Keen on Peaches

Dessert pizza is a tricky concept

Dessert pizza is a tricky concept

Last year we barely saw any peaches worth buying, which is a crying shame considering how far south we live. (We buy ours from local farmers, but we’re aware some fruit has been subject to recall.) We’re having fun eating peaches whole, but also like trying new recipes. The pizza above uses our standard dough, balsamic reduction, blue cheese, pecans and basil. We’ve posted a few new ones already including our peach shortcakes and grilled peaches with bourbon (what else!). We’ll be posting some new recipes in the weeks to come. In the meantime here are some of our all-time favorites.

First the drinks:

Peach, Bourbon Fizz

This blog attempts to collect some of the things I try to create with food and booze. Sometimes I succeed and sometimes I fail. My hope is to entertain and maybe help people think a little harder about what they decide to eat and drink.
