This past weekend I had the wonderful and exciting opportunity to attend Bloggy Bootcamp Philadelphia. It was so weird to have the event taking place in my city since I’m always traveling for events like this! But I’m so glad that I took the time to go, because I learned so much new information! One of the sponsors for the #BBCPhilly was King’s Hawaiian. And they hooked us up. I walked out of there with 3 bags of bread! And let me tell you something. This is like my new favorite bread. Now you know I love desserts and all of that. So I’ve got a mean sweet tooth. This bread is amazing! It has the perfect sweetness and it didn’t take much for me to fall in love with it! Every meal that I ate on Sunday consisted of King’s Hawaiian. No exaggeration. I have to share this French Toast recipe with you though. I promise, you’ll thank me later. [Read more...]
This week’s 5 Ingredient Friday recipe was inspired by my Fruit Share from the CSA. I got a bunch of Peaches in my Fruit Share this week that have ripened up very nicely, so I wanted to saute some of them to serve with dinner. I love this recipe because it can be used with dinner OR dessert! I’ve served this on top of some chicken breasts before, and let me tell you how amazing it was! This time I served it as a side dish. It’s been so hot here in Philly that I have been trying to use the stove top instead of the oven whenever I can. So I decided to throw this together! It’s so simple and you can use whatever spices you want. I happen to love Cinnamon and Nutmeg, but Allspice and Ginger is wonderful in it as well.
- 3 Peaches; peeled & sliced
- 3 Tablespoons butter
- 1/3 cup packed Dark Brown Sugar
- 1/8 teaspoon Cinnamon (I recommend Penzey’s extra fancy Vietnamese Cinnamon)
- 1/8 teaspoon Nutmeg (I recommend Penzey’s Fine Ground Grenadian West Indian Nutmeg)
These Peaches are great served with a Protein (Chicken, Pork, etc), served as a side dish, or even for Dessert! They go great over Pound Cake, on top of Vanilla Bean Ice Cream, etc. The possibilities are endless! Be creative and have fun with it.
