French Apple Tart

A delicious yet simple dessert. I found this recipe in a Williams-Sonoma cookbook that I have, but you can find it online here. I didn’t decide to make this last night until right before dinner so to save time I used puff pastry for the crust. The whole thing took under an hour to make and the end result was delicious!!

A New Favorite…

Mache lettuce, bosc pear, toasted hazelnuts, and goat cheese, drizzled very lightly with a white wine vinaigrette. I tried this salad at a restaurant a few weeks ago and fell in love!

Lentil “Meatballs” in a Lemon Pesto Sauce

My husband grew up vegetarian, so it is very rare that I prepare meat at home and honestly I don’t really miss it! It is definitely harder to come up with new things to cook so I am always on the look out for new recipes. I came across this “meatball” recipe last week and the pictures alone instantly convinced me I had to try making it. We had the meatballs with pappardelle pasta and they were delicious! 

*I’ve never been a fan of fennel, but still decided to follow the recipe and add it, but could have done without it  ;)

Gift of Chanel

I have a slight obsession with nail polish. My collection consists mainly of Essie with a few OPI for Sephora, but my dream has always been to have a collection of entirely Chanel nail polishes. This week my sister surprised me with my very first Chanel nail polish!!! I am in love with it and the color is gorgeous!
