Oh my YUM.

peach pistachio puff pastry

This flaky, buttery crust is loaded with creamy mascarpone cheese, sweet and juicy peaches then finished with a shower of crunchy, salty chopped pistachios.

Hello flavor explosion!

I’m having just a slight obsession with peaches at the moment. I mean, can you tell?! I’m very sad that peach season is coming to an end. 

mascarpone cheese

And it’s no secret that I love everything puff pastry! Throw something sweet or savory on top of this flaky crust and I am sold.

This is no exception. It’s a bit both savory and sweet, something delicious to make for a snack, an appetizer or even a dessert. Or heck, make it part of your meal.

puff pastry with mascarpone and peaches

It’s SO EASY.

Spread your sheet of puff pastry with a layer of mascarpone cheese. Top with sliced peaches and a drizzle of honey. Top with crushed pistachios and bake!

YES. Only five ingredients, that is it. 

I’ve made something similar with brussels sprouts before and we all freak over it.

My ideal time to make this? If I’m having just a few girlfriends over and we’re going to sit on the patio with cocktails. It’s not an overwhelming snack to make, but it’s also not something you can really make ahead of time because puff pastry is best when consumed right away.

If you make it and pop it in the oven right before guests come, it’s hot and ready and bubbly and cheesy and sweet just in time for everyone to eat!

Rhyming unintentional .

But if you need a few other ideas of how to serve it, I’ve got you!

I love to make this and serve it with a simple lemon arugula salad. Just some arugula greens (or any greens you have, really) with salt, pepper and fresh lemon with olive oil. Like the arugula greens I shared here!

You can also drizzle it with some balsamic glaze for even more of a savory sweet kick. 

Another way you can serve it is with a savory meal, like grilled chicken and vegetables! Pair this on the side as your carb and it gives such a delicious sweet bite to the meal. I love it!  (more…)

I’ve got a midsummer’s dream of a salad here for you today!

burrata basil and peach panzanella

I know, I know, I just shared a (super amazing) rotisserie chicken salad with you last week, but that’s more of a heartier salad. This is more of a lighter summer fruity salad that uses up all your summer garden goodies! 

It can be a great summer patio dinner or even a starter salad. I love it for lunch or even served at a picnic. The flavors are fantastic, the bread is the best part and who can pass up burrata?! 

bread cubes drizzled with basil vinaigrette

Seriously, the toasty cubes with a basil vinaigrette shower. OMG.

bread, tomatoes basil vinaigrette

Let’s talk about how it goes down.

The bread cubes are toasted and crunchy. Then they are drizzled with basil vinaigrette. Oh my gosh – it’s SO good.

If you’ve ever made my traditional summer panzanella salad before, you’ll know exactly what I mean. The vinaigrette soaks into the croutons and it is fantastic. The flavor is unreal. 

The basil vinaigrette uses fresh basil and is slightly briney from the lemon and vinegar and just overall wonderful. You will want to drizzle it on everything or dip everything in it. 

up close tomatoes and bread

Then we load up on peaches, grape tomatoes, lots of fresh basil and… burrata!

Can’t ever get enough of burrata, of course.

The burrata can be pulled apart and fully tossed in the panzanella or set on top where you can pull it apart as you go. (more…)

A Couple Cooks – Recipes worth repeating.

The peach mojito is fresh and sweet: the ideal summer drink! Grab a few ripe peaches and a handful of mint for this impressive cocktail.

Peach mojito

Here’s a cocktail recipe that’s summer in a tall, ice-cube-clinking glass…the Peach Mojito! Imagine: the juicy flavor of that ripe summer fruit, paired with hints of fresh mint, zingy lime, and white rum. It’s light, refreshing and altogether irresistible. We’ve tried over 300 homemade cocktails, but the Mojito is remains one of our favorite drinks of all time. It’s ideal for fruity riffs like this one!

What’s in a peach mojito?

This peach mojito is a fruity spin on the Mojito, a classic cocktail invented in Havana, Cuba. Some say the origins of this drink go all the way back to the 1500’s with an early combination of lime, sugar, and rum. The modern version of got popular in the 1930’s, when writer Ernest Hemingway fell in love with the drink.

It’s now on the list of International Bartender Association’s IBA official cocktails, which means it has an official definition. For the peach variation, you’ll simply add fresh ripe peaches. Here’s what you’ll need:

Peach mojito

Skip this drink if you don’t have ripe peaches!

Give those peaches a squeeze. Does the fruit feel soft and have quite a bit of give? Then you’ve got the peaches you need for a peach mojito! Don’t even attempt this drink if you don’t have the ripest of summer fruit.

Don’t worry: you can still make peach drinks when peaches aren’t in season. The answer? Peach schnapps. Head over to our favorite Peach Schnapps drinks, like the Peach Daiquiri, Peach Martini, and more.

Also try our Peach Cocktails: the Peach Margarita, Bellini, and more!

Muddle the fruit right into the drink

Here’s how to add that lovely peach flavor to this drink: by muddling the fruit right into it! Muddling is gently mashing herbs or fruits to release their juices, which helps their flavors to incorporate into the drink. Here’s what to know about muddling:

  • Use a cocktail muddler. It’s the right tool for the job! Here’s a cocktail muddler, or you can use an unfinished wooden spoon (it’s a little more clunky, but works!).
  • Gently mash the mint! The key to muddling herbs is to be gentle and use a light touch. Don’t mash it with a lot of force.
  • Add the peaches and muddle again. You’ll want to get the fruit mashed down into a juice here.
Peach mojito

Make a peach mojito pitcher (for 8!)

Mixing up this peach mojito for a crowd? Instead of making one drink at a time, try our Mojito Pitcher! All you have to do is muddle up the peaches in advance. You’ll also make a mint syrup to infuse the entire drink with freshness. Here’s what to do:

  • Slice up 8 small peaches or 4 large. Then muddle them into a juice, just like for the single drink.
  • Make the Mojito Pitcher recipe, adding the muddled peaches to the pitcher with the mint syrup.
  • Add additional sliced peaches to the pitcher as a garnish. That’s it!

Give me any excuse to have cake for breakfast! 

blueberry peach coffee cake

Coffee cake is a dream, because it’s really just dessert for breakfast. I mean, who doesn’t want a fluffy cake topped with streusel and icing first thing in the morning with a mug of piping hot coffee?

Set it all out on a patio while looking at the water in the cool morning air and summer is MADE.

Gotta make that happen. ASAP.

This super summery coffee cake is lovely because it’s loaded with summer fruit. You can make it the night before and serve it the next morning for guests, or yourself, or your family – or even take it somewhere. It can also be real dessert, of course. Or an afternoon snack with coffee or tea!

cake batter with blueberries and peaches

I LOVE the blueberry peach combo. There is something about it that is just so summery, so delicious and also, so pretty!

In The Pretty Dish, I have a blueberry peach cobbler bar recipe that is just wonderful. One of my favorite things. The blueberries burst and get so juicy and the peaches taste like cobbler. So darn good.

This coffee cake is like that! Like a giant blueberry muffin studded with precious little peach chunks.

Summer in a cake!

The cake is topped with my favorite crumb topping that I’ve used on coffee cakes in the past and that I use on all my muffins. Then, a classic icing over top for that extra sweetness that no one needs, but it completes the coffee cake!

I adore how fluffy and warming this cake is.

In a season where we are used to enjoying mostly ice cream or shakes or frosty treats, a cake like this is a welcome little change – comforting and perfect. (more…)

Have you ever gotten peaches from The Peach Truck? We’re big peach fans in this household and we’ve never had better peaches than the ones we’ve purchased from them. Only this year, they didn’t come to our town, so we opted for home delivery.

Having peaches delivered to your doorstep might seem a bit over-the-top considering you can walk into any grocery store and grab them, but I promise you, these peaches are different. They’re the most fresh, flavorful, juicy, perfectly sweet peaches we’ve ever had. And their signature peach jam makes one heck of a PB&J.

You can make make this No-Bake Peach Cheesecake with frozen peaches – no problem, but if you can get your hands on some gorgeous, ripe, fresh peaches, that’s totally the way to go.

Have you had your fair share of peaches this summer? I certainly have not. I’m remedying that with my friend Erin Clarke’s vibrant peach, avocado and arugula salad. Erin rounds out the flavors with salty gorgonzola cheese, crisp toasted almonds, and a zippy lemon dressing.

This simple summer salad is more than the sum of its parts. It’s a combination I wouldn’t have come up with on my own, and it’s so lovely. I couldn’t stop going back for more.

Perhaps you know Erin from her blog, Well Plated. Erin has been working hard on her first cookbook for several years now, and I’m so excited to share that it’s finally here! The Well Plated Cookbook (affiliate link) offers over 130 fast, healthy recipes you’ll want to eat.

salad ingredients with well plated cookbook

I found this colorful salad on page 116, titled, “Book Club Salad (A Great, Green Party Salad).” Erin’s headnotes are witty, warm and encouraging, just like she is in real life. Here’s what she had to say about this recipe:

“My friend Erika once brought this salad to our monthly book club, and now, five years later, we still won’t let her bring anything else. We refer to it as ‘The Salad,’ and its presence at the table is more mandatory than actually reading the book. This stellar green salad is sized for a crowd, tastes better than any salad I’ve eaten in a restaurant, and is beautiful and adaptable for the seasons…”

She inspired me not only to make ‘The Salad,’ but to join a book club when we’re able to get together again. In the meantime, this salad recipe is easily halved and perfectly suited for any summer dinner.

Don’t want to grill? Make Roasted Peaches instead!

Ingredients for grilled peaches

These grilled peaches are easy to make, with a short ingredient list! They’re perfect for summer entertaining, especially if you’ve already got the grill fired up for the main dish. Here’s what you’ll need for these peaches:

  • Ripe peaches: Don’t use anything but ripe peaches! We can’t emphasize this enough. Only buy ripe, in season peaches for this recipe. You’ll want them just ripe, not too soft or they’ll turn mushy on the grill.
  • Brown sugar
  • Neutral oil like grapeseed or canola (here’s more)
Grilled peaches

How to find ripe peaches

It can be hard to find perfectly ripe peaches: so make sure to buy them during peach season! It’s great to buy them from your local farmer’s market if peaches are grown near you. Here are a few tips on shopping for ripe, juicy peaches:

  • Choose peaches that are still slightly firm, but that give way slightly when you press gently against them.
  • Ripe peaches should also smell fairly strong and should be bright in color. Any kind of peach works for this recipe; white or yellow, it doesn’t matter as long as the peach is super ripe!

Tips on how to grill peaches

Peaches can go directly onto the grill grates. You’ll just need to know a few basic items: grill temperature and approximate timing. Memorize that and then make grilled peaches on repeat all summer! Here’s what you need to know (or jump to the recipe):

  • Preheat a grill to medium high heat: that’s 375 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • Cut the peaches in half, rub with oil, and sprinkle the tops with brown sugar.
  • Grill 4 minutes cut side down, then flip and cook 3 minutes until the peaches are soft and tender.

Toppings for these grilled peaches

These grilled peaches are just sweet enough on their own: but they’re meant to have toppings! Adding vanilla ice cream takes them from good to amazing status. Here’s what we’d suggest serving them with:

  • Drizzle of honey or maple syrup: Don’t forget this! It adds the final sweetness.
  • Fresh mint leaves: Fresh mint adds a delicious nuance of flavor, and a beautiful color.
  • Vanilla ice cream: The final touch: melty vanilla ice cream! This is what transforms the grilled peaches into the perfect dessert with a “peaches and cream” vibe. (It reminds us of our favorite peach pie!)

Topping the grilled peaches is the fun part, and you can get creative! Here are some more ideas for tasty ways to serve them:
