If you are looking for a quick and easy dessert then this Fresh Peach and Blueberry Tart will be one you’ll want on your must try list! I’m so into fresh fruits this year and have been really trying to incorporate them into lots of my dishes. And I did I mention quick? Yep! and once it goes in the oven, you’ll be enjoying this beautiful tart in 25-30 minutes. It really best when served warm but it also tastes good when left at room temperature. So who’s pulling up a chair for this tasty treat??
A couple weeks ago we were invited to a friend’s cabin, along with another couple, for the weekend for some R&R. Most of the time us three gals just visited and caught up on each others lives – we spent a lot of time on the dock, sitting, relaxing and soaking up the warm sunshine. Once in a while their dog, Belle, would come by and want one of us to throw this toy in the lake. Such a relaxing life! Our men were off trying to provide for the families by fishing in the near by lakes. Everyone had a great time. I love life at the lake and being on lake time. Get up whenever, just throwing on some clothes and don’t even need to do make-up! It’s the best.
We all bring food along and I was in charge of dinner that night. For the main course I marinaded some chicken cubes, skewered and grill them. I also grilled a lot of fresh veggies and mixed them in orzo pasta drizzled with olive oil. Pretty easy. Next up was dessert and I had originally seen this recipe on pinterest by Baker by Nature. I was impressed by how easy it came together and it was the perfect size for the six of us. Of course though I just HAD to make it again to get some pictures. And – well – John and I ate about 2/3 of it ourselves…. Don’t judge us. Make it for yourself and see why it was such a hit!
