cinnamon roasted peaches

Sarah, LO and I had 40 hours in Toronto. We hadn’t gone on a road trip since May 2012, in which we drove to the Jersey Shore (Asbury Park), to see the Bamboozle Festival. Well we went for one reason and that was to see the Foo Fighters. It was MAGICAL!

I enjoyed my time with Sarah as we both lead busy lives. We grew up around the corner from each other and have known one another for 13 years. She also happens to live far enough away now that we have to plan our time together.

I disappointingly showed her the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada. I say disappointingly because after two years, it is still unorganized, understaffed (most the staff seem to not have any ichthyology background if you get a chance to talk to one) and it is overcrowded (they don’t seem to limit the number of people they let in at one time) until the last hour it is open. If you like being shoved by pushy parents and kicked by unruly children go between Open to 6:00 p.m.

The shark tunnel is the saving grace of this facility!

Anyways, onto our actual recipe for today. This is a simple dessert that takes 25 minutes to prep and bake in the oven. They are cinnamon roasted peaches!

Cut them into halves and remove the rock (the pit!). Place them evenly on a baking sheet. You can also layer the baking sheet with tin foil or parchment paper.

Get your cinnamon and honey to add to the tops of the peaches. Use as much or as little as you would like to.

Place in the oven for 20 minutes. Remove and let cool before serving.

I enjoyed this yumstrocity with homemade vanilla ice cream and peanuts. It was delicious and very satisfying!
