Apple, Cheddar & Thyme Galette

We went apple picking on Saturday. I really enjoy walking trough the orchard and choosing my own fruit. It makes the baking that follows more special somehow.

This year I had a new apple recipe to try out. I found it on the beautiful fresh365.

I will make it again, but next time I will use half as much salt is the recipe calls for (in fact, I may try it without adding any salt at all), because I found the salt pretty overwhelming. I think I generally use less salt in my cooking, so this could just be a personal preference. Anyway, I really enjoyed all of the other flavors, so I do want to give it another try.

It was weird to eat something that looked like dessert, but tasted like dinner. It's definitely a savory dish. I had a lot of fun, and it was my very first time using puff pastry. Overall, I'd call the experience a success!

I also made applesauce, because it's my favorite! New comers, you can check out my gramma's fabulous recipe right here.

Applesauce season is upon us and I made my first batch the other day.
I have been eating all of the luscious summer fruits which are nono for me, but could not resist.
Applesauce is more acceptable and I do love it, too. So bye,bye pineapple, cherries, grapes, melons, I'm back on the wagon.
