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. 😉 )

Spiced Apple Butter

Spread Spiced Apple Butter on your morning toast for a sweet autumn breakfast.

I will admit to not knowing what Apple Butter was until approx 3.5 weeks ago when J went across the border to Murrica (ahem – the USA) and brought me back Pumpkin Butter from Trader Joe’s. J loves to bring me back food treats when he goes to the US (what a good fiance!) – usually it’s huge blocks of cheese, but this time – PUMPKIN BUTTER FOR THE WIN.

Anyway. Trader Joe’s Pumpkin Butter is amazing, and you should buy it if you haven’t already. It inspired me to create my own “butter” – but pumpkin sounded too tricky, so here we are with Spiced Apple Butter.
