Sweet & Seasonal

Fast Fash is going to be pretty sporadic until June because I’m so extremely busy. Having said that I’m hopping on when I can. 

When I cook or bake I have so much fun making things that are seasonal. In this case it’s all about the Strawberru Rhubarb! I’ve actually never made anything with it before so I was really excited to give it a try. Plus I love me a tart. I made this for Mother’s Day this past Sunday.  

Very Strawberry Tart

 (to make this recipe a little more fast I used pie crust that was already made. But feel free to make your own.)

What You Need: 

3/4 cup sugar

2 tbsp flour

2 cups strawberry

2 cups rhubarb

1 tbsp lemon juice  

What You Do: 

Preheat oven to 350. Press your dough into your tart pan, make a few pricks at the bottom, and then put it in the freezer for 10-15 minutes. While that’s in there, mix everything else together in a bowl. Once the tart is ready to come out of the freezer fill it wit your strawberry mixture. In a small bowl mix 1/3 cup of oats, 1 tbsp flour, and five tbsp butter and sprinkle on top of tart. Then just pop it in the oven for about 50 minutes.

Brunch, Baby, Brunch

My Slow Down Sunday is BACK! Sunday's are for relaxing and mimosas and brunch! Thats my motto and since wedding season is quickly approaching I am really taking in two day weekends while I can. Brunch food is hands down the best food ever so I'm sharing with you this epic and easy crowd pleasing recipe.

3 tbsp butter

6 large eggs

1/2 pound sausage 

1 cup cheese of your choice

White Sauce: 

1/4 cup low fat mayo

1/2 light sour cream

1 tsp lemon juice

1/2 tsp mustard

Yellow Sauce: 

1/2 cup heavy whipping cream

1/2 cup milk

add cheese until it is smooth and mixed (I used cheddar)

dash garlic salt

What you do:

Preheat your oven to 350

- Cook meat and eggs

- Cut your biscuits into fourths and add to a large freezer bag with melted butter

- Add the cooked eggs and meat and shake around to combine everything

Believe me when I say this is delicious, lopsided yes, but delicious nonetheless. I hope you have a relaxing and fabulous Sunday full of all the things you love..including brunch.  

Cheers! 

Brunch Heaven

This past weekend was pretty busy. It was my first weekend without a wedding since oh I don't know like June.  So between some other shoots,  starting the long process of moving my clothes into the closet and having my best friends birthday brunch, it was a crazy weekend! 

Back to brunch. As I was making my brunch menu I came across this perfect fall brunch salad. It's easy, chic, and not to mention delicious!  

  • 1 romaine heart
  • 1/2 chopped apple
  • 2 pieces crumbled bacon
  • 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 2 Tbsp gorgonzola cheese
  • 1 Tbsp thin sliced red onion

Mix all of this together and simply sprinkle on to your uncut romaine heart. I paired this with a pear and gorgonzola dressing. Perfection!  

Have a chic week!
