    Fruit soups offer a perfect way to beat the summer heat, make use of delicious, abundant summer fruit, and turn a few corners in the kitchen, all at the same time. This recipe turns peaches, wine, cinnamon, nutmeg, yogurt, and cream into a delightful, aromatic soup that is sure to turn a few heads along with those corners.
    Ingredients:
    4 lbs. chopped peeled fresh peaches (organic, if possible)
    1 cup (8 ounces) whole milk plain yogurt (plus extra dollops as garnish)
    2 cups fresh heavy cream
    1 cup dry white wine
    1 cup peach schnapps
    ½ cup sugar
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint leaves
    ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
    dash of curry powder (optional)
    black pepper, as desired
    Mint sprigs as garnish
    Directions:
    In a large mixing bowl, blend white wine, lemon juice, peach schnapps, sugar, mint leaves, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cream until sugar is dissolved.
    Add peeled, sliced peaches, and gently move mixture into a saucepan. Reserve and dice an extra peach to add at the end.
    Cook in saucepan on medium heat for 15 minutes, until peaches are soft, making sure to stir often and lower heat as needed to avoid scalding the cream.
    Remove from heat when peaches are soft.
    Allow mixture to cool down before blending.
    Once the mixture is safely cool enough, add yogurt, and blend until completely smooth. Cover, and refrigerate until well-chilled and ready to serve. Add diced peaches before serving, with a dollop of yogurt, or whipped cream on top, with mint sprigs as garnish. Top with pepper or curry powder, as desired.

    Olive oil
    Balsamic vinegar
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Slice tomatoes onto a plate. Top each tomato slice with a slice of fresh mozzarella.
    Top the cheese with a bit of fresh chopped basil. Drizzle with olive oil, balsamic vinegar and dash with salt and pepper and start eating!

    Okay, so it's still a little early for peaches, but peach season is just around the corner, and when it comes, one of my favorite things to make with peaches, especially early in the season, is a tasty peach crisp.
    This version comes together quickly and delivers a delicious peach crisp that will have your eaters asking for seconds in no time. Makes about six portions, so scale accordingly.
    Ingredients:
    6 fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced ½ teaspoon almond extract ½ teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour ¾ cup white sugar ½ cup brown sugar ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon ¼ teaspoon salt ½ cup butter Directions:
    Heat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
    Place the peaches in the bottom of a greased, 8-inch square baking dish.
    Sprinkle peaches with vanilla and almond extracts.
    In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt.
    Use a pastry cutter to cut the butter into the flour mixture until the mixture forms pea-sized crumbs.
    Sprinkle the flour mixture in an even layer over the top of the peaches, and bake in the preheated oven for about 45 minutes, until the peaches are bubbling and the topping is browned.
    Note: Some gluten-free flours do not brown as well as regular flour, so be careful to avoid overcooking.
    Serve with vanilla ice cream, frozen yogurt, or regular plain yogurt, as desired.
