In honor of The Gilmore Girls finally coming out on Netflix streaming (and because it's autumn – the perpetual season in Stars Hollow) - it only seemed right to make a sweet dessert.

I was inspired by the following exchange to make an apple tart.

Lorelai: “I can live without the apple tarts.”
Rory: “You've made up songs after eating five of them with lyrics that contradict that last statement. “

It's a little less elaborate than something Chef Sookie St. James might make, but it goes mighty fine with a cup of coffee.

And that's something that's vitally important when you're marathoning The Gilmore Girls.

Life has been remarkably hectic lately, so playing in the kitchen hasn't been much of an option. But when Jedd bought me a beautiful bag of apples, I realized that a galette would make a simple and beautiful dinner.

 

Bonus: It only takes about 10 minutes to pull together if you have store bought pie dough. Or about 30 minutes if you need to make your own.

 

Normally I use lemon water when cutting apples, but using limes instead really made this pop. And I love the combination of cranberries and raisins, but fresh berries would be a fun substitution if you have them kicking around. Particularly blackberries or raspberries. Go wild with what you have!

It's the best of both worlds right now. We still have summer produce, but we're also getting treats from fall. And that includes apples.

 

Really, really, really, beautiful apples.

 

Along with tomatillos.

 

When we got home from the farmers market the other day, Jedd put the tomatillos in one of his bowls and there they've sat next to the apples.

 

It's been like a little subliminal message.

 

“Launie, make salsa. Launie, make salsa. Launie, make salsa.”

 

I really didn't have much of a choice!

 

Honestly I wouldn't have thought of pairing the two, except for the fact that they've – literally – been staring me in the face for three days.

 

I'm happy for that little bit of happenstance, because the salsa is fantastic. It's sweet from the apples, citrusy from the tomatillos, and spicy from the jalapeno and chipotle.

 

Now that it's fall, grab some apples and try it for yourself.

Happy 350th recipe everyone! That's kind of a fun number, so I'm going to post this recipe which is one of my favorites.

 

I love this salad. The hands on time is basically about 5 minutes, and it's deliciously spicy and fresh. It's perfect for lunches (or even lunch boxes) because it's delicious at room temperature.

 

Oh, and it's ridiculously good for you. And inexpensive.

 

I could eat it several days in a row, and sometimes I do.

 

Be right back! I'm off to make another batch.

This time of year (at least where I live), having puff pastry in the freezer is like having half of a meal made before even starting to cook.

 

Just throw something pretty on puff pastry, add some cheese, and (wowza!) dinner's on the coffee table in 30 minutes.

 

And because I hang out at the farmers market with Jedd selling his wares, that means I get to know the vendors. They're nice and generous. Sometimes they slip me extra tomatoes because they know that I'm a tomato geek.

 

As a gesture of goodwill, I bring them scones on chilly days.

 

It's a good relationship.
