Have you ever browsed the hashtag #ToastTuesday on Instagram? It’s kind of the best. Every Tuesday, around the world, people eat toast for breakfast and then post a photo of their toast creations on Instagram. Toast is such a trend right now!

Today is not Tuesday. But we’re still talking about toast. Honeyed Ricotta Toast with Berries, to be precise. #ToastThursday?? ūüėČ

These Gluten-Free Lemon Blueberry Ricotta Muffins have pockets of bursty sweet blueberries enclosed in a moist, lemony fresh muffin.

Do you know one of my favourite things about summer? THE FRUIT.

I have a summer fruit addiction. I could consume my weight in fruit every day. My happiest moment this past week was finding a company who will ship me fresh stone fruits from the Okanagan (best fruit growing region out here on the west coast) straight to my door – today I received 10lbs of apricots! Mmmmm… now to decide what to do with them all.

I also just bought a giant box of blueberries from the market last weekend and have been devouring them all week – truly, there are only a handful left. I knew I had to whip up some blueberry muffins – because there’s nothing better than pockets of bursty sweet blueberries enclosed in a moist, lemony fresh muffin.

Breakfast Galette

A cheesy Breakfast Galette wrapped in sour cream pastry with an egg baked onto it - a special weekend brunch!

I have a soft spot in my heart for galettes – the pastry¬†is supposed to¬†look¬†kind of messy, they’re usually filled with¬†fresh seasonal fruit, and they are just so rustic and lovely to look at and taste. In fact, we’re serving fruit galettes as our wedding dessert! So yes I do love them that much.

Here we have another take on the galette Рa Breakfast Galette. Similar idea Рthe recipe uses the same sour cream pastry dough as I make for fruit galettes, but instead of filling the galette with fruit, it is filled with creamy ricotta and mozzarella cheese, and then topped with proscuitto, basil, and a big fat egg.

Savory Ricotta Chive Waffles

Savory Ricotta Chive Waffles - the outsides are crisp while the insides are soft and fluffy, flavoured with a gentle tang of ricotta and burst of oniony chives.

Let’s talk about savory waffles. Savory waffles get no love. They’re the sad cousin¬†of the sweet waffle, who is attention-seeking with her sweetness¬†and colourful berry garnishes, always drowned in maple syrup or fruit compote.

Savory waffles are subtle and understated. Really, you can eat them anywhere you’d eat a piece of toast – and I would suggest that they are even tastier than a piece of toast because you can easily customize their flavour.
