This post is about mistakes. We all make them, right?
For instance, this dish? Was supposed to be a Grilled Watermelon and Grilled Peach Caprese. I forgot the cheese. Oops.
I’ve had a lot going on this week. And I love knowing I have all of you, my friends, to talk to. Thank you for being you. I know that every single day I can wake up and talk to all of you. Your blog, my blog, I feel a connection to all of you.
I appreciate each and every one of you.
One of my mistakes: This was supposed to be a Grilled Watermelon and Peach Caprese for Lisa’s Annual Birthday Meat Fest. I forgot the mozzarella. Chris called me out on the lack of cheese when I put it on the table. Lisa gave me a break. She’s awesome like that.
I jack things up like that now and then. I’m glad I’m forgiven. XOXOXO
And this is me being honest. Love y’all!

We are loving this mistake. Accidental dishes are AWESOME most of the times! Grilled peaches are watermelon look so YUMMY! 🙂
Thanks girl! I’m loving grilled fruit right now!

Haha…I’ve totally been there with the mistakes. The worst is when you overcook something and have to completely start over. Or make a cake batter, put it in the oven and then look over to see a key ingredient still sitting on the counter. Been there. Done that. But this mistake doesn’t look all that bad to me…heck, I’d be perfectly happy with this one. Just don’t mention the missing cheese, and I’d never know! 🙂
OMG! I’ve totally made something and later found the key ingredient on the counter! Thanks!
Medha @ Whisk & Shout
I make mistakes alllll the time! Yesterday I had not one, but two baking fails, before I finally managed to bang out some killer blondies. This looks like a delicious mistake 🙂
Vegan baking can be hard, girl! Your recipes always look amazing and I can’t wait to see those blondies!
Jess @ whatjessicabakednext
Love this salad, Rachelle! I totally know where you’re coming from about mistakes – I make far too many all the time with my baking, leaving out vital ingredients etc! I agree with Medha – it looks like a delicious mistake! 😀
Thanks Jess! It sure is hard to recover from mistakes in baking!
Cheyanne @ No Spoon Necessary
Your as close to perfect as a person can get, at least in MY eyes! 🙂 Unfortunately we all do make mistakes, but honestly, this salad looks delicious AS IS! Sometimes mistakes make for a better dish! I’m totally going to be making this- those grilled peaches and watermelon are calling my name! And I happen to have some fresh mozz waiting to be used in the fridge.. so i’ll put that on boy’s but I want mine the beer girl cooks mistake way! Cheers girlfriend! xo
Awwwww, I’m blushing. 🙂 They are sooooo good grilled. I’m addicted to grilled fruit this summer. Beer girl cooks mistake way! LOLOL 🙂 Cheers to you and thanks for the laughs! It’s been a rough week and I really needed this giggle!
Keri @ Fashionable Foods
I do stuff like that ALL the time! Cheese or no cheese, this looks fab. I love the sound of grilled peaches and watermelon with basil and balsamic reduction! What a perfect summer dish!
It really was good both ways! Thanks Keri!
Vineetha @ Mint and Mimosas
I’ve been hearing about grilled watermelon lately. I never would’ve though to try this! Must taste amazingly unique!
You MUST try grilled watermelon! Thanks Vineetha!
Thao @ In Good Flavor
I like it when a mistake turns into a success. These grilled peaches and watermelon look sooo good! Watermelon is my favorite fruit, but I have never had it grilled. Need to give it a try!
Thanks Thao! I love watermelon too. You should totally try it grilled!

I think this is the prettiest and tastiest mistake ever! The grilled peaches and watermelon look perfect – so juicy and sweet ! Love those gorgeous grill marks!
I wish I could eat fruit, solely because I KNOW it would taste DAMN GOOD OFF THE GRILL and when I could eat fruit I was so NOT an adventurous eater! DAMMIT!
You can’t eat fruit? Dang! That’s a total bummer!
Dannii @ Hungry Healthy Happy
Mistakes are what make us human though 🙂
These peaches look perfect to me though, and with the balsamic on top? Yes please!
cali @ cali's cuisine
Mistake? I think not. I tend to call them ‘experiments.’
I like your experiment with omitting the cheese. It certainly made the grilled peaches and watermelon a lighter dish and at a party would be a welcome addition!
Shelby @ Go Eat and Repeat
This looks delicious even without the cheese! And it’s good for you for being a bit creative!
Accidental creativity? I like it! 🙂
karrie @ Tasty Ever After
I never make mistakes, so I have no idea what you are talking about. lol! I love this delicious recipe with or without the cheese and making it next time we grill at the homestead.
Hahaha! Do it, girl!
Dasha @ Amazingly Tasty
I do mistakes like that all the time! I love, love grilled fruit, but I would never have thought of grilling watermelon! Can’t wait to try it!
I hope you like it, Dasha! We do!
Michele @ Two Raspberries

You are totally forgiven! This looks amazing!
Kathleen | Hapa Nom Nom
We all make mistakes in the kitchen. I’m notorious for making a dish and forgetting the main ingredient! Good thing I have a grocery store right down the road 😉 In any event, this looks and sounds like a wonderful dish. I’ve had grilled peaches, but yet to have grilled watermelon. It’s something I’ve been meaning to try, and this looks like a wonderful recipe to sink my teeth into 🙂
Thank goodness for handy grocery stores!
Kennedy Cole| KCole's Creative Corner
You are most certainly forgiven! There’s no need to even apologize for such a gorgeous dish! I can imagine that it would be great with cheese, too, though! Thanks for sharing, Rachelle! 😀
Thanks for the understanding and forgiveness! 🙂
Linda @ Veganosity
Heaven. That’s all. 🙂
Ha! Thanks, friend!
Savita @ ChefDeHome
You know, mistakes and me are best friends 🙂 If outcome is so delicious, it is good to make mistakes once in a while! Isn’t it? love love grilled peaches and all delicious going on here!
Mistakes and I go way back to, my friend. Sometimes it works out!
Kristen @ The Endless Meal
I bought 20 lb of peaches the other day and now need to figure out what to do with them all. I think I’m definitely going to have to grill some!!
You should definitely grill some peaches! They are soooooooo good!
