71423

Yesterday, I did a television cooking segment for NBC 13 Daytime Alabama featuring fresh Chilton County Peaches. One of the three recipes I made was Pork Chops with Peach Salsa which was featured on my site a few weeks back. It had such huge views that I was requested to feature it again.  Here you go.  I hope you enjoy.

Summer Easy Dinner: Glazed Pork with Peach Salsa

IMG_4038

Try Pork with Peach Salsa for a quick summer weeknight meal. This recipe is so easy using peach preserves and honey as a glaze over the pork. I use boneless pork loin chops because they cook so quickly, perfect for busy people. Feel free to grill the pork outdoors, inside in a grill pan or even nonstick skillet. This Peach Salsa is wonderful and filled with fresh peaches, cilantro, purple onion and lime juice. If you don’t eat pork, feel free to subsitute boneless chicken breasts, or I prefer chicken cutlets because they are thinner and cook even quicker.

Summer Dessert Comfort Food: Peach-Blueberry Crisp

I’ve been searching for a great crisp recipe using fresh peaches and blueberries that I bought yesterday from the farmer’s market. My sister just recently purchased Emeril’s book “20-40-60 Fresh Food Fast”, and showed me his recipe. I adapted his recipe just slightly reducing some of the butter and using whole wheat flour. It came out great! Enjoy the peak of delicious summertime fruit with this comforting dessert.

Easy Dessert Idea: Fresh Peach Quesadillas

We love quesadillas at my house, but when I suggested dessert quesadillas, my kids were a little skeptical. Yesterday, my son, Alec, came home from cross country after running 3.6 miles. He tried these and and loved them. I wrote about it on facebook and had so much interest from moms and college students. I am very excited about being in Nashville this week on Newschannel 5 “Talk of the Town” preparing college recipes so tune in at 11:30 central or check the internet for the show.

Easy Peach Cobbler with Steel Cut Oats Topping

If you ever get the chance to try Chilton County peaches from Alabama, you’ll relish in their fabulous juicy fresh taste. We had a basket of fresh peaches so I decided to make a simple cobbler with ingredients I had on hand. I love oatmeal in my cobbler toppings, but all I had was steel cut oats. It worked great! Serve with vanilla ice cream or whipped cream for an added touch.
