I love the peachy flavor of these muffins. The peaches are slightly mashed to release just enough juices, yet, there are still plenty of peach chunks in the muffins to remind you that there are, indeed, peaches in them.

These things are ridiculous, in a very good way! They are so rich and creamy, and with a "these things are calling my name!" combination of super moist brownie and chocolate chip cheesecake.

Sea Scallops with a Jalapeño and Grapefruit Marinade #FishFridayFoodies

These Sea Scallops with a Jalapeño and Grapefruit Marinade are so sweet, tender, and succulent. 

Sea Scallops with a Jalapeño and Grapefruit Marinade

These scallops were fresh, meaty, and dry, meaning they weren't soaked in phosphates to help them stay moist. Both kinds of scallops are perfectly fine, but the dry scallops are much easier to brown and develop a crust.

English Granary-Style No Knead Bread | #BreadBakers

This granary-style no knead bread is a take on a beloved English bread made with a special blend of flours, toasted malted wheat flakes, and barley malt. 

English Granary-Style No Knead Bread

Granary flour is a proprietary product from an English company called Hovis, not available in US stores. The formula in the bread I've made here is an attempt to recreate the multi-grain combination in the Hovis flour.
