Fresh Salsa (Pico de Gallo)

It’s that time of the year again, where your calendar is filling up with BBQs and fun plans with friends and family!  With that, comes the slight pressure of figuring out what dish to bring.  Ahh!  Memorial Day passed recently and I was trying to figure out what dish to bring to a friend’s BBQ when I had the urge to make fresh salsa.  I scoured through my fridge and found all of the ingredients readily available, so that’s what I’m going to share with you all today! ūüôā Continue reading

5-Minute Artisan Bread

I have a confession…  The last few weeks I’ve been obsessed with watching the Great British Baking Show on Netflix.  Not just the actual show though, but the Masterclass series where the judges, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, bake their interpretations of the challenges from the show.  (Didn’t know there was a Masterclass series, eh?  Well, you’re welcome.)

To be honest, it was something that I originally started to help pass the time while recovering, however it’s actually SUPER fascinating!  All of those baked cakes, torts and breads. (Drool…) It actually reinvigorated my love of baking and got me itching to make a homemade artisan bread!  Which is the recipe I bring to you all today!  Continue reading
