    I just checked out your Spring Has Come Puff Pie. New Jersey asparagus hasn’t happened just yet but when it does, I will be making your delicious recipe.

  2. I love asparagus! This is a beautiful and delicious galette, Jenna.

  3. Love this beautiful veggie galette Jenna. We are lucky to have an abundance of spring vegetables early in the season.

  4. Love a dish full of spring veggies! I haven’t done a gallette with them, what a great idea. I usually do a quick saute of mixed freshness with a little goat cheese, or a quiche.

  5. I’m making this one for sure, Jenna. All my favorites in one dish! I’ve never made a galette and this looks like the perfect one on which to begin. Thanks!

    I needed to see this today. Our temps went from from low 70’s yesterday to freezing by morning and cold and windy the rest of today. I think it is the sudden change that makes it so hard. So spring vegetables are a welcome sight.

  11. Kari says:

    Looks so good Jenna….now I want to get in the vegetable garden and the kitchen.

  12. Nancy says:

    Oh wow, sometime that I will have to give a go. I have thus pinned it as reference. Visiting from THE HOUSE ON SILVERADO. I would love to know if you may be interested to come and participate and also share your awesome posts at Senior Salon Pit Stop, Monday through Saturday. I would love to see you tomorrow or through the week.

  16. Looks like a yummy recipe. Anything with cream cheese is a winner. A vegetable medley.
