The BEST FRUITS of SUMMER: NECTARINES & PEACHES, Part 1

It is a banner year for stone fruits here in our little foothill garden! First it was amazing peaches and this week I picked a half bushel basket of nectarines and barely made a dent in the fruit. 425 more words

Watermelon salad

Today I’m sharing a real summer recipe. I brought it to the 4th of July party and it was such a hit. And adding the fact that it took me about 7 minutes to throw together before we left the house makes it a winner for me. 172 more words

Sweet and savoury bruschetta

This is my ‘go to’ dish when I feel like having some real comfort food. I usually make smaller bruschettas as a sharer/starter for dinner parties with friends, but seeing as I love the taste so much I supersized the portions to turn the dish into a main course. 291 more words

Balsamic Glaze

Hello again!

There seems to be a slight trend happening lately here at Messy Counters. An I-Don’t-Like-Any-Store-Bought-Version-Of-Whatever-So-I-Have-To-Make-My-Own trend.

In the case of Balsamic Glaze, I can’t seem to find one that isn’t either sickeningly sweet or tar thick. 265 more words

Summertime PEACH CAPRESE SALAD

Next to blueberries, peaches are my favorite summertime fruit and my 3 little trees are loaded with ripe, juicy peaches right now, so it’s peach everything for a few weeks! 289 more words

Tomay-to, Tomah-to and Crispy Bruschetta

Today’s a bread-y kind of lunch day, but a sandwich just wasn’t enticing. Hello, bruschetta in all its summery glory. Absurdly easy to prepare, the bruschetta really let your ingredients shine, which is a good thing if you hit the grocery store the day before and have delicious fresh sourdough chilling on your counter and beautiful minty basil leaves in your fridge.  263 more words

Pork Chops with Balsamic Glaze

Another incredibly easy dish which can be prepared the night before. This works well served with lots of vegetables. I chose marsh samphire as I’d bought a huge bag of it from my local grocery store. 196 more words
