Home Cookin': Puff-Pastry Galettes

I have a weakness for food blogs. My best friend, Lexy — an editor of cookbooks, among other things — was visiting this weekend and introduced me to a beautiful one called The Forest Feast. The woman behind the blog, Erin Gleeson, is a former food photographer who lives in a cabin in the woods of Northern California. Her site is a collection of what she calls "photographic recipe illustrations," in which she writes, types and paints recipes on top of her beautiful photographs.

The mostly vegetarian fare Gleeson creates is styled impeccably — like this salad, in which a slab of watermelon becomes a plate atop which mozarella, herbs and nuts are piled. Still, most of the recipes look quite simple to make.

As I scrolled through the site, I stopped and swooned over a picture of a yellow-squash galette. Not only did the savory tart look beautiful, but I knew it would be a perfect way to use the farm-fresh baby zucchini, squash and cherry tomatoes I had just bought at the farmers market.
