It’s finally the weekend and y’all are in for a treat. I’ve been waiting in anticipation to make this galette and share it on Celine’s Eats! This heirloom cherry tomato and corn galette is literally bursting with fresh summer produce that are in abundance at farmers markets right now.
This galette is so delicious! Another plus is that it’s a free form tart so it’s meant to be rustic and not perfect looking. Nevertheless, it’s naturally beautiful- the bright colors of the tomatoes are enough to make it stunning. « Read the rest of this entry »

I love going to the farmers market on the weekends, even if it means not having the luxury of sleeping in. There is something special about interacting with the people who actually cultivated the produce that you transform into delicious meals or simply snack on. Many times, the produce is harvested just the day before you buy it so it doesn’t get much fresher than that!
When I saw a pint of sour cherries at my local farmers market, I was super excited. I knew I had to buy them since I cannot usually find them in the grocery store and the season for sour cherries is short. I didn’t even know exactly what I was going to do with them but I was up for the challenge. That’s kind of what I like about farmers markets- I go there with a blank canvas and become inspired based on whatever produce looks freshest and is in season.
My first inclination was to make a classic sour cherry pie, but I wasn’t in the mood to make a whole pie, especially since I would be the only one eating it. Instead, I decided to make these cute little hand pies! This way, I could easily share them with my friends. Plus, smaller desserts have less calories so I can eat more of them, right? These hand pies are perfect for people who love a flaky crust and wish they had more of it when eating a regular pie.

Happy Monday! This sweet treat is sure to brighten up your Monday and get your week off to a great start. If you’re still pining after the weekend, you need to make this refreshing, summery tart, stat. It’s the right thing to do.
I am completely loving and taking advantage of the abundance of ripe summer fruits! They’re so delicious, juicy, and sweet by themselves that I run into the dilemma of whether to bake with them or just eat them alone. I think this just means that I need to buy twice the amount so I can have my
cake tart and eat the fruit too.
This tart is the perfect summer pastry. The flavors are refreshing and light so you can enjoy it without feeling weighed down. It is a pleasant after-dinner dessert but also works well as an afternoon treat.
All great tarts begin with a buttery, flaky crust, and this one is no exception. I used Joanne Chang’s recipe for Pâte Sucrée, which is a sweet tart dough typically used in French baking. It is extremely versatile so it can be used with a multitude of scrumptious fillings.
