Joining My Local CSA + {Peach Cobbler w/Quinoa}

Many of you who have followed my blog for a long time know that I recently moved to the mountains. It's a bit remote... and by "remote" I mean: 25 min to the grocery store, 25 min to school, 25 min to church --- ok, 25 min to get ANYWHERE!!!  But the closest CSA (community supported agriculture) pick-up used to be over an hour away. I was hesitant to join because of this, BUT they have now opened up a new location, get this... just 25 minutes away :) I will be getting my first delivery in a week! My friend Shannon, who shared her Organic Mountain Berry Muffins with y'all a couple months ago, texted me a few days ago and asked if I wanted to go halfsies on a big batch of organic peaches.  Ummm... YES. That was a silly question! 

Sweet, Juicy, Organic Peaches

I already used them in my {Summer Quinoa Salad} but was most excited about using them to make a health(ier) version of Peach Cobbler.  I've officially outdone myself on this one b/c it's over-the-top amazing!!

Sweet, soft, sugar-y peaches intermingled with a cake-like cobbler and topped with vanilla ice cream.

This recipe uses less sugar than traditional cobblers, uses coconut oil instead of butter, and adds in quinoa -- which is a true superfood!

So the only question is, when are you going to make this?!
