Summer Recipes

Hi There,

I wanted to share some summer recipes with you all.  The recipes that I made were vegetables and fruits that I purchased from my local farmer's market.

First dish is Greek Pasta Salad.  Recipe is here.  I used fresh oregano from my garden instead of the dried as listed on recipe.  It was so good and is definitely a great dish to take to a picnic.







 I also made Honey Peach Ice Cream.  Recipe is here.  This was also tasty.  It was fun using fresh local peaches from Georgia.  I just love fresh peaches in the summer and love to use them in many things when I am cooking.  I also like to make peach cobblers, peach clafouti's, peach pies and peach smoothies.



I used Savannah Bee Tupelo honey in the ice cream.  You can purchase it here.


Cooking the peaches until softened for about 10 minutes


On right had side, milk, heavy cream and sugar and egg yolks cooked until temp. at 170 degrees and coats the back of a spoon.  Left hand side is cooked peach mixture.




After placing in freezer for a couple of hours, it is time to taste!  This is definitely a keeper!

Thanks for visiting!
