Peaches Gone Wild

Oh baby baby!

So I was craving sweets the other night. I've been trying to limit the amount of sugar I eat because trust me, it's a lot. So I threw out my sweets and decided cold turkey was the best option.


Just like any drug user, I need to wean myself off the drug. So, in an attempt to cure my aching for sweets, I sauteed some peaches:

Sweet Peaches
  • 2 sliced peaches
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • Optional: 1 tbsp good rum, vanilla ice cream
1. Add sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg (and rum if you chose) to sliced peaches. Let them "marinade" for about 20 minutes. I had fresh peaches that were about to go bad, so I used them. I suppose canned would work, but fresh is best!
2. Melt the butter in a saute pan.
3. Add peaches to pan.
4. Cook for about 10-15 minutes until they are soft.

Overall: Yeah, it cured my sweet tooth. I wish I was 21 so I could go get some rum to cook with. Or I had some vanilla ice cream to top. Or had some flour and other ingredients to make like a cobbler. But it was yummy, and I had the rest the next morning in some yogurt and granola.

On another note, I'm TRYING to work on my photographing of pictures. The next few posts are actually scheduled so they don't reflect my attempts at taking pretty pictures.

Sometime, a little grilled carmelized fruit is all I really need to satisfy my sweet tooth. This looks great on its own, but knowing myself, I would probably add a bif spoonful of whipped cream to sweeten it up even more!!
