When I need a break at work, am standing in a long line and actively avoiding eye contact or sitting at home with the baseball game on, there’s about a 99% chance you’ll find me on my phone, scrolling through Pinterest.
It’s not an addiction because it’s not a problem . . . at least that’s what I tell myself.
In my (not so) humble opinion, Pinterest is the supreme happy place. Full of artsy pictures of your favorite things – I can think of no better place to destress.
Mine is full to the brim of geeky memes, fashion, quotes, weather (yes, just go with it), books and, of course, food. Okay, it’s mostly food. This means that I’m never at a loss for a new recipe to try.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed this about Pinterest but it seems once you see a recipe that looks good, almost overnight EVERYONE is posting about it! This just happened to me with the perfect summer dessert recipe, so I figured I’d jump on the bandwagon and share with you.
I’m sure you’ve seen this a million times by now but here it is, sautéed peaches:
Beyond easy with a tad bit of guilt (dessert isn’t dessert if it’s guilt free) but not nearly as bad as other indulgences.
All you have to do is slice your peach in half and place them on a non-stick pan over med/med-high heat until they caramelize
Depending how healthy/naughty you are, add a smudge of butter or coconut oil and cook until peaches are soft and golden.
Place in a bowl with a dollop of vanilla ice cream (or yogurt – I’d recommend whipped coconut greek yogurt) and drizzle the buttery, peach juice on top.
That’s it! I know, I could hardly believe it was the easy when I tried it.
The peaches are as soft as butter – you can cut right through it with a spoon and the warm peaches and cold ice cream make the most perfect combination since peanut butter and honey (you thought I was going to say jelly, didn’t you, you saucy little minx).
Have you tried this recipe before? Let me know how you cook it – I can’t wait to try it again and would love to try your variations of it!
