You need a sweet treat for your summer get-togethers and here it is! This Strawberry Galette (a flat, rustic/freeform crust) with Blueberries and Sweet Mascarpone Cream (Italian cream cheese found in the deli) is one of those must-make/eat recipes! It’s a cinch to put together, you’ll use those juicy, sweet strawberries that are in season right now and it’s just simply delicious!
I love fresh produce this time of year, don’t you? It just screams ‘healthy’! I’ve always enjoyed the Italian creation of Prosciutto e Melone; a genius combination of salty prosciutto, an Italian dry-cured ham that’s usually wrapped around sweet cantaloupe wedges, but, I wanted to take it a step further by threading them onto skewers along with Ciliengine (translates to small cherry) fresh mozzarella balls, basil leaves and juicy grape tomatoes. Enjoy these Cantaloupe Prosciutto Skewers with Mozzarella and Tomatoes as an appetizer, snack or a light lunch, I promise you’ll love ’em! What a fun way to enjoy cantaloupe now that they’re in season! For more photos and the step-by-step, check out my contribution this month at Pink Heels Pink Truck!
There isn’t a recipe I’ve tried of Giada De Laurentiis’ that I didn’t like, and this one is no exception! It’s perfection on a plate! Her Roasted Vegetables with Chipotle Cream Over Crispy Pita is delicious, clean-eating at it’s best! Skip the pita if need be, the veggie mixture is delightful all by itself! It’s super easy to make, and an awesome way to use up veggies you have on hand. I tweaked the recipe a bit just for that reason.
