 Mexican Sweet Corn Cookies

Funky Veggies

Another feisty veggies recipe that just makes me happy! As my recipe collection grows and the more I experiment in the kitchen, the more I realize how versatile vegetables can be. 

These 5 ingredient Mexican sweet corn cookies are just perfect!

For this recipe I’ve used corn flour, so these delicious little treats are also great for gluten free eaters. Delicious with white cheese such as feta crumbled over. Yes, more please!

Grilled Peaches

Grilled Peaches

Sweet!

A sweet summer food dream! Grilled peaches with mascarpone and balsamic glaze. Oh my, delicious!

Nothing says summer like biting into a juicy ripe peach. This favorite summer fruit deserves a turn on the barbecue. The grill brings out the natural juiciness and intensifies the deep summer sweetness of the peaches. One of the easiest ways to impress a backyard full of BBQ friends. 

Serve the grilled peaches as a side dish, in a salad (toss mixed greens and place grilled peach halves all over) or as a delicious summer dessert. Healthy, gluten free, no refined sugar!
