Week in Review: Peaches and the Vulcan of Love

Vulcan of Love

I love this image — combining my love of Spock and Steve Miller Band!  Happy Friday everyone!  Last week was so crazy that I didn’t even get a chance to do my week in review post — and gosh I realized how much I enjoy doing these!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

So, yesterday was “Eat a Peach Day”.  I love peaches and have enjoyed utilizing them in recipes such as our Peach and Blackberry Crisp, Bourbon-Seared Peaches, and of course our Peach Lavender Jam.  Whenever I think of peaches, my mind returns to 1996 and the song, “Peaches” by ‘The Presidents of the United States of America’.


With that, I thought I would do a round-up of some of the terrific peach recipes from my fellow bloggers!

Peach Buckle from Cottage Grove House

Roasted Peach and Coconut Popsicles from in.gredients  

Vegan Peach Pie from The Pancake Princess

Peach Pecan Ice Cream from MJ’s Kitchen

Peach and Tomato Gazpacho from Sparrow in the Treetop

Peach and Cilantro Salsa from Austin Urban Garden

Peach and Nectarine Crostata from The Painted Apron  

Grilled Peaches with Goat Cheese and Balsamic from A Time to Kale

Raspberry Coulis (with uses peaches) from Now at Home Mom

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wedding Tree Planting Ceremony

It is always such a pleasant surprise to look in the ‘referrers’ section of my statistics and see where my readers are coming from.  It is especially pleasant when I discover that I have been quoted and/or linked on someone else’s page.  Today I was happy to discover that our post describing our Wedding Tree Planting Ceremony was quoted and linked in an article on About.Com’s Wedding Traditions Section!

    When I was 12, my next door neighbor taught me how to make a peach cobbler and I have never tried another though I have learned that other fruits or berries work just as well.

    Yum, I looooove peaches! Thanks so much for including my recipe in your round-up. I grew up in Seattle in the 90s so of course I often think of that Presidents song, too. 🙂 And CONGRATS on being mentioned on About.com! That’s so exciting!

    This is great Kenley. “Things are going to start happening now”! (reference “The movie “The Jerk” and Nathan Johnson, lol). Congratulations on your About.com link, just excellent my friend. And peaches and Spock, love them both (for different reasons)! 🙂
