Each Friday, we share five things that are getting buzz around the Cooking Light offices—from what we’re reading around the Web, to what’s hot on Instagram, or even our latest favorite ingredient.
August is National Peach Month, and this is one celebration we can really get behind. Here, five of our favorite dishes featuring this beautiful stone fruit.
The Peach and Brie Quesadillas sound like a strange combination, but it’s absolute perfection. Plus, they’re ludicrously easy to make. – Jackie Long, CookingLight.com fellow
I have wanted to make the Peach Cobbler with Ice Cream with Bourbon-Caramel Sauce since it came out in June. – Kate Johnson, Copy Editor
The Bruschetta with Peach Salsa and Melted Brie is a one of my favorite fruit and cheese appetizers. It’s easy to serve: Prepare the salsa in advance. Broil the cheese toasts and top with the salsa when guests arrive. Simple and serves 12; each person gets 2! – Mary Creel, Special Publications Editor
Since moving to Alabama [from New York], I’ve discovered a love for all things peach and bourbon. The Peachy Bourbon Lemonade is the perfect drink. It’s dangerously sippable and perfect for a steamy, humid summer night. – Nicole Gerrity, Assistant Designer
I made the Blueberry-Peach Cobbler for my best friend’s wedding in July. We were in Georgia, and the bride and groom had family members coming from all over the country — Michigan, Ohio, California. This cobbler was the perfect way to welcome them to the South and showcase our fine peaches and blueberries. They were fighting over the crumbs in the pan. – Kimberly Holland, Assistant Editor
