| APPETIZERS, DINNER, GLUTEN FREE, POTATOES, SIDE, WHOLE30

If you’re looking for a striking side dish or appetizer that will impress your guests, try these mini hasselback potatoes with mustard sauce. The first time I made these a few weeks ago I was doing an Instagram Live video and accidentally called them Hasselhoffs and that caught on and now that’s what I call them, jokingly. These would be perfect for any summer party appetizer, lunch or dinner side.mini hasselback potatoes with mustard sauceThese are my new favorite to serve as a side dish with meat, fish or other veggies. I also think these make an excellent appetizer for a party, game day, or any other event. I made them for a birthday party we went to this afternoon and they were a hit. It was nice to have something different on the appetizer table for sure.

CHERRY, ALMOND & CARDAMOM GALETTE

| BAKING, DESSERTS, FRUIT, SWEET

Lets start the week on a sweet note, shall we? How excited are you for summer time and all the summer berries and stone fruit showing up at the farms and stores? I know I am. Also this cherry cardamom galette is one of my favorite summertime things to bake.
So glad that I can go shopping at my local Fred Meyer and buy all the freshest organic cherries, stone fruit and berries for such a good price. I love that they make it accessible for their customers to buy organic. Perfect way to use them up and make galettes. The imperfectly shaped, but ohh so delicious dessert that will make you go back for another slice. One of my favorite stone fruits are CHERRIES. How can you resist the sweet red fruit that will surely stain your hands while you pit them for this dessert… but I promise you will be ok.
