Sharing a bit of Tart

Don’t you just love a good recipe?

A few weeks ago I saw that a blogger friend, Miriam, shared a recipe, which was a new thing for her to do. It sparked an idea for me, and I think I am going to try it.

After all, my Iowa roots are deep in homemade cooking and I think it’d be a fun subject to write about. My hope is to post recipes from cookbooks that my grandma’s have recipes published in and also some recipes I use and love. If I stumble across anything yummy, I’ll try to share it here as well.

I thought I’d kick off this new recipe adventure with Miriam’s tart. It looks refreshing and delicious at the same time.

I especially love how she put in that last phrase about putting on some music and dancing it off! Now that’s what I call celebrating dessert!

Out an' About

For all you dessert lovers out there I thought I’d follow up my last post with the recipe for my Peach and Raspberry Tart.  This is a first for me, posting a recipe and I don’t have any elaborate step by step pictures to guide you but it’s super easy and such a favorite amongst my family and friends that I simply had to share the love here.

      Yum and yum! And, thanks! I think it’ll be fun sharing recipes. My grandmas have some yummy stuff. :)

    Oh dear!! This looks delish! I must try this one 😁

    • Jessica Adam May 5, 2016 / 3:45 am

      That’s just what I thought! I’m afraid I’d have much of it gone before I even noticed! Yum. :)

    Glad you’ve shared Jessica. This one’s too good to keep secret! Can’t wait to read all your recipes. :)

      Thought this was the perfect start to a new category of writing/ sharing. My grandmas would be excited for a recipe swap. Their cookbooks were full of cut out recipes from newspapers and magazines that I hope to share. Also, some recipes in the books are marked “must try” in their handwriting!

      I think that’s a sign to do some cooking! :)

      Can’t wait to try your recipe. We love fruit!

        How wonderful. Mum used to have a mountain of cookbooks too, with hand written notes and favorites scrawled throughout. Can’t wait to see and share more recipes with you. :)

          My grandmas were just a tad older than your mum. They were born in 1919. Although they were in different countries, I bet they shared some of the same values. I love that! Didn’t really surprise me much about your mum having lots of cookbooks with handwritten notes in them, too. That’s one of my favorite things and part of what makes cooking so special :) Wait til you see my mom’s carrot cake recipe! Yuuuuum!

          • Miriam May 5, 2016 / 8:46 am

            Oh, yummm! I feel a baking binge coming up. Bring it on. :)

          • Jessica Adam May 5, 2016 / 8:54 am

            As soon as vacation is finished, I’ll share it. It’s at home! :)

          • Miriam May 5, 2016 / 8:57 am

            No rush Jess. You just enjoy your vacation, the cake can wait! (I’m off to bed now, G’night) ♥

          • Miriam May 5, 2016 / 8:59 am

            And you have a great day. Talk soon. xx

        I cannot believe what you wrote. I also have been thinking about posting a new category: Food. I love to cook and use our fresh farm grown foods. Oh, my, between us all, we should be seeing some pretty amazing recipes soon. :)

        • Jessica Adam May 5, 2016 / 5:04 pm

          Are you serious??? We’re like sisters! We should all make a bloggers cookbook! How fun would that be?

    I actually started a teensy private blog a while back but found it to be too many pages to keep after. That, and I preferred to be here at WP. I had lots of cooking photos and recipes there as well as other stuff, so I am going to transfer much of it here. I actually baked TODAY in prep for my new idea. Yes, we must meet some day! :)

    • Jessica Adam May 5, 2016 / 6:46 pm

      Wow! I had no idea! How cool! Maybe we can each have our own books, probably be easier. But, fun to think about. Way to go on baking. I sat on the beach and watched dolphins. Now we’re starving. Ha!
