IMG_7044I can’t believe I haven’t made anything with peaches yet! I wanted to make a roasted peach dessert, but decided to make this salsa instead. I’m sure that doesn’t come as much of a surprise, considering I’m on a Mexican food-making kick lately. I’m glad I changed my mind, though, as the salsa was incredible! I loved the sweetness of the peaches paired with the spiciness of the Serrano peppers. Serve the salsa with tortilla chips or on top of grilled chicken breasts.

This past weekend revolved around food–particularly yesterday. On top of making these delicious and unique tostadas, I made spicy queso dip (with my new cast iron skillet!), and jalapeño margaritas. I’ll post both recipes soon. Back to the tostadas, though. The tostadas were beyond flavorful and spicy! I have a relatively low spice tolerance, so I added extra sour cream to calm the burn. :)

I’ve become a tough critic when it comes to banana bread, but this recipe had me dancing on the ceiling. The bread is by far one of the best I’ve ever tasted–I can’t stop thinking and talking about it. Although more time-consuming than most banana bread recipes, it is way worth the effort. I could and would have eaten the entire loaf myself, but I figured it best to share!

Not being able to cook for the last couple of weeks has been torture! Now that I’m finally able to eat solid foods (well, soft foods), I decided to bake some banana bread with my over-ripe bananas. This banana bread recipe was delicious, but I have to admit that I prefer this recipe!

I love lemon–especially when used in desserts. I was craving a lemon treat the other night, so I decided to make these lemon sugar cookies. The texture of the cookie was perfect–slightly crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. Of course the cookies were unbelievably addicting, so I shared them with friends and co-workers. That way, I didn’t eat the entire batch!

I hosted my third Lean on Lamb Supper Club the other night. In the past, the Tri-Lamb Group supplied me with a recipe; this time, I had to create my own. The Tri-Lamb Group sent me a frozen, boneless leg of lamb and a gift card for ingredients.

I garnered inspiration from friends, family, co-workers and the Internet, as I rarely cook with lamb. I decided on crock-pot lamb with Greek yogurt, mint and pomegranate with a pomegranate and cinnamon reduction. The result was fantastic, with the reduction being one of the stars of the meal.

The Tri-Lamb Group is “a collaborative initiative of lamb producer organizations from the U.S., New Zealand and Australia which focuses on educating Americans about lamb.” The company selects food and lifestyle bloggers in LA, Boston and Washington, D.C.

I was recently asked to guest blog for one of my favorite food bloggers, Raymund from Ang Sarap. I was truly honored when I received his e-mail. Head over to Ang Sarap to check out my guest post.

Since it’s been an insanely busy and hectic work week, I’m anticipating a relaxing weekend ahead. Unfortunately, that meant I had to put cooking and blogging on the back burner. I did, however, find time to whip up this simple and gorgeous blackberry fool–healthy for a dessert, too. ;) Are you catching onto this theme over the past few weeks? Well, we’ll see how long that lasts. ;)
