Blueberry ripple ice cream

Blueberry ripple ice cream is the perfect tangy and yet addictive way to cool down this summer or if you need a treat then this recipe is for you. It's been crazy busy and hot these past few weeks and a bowl of this ice cream seems to cure all of my worries. It's tangy, smooth, and soothing, everything that I need my ice cream to be these days.

Baked feta Israeli couscous salad is s delicious spin on a classic chickpea greek salad, it's so scrumptious and fresh and is the perfect side or main dish for a light lunch or dinner.

Ratatouille tart

Ratatouille tart is the perfect ending to summer. The fresh tomatoes are in abundance right now and it's so hard to believe that summer is coming to an end. I totally love tomatoes and I have made a few versions of a tomato tart, but this version is very french inspired. Ratatouille is a typical french dish that is found as a side to various dishes.

Strawberry tahini caramel slices 

Strawberry tahini caramel slices is a dessert that I have been craving to make since summer has started. We left for SA right at the beginning of summer and now at the end I finaly get around to making these slices. Okey, so these dessert slices turned out better than I thought. My mother made a strawberry tart close to this one, and I hope I get to make the actual tart version too, but for now these jammy bars of goodness will have to do.

Apricot Crunchies (V)

Apricot crunchies are such an amazing recipe that reminds me so much of the original recipe. I used to love these oaty squares, hardly knowing how much butter and sugar were in them. So I wanted to make these since forever and I am so happy I did, these past weeks has been a teeny bit tough. These bars are lifesavers!

Chocolate fudge cake

Chocolate fudge cake recipe is here just in time for the weekend. Feels like I have missed summer this year. The mornings are cool and the last heatstroke has passed. I see notes of Autumn around the corner with bursting orange pumpkins to be seen. Still I want to stay here a bit longer, but such is life right every season brings new treasures.

Rustic tomato galette is the abundance of summer in one bite. The juicy plum tomatoes are glossy and super sweet. And not only are they perfectly perfect on their own, but ever so much enhances the flavor of the dishes they are added too. This rustic galette is just that, the perfect flavors mixed together in a crusty seedy pie base.
