Grilled Peaches

I love fresh summer fruits!   There is nothing better then being able to go into your yard (or your grandparents yard…in my case) and pick fresh peaches right off the tree.   I remember when I was younger how much I loved going to my grandparents house and pick a bushel of peaches.  We would eat them in lots of

dishes, grill them, make cobbler and we would even can them to last us all year long.

This recipe is so simple and easy.  One of my parts of summer is grilling!   If you haven’t grilled any fruit before then you need to start.   These Grilled Peaches are sweetened with a brown sugar glaze.   Serve with yummy vanilla ice cream and everyone will love them.



Grilled Peaches
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 4-6 peaches
  • ½ cup butter
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  1. Wash peaches and cut along the pit. Lay peaches open and spread butter on the top. Place butter side down on preheated grill on medium/high heat for about 5 minutes. Reduce heat to low and turn over peaches.
  2. In a small bowl combine cinnamon and brown sugar. Sprinkle even amount on top of peaches. Cook for another 12-15 minutes or until peaches are tender. Serve immediately with ice cream.

The Ultimate Zucchini Recipe Roundup

I’m not sure about everyone else but this Summer I can’t keep up with all my zucchini.  I only planted 1 plant this year and im getting tons of zucchini from it.   I have made several recipes and I have been giving Zucchini away.   With plenty more waiting to being picked.

So I go to thinking, since The Weekend Retreat gets lots of great recipes I would gather a few Zucchini Recipes from our parties and make a great Roundup of Zucchini recipes.

With Summer here, that means we are all out spending time with family, having many late nights and often times we are grabbing dinner at the drive-thru.  So in my hopes of trying to get my family to have a more balanced meal than fried food.  I wanted to make one of our favorite meals at home.    Using a few of our favorite Kraft products for a low budget meal!  So how about Ranch Barbecue Chicken Pizza.

These Zucchini Cookies were simply amazing!!!   The best part they are low-fat…can I get a YIPPEE!!   Which is exactly what I need right now.   As of right now my garden has an abundance of Zucchini.   I have never had a zucchini plant produce so much.  I simply can’t keep up with it all so I have been giving some away, freezing and making lots of recipes involving zucchini.   Its awesome, I love watching my garden produce!!

S’more Brownies

One of the best thing about Summer is being able to go camping and all the fun that comes along with Summer.   One of my favorite parts of camping is making S’mores!  Unfortunately this year we will not be able to get out and go camping.  Between my husbands crazy and crappy work schedule and me being 30 weeks pregnant im not really in the mood to sleep on the hard floor and melt in the sun without air conditioning.

I still wanted it to feel like we are camping so during a family barbecue I decided to make these S’more Brownies!
