Fourth of July Preview: Cake, Galette, and Stuff on the Grill

Thanks for all the great suggestions on what birthday cake I should make for my sister. She has selected carrot cake, and I finally picked a recipe. This is most definitely a “real” cake recipe with flour, butter, sugar, the works. I think the carrots are just in the recipe to make you feel better.

A galette recipe on Smitten Kitchen also caught my eye. I didn’t know what a galette was either, but it calls for more flour and butter plus 3 different kinds of cheese and zucchini for good measure.

Finally, I saw this article on 101 things to grill and was intrigued by many of the suggestions. Grilled beets, grilled bok choy, even fancy grilled cheese. They all look good!

Whatever you do this weekend, enjoy, and I’ll see you Tuesday with a full report.
