Peach and Blueberry Crostata

I haven't been posting very much because I've been really busy these last few weeks, but I'm finishing up work soon so I will try to be blogging more soon!

This is a Peach and Blueberry Crostata (from Ina Garten). She actually makes it with raspberries, but we only had blueberries so I used those instead and it was great. Richard says it is one of the best things I've ever made, but he might just be saying that because he loves peaches :)

This morning, Richard surprised me and took me to Gjelina in Venice. It was amazing, seriously one of my new favorite restaurants. This is what we had:

Pizza with burrata, squash blossom, cherry tomato, charmoula

Summer squash, shallots, spinach, cherry tomatoes, sunny eggs

Poached eggs with mushrooms, asparagus, parmesan breadcrumb

Potatoes with parmesan and truffle oil

Butterscotch pot de creme

Farmer's Market


Richard and I made some great blueberry muffins, then decided to use the same base recipe and make up our own flavors. We made milk chocolate chip, blackberry and semi-sweet chocolate chip, and raspberry and white chocolate chip.
