I always thought that summer would stop going by so quickly when I wasn’t in school anymore, but I was wrong. The weather here in North Carolina is going to stay warm for a while still, but we all know that September is the unofficial end of the season.
In an attempt to hold onto summer a little longer, I used one of my favorite summer fruits to make this tasty treat – peaches. I actually pulled this recipe out of Southern Living last summer, but never got around to making it. I decided to make a few small tweaks to turn this recipe into my own!
And now for something completely different – a savory recipe!
There’s a backstory attached to this post, so I’ll start from the beginning. I discovered Julie of Willow Bird Baking through LiveJournal (yes, that’s still a thing), and at first I just enjoyed her recipes. Then, I realized that she lives near me! I immediately emailed her and asked if she would be interested in baking together.
I was thrilled when she responded that she would love to meet up with me! Unfortunately, it took a long time for our schedules to match up, but we finally made it happen this past weekend! Now, here’s the part where I explain how the savory recipe fits into the mix.
I bought bananas to make these special healthy cookies that my Grandmother loves to mail to her, and I bought some extra bananas to do something else with. So I was searching Pinterest for banana recipes (follow me!), and I spotted banana bread scones, which I thought sounded genius.
