Spring Garden Vegetable Galette Recipe with Chevre Cheese

Spring Garden Vegetable Galette Recipe with Chevre Cheese, the perfect easy recipe to make for brunch

Springtime is one of my favorites of the year. The weather is mild, the sun (for the most part) is back in the sky, the days are longer, flowers are blooming, and beautiful produce starts to pop back into rotation. During the warmer months of summer, I crave the freshness of vegetables. It’s often all I want, but spring offers that unique middle. This time of the year is when you still desire something comforting while also wishing to partake in the available fresh produce. For all of those reasons, today I’m sharing a spring garden galette. It is flexible, adaptable to whatever might be in season near you, and it can quickly be served as a main course.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with it, but what if we took the classic grilled cheese a little further?? Nothing too tricky or fussy — just a little bit more grown-up and a lot more fun. This month we are sharing 3 new takes on the classic grilled cheese. There is a little something for everyone. Let’s get into the gooey details.

Easy Lunch Recipe: Baked Sweet Potatoes with Preserved Lemon Sauce

Baked Sweet Potatoes with Preserved Lemon Sauce, easy vegetarian recipe and quick lunch idea perfect for working from home

As we start to settle into 2021 slowly (some slower than others, judging by how long it’s taken Joanna to edit and publish this post!), it’s clear that some things are staying the same for a while. One of my biggest struggles this past year was finding that balance of a quick and somewhat healthy lunch when I am working on projects at home (or when I’m at my full-time job, flying around). One of my favorite, quick eats is baked sweet potatoes, so I’m sharing how I turn them into a delicious, east lunch with a preserved lemon sauce. Sweet potatoes are incredibly versatile, and once they are in the oven, relatively hands-off. Plus, bonus, they tend to please most.

Orange Spice Bûche de Noël (Yule Log Recipe)

Orange Spice Bûche de Noël (Yule Log Recipe) with meringue mushrooms, swiss buttercream, candied cranberries, candied rosemary and more! a fancy and traditional holiday dessert recipe

Well, we did it. We have finally arrived at December. After the year we’ve had, I decided that this month’s recipe should be a decadent treat that I think we all deserve. A dessert that will delight any crowd: an Orange Spice Bûche de Noël (or if you’re feeling a bit more pedestrian, a Yule log recipe). In years past, I have made every kind of complicated holiday dessert or treat imaginable…. gingerbread houses, croquembouche towers, even cream puff swans. Still, nothing has delighted folks quite like the whimsical forestscape of a beautiful Bûche de Noël. While a more traditional Yule log is usually chocolate, I assure you this orange spiced variation will be a delicious break from tradition.

So here’s a fun fact: a traditional coffee cake recipe doesn’t actually call for coffee in it! I’ve always lived under the impression that it does. Turns out that coffee cake is just meant to served alongside a cup of coffee — which I totally get, trust me. Especially now that I’ve become obsessed with my Braun MultiServe coffee maker. In case you missed it, we’ve teamed up on a few posts over on Instagram — but today is all about how to use this well-designed, incredibly versatile coffee maker to whip up a batch of coffee cake muffins.
