Call it what you will, this dessert is out of control.  I know that holidays always get people in a tizzy, it ends up more stressful than you want. Usually for me it just means I’m working and people who come into the restaurant are mad they have to eat a meal with their family and take it out on me.  So if you go out this Easter weekend and eat with family, at least pretend to like each other? And don’t order dessert.  High tail it out of there and have THIS at home waiting for them instead.  Who doesn’t love some ricotta filling surrounded by pie crust, SURROUNDED. Ugh it’s so simple it’s stupid. And your family will stop talking for a minute, and bask in the glory of your baking skillz. With a z.

Savory Galette | Domestic Batch

I have dubbed this week Galette Week!  You’ll get sweet and savory, big and small, all types of flavors, the sky is the limit! Galettes are a great choice for the summer when rolling out pie dough and keeping it perfect seems nearly impossible in the high summer temperatures.  A galette (or crostata), is a lazy pie.  I made a berry one months ago and it was so easy, it’s a wonder I don’t make them more often. And they don’t always have to be sweet! I’m starting this week with a savory galette, where everything inside is meant for each other, similar to the Stitch Fix outfit in this post.  I received yet another fix where I bought EVERYTHING because it was so spot on.  Two items in my Stitch Fix box went together like gangbusters, just like ricotta, chicken and artichokes. Not convinced? Well carry on and I’ll do my best to prove my point.

The home stretch of Mug Cakes continues. There will be one more after this, then perhaps a Top 5 recap to buy me some time for a new series and then onto a new weekend chapter. My friend Lori suggested replacing Mug Cakes with cocktails, which I’m a big fan of, but I need to stock my bar a little better.  Otherwise, you’re all get gin and tonic recipes every week with an occasional bourbon on the rocks thrown in.
