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!

We are back from our trip! We had the most amazing time – I shared a ton of photos on Instagram. I hope it wasn’t too many…I just couldn’t resist posting all of the gorgeous views and delicious meals! And I can’t wait to tell you more – a Portofino post will be coming soon. But first, let’s have cake.

Thanks to jetlag, I was up super early on Saturday morning and the first thing I wanted to do was bake! I missed the kitchen! I get so much inspiration when I travel, and want to recreate everything that I ate. We saw lots of olive oil cakes and lots of cornmeal in the breads and pastries in Italy, so that is what inspired me to make a Cornmeal Olive Oil Blueberry Cake!

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!

Good morning!  Anyone in the mood for a muffin this morning?  I don’t know about you, but I am in the mood for a muffin just about every morning.  And while I would like chocolate chip or cookie butter to be a part of breakfast every day, my jeans disagree.  So instead, let’s have blueberry muffins!  I used frozen blueberries to make these because the fresh ones are looking pretty weak these days.  But frozen blueberries are good year round, and they actually work better than fresh ones in some recipes.   I like to use these frozen wild blueberries  when I make muffins because they are smaller, but full of great flavor….
