Peach Cobbler

My husband loves his fruit trees that he planted and today he brought in a big bag full of peaches and I know what that means!  His favorite dessert is peach cobbler, but with all the peaches coming off those trees I end up making not only peach cobbler, but crumble, crisp and canning some.  

 

Banana Bread Muffins

Banana Bread Muffins

I’m sure banana bread must be made in just about every country. It’s simple, delicious and a great way to use those bananas that have gone bad. In fact, the browner they are, the tastier the bread.  I love making banana muffins because they are crispy on the edge, just the way I like them, it's the lemon juice in this recipe that helps make them crispy. My kids love it when I put chocolate chips in them too – can’t go wrong with chocolate and bananas!

Ratatouille

This recipe is perfect for this time of year because of all the fresh vegetables and herbs from the garden. The thing about Ratatouille is it’s a great dish to play around with, adding all types of vegetables from your garden and having a wonderful summer feast.  You can have it as a side to rice or pasta or just by itself with a poached or fried egg on top.

Portuguese Orange Cake

Portugal is well known for Orange Cake especially the Orange Cake made with Olive Oil.  While my son lived in Portugal he had this cake many times, they even served it in little cafés for breakfast.

Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan

Chicken Parmesan is one of my favorite Italian dishes! I order this pretty much every time I eat at an Italian restaurant and when I try a new dish, I end up going back to this one. I just love it that much. I tried my own version at home and I have to say this is just as delicious, if not better, I was quite proud of myself. I like to use chicken thighs as I think that chicken breasts get a little dry.

British Beef Stew

English Beef Stew

I always loved a bowl of hot stew during England’s cold, dark winters.  A touch of Worcestershire sauce would spice it up along with some warm homemade rolls, mmmm…delicious! There’s nothing better to come home to when you’re cold and wet. I know what you’re thinking…it’s summer right now and NO I didn’t make this recently, I made it last winter and took pictures then.  Just remember this recipe when winter hits, your family will love you for it. It warms you up and life feels good.  

French Brioches

French Brioches

If you lived in France there would be no reason to make these delicious bubbletop brioches because you can find them at every boulangerie and even in the supermarkets.  If you miss that sweet, buttery flavor then try making these rolls, all you need is a little patience, time and a lot of energy if you don’t have a mixer.  Make sure you read ahead before you start, it’s a two day process, you cannot rush the rising, so it’s very important for the overnight rest. Jut plan ahead and it’ll be an easy task.
