  1. Thanks Nina for the recipes. When I lived in Madrid, Spain I made & drank sangria frequently. Not now because I’m diabetic, but the thoughts of sangria is enough to make my mouth remember. Your home is lovely!

  2. Hello! Thank you for this easy recipe. I had to supply a sugar-free dessert to Include in our Thanksgiving dinner so I made this galette using Truvia in place of the sugar and 1 tablespoon unsweetened applesauce/1 tablespoon water in place of apple juice. I then sprinkled a little Truvia on the crust after the egg wash. It turned out very good and was a sweet treat for those who are diabetic. Love your recipes!
