Food Network Facebook Live Episode 7: Summertime Galette with Heirloom Tomato, Sharp Cheddar + Fresh Thyme

Summertime galette with Heirloom tomatoes, sharp cheddar and fresh thyme

I’m such a sucker for summertime food. From drippy rocket pops to decked out hot dogs on the grill, I melt at the thought of it. Literally. But with all the junk that comes with grill-outs and pool parties, there’s also some super delicious produce that screams of the season, too.

Down here in Florida, tomato season is just beginning and we’re getting the prettiest, tastiest tomatoes we’ve had all year. You might have seen on my insta-story the 10 lbs of organic sun golds that my neighbor brought me a few days ago.

I really wanted a sourdough starter, not because I knew what to do with it, but because it sounded awesome and I like to be optimistic about one day becoming a baking queen.

Coconut Tequila Fish Tacos

My boyfriend, Jeremy, and I have been planning a trip to Mexico for what seems like an eternity. The idea of spending our vacation in tropical paradise surrounded by beautiful blue water, big waves, and most importantly — tacos and tequila — seems like heaven. Continue reading
