Homemade Ricotta + Broiled Peaches

Last night I managed to make it out to the Farmers Market after two senior portrait sessions and as always it did not disappoint. I came home with an assortment of produce including sweet, delicate peaches. And this my friend is how this perfectly simple summer dessert came to be a breakfast favorite (yes my husband declared it a favorite.) After a gentle dip in a bath of vanilla sugar, I placed halve peaches directly under the broiler for about 5 minutes or as soon as the sugar begins to caramelize. During these brief moments everything seems to slow down and become slightly more beautiful as the sweet smell of broiling peaches fills my home. I decided to take it a step further and make my own ricotta cheese from organic milk. I’ve had an itch to make my own cheese for a while and this recipe here helped a lot! As soon as the peaches are ready top them with a big dollop of your homemade ricotta (if you choose to, otherwise organic store bought is just as delicious.), top with chia seeds and your favorite granola .
