s just that hot outside.

Gone are the days of taking leisurely afternoon walks.

Gone are the days of gardening in the sunshine.

If you need me, chances are I’m hiding indoors.

M&M Cookies

These M&M Cookies are the perfect dessert! The miniature sugar cookies are sweet, fluffy and chock full of plain M&M's. @speckledpalate for @mycookingspot

A few weeks ago, I ended up with a ginormous bag of M&M’s at my house.

I was just minding my own business, doing my own thing, and then suddenly, these M&M’s were taking over. I, of course, was eating them like they were going out of style. You know, as one does.

Here’s the thing: When you have a party bag that has more M&M’s than you’ve ever seen in your entire life, it’s probably a good idea not to eat the entire thing in a week… or even a month. [Read more…]
