I haven’t been as active this past week… Ramadan really has gotten the best of me. Not being able to have any water in this vegas heat can be very draining at times. So I decided to take a little time off of writing to both rest my mind but also create other amazing things for you!
This past week I filmed the how to make brownies without cocoa powder video. It has been one of the most popular recipes on the blog for a couple of months now and I wanted to give you guys every resource necessary to make sure that your brownies turn out incredible too!
In fact, videography used to be my first love in high school… I was obsessed with creating awesome videos out of nothing really. I used my imagination and spent hours editing the clips to make the best video ever for my broadcasting class.
Well… I recently have gotten back to it and I am proud to say that I have been sharing some fun recipe video on…

How to make a blueberry galette
First, start by preheating the oven to 375F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the blueberries, lemon zest, lemon juice, corn starch and the 1/4 cup granulated sugar.
Roll out the store bought pie crust on the parchment lined baking sheet and mount the blueberries in the center or the pie crust leaving about 1-1.5 inches of border.
Fold the edges up on the blueberries, overlapping them as you go. Work gently to make sure that there are no cracks in the crust.
Brush the crust with heavy cream or milk and then sprinkle it with some sugar.
Bake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until the crust is golden brown and the fruit bubbly.
Serve this rustic blueberry galette with a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream .
What to serve with a blueberry galette?
I love my galettes, I love my rustic blueberry galettes even more! They are actually so good that they don’t really need to be served with anything else. But if you want to make it extra fancy and special you can top your beautiful blueberry galette with:
- Whipped cream- Whipped cream is a light and works incredibly with the sweetness of this blueberry galette.
- Ice cream– I’m a lover of warm dessert with a cold topping… That’s why I always top my galettes with ice cream. I like to use vanilla bean ice cream with this galette but many other flavors could work too!
- Toasted nuts– Toasted nuts add an amazing crunchy element to this blueberry galette.
- Greek yogurt and honey– Greek yogurt might sound a little weird but trust me that tanginess complements the blueberries so well. The drizzle of honey helps balance the greek yogurt flavor as well.
Tips for the perfect summer galette
- Make sure your blueberries are dry- Always make sure that your fruits are dry because you can easily have 1-2 tablespoons of water at the bottom of the bowl without knowing it. That extra water that the fruits hold onto after rinsing can throw the whole recipe out of balance. So using a paper towel or a kitchen towel, dry your blueberries before adding them to the bowl.
- Don’t skip the parchment paper– Using parchment paper is not absolutely necessary but I 100% recommend it. When the blueberries cook they will leak a little so to make your life easier, use parchment paper to avoid having to scrub the baking sheet when the juices seep through and burn the pan!
