As promised..... Lemon tart

Hmmmm.... Ok, I actually made this last week, but with the crazy work schedule, I didn't have time to post. It came out fantastic if I do say so myself!. This is "the most extraordinary lemon tart" from Dori Greenspan's "Baking..From my Home to Your's". I have found that with all the baking and cookbooks I have, this is my go to. If you have basic baking skills, everything in this book is fool proof...almost. Anyway, it is a work of art, but I have not been able to finish it because the thought of how much butter was used make me want to... I don't even want to think about it. Sometimes those details are better left unknown.

Yellow love

How can one fruit give someone so much joy? When you see the bright yellow flesh, you can't help yourself from feeling happy. Meyer lemons! The intense color, the sweet, fresh citrusy smell they have. I can't wait turn you into a yummy tangy tart. "When life throws you a lemon, turn it into lemon tart!"

Ok, I know it's been a while since I've made a post on this blog..... Partly because I've been busy, and lazy.... Mostly because I feel like no one is out there reading and I'm just some lunatic who talks to herself. Ok, I know there have been a few lovely friends on facebook who read because it updates on my wall. Thank you, and I really appreciate it. If you are out there.... please leave a comment ... In my blog... and let me know your listening, please? Ok, enough with the begging and groveling. Happy New Year everyone! New year, new commitments.. First,I will try to make more effort to keep this blog alive. Second, I will try to start an etsy site thus year. Yay! I'm sure I can keep one of those commitments, right? I have come accross a few people who had other people show interest in my knitwear. If only I had a place for them to send these interested people to.

I went to Imagiknit this week and picked ip some stuff... mmmm.... Malabrigo... Yummy! It's a start. I will definately start making some inventory soon... or as soon as I finish my Citron shawl. (Photo coming soon)
