Peach Ricotta Toast

Enjoy peach ricotta toast for breakfast at the height of peach season - juicy sweet peaches are paired with creamy ricotta and crunchy salted pistachios.
Oh, peaches.

Peaches are the one fruit that unequivocally spells summer. When eaten at their ripest they are so sweet, tender, and juicy – no other fruit compares! Peaches have such a short season, so let’s take advantage and eat ALL the peaches while we can!

Peaches grow a few hours inland from where I live – in the Okanagan region. It’s an area that gets hot dry summers and has perfect growing conditions for fruit (and wine! yum!)

I vacationed at a lake in the Okanagan two weeks ago, and peaches were the one thing I was set on bringing back home. (Besides cherries. And apricots. And blueberries. And tomatoes. Oh, and lots and lots of wine. ūüėČ )

Have you ever browsed the hashtag #ToastTuesday on Instagram? It’s kind of the best. Every Tuesday, around the world, people eat toast for breakfast and then post a photo of their toast creations on Instagram. Toast is such a trend right now!

Today is not Tuesday. But we’re still talking about toast. Honeyed Ricotta Toast with Berries, to be precise. #ToastThursday?? ūüėČ

These Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Ricotta Muffins have pockets of bursty sweet blueberries enclosed in a moist, lemony fresh muffin.

Do you know one of my favourite things about summer? THE FRUIT.

I have a summer fruit addiction. I could consume my weight in fruit every day. My happiest moment this past week was finding a company who will ship me fresh stone fruits from the Okanagan (best fruit growing region out here on the west coast) straight to my door – today I received 10lbs of apricots! Mmmmm… now to decide what to do with them all.

I also just bought a giant box of blueberries from the market last weekend and have been devouring them all week – truly, there are only a handful left. I knew I had to whip up some blueberry muffins – because there’s nothing better than pockets of bursty sweet blueberries enclosed in a moist, lemony fresh muffin.

Breakfast Galette

A cheesy Breakfast Galette wrapped in sour cream pastry with an egg baked onto it - a special weekend brunch!

I have a soft spot in my heart for galettes – the pastry¬†is supposed to¬†look¬†kind of messy, they’re usually filled with¬†fresh seasonal fruit, and they are just so rustic and lovely to look at and taste. In fact, we’re serving fruit galettes as our wedding dessert! So yes I do love them that much.

Here we have another take on the galette Рa Breakfast Galette. Similar idea Рthe recipe uses the same sour cream pastry dough as I make for fruit galettes, but instead of filling the galette with fruit, it is filled with creamy ricotta and mozzarella cheese, and then topped with proscuitto, basil, and a big fat egg.

Savory Ricotta Chive Waffles

Savory Ricotta Chive Waffles - the outsides are crisp while the insides are soft and fluffy, flavoured with a gentle tang of ricotta and burst of oniony chives.

Let’s talk about savory waffles. Savory waffles get no love. They’re the sad cousin¬†of the sweet waffle, who is attention-seeking with her sweetness¬†and colourful berry garnishes, always drowned in maple syrup or fruit compote.

Savory waffles are subtle and understated. Really, you can eat them anywhere you’d eat a piece of toast – and I would suggest that they are even tastier than a piece of toast because you can easily customize their flavour.
