Grilled Peaches + One Southern Year

Fresh Peaches | Fork Knife Swoon

Happy Fourth of July, Lovelies! I hope you are enjoying the holiday.

Today also marks exactly one year since I left my job and life in San Francisco to start a new chapter with the Honey in the deep South. Despite the many adventures we’ve had along the way, I’m not sure if it really feels like a whole year has passed. Part of me still thinks it couldn’t possibly be that long, but yet the daily details and experiences of living in the City seem ages away. Never has a decision scared me so much, and ultimately been so rewarding.

The Honey is gone again for work for the next couple of weeks, so the celebrations today will be muted. Something along the lines of dessert for one while catching up on guilty-pleasure tv shows with the pup snoring in the background.

I was thinking about the first recipe I made for Swoon after moving to the South, a rustic Peach Galette, and decided to make another simple peach dessert to mark the one year milestone. Sweet and juicy grilled peaches with a dollop of fresh whipped cream and a sprinkling of almonds was just the ticket. This recipe really couldn’t be simpler, taking advantage of flavorful, peak season fruit, and isΒ  just about the perfect Summer dessert for celebrations big and small.
