Savory Tomato Galette

Savory Tomato Galette

I don’t usually like to bake or roast fresh garden tomatoes, but I had an intense craving for a savory cheesy tomato galette, so I bought a few pounds of fresh tomatoes, sliced them up, seasoned them with salt and layered them on the most buttery and flakey pastry dough. I added a thin layer of goat cheese under the sliced tomatoes, and them added additional Parmesan cheese in the crust.

Maple Walnut Apple Crisp with Raisins

Maple Walnut Apple Crisp with Raisins

Did I mention that last week I was able to finally perfect my apple crisp while the baby was sleeping? Since the beginning of the summer I've been on a quest for the ultimate apple crisp, which to me means big juicy chunks of apples, a little tart a little sweet, slightly soft with a little crunch, bathed in a thick sweet syrupy liquid topped with a buttery, nutty crumble, but not too crumbly.

The produce is so delicious right now, I thought I would spoil our house guests with a little taste of West Coast summer. If they don't eat all this tart, I am going to have to bring it to a friend's house and hope that it get's devoured then because if I keep it in our fridge, it's just too good to resist.

Cheesy Potato, Corn, and Zucchini Galette

I managed to pull off making another meal using the grill because it is still hot outside. I went to the market today and bought every variety of produce I could find - corn, cherries, zucchini, peaches, raspberries, mushrooms, potatoes etc. I'd been wanting to make a savory galette for a few days now, but contemplated the appropriate techniques for using the grill.

Triple Berry Crumble on the Grill

This crumble was so easy to make. Five minutes tops, minus the cooking time. All you do it cut up the fruit and place it right into the skillet. Mix up the topping in a small bowl, pile it on top of the fruit and then bake. You can even eat it right out of the skillet once cooked. I think I dirtied 3 dishes in the process.
