I was walking around at the Whole Foods here in Denver yesterday and saw some gorgeous Colorado peaches that were just begging to come home and jump in my blender 🙂
Just being around all of that fresh, seasonal fruit inspires me to try new things, and late August in Colorado is bursting with color and flavor!
It’s great being back in Denver this week – it was SO hot and humid in Austin when I left, and it’s been rainy and cool since I’ve been here. I do love the changing seasons.
Here’s my latest recipe, inspired by beautiful Colorado and these delicious, fresh peaches!
