Since starting on this food photography, recipe development, and blogging journey, I’ve had my fair share of doubts and insecurities. Seeing others on this journey is inspiring, yet somehow very nerve racking. Mostly because they’re work is SO good and they seem to effortlessly produce amazing content. Hello, practice. I keep telling myself that they’ve all started where I have and that seems to help keep me on track.

I am lucky to have friends, family, and a loving partner who support my every move. I was gifted the most beautiful cookbook featuring recipes and photography from two of my inspirations, Sarah Waldman and Elizabeth Cecil. If you haven’t checked out their work, you should. Sarah’s recipes are delicious yet approachable and Elizabeth’s photography and use of shadows is nothing less than stunning.

Feeding a Family has given me endless amounts of inspiration – both in cooking and in photography – I hope you can find some today, too.

Oh, Panzanella. I love you. Traditionally made with tomatoes, bread, olive oil, and bread, it embodies summer flavors. For a fun spin, this recipe incorporates juicy ripe peaches. The tomatoes and peaches are a match made in heaven. We served this alongside broiled salmon for a quick, healthy, and seasonal dish.

Ingredients

  • 1 French Baguette torn into 1 inch pieces
  • 1/2 Cup Olive Oil
  • Pinch Salt
  • 2 Cups Cherry Tomatoes sliced
  • 1 Cup Heirloom Tomatoes sliced
  • 3 Large Peaches pitted and sliced
  • 3 Tbsp Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1/4 Tsp Pepper
  • 1 Small Red Onion Thinly sliced
  • 1/2 Cup Basil Chopped
  • 1 Cup Mozarella Chopped

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF

  2. In a large bowl, toss bread with 2 tablespoons olive oil, and sprinkle with salt. Arrange bread on a baking sheet in a single layer. Bake for 20 minutes, stirring halfway, or until golden brown

  3. In a large bowl, toss tomatoes and peaches with pinch of salt. Transfer the tomato-peach mixture to a colander set over a large bowl - to drain excess liquid while bread cooks

  4. When bread is finished, lift colander and set aside. Whisk remaining olive oil, vinegar, and black pepper into the tomato-peach juices. Add the toasted bread pieces, toss, and let soak for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally 

  5. Add tomatoes, peaches, red onion, mozzarella, and basil to the bowl with the bread and toss to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately
