What I Ate (And What You Should Eat Too) Vol. 1

September 21, 2011

Hi friends!

Happy almost Fall! Many people out there are saying “Happy first day of Fall!” today but did you know that this year, the real first day of Fall isn’t until September 23? So…Happy almost Fall! I can’t wait to really wish you a happy first day of Fall.

Anyways, I thought you should know that I’ve been eating some delicious things lately. And I thought you should know exactly what delicious things I’m eating, so that you can maybe eat them too. You should eat (and drink) them too.

A Peacharita. Got any fresh peaches left over that need using? Blend fresh peaches with tequila, rum, or alcohol of your choice (or without alcohol, if you prefer), ice, and a little sweetener (sugar, agave, whatevs). Sluuuurrrrppp. Enjoy!

Grilled Peach Salad with Goat Cheese and Balsamic Reduction. Get on this peach train before it’s too late. Your grilling days are numbered!

Parmesan Hasselback Baked Potatoes from Marla at Family Fresh Cooking. These potatoes got rave reviews both times I made them. A great alternative to classic baked potatoes. I followed Marla’s recipe to a tee. Mega-delicious.

Blueberry Oat Crumble Bars by How Sweet It Is. Devoured. Double the recipe (and use a 9 x 13 pan). Trust me on that one.

Chicken Pot Pie with Cream Cheese and Chive Biscuits from Joy The Baker. People might fall in love with you if you make this for them. I would fall in love with me if I made this for me…just sayin’. Comfort in a pan. Need I say more?

Rhubarb Crisp. À la mode. If you don’t like crisps and crumbles, we can’t be friends anymore. Make one! If you combine fruit with oats, flour, butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon, and bake it all up together, it will taste good. I promise you.

These cookies. They’re chewy. Hearty. And I’m pretty sure they’re healthy. I can’t stop eating them. I think I may love them even more than these. What what?

Go eat some of these things k? Pronto. I will be back on the real first day of Fall with something…Fall-ish. Later kids!

Oh, and I also recommend plenty of this.

    The last time a glass of wine looked that good… I think it had to do more with who was holding it…

    Great food photos! I am not so suddenly hungry.

    Just found your blog. Love the recipes! Those potatoes look fabulous. I make a similar side dish with sea salt & rosemary sour cream. I’ll have to try topping them with parmesan next time!

      Thank you my dear! Glad you found me! Your version of the potatoes sounds delicious too!
