Blueberry Lemon Galette with Labneh Whipped Cream

Recipe for a rustic, free-form blueberry and lemon pie.

Galette is the French term for a flat pastry but I just consider it a nice way of saying lazy pie. As in, I found some beautiful blueberries in the market and I really feel like eating blueberry pie but I really don't feel like dealing with crust crimping. No problem, just make a galette!

Frozen Mint Lychee Daiquiri

Recipe for a rum based cocktail flavored with fresh lychees, mint and elderflower.

I get very happy when each seasonal fruit I love finally appears in the market. The first cherries, mangoes, figs, etc. are all cause for celebration and recipe planning. And lychees definitely belong in that category. I can never resist those little rough looking pinkish orbs.
