Peach Cobbler

Peach cobbler! So I have never had peach cobbler, never made it, and... I think the last time I had a peach was in 5th grade. Anyways this was another instant my boyfriend and I were cooking for several people so we decided to go for it since they are in season. It is quite tasty and the crust is amazing!

Simple Blue Cheese Coleslaw

I have never been a huge fan of coleslaw, but I decided to give this recipe a try specifically for the blue cheese and the small amount of vinegar. And for someone who is on the edge of being anti-cabbage, I really liked this. The blue cheese is just enough so you get a hint of it over the mayo. I highly recommend to toss the coleslaw on top of any BBQ sandwich (in this case a smoked BBQ chicken sandwich).

Grilled Marinated Artichokes with Various Dipping Sauces

If you follow my blog, you know I have a slight obsession with artichokes. This is the first time I have ever marinated or grilled them. They turned out amazing! Definitely going to make these again. And no artichoke is complete without some sort of dipping sauce. I made three different sauces; garlic mayo, garlic herb butter, and a sun dried tomato sauce. All of these sauces are simple to make and add a nice punch to the artichokes. Please note I was cooking these for 40 people so the pictures show a lot more than the recipes actually calls for.

Homemade Whipped Cream

This is one of those recipes where it is so easy and tasty, I don't think I will ever buy pre-made whipped cream again. Whipped cream takes about 5 minutes to make and is delicious!!!

Grilled Lemon Rosemary Chicken Skewers

I know it's not officially summer, but that doesn't mean you can't bust out the grill. Can't say no to grilled chicken.
