Week two of our season-long garden party Summer Fest 2011 welcomes food and garden bloggers to feature garden-to-table recipes and tips. We’ll help you to enjoy all that this season has to offer. Recently, we dove into the world of eggplants. Now ready for the spotlight: peaches.

Remember mealy stone-fruit from the supermarket this winter? No longer. That sweet, juicy, drip-down-your-chin peach is back in season.

You can always showcase fresh peaches in a crowd-pleasing Peach Cobbler. Paula has a highly rated (over 1,000 reviews) version that is the perfect ending to any summer feast. Plus, it only requires 15 minutes’ prep so there’s plenty of time for you to mingle with guests.

If you’re not a fan of sharing your dessert, try Alton’s Individual Peach Upside-Down Cakes and you’ll have a ramekin filled with peaches, ginger and buttermilk all to yourself.

Skip the oven entirely like Bobby and make his Grilled Peaches with Cinnamon Sugar Butter right on the grill. In just 15 minutes, you’ll have lightly sugar dusted grilled peaches topped with a mint garnish. Take the grilled fruit one step further with Giada’s Grilled Peaches in Wine. Just slice and serve grilled peach wedges in your favorite red or white wine.

Don’t let the sweetness of fresh peaches fool you, they’re good for more than just dessert. Try them in savory dishes like Rachael’s Chicken and Peaches. This 30 Minute Meal combines cooked peaches with chicken breast and thighs with an extra douse of peach sauce.

Peaches also pair well with pork so the next time you throw tenderloins on the grill, serve them with a peach, wine and brown sugar topping like this Rosemary-Mustard Pork with Peaches recipe.
