I love galettes for their simplicity and beauty. If you ever have fruit that is about to go bad, a galette is easy to make. I bought a whole bunch of nectarines from Costco and they were ripening way too fast to eat. So a galette seemed in order. I love the flavor of nectarines and blackberries together. The juices that run are unbelievably beautiful and tasty. I adapted this from a Smitten Kitchen and Bon Appetit recipe. Enjoy!Read More
Cheese Danishes remind me of my father. Any pastry with cream cheese, he would order it. I found myself drawn to the same flavor as I got older. I had some puff pastry dough in my freezer that was telling me I should use it before it went bad. So by digging around and finding cream cheese, frozen blackberries and lemon, I came up with this beautiful and delicious Sunday stunner.Read More
I had currants and didn't know what to do with them. I love the tart taste of currants and I thought adding them to a blueberry muffin recipe would work and they did. My husband and I loved these. Enjoy!
