Sunday Snippets: The Red, White and Blue Edition

Sunday Snippets // The Speckled Palate
Could we all stop for a second and revel over the fact that it is July? Honestly, y'all. I have no idea where this year is going, and it makes me happy and sad... especially since we'll be moving in a little more than a month. It feels like we just got here and are finally settling in, and now, we're going to be uprooted once again. However, this time, we'll be in our destination for a little longer.

Fig Tart

Fig Tart // The Speckled Palate
Figs are in season, and they are so delicious in everything. If you can get your hands on some ripe-from-the-tree figs, make this Fig Tart. The tart starts with sweet tart dough, which is dense and understandably sweet. The sweet tart dough is filled with sticky, slightly sweet fig filling. This tart is perfect for a warm summer's day and a fabulous way to use the fresh fruit.
