47 Fresh Summer Peach Recipes

Looking for recipes that will help you use the fresh summer peaches that are in season right now? Check out this round-up of peach recipes on Taste As You Go!

Welcome to August, everyone!

Now that we're in the latter half of the summer, I've started to see more and more fresh peaches at our local farmers market, which means more and more fresh peaches for snacking on at home.

Since uses for fresh peaches extend well beyond the realm of healthy snacking, I've enlisted the help of my fellow food bloggers and have put together a photo-heavy round-up of 47 Fresh Summer Peach Recipes. The next time you're in need of some peach inspiration, I'm sure you'll find something to suit your tastes here!

Curious to see what made the cut?

I have had the opportunity to meet some amazing bloggers through Taste As You Go, some in real life and some online. In attempt to introduce my readers to some bloggers they may not know about and to highlight the culinary skills of some incredibly talented people, I will be featuring Guest Posts here from time to time.

Today's Guest Post was written by my fabulous friend, Anne Coleman. Anne is a mother of seven, a formally-trained chef, and an veritable expert on frugal cooking.

Trying New Varieties of Nonni's THINaddictives

Nonni's THINaddictives are twice-baked treats that are "so thin, so crunchy, so addictive".
Nonni's THINaddictives

I don't remember exactly when it happened or why it happened, but at some point in my younger years, my parents started buying huge plastic tubs of Nonni's Biscotti, and several members of my family became huge fans of the kind dipped in gourmet bittersweet chocolate. So much so that I nearly always kept a box of biscotti on hand when I went away to college because they reminded me of home.

Because of my somewhat sentimental attachment to the Nonni's brand, I accepted an offer to try two new flavors of Nonni's THINaddictives -- Banana Dark Chocolate Almond Thins and Blueberry Oat Almond Thins -- which are conveniently packaged into six pre-portioned 100-calorie freshness packs. Both varieties are low-fat, low-calorie, low-carb, and low-sugar snacks, so you can feel good about eating them.

The flavor combinations sounded intriguing, and I was curious to see how they'd stand up to my well-established opinions about the Nonni's brand.

Menu Plan: July 27 - August 2

Sharing our Menu Plan for July 27 - August 2, 2014

Over brunch this morning, Stephen and I admitted to each other that we haven't exactly been making the best food choices as of late. (See here and here and here.) I don't know what caused us to slip, but we're both going to try and make better choices moving forward. If not for the sake of our bodies, then for the sake of our wallets!

This means meals on the lighter side... Meals that call for more vegetables and less meat. So, I think that I've come up with a decent menu plan for the week that not only fits our dietary needs but also our grocery budget.

Are you ready to see what's on deck for dinner for us this week?
