Grilled Peach and Cinnamon Crumble Ice Cream

We’re in a crazy heat wave and it’s the perfect time to share a new recipe for ice cream! I was looking for something different to make when I stumbled across this recipe. Grilled peaches and cinnamon crumble….yes, please! I knew this would be the perfect recipe to make for this month’s Fantastical Food Fight! Each month, a theme or ingredient is featured and anyone participating the challenge will share their recipes with everyone else. Check out the blog hop below the recipe for more ice cream recipe.

I know last month’s theme was Peaches and Cream, but this recipe was too good not to make. The grilled peaches really enhance the peach flavor and then the cinnamon crumble adds a great texture to the decadent and creamy ice cream. I asked my husband to describe it since I only had spoonful and he just mumbled “mmmmmm” at me. I guess it’s a winner of a recipe!

Peaches and Cream Fruit Gummies

Happy first day of summer! It’s finally feeling like summer here in PA and we’ve been able to go swimming already – which my kids absolutely love! Do you have any vacation plans this year? We’ll probably do a couple of day trips to the shore and my kids are begging to go to Hershey Park.

Today is also June’s Fantastical Food Fight! Each month, there will be a theme or ingredient to be featured and anyone participating the challenge will share their recipes with everyone else. Check out the blog hop below the recipe!

This month’s theme was peaches and cream. I didn’t want to make something that I would normally make and wanted to try something different. This was the first time I ever used gelatin. Add on the fact that I don’t care for foods with jello like texture – but I was surprised these gummies are good! They’re different from what my kids are used, but the peach flavor was perfect – not too strong and enough to taste it. I had a little trouble getting the gummies to release from the pan to cut into small squares, so I used a mini cookie cutter to make star shapes! These gummies don’t have a long shelf like, so I sent them to camp with my daughter for her friends to enjoy! Another thing I like about the recipe is that the flavors can be changed to whatever you like. I bet mango and strawberry would be delicious!

Peanut Butter and Jelly Bars

Peanut butter and jelly….spread’em out. Whenever I hear those words, it takes me back to my days of cheerleading camp. I even find myself saying at my cheer practices now. Today’s recipe is part of the Fantastical Food Fight blogging group. Each month we’re given a theme – it could be an ingredient or a specific recipe. This month’s theme was Peanut Butter and Jelly. I was planning to make burgers with a PB&J twist, but life got in the way. This was my back-up plan.

My husband loves peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and I knew these bars would be a hit! Now if I can just stay away from the container of them that’s taunting me every time I go into the kitchen. I did sneak a little taste when I was cutting them up and they’re full of peanut butter and jelly deliciousness. They have peanut butter shortbread crust, gooey jelly filling and then a crumbly top with honey-roasted peanuts. YUM!!

BLT Deviled Eggs

I joined a new blogging group called The Fantastical Food Fight and I’m excited to share my first post, but first a little about the food fight. Each month, we decide on a theme – it could be as simple as an ingredient or a specific type of food. Then all the participants share their recipe on the same day! Fun, right?! This month’s theme was deviled eggs. I’ve been eating a lot of hard-boiled eggs for breakfast lately…still trying to do the low carb thing (it’s not going well), so I knew I could whip something up with what I had on hand in the kitchen. I had all the ingredients to make BLTs…so why not combine them? It was amazing and we all inhaled them with dinner the other night.

So you want to know something crazy, after blogging for 7 years, I have never made traditional deviled eggs! I’m really shocked, but I definitely will be experimenting more and I can’t wait to see what all my fellow bloggers share in the blog hop below!
