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!
