Even though we're quickly coming up on Labor Day weekend, I'm taking advantage of the last bits of summer I can grab. There's still plenty of beautiful ripe fruit to be had at the market and the August peaches are sweet and juicy.

For the last few years, late August has meant vacation heaven on the coast of Maine. We know where to stay, where to eat and definitely where to drink. There are always at least a few meals at One Dock and we can't wait to see what specialty cocktail they've added to their menu.

I've been waiting for the August peaches! In some ways, they're a frustrating fruit because they're available in my market all year long but they're not worth eating. Hard as rocks with no flavor or aroma. But there they are, on display, taunting me. August, though, is when the peaches become peachy!

Once again I found myself planning cocktails in the produce aisle. There's always a dazzling array of fruit these days but something usually jumps out. This week, some blood oranges rolled into my basket and demanded to come home with me. So ripe they practically juiced themselves and filled my kitchen with a lovely fragrance.
