Happy Birthday!

Today, my blog turns one year old!

What a wonderful year it has been!

I have met great food bloggers and food aficionados in the past year.  Each one of the bloggers are super nice human beings with so much limitless talent.  They have taught me so much about food, running a business, promoting my product and above all, how to be a good person.

As a result, I stand here before you, a better person today.  I would like to thank everyone for making  this a successful year for me and this blog.

To thank all of you, I present a colorful tomato dish that you will love to make and enjoy eating.

This dish is one of my all time favorite dishes to make.  I took all the best tomatoes I could find and added them to this recipe.  This includes Yellow tomatoes, plum tomatoes and beefsteak tomatoes.  The yellow tomato provides a wonderful layer of taste and color.

On many movie nights, this tomato galette is the dinner meal to enjoy. It is so much better than ordering pizza, plus you don’t have to tip the delivery person.

Sometimes, the tomato galette is referred to as a tomato tart.  The difference is delicious sweet potatoes.  They make the base of the galette, along with the tomatoes.

To keep it vegan friendly, I decided not to use any cheese in the galette.  However, if you want to try cheese, the best type would be goat cheese.  For vegans, try this spabettie’s recipe for making vegan goat cheese.  It is very easy to make and offsets the sweet potatoes perfectly.

Instead of going for a store bought version, I decided to make my own pie crust recipe.  My recipe doesn’t use shortening, but, you can substitute it for the whipping cream.

  1. One more think I am following you now because I do not like tomatoes and I know they are so good for you so I am hoping you can help me find a ways to start eating and liking them besides in tomato sauce and ketchup. I can be healthier if I start to eat them so many good things about them I like them in sauce even in chunks but they must be hot because cold tomatoes is something I just really do not like. I however will try your recipes my husband loves them …ugh help!

    1. Thank you, Hollywood K. I always suggest to people that they start out with eating cherry tomatoes. There is nothing quite like getting the taste of it directly. Eventually, move over to plum tomatoes. However, if you have a hard time with tomatoes, start with munching on Sun-dried tomatoes. Once you have developed a palette for it, you will be able to get used to cherry tomatoes slowly. Let me know how it works out for you. I would love to see you eating cherry tomatoes by the end of the year.

  2. Happy Blog-a-versary! I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than with this gorgeous and tasty looking galette! You’re an inspiration to us all with all that you’ve accomplished in just one year!

  3. Rini…first congrats on your 1 year Bloggiversary! I am shocked you have only been blogging for a year! Your posts are so well written, informative and entertaining…I thought you have been blogging for much longer! Your tomato galette is absolutely stunning! I love the combination of flavors, especially the use of sweet potatoes. I am excited that Florida’s farmers’ market season will soon be in full “bloom” as I know local tomatoes and sweet potatoes will make this galette even more incredible. Thank you so much for sharing another wonderful recipe!

    1. Thank you so much, Linda. You are very nice and your compliments mean so much to me. You have been very supportive in this year and I appreciate it very much. If my blog is great, it is only because I have great role models like yourself. You have been an inspiration to me. I hope I can be supportive of you too.
