The strawberries arranged on top of the tart are a vibrant red and glossy from the jam glaze. An antique cake server, a white plate with a piece of the tart and antique dessert spoons are next to the tart, as well as a few whole and halved strawberries.

We’ve blinked, and it’s nearing the end of May. Which is insane, because it feels like April was only just yesterday and where is the time going? Lately, I feel like I’m always in a hurry, too busy to think, always chasing after things that need doing, while adding another few to my bullet-pointed, highlighter-exhausted to-do list.

But time running aways from us has at least one upside: summer is almost here, and berries are (or will soon be) in season. Berries of all sorts, with their shiny colours and juicy taste and smell of sunshine. To celebrate, let’s make this gluten free strawberry tart.

GLUTEN FREE ZUCCHINI GALETTE WITH FETA CHEESE & CHERRY TOMATOES {gluten, nut & soy free}

This gluten free zucchini galette is almost too good for words. The rosemary pie crust is pure flaky, buttery perfection, and the filling of zucchinis, cherry tomatoes, caramelised onions, feta cheese and herbs is an homage to all things Mediterranean. Super easy to make, this gluten free savoury galette is the perfect thing for a weekend brunch or summer picnic.

A Mediterranean feast.
A celebration of herbs and summer produce.
A flavour and texture explosion.
A gluten free zucchini galette that you’ll want to make again and again.

I love galettes – they possess all of the flaky butteriness and deliciousness of a pie, without the fuss of baking tins and crimping and precision. When it comes to galettes, we’re all about rustic charm – which means a cracked crust here or there, a wonky shape and irregularly arranged filling are not just okay – they’re kinda the norm.

CHOCOLATE DIPPED GLUTEN FREE PEANUT BUTTER COOKIES {gluten & soy free}

20 minutes, 6 ingredients and no baking skills required… to make these gluten free peanut butter cookies. These are 100% some of my all-time favourite cookies, and I’m sure you’ll love them too! Make them extra special (and extra pretty) by dipping them into some dark chocolate.

I’m obsessed with these cookies. I love absolutely everything about them. The flavour. The texture. How they look. That fun criss-crossed pattern you make with a fork. I love making them, the smell coming from the oven when they bake… and best of all, I love eating them.

We all have that one dessert we want to make over and over again, right? And I expected mine to be brownies (because chocolate is my BFF and there is no life without it)… but – no. It’s these gluten free peanut butter cookies, with their crispy caramelised edges and their fudgy nutty centre.

Okay, so… hear me out. Brownies are awesome. Making a kickass vegan cake is the best feeling ever. Marshmallow brownies are the stuff sweet, sweet dreams are made of. It’s all true. But, on a random Tuesday, when you’re still having flashbacks to allthesugar and allthebaking that happened over the weekend… the last thing you want to see is more brownies. Ugh. No.

Plus, balance. The word is thrown around like confetti nowadays. But with all the running around and the stressing out and the (attempted) adulting, balance sounds just about perfect. Therefore: salad.
