Peach Cobbler

Take advantage of peach season with this must try- Peach Cobbler!

Peach Cobbler Recipe

Peaches are on the top of my list of favorite foods- sweet, delicious, and special since they are only around part of the year. We patiently wait for them to make an appearance at our local farmers market and when they do we always buy one too many. About a week after I get them home I start to realize that we will never be able to get through them. This is when I do one of two things…

1. Freeze them for smoothies.

2. Make this cobbler.

Nine times out of ten the cobbler wins the coin toss.

Boozy Bourbon Cherries

A great gift for cocktail lovers! >> Boozy Bourbon Cherries

Bourbon Cherries

I have had this recipe bookmarked from The Family Calendar Cookbook for several months now.  I knew it was something I’d want to make in the summer… when cherries are affordable and plentiful and delicious!  My husband enjoys making the occasional Manhattan or Old Fashioned, and he was very excited to learn of my plans to make some homemade boozy bourbon cherries!

12 Books Recommended for Summer Reading

Here are 12 Books Recommended for Summer Reading— shared by my big sister Susie.  She is a huge reader…. HUGE.  She plows through books like crazy– all year long.  Trust me when I say that Susie is awesome at reviewing and recommending good books.  She keeps a journal of all of the books she has read, and she gives them letter grades.  These books shared today all received an “A” grade by Susie!  I hope you find a few books in her list that might interest you for summer reading.  Please let me know if you like this feature, and I’ll have Susie share her book recs more often!

Summer Reading

A note from Susie– How I choose the books I want to read:

  • I find books primarily through Goodreads and Amazon’s books of the month. Goodreads sends me an email at the beginning of each month. I read about the books in their fiction and historical fiction categories. Then I go to Amazon and put the ones I think I’d like on my book wish list. I check out Amazon’s Best Books of the Month list in the Literature & Fiction category, too. Many of the books are the same and I do the same thing with putting ones that look good on the wish list. (Many of the books on the list haven’t been released yet.) I also sometimes look at magazine reviews and sometimes NPR has good lists. If a book keeps showing up over and over, even if I didn’t think it sounded so great, I’ll add it to my list. Then when I need new reading material, I’ll typically go to the wish list and download 4 or 5 samples and go from there. I have so many books on my list now that if I’m not grabbed by the sample, I’ll typically move on. If I buy a book and then read a reasonable chunk of it and am not liking it, I no longer force myself to finish it. There are far too many great books out there to waste time on ones you don’t enjoy!  Following are my reviews and recommendations of 12 books that would be great for summer reading…
