Peaches and Cream Cocktail #FantasticalFoodFight

I love the Fantastical Food Fight coordinated by Sarah of Fantastical Sharing of Recipes. For more information about the event, click here. I haven't been very good at participating, but this month, I couldn't resist. We were given the challenge of making a recipe with peaches and cream. So. Many. Possibilities.

It is peach season, after all. Try as I might, I couldn't come up with a savory peaches and cream recipe. Savory peach recipes, yes; but nothing with peaches and cream! Jake suggested peach cobbler with whipped cream. Fantastic idea...I'll need you to swap out that oven for me first. Hmmm...

Peaches and Cream Cocktail

Ingredients makes 1 cocktail

  • 3 parts bourbon
  • 1 part heavy whipping cream
  • 1 part peach puree
  • 1 part maple syrup
  • pinch of ground cinnamon
  • thin peach slices for garnish
  • Also needed: ice, cocktail shaker

Fill cocktail shaker halfway with ice. Pour in the bourbon, cream, peach puree, and maple syrup. Add in a dash of cinnamon. Shake for at least 30  seconds. Strain into a serving glass. Garnish with fresh peach slices. Cheers!


  1. I came "this close" to making a peaches and cream martini! I just happen to have all of the ingredients for this cocktail. I know what I'm having tomorrow.

  2. This sounds so yummy!! Great FFF recipe!

  3. If only I liked bourbon... It looks amazing!

  4. Glad you got in under the wire....this sounds like the perfect poolside cocktail.

  5. So glad you got this recipe in on time for the food's really making me feel the need to make a drink! Sounds amazing!

  6. This sounds so so so good. Just the type of drink to share with friends.

  7. Cobbler would be yummy - but not as creative as this cocktail! Glad you could link it up in time.

  8. Mmmm I love that you made a beverage because it just added so much variety to the Food Fight! :) It looks super tasty.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
