The good news: We loved this tart. It was absolutely beautiful and just as tasty. This one could almost fool me into believing I can make pretty desserts. Almost. I made it a few weeks ago after I realized I had purchased a metric ton of berries from Costco (yes, that means camera photos). I had planned on adding some liqueur to the pastry crème but realized that I only had vodka and beer in the house. Exactly. Neither was a tempting possibility. It was not important enough to justify a trip to the store so no added flavor. It would be embarrassing to tell you how quickly we ate it. Just know that we were in no way testing the limits of freshness with this one.
The bad news: (relatively) I have nothing else to say about this one. My creative writing skills haven’t gotten me far in life, and they are tapped out when something turns out like I expected with no obstacles along on the way.
So, what else shall we talk about?
It was 49 degrees here today. May, right?
Do you love Glee as much as I do? I pretend I can sing like Kristin Chenowith until my sons remind me that what is coming out of my mouth does NOT sound like what is going through my head.
I drank more rum in Puerto Rico than I have in this entire millennium. Have you had a mango colada? You should.
Bottom Line: Very good. very easy. very pretty.
Next week: apple apple bread pudding. I must (MUST) put my math skills to work on this one. Those mango coladas? Not calorie free, I understand.
For this week’s recipe visit Cooking with Cristine. Now that I am back in the regular swing of things, I am hoping to actually see some other tarts this week!
