Wow…it’s taken me six weeks to get through one episode. I’ve had a few things going on here… The last item on the list is a showstopper tart; a large designer fruit tart. I’ve chosen a jam custard tart. I found a recipe here…another blog that actually has the recipe at the TOP of the… Continue reading Jam Custard Tart
It took two attempts to make this tart, and I gotta tell ya, I’m not a fan. It’s a very easy tart to make and has only a few ingredients. Make the crust, heat the golden syrup (honey + molasses), and stir in the breadcrumbs (yes–BREADCRUMBS) and a splash of lemon juice. Pour into tart… Continue reading Traditional Treacle Tart
I was really looking forward to making this one, but it took buying apples three times before I was able to actually make it. I’ve got four other people here, and at least two of them nicking the apples so I didn’t have enough to make the dessert. I used a recipe that I found… Continue reading Tarte Tatin
I know I’ve been away from the baking for a while–I’ve been working on my weaving for an Arts & Sciences event coming up at the end of June. I have a long list of historical woven bits to complete, so I pushed aside the baking. I decided to watch a little bit of the… Continue reading Frangipane Dreams

To also allow my SIL to eat it (wheat allergy), I planned on making it with a wheat-free tart crust, a recipe for which I found here (aside from being… Continue reading Tart for Dad
The three basics that were part of the skills section of the final episode of season 1 is seeming to take me the longest! I got the Disappointing Victoria Sammies done, and now, finally, the Tarte au Citron! Just the scones to go…maybe I’ll make those tomorrow. In the show, they made lots of little… Continue reading Tarte au Citron
So today’s tart is Cherry Custard! I wanted to be sure I tried the custard again–to make sure making it wasn’t a fluke–to make some improvements on the crust, and add a favorite ingredient…cherries! You may notice in upcoming months that there are a few combinations that get repeated, like chocolate and caramel, s’mores, Chai,… Continue reading Sweet Cherry Piiiiiiiiie!! I mean, Tart!
I started making the Baked Alaska at the end of the last challenge, but had several failures (much like Ian on the show, who pitched his entire effort into the trash and stormed off). 1. Ice cream–I bought pre-made ice cream rather than making home-made, and I really need to mix it with the Oreos… Continue reading Tarts and Pies Week!
