Strawberry Honey Ginger Galette

So yes, this galette has ginger in it. And yes, that means it’s healthy. Sometimes I just need a WAHBAM, hit-me-in-the-face kind of dessert and I think this is it. We all know and love the humble strawberry, but sometimes she gets lonely all by herself. I introduced her to a new friend in this…
