Happy Friday! What are you up to this weekend? We are just hanging out in NYC and I couldn’t be happier! I feel like we haven’t had a relaxing weekend in the city all summer, so I am excited to just chill! And bake. Lots of baking on the agenda! And if you are looking for something delicious and summery to bake this weekend, might I suggest this Mixed Berry Galette? It is one of my absolute favorite summer desserts.

You might remember this Rustic Strawberry Peach Tart from last year. It was one of the best things I made all summer long! My Mixed Berry Galette is basically the exact same thing, except with a different filling! I decided to change the name to make it sound fancy – but don’t let the fancy name fool you. This couldn’t be easier to make!

Happy Friday! Labor Day Weekend is so bittersweet. I love having a day off work, the promise of my favorite season ahead, and Notre Dame football starting tomorrow (!). But on the other hand, it means the end of summer which is always kind of sad. So to send summer off in style I drank a bottle of Rosé with my friends last night and made baked blueberry donuts for you – because nothing says summer to me more than fresh berries! And Rosé.

Also, today marks the year anniversary of the Mystery Dish group!! I joined the group late, but I still get to celebrate with them, right?! We are giving away a copy of two fabulous cookbooks – Luca Manfe’s My Italian Kitchen and Christina Ha’s Recipes from My Home Kitchen – scroll to the bottom and enter to win!

First let me start out by saying don’t forget to enter my giveaway for an awesome basket of Nielsen-Massey products! The giveaway closes tonight! Click here and scroll down to the bottom to enter.

And now on to this beauty – my Rustic Strawberry Peach Tart. Also called a freeform tart or a galette. It is one of the best things I have ever made and definitely my favorite thing of the summer. It is similar to pie, but the crust is so simple to make, and it is a little bit sweeter than traditional pie crust. It almost reminds me of a sugar cookie crust, stuffed with delicious fruit. Can’t go wrong with that!
