4 Favorite Parties of the Week

What a great week of parties on our site! I tried to pick an eclectic group to show off.

I picked a Brave birthday with such a soulfully beautiful cake, a knights and dragons party that looked like a ton of fun, a basketball 1st birthday with an awesome backdrop (never seen anything like it), and a beautiful peach themed sunset dinner party. Enjoy!

{RECIPE} Grilled Peaches with Greek Yogurt and Honey

I was asked by LG Electronics to share what's in my fridge (check out this picture I took with Instagram). Because it's summer, my fridge is stocked with fruit -- peaches, strawberries, oranges, apples, avocado, watermelon, and tomatoes. I buy all my fruit at the farmer's market.

And what else is in my fridge? Butter, a must! Yogurt (especially Greek), another must!

I wanted to share something I made that's delicious and simple, using what was in my fridge. I decided to grill up some peaches and top them with Greek yogurt. We recently moved and our grill still isn't set up, so I made these using a skillet.

I added vanilla and lemon zest to the yogurt and topped the whole thing with honey. The whole thing turned out sweet and tangy, with a carmelized outside and soft fleshy inside. The best way to describe it... it tastes like summer.

GRILLED PEACHES WITH YOGURT

Ingredients:

(Makes 4 servings)

  • 2 ripe peaches
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt (I used 2% fat)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon zest + extra for garnish
  • 1 tablespoon honey
Directions:

Cut the peaches in half and remove the pits. Melt just enough butter to a coat your skillet over medium low heat. Add the peaches, face down, for about 4-5 minutes. Check periodically, and flip them over when they are nicely caramelized. The more ripe the are, the faster they will brown. Turn the heat down to low and cook for another 5 minutes, or until they soften. You can test with a toothpick. Set them aside and let them cool for a couple minutes while you make the filling.

For the topping, just mix the vanilla and lemon zest into 1 cup of Greek yogurt.

Top the peaches with a spoonful of yogurt. Drizzle on some honey and add a pinch of lemon zest to garnish.

Enjoy!

LG just designed a new super-capacity 3 door French door refridgerator with Door-in-Door, which has an exclusive space for your go-to foods. They're doing a contest on Facebook where you can vote for your favorite go-to fridge foods (yogurt, juiceboxes, mustard, or diet soda) to place in the Door-In-Door.  It's fun, so you should check it out here!

For those quick trips to the fridge, the Door-in-Door is a magnetically sealed section of the refrigerator that allows you to access the door bin without opening the entire refrigerator. Due to the Door-In-Door feature, less cool air escapes when the easy access compartment is opened, keeping cold air in the rest of the fridge, where it matters most. Whether it's a refreshing drink, condiments or a healthy snack, the Door-in-Door is the ideal space for quick access to your family's go-to foods such as canned or bottled drinks, salad dressings and condiments.
