when fresh peaches are in season, you’ve got to act fast

A ripe peach waits for no one, so don’t waste precious time dithering about what to make ~ let’s get cooking! Here are some of the best ways to take advantage of the season, just scroll, choose, and run, don’t walk, to your kitchen….


easy spiced peach bread

If you’ve got peaches, and you don’t know what recipe to choose, choose this one! A classic loaf is always my go-to when I want to make something simple but special with seasonal fruit. This one is lightly spiced for a warm, comforting flavor that complements the peaches perfectly.

fresh peach shortcake

Most of us know the magic of a good strawberry shortcake, but I have to say, I think peach short cake is even better! Juicy peaches, buttery biscuits, and freshly whipped cream are the summer dessert I’ll be serving at every gathering from now until fall.


ripe peach popsicles

If you really want to highlight the pure, amazing taste of fresh peaches, these healthy and delicious popsicles are simple, refreshing, and so fun to make.

brown sugar peach cake

This easy recipe that starts with a boxed cake mix is one of my most popular recipes with readers, and I’m not surprised! Fresh peaches are folded into the cake batter, and an utterly amazing crackly brown sugar frosting gets poured over the whole thing. It’s the best thing to bring to potlucks and summer parties.

easy peach cobbler

Peach cobbler might just be queen of summer fruit desserts ~ better than all the slumps, grunts, and betties combined! It has something to do with that crunchy/cakey/biscuit-y topping, and a lot to do with the peaches.

grilled chicken with peach jalapeno salsa

When high peach season hits we’re having them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, too. The sweetness of fresh peaches makes an amazing salsa paired with jalapeño, red onion, and lime. Over fish, over grilled chicken, with shrimp tacos, you name it, and when all else fails, crack open a bag of chips!

white peach frangipane galette

Galettes are pies’ easier, more relaxed cousins…they’re more user friendly, too. We make galettes with apples and berries, but this one is extra special because it starts with a layer of almond frangipane that adds a rich, fragrant flavor note to the whole thing. Did you notice those gorgeous white peaches? Never pass them up!


old fashioned spiced peaches

These are truly old fashioned, I don’t know if anyone does this anymore. We make them at the end of summer and then freeze or can the jars so we can add a little sunshine to fall and holiday meals.

Juicy nuggets of fresh peach mingle with warm fall spices in these perfect end-of-summer muffins. Toasted walnuts add a delicious crunch.

These divine shortbread crumble bars won’t disappoint. They’re one of my personal favorite desserts on the site, in no small part due to those fragrant white peaches. Just looking at these bars makes my mouth water.

peach butter

If you make no other peach recipe this summer, be sure to make a batch of peach butter. Make lots so you can stash some in the freezer and thank yourself all winter long.


gluten free spiced peach crisp

The number one very first thing I make with any great summer fruit is an easy crisp or crumble. Sometimes I’ll just make a single serving (which is easy cause I keep a stash of crumble topping in my freezer.)

summer peach and basil sangria

Juicy peaches make great sangria, just let them hang out in some sauvignon blanc for a while to marry the flavors. The riper the peaches the better for this classic pitcher cocktail.

    Have you made Peach Caprese? In my opinion it is better than the Tomato Caprese. Sliced peaches with slices of mozzarella topped with Balsamic syrup and torn basil. Delicious!
