My posting may have been a bit inconsistent during May, but I did get more on track with my cooking. It seems only appropriate that I share my successes with you.
Asparagus and Goat Cheese Galette
I’ve written about this galette before, but after Brian remarked that it is one of his favorite ways to eat asparagus, it seemed the perfect way to use the asparagus I bought at the farmer’s market. It was just as good as I remembered it; I highly recommend making it while there’s still local asparagus available.

Lots of Bread
I finally got over my fears and attempted baking using Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day. I received the book for Christmas but after reading the introduction, it seemed a little too complicated and precise for my liking. But I gave it a shot last week and the results have been awesome. I’ve only tried 2 types of loaves using the master recipe, but it was shockingly easy. I’m super excited to try more of the recipes and then I’ll write a full review.

Forgive me for my lack of photo!
I made this cake as a part of my quarterly duties to provide snacks for after church. I haven’t broken out my Bundt pan in forever and this was the perfect recipe. I loved that it only used ingredients I already had in the house and was so easy to put together. I’m also glad that I saved a couple slices for us, because this disappeared from the snack table almost instantly.
