These. If your ever scrambling to “take a dish or appetizer to share”. Or if you’re not feeling like cooking breakfast, lunch or dinner. Or if you’re just in the mood for sweet, salty, tart, savory. DO THESE, you guys. All the time, DO THESE. Continue reading
Well guys, we made it. Happy spring! Yay! You know what this means, right? Warmer days ahead, lots of grilling, playtime at the parks, more daylight, fresh produce starting to make it’s way, and….baby! WHOA BABY!
Any ideas or explanations as to how this pregnancy could possibly be going this quickly are completely welcomed, friends, because I am mind-blown at the whole deal. We are finally getting going on bedroom moving, bunking, storage room cleaning, baby gear inventory-ing…you know, all of that good stuff…we are in the home stretch! Which seems a bit crazy, actually a lot crazy, because I swear I just shared the news yesterday, didn’t I? My gosh we can’t wait to meet this little one…all four of us. Continue reading
Oh boy. So I’ve got this pretty amazing girlfriend. We are raising same-aged children together. She’s genuine and so caring. Our husbands totally click. We both love to work out. You know, all the good stuff…and it all just works so seamlessly. But heres the kicker: She, too, has a case of ADIDAF (All Day I Dream About Food-it’s a thing-I am living proof). She’s a fabulous cook and she may be the only human I know who loves to eat ALMOST as much as I do ;) Like, you know, the kind of friend who sends you snap shots of every course at the fantastic new restaurant she is eating at. The kind of friend that introduces you to rare and ridiculously awesome candy that you have never heard of and you basically faint out of pure delight. The kind of friend you are delighted to check out new restaurants with because you know she will appreciate all of it as much as you do. She’s a winner. In so many ways.
And you know what, when you are a food blogger these types of friends come in super handy. Not only is she incredibly supportive of Nourished Peach, she makes a stellar sounding board. For example, our convo last night via text: Continue reading
Well now if this doesn’t scream my husbands name, I’m not sure what does. This, right here, is one of his very favorite meals…and I have to admit, he has pretty darn good taste.
Lets just start this party immediately, guys. There’s a lot of celebrating to do, no sense in wasting anyones time.
First, we’ve got grilled bread. No, wait. Glazed with olive oil, grilled, crunchy on the outside slightly crisp on the inside bread. And you know, I don’t eat much bread on the regular. But this bread right here? ALWAYS an exception for this girl. Continue reading
I like these. I reeeeaaaalllly like these.
This boring old tomato had been staring me in the eye for days and I finally caved. I knew it wasn’t the kind of tomato that was worthy of being eaten alone with a little salt. After all, it is March. But I needed to utilize it in some way. So I sliced it up and away to the oven it went for a roast. Continue reading
This was positively not supposed to happen today. I had a plan. I am dependent on my plans. For this, I blame my children.
Pre kids I could’ve won awards for flying by the seat of my pants. Always down for whatever. Always willing to juggle around my days. And top notch at getting side tracked and staying up into the late hours of the evening in order to complete the most important task that needed to be done that day. Procrastination was a strong suit of mine. It still is, but there is now a schedule. That part has just got to stick. Continue reading
Try saying that 3 times quickly.
This number right here is borderline too inappropriate to write about. Its over the top. Savory, sweet, acidic, pungent, bright.
Lets just hold the phone. Continue reading
Oh boy, you guys. Talk about an end-of-summer celebration. This, right here, is just that. I am constantly looking for ways to utilize that giant watermelon I often buy this time of year and, well, Im just regretful that I haven’t tried this sooner. Continue reading
This Roasted Eggplant Caprese is a cinch to throw together for a simple weeknight meal. If you’re a fan of the Caprese Salad you’re going to dig this variation. It’s light but filling and we think it pairs wonderfully with a grilled steak or fish. Continue reading
Red wine has always been my go to for beef stew…it gives it such a rich flavor. But as I was putting a pot of stew together this past Sunday I realized we were out of red wine. And in good old Minnesota there are no liquor stores open on Sundays which left me no option but to try something new…and the only thing I could come up with that had potential was balsamic vinegar. Its rich and bold and so savory. Ill never go back…peace out, red wine. This is the real deal, right here. Best beef stew I have ever made. Continue reading
