Apple Puff Pastry Galette

The other week I really wanted to have some dessert, but did not have the energy to get into full blown baking mode. I had some apples at home and a box of puff pastry in the freezer so I knew straight away I wanted to make something using those ingredients. In the past my sister has made savory galettes with puff pastry when she hasn't had time to make the dough from scratch, so I figured I'd do the same. I found an Ina Garten recipe for apple crostata and used that as a base for flavoring the galette. The result was delicious and this dessert got rave reviews from everyone who tried it. It goes great with a cup of coffee, tea, or cider.

Arugula and Chopped Fennel Salad

It wasn't until this past summer that I realized how much I love adding finely chopped fennel to my salads. I first discovered this type of salad when I was visiting my grandmother and have been a fan ever since. When the fennel is chopped, the rough texture can be avoided but the flavor can still be enjoyed. I made this for a friend who claims to dislike fennel and she loved the salad. You don't need to use arugula for this salad, the fennel will go well with most greens.
