Recently I checked out a beautiful cookbook from the local library. It's called What Katie Ate by Katie Quinn Davies. I wrote about it, and added photos, over at Novel Meals. If you'd like, check it out HERE.
My representative sweet dish from this book is baked peaches. It's easy. Humble. Too delicious to be able to prepare in just 20 minutes. It only takes 2 minutes to toss together, honest!
Halve the peaches and remove pit, scrape the yucky brown out and toss away.
Drizzle a small amount of honey into the peach...next time we are adding cinnamon as well as honey.
Bake for 20 minutes in a 350 F oven. Add a small spoonful (or two) of vanilla ice cream.
Served with port, this combo of warm peach and honey contrasting with the icy vanilla melting in pools around the peach - perfection. Doug said it was one of the best desserts we've had in a long time.
Here it is again....it deserves a second look :-)
High praise, Katie. I will be preparing more from this gorgeous book soon.
