To Cook: August Recipes

Good morning! One of my favorite things about the start of each month is planning what I want to try and cook or cook with throughout the month. August is abundant with end-of-summer produce, and I plan to take full advantage of all the fruit and veggies. Today, I wanted to share what I plan to indulge in this month, along with a quick recipe:

  • blackberry pancakes (will be on the blog!)

  • peach slushies (recipe below)

  • tomato sauce (will also be on the blog!)

  • burrata and strawberries (paired with a nice rosé, from my favorite Wine Food)

  • scones (probably with more berries)

  • bbq and all of the sides (my birthday feast at the lake!)

Peach Slushies (makes one serving, inspired by Bon Appetit’s Universal Slushie, August 2019 issue)

Ingredients:

  • one peach, sliced

  • one lime, for the juice

  • a handful of ice cubes

  • 1/4 cup of water

Directions:

  1. Add peaches, ice, and water to a blender. Squeeze-in lime juice. Blend on high until drink is frothy and frozen.
