I prefer to use frozen spinach and blueberries since they eliminate the need for adding in any extra ice. There are many benefits of each of the ingredients in this smoothie, but the following are some that stood out to me!Continue reading
These candied green blueberries are sweet and tart, and we would call them sweetarts, but that name is already taken… sad.

A galette is a free-form French tart and whether is it is filled with fruits, vegetables, dairy, or meats speaks to the personality of the baker. Galettes are rustically charming and incredibly forgiving to make. Ragged edges? Meh. Uneven folds? That’s okay too! The most important thing is to bake until the filling is gently bubbling and the crust reaches a beautiful golden brown color.
When combining the ingredients of the dough for the galette crust, try to handle it as little as possible. Overworking the dough will cause the development of too much gluten, which will result in an overly elastic dough that will shrink when baked and give you a tough crust instead of the tender, flaky crust that defines the best galettes.
