So, I just had to pop in here today and share a few pictures from our busy weekend. We stayed up late, Friday night (I might should say Saturday morning.), applying adhesive and placing our bathroom tiles.
Cheesecake-Stuffed Peaches, which I found the recipe for in my August 2011 issue of Better Homes and Gardens, and just had to share with you all! Mmmmmm!
6 peaches, halved and pitted (I only had four. Thus, the overflow of yummy goodness :).)
1/4 cup butter, melted
3 Tbsp. cinnamon sugar
1/2 of an 8-oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1-1/2 tsp. vanilla
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a 15x10x1-inch baking pan with parchment paper; set aside. Trim a very thin slice from the round side of each peach half, so halves stand flat on the baking pan. Dip peach halves in melted butter to coat. Arrange peach halves, cut sides up, in prepared pan. Sprinkle cut sides of peaches with cinnamon-sugar; set aside. In a medium mixing bowl beat cream cheese with a mixer on medium speed until smooth. Add sugar, egg yolk, and vanilla. Beat until combined. Spoon cream cheese mixture into peach centers. Bake, uncovered, about 30 minutes or until lightly browned and softened. Serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
Finally, look what arrived in my mailbox today from the sweet Savannah O'Gwynn! I saw these super, fun, scratch and sniff alphas, on her blog, a couple of weeks ago and was in awe. I'd never seen them before, and she was gracious enough to send me a few packages to play with. Thank you so much, Sav! LOVE them! You're the best!
