Hola!!

Hola from Barcelona! I am nervous,  very nervous. My wedding is right around he corner. (I’ll post some pictures on Instagram). Yay! I can´t wait, but at the same time I have tons of butterflies in my stomach everyday. I guess it’s natural.

Everyone tells me not to worry, that everything will be fine. Yes, yes…. but when it’s your own wedding, you worry about everything, or at least I do. I had to plan everything from overseas. Thank goodness I have a super mom that helped me a lot with everything. For those that are married, did you have the same feeling on the days before your wedding? I guess so.

Anyway, lets focus on the food. Those summer tomatoes are starting to roll in, more every day. For today, I made a simple and quick Puff Pastry Pizza with Garden Tomatoes. The puff pastry can be either homemade or from the store. I needed something quick today , so store-bought it was! This is a quick recipe that can help you if you have guests at the last minute or you just want to make a simple and quick dinner, appetizer or snack.

Ingredients:

  • 1 sheet puff pastry
  • 2 tablespoons of Dijon Mustard (gives it a nice tang)
  • 3 oz grated Cheddar cheese
  • 1 big tomato
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons oregano  (fresh is the best!)

Preheat the oven to 390 F.

Roll out the puff pastry sheet on a baking sheet. Using a fork, pinch the dough and pre-bake it for about 3  to 5 minutes.

Remove from the oven and spread the Dijon mustard (you just want a thin coat) top it with the cheese and finally the fresh tomato slices.  Season with salt, pepper and oregano.

Serve warm and Bon Profit!

My grandmother it is a great, great cook and I think my love of cooking is because of her. When I was in law school, my favorite breaks (beside going to the gym) were getting into the kitchen and cooking or baking something. I was able to escape the normal daily routine of law school.
