Peach French Toast

Ingredients:

1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter
2 tablespoons water
1 (29 ounce) can sliced peaches, drained
12 (3/4 inch thick) slices day-old French bread
5 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 pinch ground cinnamon, or to taste
Directions

In a saucepan, stir together the brown sugar, butter and water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low, and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring frequently.
Pour the brown sugar mixture into a 9x13 inch baking dish, and tilt the dish to cover the entire bottom. Place peaches in a layer over the sugar coating, then top with slices of French bread. In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and vanilla. Slowly pour over the bread slices to coat evenly. Sprinkle cinnamon over the top. Cover and refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
Remove the dish from the refrigerator about 30 minutes before baking to come to room temperature. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the bread is golden brown. Spoon out portions to serve.

Summer Succotash Salad :

2 cups shelled fresh butter beans (1 1/2 pounds unshelled), frozen (thawed) butter beans or baby lima beans
4 tablespoons canola oil, divided
2 cups corn kernels, fresh or frozen (thawed)
1 Vidalia or other sweet onion, finely chopped
1 small yellow squash, chopped
1 small zucchini, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
2 medium tomatoes, seeded and chopped
1/2 stalk celery, very finely chopped
1/2 cup very thinly sliced fresh basil
2 tablespoons cider vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon salt
Freshly ground pepper to taste

1. Place beans in a medium saucepan and cover with water. Bring to a boil.
Reduce to a simmer and cook until tender, about 30 minutes for fresh beans, about 25 minutes for frozen. Drain well. Transfer to a large bowl.

2. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add corn, onion, squash and zucchini and cook, stirring, until crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 45 seconds to 1 minute. Add the cooked vegetables to the bowl of beans. Transfer to the refrigerator to cool for at least 1 hour.

3. When the beans and vegetables are cool, stir in tomatoes, celery and basil.

4. Whisk vinegar and mustard in a bowl. Add the remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a slow, steady stream, whisking constantly, until the dressing is creamy and well combined. Season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the dressing over the succotash and toss to coat.

This is in the oven right now! Shaved asparagus pizza!

I've been wanting to make this for weeks! It's fairly simple and if you are crunched for time, you can always get store bought pizza dough... I made my own dough today and it turned out very nice and subtle! I bet it will be delicious.

Made this tonight with the left over tomato and okra stew I had from last night: Quick, crunchy bread! It is AMAZING and so easy to make! It turns out almost like ciabatta with a crunchy crust but sooo soft inside. I love it!

1 1/2 cups warm water (about 100 degrees)
3/4 of a tablespoon active dry yeast
3/4 of a tablespoon salt

Mix those together well, in a large bowl.
Add 3 to 3 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour (King Arthur is the best!!), 1 cup at a time and mix well. The dough will be very sticky!
Cover with a clean, dry dish towel and let rest in a warm spot for 2 hours (I warm the oven to about 100 F , turn it off and leave the bowl in there with the oven door ajar.

Dust a cookie sheet with cornmeal or flour and dump the dough onto it. If you want, you can shape it a bit or leave it just as it is. The dough is very sticky and wet; this is normal!

Preheat oven to 450F and place a pan with about 2 cups of water in the bottom rack. The steam will give the bread a nice, crispy crust!
Cut (I use a razor blade) 3 vertical slashes into the top of the loaf, dust the top of the loaf with some flour and then bake it for 25-30 minutes. Yum!!

Made these last night and they were amazing! First time I fought my SO over food lol. And very easy to make!


Grilled Banana Boats

6 ripe firm large bananas, unpeeled
6 tablespoons chocolate chips
6 tablespoons miniature marshmallows
2 tablespoons chopped pecans (I used walnuts)

1. Cut 6 (12-inch) sheets of heavy-duty foil. Heat gas or charcoal grill, or heat oven to 350°F.

2. With sharp knife, make deep lengthwise cut along inside curve of each banana, being careful not to cut all the way through. Open slit to form pocket. Crimp and shape 1 sheet of foil around each banana, forming boats.

3. Holding each banana in hand, fill pocket with 2 tablespoons chocolate chips, 2 tablespoons marshmallows and about 1/2 heaping teaspoon chopped pecans.

4. Return each banana to its foil boat. Seal top of foil, leaving 2 to 3 inches
headspace. Place on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until marshmallows soften. Or bake 15 to 20 minutes in oven until marshmallows soften. (Can also place in campfire coals to cook.)

I just made these since I wanted a healthy and fiberous muffin. I was craving something with oat bran and happened to have buttermilk and an apple and wanted to incorporate that. These muffins turned out delicious!!!! Not dry at all, like I was afraid they might be and I bet they will make a wonderful breakfast!
