Hello, friends. How are you all doing?

Can you believe we’re already touching the end of July? Does that mean this summer is really ending soon? Where did all these warm and hot days go?

Yesterday, it was warm enough to wear pretty summer dresses and sandals, and today it is cold again. Sun’s not shining at all — how is this even possible?

I had so many plans for this last week of holidays, but it’s gonna be cold for at least the coming 3 days. Forecast tells that from Thursday until Saturday it’s gonna be warm again, so I am just keeping my fingers crossed.

I certainly don’t want summer to go. I wanted to share this post before summer ends while the peach season is still on. You won’t believe this that this year I have only made a couple of peach dishes. But this year again, I so want to make all these fantastic mouth watering peach recipes once again which I have shared earlier. Here are some of those:

Peach Chocolate Eggless Brownies

No Churn Peach Blueberry Ice-Cream

Instant Peach Jalebi Topped with Whipped Cream and Pistachio

No-Bake Peach Gingerbread Cheesecake Parfait

Black Eyed Bean Zucchini Peach Curry

Whole-wheat Peach Mushroom Pizza with Feta and Fresh Basil

Caramelized Peach Pesto Tart with Blueberries and Pistachio

It’s not like that this year I didn’t bring these beauties home, but the reason for not making many peach recipes this year is there is one more peach and melon lover in my family. How so? Let me explain.

Well, whenever I buy peaches, she makes sure to eat them as a fruit and I join her. I so love that peachy, summery sweetness. SO YUM. And that’s why at the end of our peach eating-spree, I am never left with enough of them for any recipes. But still somehow, away from the prying eyes, I managed to save some this time, and managed to make this awesome Peach Bruschetta with Whipped Ricotta and Zucchini.

The most thing I love about this appetizer is that it comes together quickly. So when you are in hurry and can’t decide what appetizer you should make for summer get togethers, then this bruschetta can rescue you. It has a nice balance of awesome summery flavors and textures.

Just imagine, the classic crunchy bread, perfect sweet salty and peppery grilled peaches, creamy whipped ricotta cheese, grilled zucchini, roasted peanuts and a drizzle of honey or balsamic glaze and the touch of basil in every single bite. Mmmmm, for me these overpowering summery flavors are so divine. They are appetizers, but I also like to enjoy them as a light summer meal.

So what happens when you combine grilled peaches with ricotta and zucchini? Magic happens. If you love peaches like me, then this is a must try recipe for you. My family is so obsessed with these beauties; they have been bribing me with massages to make them every Friday. And I make sure to take full advantage of this bribing proposal. Well, why not? You don’t get such awesome offers often. 😉 So you can say that this is a staple at my home this summer.
