Baked Raspberry Mascarpone Tart {gluten-free}

I’m popping in briefly today to share this easy, gluten-free baked raspberry mascarpone tart that I whipped up the other night. A few of you saw it in my IG stories and asked for the recipe and I’m only too happy to share. It’s late in the season for raspberries, but I found some incredibly flavorful ones from Coke Farm, which is kind of produce royalty, at our co-op. They and an extra container of luscious mascarpone from my friends at Vermont Creamery inspired this tart.

Avocado Tomatillo Salsa {updated}

This verdant spread is like a cross between tomatillo salsa and guacamole. Serve up a batch of avocado tomatillo salsa with a platter of chips and vegetables for dipping, or dollop it on tacos, chilaquiles, enchiladas, or burrito bowls.

This time of summer is always bittersweet. Technically we still have weeks of the season left, but since many schools start back about this time, I keep hearing things like “summer’s over!!!” It always sends me into a panic. Have I eaten enough peaches, nectarines, plums, and tomatoes yet?? NEVER.

Tart Cherry Eton Mess with Poppy Seed Almond Meringues

Tart cherry compote, tangy whipped yogurt, and caramelized crunchy meringue studded with toasted nuts and seeds makes this tart cherry Eton mess an easy summertime dessert winner. 

Tart Cherry Eton Mess with Poppy Seed Almond Meringues-12

Pavlova, Eton Mess, macarons, and other meringue-based desserts are usually on my no-fly list – I almost always find them overly sweet, bland, and texturally lacking. Unfortunately for me, meringues are cheap, easy to make, and naturally gluten-free, so I’m often stuck with the aforementioned sweets as the only dessert option at restaurants and bakeries.

I’m in the middle of a busy week of family visits, video shoots, and being horrified/enraged at our government, but I’m popping in (see what I did there?) to quickly share the recipe for these soothing green matcha mint chip popsicles. The chocolate is for therapy, the matcha is to fuel your fight for justice, and the mint will hopefully cool the burning hot rage that bubbles up inside. (And if you’re looking for a tangible way to help reunite immigrant families, you can donate here.)
