Berry Galette

I couldn’t wait to get started on the “bake along” using the book “Baking with Julia.” Last weekend I made what I consider to be a rather decadent Chocolate Chess pie. It is from Jennifer Perillo’s blog “In Jennie’s Kitchen.”

I loved its very chocolatyness and the very flakiness of the crust. But alas, my health-conscious husband thought it was too sweet. Well, we all have our opinions…

So today I made the Berry Galette from “Baking with Julia.” I used the leftover dough from the Chess Pie to make the crust. The results were a wonderful contrast to the Chess Pie — just a little sweet, a little tart and all in all, quite delightful.

Next time I would like to remember to take the pic when the finished dish is at it’s most beautiful, but you get the idea.


I’m a blogger!

OK – I’m going for it! Since I enjoy cooking and eating (not necessarily in that order), I read a number of food blogs. On “Tuesdays with Dorie” they are having a bake along using Dorie Greenspan’s “Baking with Julia” cook book, so I signed up.
One of the requirements was to have a blog so that baking adventures can be posted and shared.
So here I am! And you could be, too. If you’re interested, check out this blog and sign up.
