Fresh Summer Peaches Call for Homemade Peach Cobbler

Summer fruits at their peak, and peaches are one of my absolute favorites. There’s something about biting into a juicy, ripe peach that brings to mind carefree summer fun, when it doesn’t matter so much if you get a little messy.

I still love eating fresh peaches, but I love peaches in other ways my family can enjoy, too. Peach cobbler combines the perfect sweetness of dessert pastry crust with that summer flavor I love. A hint of ginger and lemon add a little hidden zing.

This cobbler is really easy to make. For the filling, toss together sliced fresh peaches, brown sugar, cornstarch, lemon juice and ginger until the cornstarch is dissolved and the peaches are coated. This will help the cobbler mixture thicken as it cooks, so it develops that signature syrupy coating over the fruit.

The fruit mixture is topped with the pastry mix – a blend of flour, sugar, baking powder, lemon zest, salt, butter and milk – which creates a biscuity crust you’ll want to use to scoop up all the peaches. It can bake in a regular oven, or if you have a toaster oven, use it to keep the kitchen from overheating in the pit of summer. (Get it? Pit?) Top it with some vanilla ice cream while it’s warm, so you can get a little warm peach cobbler and cool ice cream in each bite.

Chicken parmesan is an Italian classic that can be served in many different ways. Whether on its own with a vegetable side, over spaghetti noodles or on a hoagie roll, it’s sure to be tasty. Our recipe below makes perfectly crispy, pan fried chicken cutlets which are then topped with fresh mozzarella cheese and placed under the broiler for five minutes. Once the cheese is melted and gooey, it’s topped with homemade slow cooker marinara sauce and freshly chopped basil, which adds a pop of freshness to the plate.
