Rustic Blueberry Star Galette, for Independence Day

Happy Independence Day, Americans! As is always my plan, I made an “all-American pie” — which usually ends up being blueberry. I’ve made galettes before, but if you look carefully, this one is intended to be a mulit-pointed star … aka fireworks. Easy to make, no pie pan necessary. And as always with blueberries, very juicy. Celebrate well!

Strawberry Rhubarb Crumble Bars

‘Tis the season for both fresh local strawberries and rhubarb, so taking advantage of the local, I made my famous (and super easy) crumble bars.

Definitely recommend having a go at these!

Easy Fresh Cherry Cobbler

Here is perhaps the quickest recipe I have ever made for a pie/cobbler: mix 4 ingredients together, sprinkle on cherries (also would work with blueberries) and sugar and bake. Seriously … took all of 10 minutes to assemble, 30 minutes to bake. Imagine: putting this in the oven when you sit down for dinner, and have piping hot cobbler straight out of the oven for dessert. Pass the ice cream!

Banana Bread Doughnuts with Maple Glaze and Walnuts

Hey, it’s National Doughnut Day! (June 2) and for once I actually thought to have the ingredients to make doughnuts in the house on the correct day. These are “healthy”, if there is such a thing… no refined sugar in the them (yes, in the glaze, but the doughnuts themselves only have maple syrup to sweeten). Super delicious straight out of the oven and my flat smells amazing!

Rhubarb Apple Strudel

Whenever I get back from a trip that includes Austria, I have a tendency to want to make strudel. Remember last year? It was the Cherry Chocolate version. This year, I really wanted to make something with rhubarb, but the local strawberries aren’t ripe yet, and they can be a little wet. So I made this Rhubarb Apple version instead. Total deliciousness!
