Summer Peach Inspired Brunch Menu


As I mentioned, we hosted some friends for brunch a couple of weekends ago.  The table setting was simple and easy (all gathered from my yard) and menu was inspired by the first good summer peaches. 

We started the morning with these Orange, Banana & Peach Smoothies and ended the meal with Peach Sugared Scone "Shortcakes."


Orange, Banana &
Peach Smoothies

2 cups of peaches, sliced
1 banana
2 cups of orange juice

In a blender, combine all ingredients.  Add more oj if it is too thick, and add more banana if it is too thin.  Chill for 30 minutes before serving or serve over ice.



Here is the simple setting that I posted last week - a random assortment of herbs, vines and flowers from our yard in an "organic" style bouquet.




The bacon getting ready to be baked - 325 degrees for 18-22 minutes.  The BEST way to fix bacon.   We've been having our fair share of bacon lately... Bacon, Avocado & Tomato Sandwiches almost everyday for lunch!


White Cheddar & Chive Strata (you might remember it from a brunch we hosted last fall?)

A big fruit platter (not actually pictured here - forgot to take a photo!) that was inspired by this platter (that is pictured...) we had in East Hampton.  I love how they presented the fruit in individual bowls on a copper tray.


And the "dessert," Peach Sugared Scone "Shortcakes" with Vanilla Bean Whipped Cream that I posted about last week.

Thanks for sticking with me this week and last - I've been busy ordering and organizing everything for the new store that will be part of this blog.  Tomorrow I'm doing a photo shoot of some of the new products with new recipes... stay tuned!!

  1. I just made your peach crostata recipe last night and the scones are next on my summer menu. I am looking forward to see your new store.

  2. This looks like the perfect menu for brunches at the beach house. Such a beautiful and scrumptious way to fill everyone up before heading out to the beach for the day!
