Oh meeee oh my myyyy.

PEACHESSSS are in season.

If you don’t like peaches, please comment below & help me understand why. I need to know.

Because peaches and summertime go together like peanut butter/jelly, ketchup/mustard, or Pixy/her teepee.

It just kinda works, ya know?

But wait, this recipe has a little back story: the Nanz ( my BFF AKA my grandma ) & I get love to get ‘recipe inspired.

We’ll always talk about how it’s so annoying when we go to restaurants & they use wayyyyy too many flavors. We prefer simple, fresh ingredients that make sense together. Also, we both have a severe hatred toward Bleu cheese ( but really, what the hell is the point to Bleu cheese? ). We like to substitute old Bleu with Gruyère from Switzerland.

Anyway, I’m getting off topic ( weird ).

Last week’s get together included lots of: prosciutto, spicy nuts, summer water AKA rosé, peaches & cornichons, among other things. BTW: if you’ve never had a conishon, you’re seriously missing out on life. Do yourself a huge favor & eat a couple of cornichons AKA gherkins with a little cheese + grapes ( you’ll die. Just die ) )).

What else to add to our summer get together?

Uhhh, duh: Gruyère!!

Pretty much, this is the perfect, easy summer snack/meal. All you do is:

Grill about four peaches ( slice in half ), add a little olive oil, & grill them for about 5 to 10 minutes. While your peaches are grilling, slice some Gruyère cheese. When peaches are done add a slice of cheese, wrap a piece of prosciutto around each peach, add a dabble of arugula, & a squeeze of lemon. Add a side of spicy nuts & tiny pickles for a little flair.

This recipe is seriously my

After our meal was ready, we went out to my balcony, turned on Marvin Gaye, & gossiped with Pixy.

Ultimately, my memories with my grandma are are my absolute favorite so this recipe is super special! I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. The flavors are mouth explosion.

Also, we definitely agreed that it wouldn’t be nearly as tasty with Bleu cheese. Just saying.

  2. Omg Lauryn, this recipe looks like it’s to DIE for!!
    I’m 15 weeks pregnant and am drooling all over this…Looks like it would satisfy all cravings! Must make ASAP!!
    Thx for sharing xo!

  3. Sounds like a great recipe !! I’ll have to try- heads up on the peach recall that was going on last week or so! Trader joes was on the list as well as Costco and a few other retailers- I believe both yellow and white peaches, plums, and nectarines. They were all containing the bacteria listeria.

  4. I pretty much love everything about this.
    Peaches- love
    Prosciutto- Love
    Cheese- LOVE!
    I would worry that I would never get past the prep plate!

    This is on my weekend to do list!


  5. You make me miss my grandma so much! She passed away a couple of years ago. As a former model and a total foodie, she was super into fashion and food and she would have loved to do something like this with me. I love that you spend time with your grandma. It’s a really special thing. <3

    By the way, I recently found out I have an underractive thyroid, and I have to avoid foods with goitrogens. PEACHES are on every list of goitrogenic foods. How's that for a major suck fest? Although supposedly cooking goitrogenic foods kills most of the goitrogens…so maybe I can have grilled peaches? Wah. (What even ARE goitrogens?!)

  6. Mm, this looks amazing! I’ll definitely have to try this out.

    Thanks for being such an inspiration. I just launched my own blog today! I really look up to you as a blogger.

  7. Thanks for the amazing recipe. Made this dish over the weekend at a pool party and it was a huge hit. DELISH times 8000.

  8. These look delicious. I can’t wait to try them. I’m so happy peaches are back in season – they are my favourite, yum!

  9. These look really yummy!
    I can’t miss a chance to have these dishes myself 🙂

  10. This just inspired me to have a “floor picnic” (aka picnic in my apartment) for tonight’s Warriors game!!
