From Scratch: Coconut Milk

Yes, you can buy coconut milk in cans. Most of the year, this is the cheapest way to acquire good coconut milk. Personally, I prefer the Thai Kitchen brand because it has coconut cream (solidified coconut milk), no additives and good taste where many of the other brands can be watery and bland. However, when coconuts are available, why not make your own? The two Thai coconuts we bought resulted in about 16 ounces of coconut milk plus tasty coconut fluffies to add to pancakes and smoothies for less than the price of 1 can.

Free-Form Peach Galette

Free Form Peach Galette

Galettes.

I’d made one before, but I didn’t like how it came out, so since I knew I had fantastic peaches, I knew I wanted a simple, simple recipe to showcase them. I found a likely contender at Smitten Kitchen, who takes photos that I can only dream of achieving one day.

I made my own adjustments, as always, and the galette came out perfectly. Beautifully golden-brown, not too sweet, extremely flavorful thanks to the ripe peaches, with just enough dark undercurrent to make everything ‘pop’. Free Form Peach Galette

Watermelon-Feta Salad

Watermelon-Feta Salad

It’s summer and to me, that means watermelon.

Juicy, red, sweet and ripe, watermelon is one of the best foods to have in these dry parts. We like to buy the seedless melons and chop them up into easy to grab portions. Sometimes we make a bowl of it and a bowl of popcorn and nosh our way through a movie. Watermelon-Feta Salad
