PEACH ALMOND HONEY SHAKE


Utah is known for both honey and peaches. We picked our peaches up at Liberty Heights Fresh, just down the road from our humble abode. We love this local emphasized market, Utah peaches and Utah honey. This simple shake, highlights all three. 

makes 1

you'll need..


2 ripe peaches, sliced and frozen
1/2 banana, frozen
1/4 cup almonds, soaked
1 big tablespoon raw local honey
1 cup filtered water 
pinch of Utah Real Salt
to do..


Soak almonds overnight in plenty of water, drain and rinse in the morning.
This shake is like making homemade almond milk.
Not straining the almond pulp, adds extra fiber and texture.

To make shake, combine ingredients in high-speed blender, 

and blend until creamy and smooth. 
Serve in chilled glass.

MYSTIC HOT SPRINGS







On a whim, we journeyed south on a hippy pilgrimage. After driving through a summer rainstorm and a few old towns, we found ourselves indulging in a midnight hot spring soak. Arriving at night on a full moon's eve, added to the mystique. 

We had the tubs to ourselves and the strikes of lightning illuminated our foreign surroundings. The natural thing to follow a midnight soak, was a sunrise soak as well. During the summer these are the coolest times to enjoy the hot bathes and they are open 24 hours!

The owner is a bit of a collector and you can explore the nooks of the property for ages. Mystic Hot Springs is s true diamond in the ruff.

TOMATO TOAST


We LOVE toast, the crunchy sourdough with melted garlic, fresh tomato and basil is an ideal summer snack. Make this dish in the peak of tomato season and you'll be hooked.

makes 5-6 full size toasts

you'll need..

good sourdough bread (we use local Crumb Brothers sourdough)
2 medium heirloom tomatoes
small bundle of basil
flaky sea salt
cracked pepper
2-3 garlic cloves, for rubbing on toast
extra virgin olive oil, for drizzling on toast

to do..

Slice and toast sourdough bread on a dry cast iron grill pan.
Grill both sides and remove from pan. While hot, rub with a garlic clove. The
garlic will melt into the toast. Drizzle with olive oil and season with sea salt and cracked pepper.

Add slices of local ripe tomatoes and a few basil leaves.

Finish with flaky salt, cracked pepper and a drizzle of olive oil.

DONUT FALLS | BIG COTTONWOOD CANYON



On a hikeabout in Big Cottonwood Canyon, we ventured to Donut Falls. We hiked it and liked it. We're looking forward to heading back when the leaves change, and begin to carpet the canyon floor. This is an easy short hike to the falls, but can be a bit tricky to climb up once you get there.

Make sure to vear left 1/2 way up the mound of rocks, to find the cave opening. If you want to explore the cave wear your water shoes! The best part of hiking is the snacks, we bought the following goodies at Trader Joe's; a couple peaches, kale chips, freeze dried raspberries and trail mix.

Directions:
Take the I-215, exit 6200 S. Follow signs to Big Cottonwood Canyon. Heading up Big Cottonwood Canyon Rd. make a right onto Jordan Pines Rd. Head straight, continuing onto a dirt road, for about a mile. The trailhead is there, with plenty of parking and a loo. There are no dogs allowed in this canyon, because it is a watershed.
