This summer we have had a ton of these:

Which has led us to blackberry sorbet, blackberry sauce, and finally blackberry cobbler. But, unfortunately I’m not a fan of the gooey fruity cobbler that we grew up with, I love a cakey cobbler. And that is how I discovered Brown Butter Blackberry Cake. I am not ashamed to say that this has been our go to weekend breakfast this month!

Ingredients:

  • 1 Stick of butter
  • 3/4 cups of sugar
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1-2 cups washed blackberries (depending on preference)

To start melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, stir occasionally to make sure that it is cooking evenly. As it darkens you are looking for it to turn a toasty brown color, be careful not to burn. When it has browned take it off the burner and poor into a separate bowl.

Next mix flour, salt, baking powder and sugar. Whisk in milk then add browned butter, whisk everything together and poor into a greased baking dish. Evenly sprinkle blackberries over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until golden on top.

Roasted Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese

Today I’m sharing my all time favorite (and super easy) salad recipe, Roasted Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese. There was a point in my life when I was so obsessed with it that I literally ate this salad for lunch and dinner every single day! I’ve always loved tomatoes, especially when they’re roasted.

These days, I like to have it as a side (as it goes well with almost any dish). If you’re a fan of goat cheese and tomatoes too, you will especially love how quick and easy to make.

Roasted Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese

Ingredients

  • 1 head of Lettuce (I prefer a leafy red lettuce or romaine)
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 4.5oz herbed goat cheese (if you cant find this buy plain and add in oregano, garlic, salt, and pepper)
  • 2 Tbsp Milk
  • 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
  • Salt/Pepper to taste

Roasted Tomato Salad with Goat Cheese2

Instructions: 

Begin by preheating your oven to 400 degrees. Add cherry tomatoes and balsamic vinegar to a glass baking pan, I like to use a smaller size so the tomatoes stay soupy. If i have some handy I will mince a clove of garlic on top, then throw these in the oven for about 20 minutes or until the tomatoes are soft and beginning to pop. they should look like this:

While the tomatoes are roasting cut up salad and divide into bowls, this will make a generous salad for 2 people, but I often serve 4 with it. Combine goat cheese and milk till the goat cheese has softened and divide it onto the top of each salad. When your tomatoes are done divide them and the balsamic vinegar equally into each bowl. Serve immediately!
