Things you stumble upon...

So of course while cleaning, you stumble across a few things. We have tons of cook books and recipes. We really enjoy William Sonoma's cook books. We have a few of on soups, brunch, spanish foods, korean, the list goes on. Since being pregnant, I haven't been able to sit and have a glass of wine with my husband, but hey that doesnt matter at this point. I plan on going back to doing those simple things with my husband. (I've never been a big drinker) but a glass of wine on occassion is fine with me. I came across this recipe for a Peach and Muscat Granita, it looks delicious! We once made a coffee granita, which was to die for. Very smooth, with a little bit of irish cream, just wish we would have made enough because it was so good.

Peach and Muscat Granita

4 cups sliced peaches (about 2 pounds)
1 (375-ml) bottle Muscat wine
3 cups water, divided
3/4 cup sugar
Combine peaches and wine in a food processor or blender; process until smooth. Strain peach mixture through a sieve into a large bowl; discard solids.

Combine 1 cup water and sugar in a small saucepan; bring to a boil, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat; stir in 2 cups water.

Combine peach mixture and sugar mixture in a 13 x 9-inch baking dish, stirring with a whisk. Freeze 6 hours or until firm, stirring twice during first 2 hours
