It feels like a few weeks ago we were ringing in the new year, wondering how 2015 passed so quickly. And now, a new school year is beginning (without me), I’m about to turn 23, and I’ve been graduated from college for over a year. Blah. Things are weird.

Also, what is UP with grocery stores already having Halloween candy out? I refuse to go there when it’s still two month away. Let’s stay stuck in summer for just a teeeensy bit longer. Agreed? [Read more…]

Since I tried making my first galette earlier this year, this irresistible chocolate strawberry one, I’ve been having galettes on the mind rather often. A galette, if you’ve never had one before, is essentially a rustic version of a pie or tart. It has a similar flaky crust that’s rolled out, and it can have a fruity or savory filling, but instead of being placed in a pie dish or tart pan, the edges of the pastry dough are folded up and around the filling, forming a freeform kind-of pie.

After that initial Chocolate Strawberry Galette was such a raging success, I had dreams of a galette that could be dinner – I wanted something savory, full of veggies and cheese. From that, the Spinach Artichoke Galette was made…and subsequently devoured. [Read more…]

They’ve all been on the brain for a while, and this summer I’m determined to make them all actually happen. Croissants took about four years to get checked off my food project bucket list and it will definitely not take that long before the next thing on the list gets a big old check mark next to it.

So what’s coming up? Homemade sourdough made with a starter I made all by myself, homemade kombucha (I’m a little freaked out about the SCOBY though), from-scratch mozzarella, and homemade seasoning salts (I’m kind of a salt dork). They’re all coming soon in my kitchen…as soon as I find an apartment, that is. Let me know if you want them to be documented on the blog! [Read more…]
