End of Summer Light Cooking

End of Summer Light Cooking

So today started out a little bit more interesting than most.  I checked another thing off my 30 Under 30 list– work on my NYC list! Now I know what you are thinking-how many darn lists does this girl have!?  Well, I have a lot!  Anyway, my NYC list is a list of things I want to do in New York, one of which is attend a live audience show, which I did this morning with Live with Kelly and Michael!  Here are some of my photos!!

Well, it being the last day of summer, I thought we should say goodbye to another wonderful season of outdoor fun with a delicious end of summer feast!  On the menu: Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart  (Recipes adapted from Coastal Living September 2012 issue), Lobster and Apple Salad, and Coconut Panna Cotta with Roasted Nectarines.

* Note-I’m still working on my food photography.  If you really want food porn, check out one of my favorite blogs Iowa Girl Eats.

Tomato and Goat Cheese Tart

One pie crust

2 pints of cherry tomatoes (preferably in multi colors!)

One packet of goat cheese

1 tablespoon of EVOO

3 teaspoons of Dijon Mustard

Chopped fresh basil, thyme and chives, plus some thyme for garnish

First start by washing the tomatoes.

Then chop in half.

Combine goat cheese, EVOO, herbs, mustard and a dash of salt and pepper in a bowl.

Mix together and spread onto bottom of pie crust.

Place tomatoes on top of goat cheese mixture.

Top with a pinch of sugar and fresh thyme.

Place in oven and bake at 400 degrees for 25 minutes or until crust is crispy and done.

Check back tomorrow to see the remaining recipes! 🙂

Excellent workout as always. It's challenging, fun and easily one of my favorite workouts!
Fantastic class! Great technique pointers. Always new exercises to challenge oneself!
I am excited to take classes with Brittany in person this summer! I have followed Brittany online for some time. I particularly like the Barre and Pilates workout videos. Her workout techniques reflect current thinking and best practices. She supports all levels of fitness. Definitely worth a try!
Brittany is the BEST. She is inspirational, motivational and innovative. No two classes are ever the same. I'm sad when the summer classes end, but I'm looking forward to checking out her online classes this fall and winter.
My wife and I decided to give Balance Barre Fitness a try and we were not disappointed. We thought the classes would be pretty easy but were surprised at how rigorous they were. The class was great for working on our coordination and core strength. I don't get to many ...
Challenging but FUN! Officially addicted!
