Easy Rustic Tomato & Caramelized Onion Galette

This easy & rustic tomato galette is just the kind of thing that is so simple it's sophisticated. It takes minutes to assemble but you'll want to allow time to roast those tomatoes.

We’re finally getting some cool days and that means the tomatoes in our little garden will be slowing down. I snuck a few to make this very easy Rustic Tomato & Cararmelized Onion Galette.

Cranberry Rosemary Cheese Spread

Cranberry Rosemary Cheese Spread: This spread has a little sweetness to it which bounces off the cranberry and rosemary flavors.

Thanks to my sister for finding this wonderful creamy, tangy spread that’s a bit different and perfect for the Holidays! The dried fruit makes it festive and adds a little sweetness and that flavor just bounces off the savory rosemary and garlic.

Arugula, Goat Cheese & Beet Salad

This is one gorgeous salad with the goat cheese & beets & home made balsamic

Have I ever told you I’m wild about Beets? We had a rough start, beets and I did, way back in elementary school. Canned beets, blech! But garden fresh beets? They’re another story altogether. So if you haven’t had beets in awhile, “…all I’ma sayin’ is give beets a chance…” ♬

Taphouse Salad with Roasted Tomatoes, Mushrooms & Smashburger

This spectacular salad was stolen – or at least the idea of it was. This is my version of a Taphouse Salad, inspired by a beer pub in Sioux Falls, Taphouse 41. First of all, I never would have thought to order such a thing – my Dad did. Then I salivated over his meal while I ate mine.

The Vinaigrette is so good you'll want to drink it!!

Some of you (yes, you know who you are, baby sis and big bro!) may have heard me waxing on poetically about the humble beet. I love them and am always looking for ways to add them in to my diet when they’re available at the grocery or farmer’s market.
