Martha Mondays - Grilled vanilla peaches

This is my first Martha Monday ,
The first assignment was Grilled vanilla peaches. I was not sure how much photo documenting I should do, but I can adjust as the weeks go on. I'm sure my photos will improve too. Grilling was not a problem, because we usually grill on Sunday nights, since Wade is home and we can all eat together. My problem was it was dark by the time we got back from sunset on the beach (another favorite activity we do on Sundays)

So here it goes.

I was lucky to get some nice Georgia peaches, an advantage living in Florida. I cut the recipe in half (which I often do) because we only have three people in our family. I didn't peel them first, it seemed easier to halve them and the pit came out easy. I thought it would hold up better to the grilling.

I couldn't find my ground cinnamon I keep my spices in stainless steel tins, keeps the light out, but it makes it difficult to see whats in them. I thought I had ground some more when I used it up on my monkey bread. So I got my spice grinder out and after I ground some more, I located a an unmarked tin to put the cinnamon in and when I opened it, cinnamon was inside! At least I wasn't loosing my mind. I added some vanilla bean pulp I had left from when I made the ice cream. Topped with some new course sea salt that I won from The Meadows on twitter.

I did quarter mine because I thought they would grill up quickly and I like thing cinnamon-y. It gave the brown sugar and cinnamon more area to cover. Yum!

It was a delightful dessert! Wade liked it and Maranda ate the peaches separate from the ice cream.

I didn't use my ice cream in the photo, it didn't set up well enough for the picture. I had some today too with a cup of good coffee. It was good cold too.

I hope I gave enough info and I know my time will be cut considerably when I got back to work at school. Please feel free to leave a comment and ask any questions.
I didn't have the magazine so I couldn't see how they were suppose to look!


  1. That looks so good! I'm hungry now.


  2. OMG, that looks divine! I'd love to try that!

  3. That looks sooooooooo darn good....Thanks for sharing...

  4. Looks wonderful! I just bought my peaches and ice cream today so I'll either grill them tonight or tomorrow. Yours really look sooo yummy. Now I can't wait to do mine.

  5. This looks really good. More as I imagined it to look. I am also doing Martha Mondays - but the weather here wasn't good enough for a barbecue. My results are at


  6. Your pictures look fabulous. Makes me want to cook this again. The white peaches I used tasted just as good as the yellow ones they just aren't as brilliant.

  7. Thank you everyone. They are good hot or cold, and were really easy to make.

    Robyn, can't wait to see yours!

  8. Yummy! I love peaches! I've never tried them grilled!
