Cooking is fun. Eating is funner. I cook, photograph and write these recipes. Everything I post on this blog I make from scratch using fresh wholesome ingredients.. I've been cooking since I was a little kid. My recipes are based on trial and error, along with studying cookbooks, family recipes, blogs and cooking shows. Some of the veggies and herbs I use are grown in my garden. Yay sustainability! I'm working on making my yard into an edible landscape. It's really fun to go out in the garden and pick your veggies for dinner! I'm helping as many people as I can to plant edible gardens in their yards too. It's hard work but it's really fun!

Plum Tart

My neighbor rang my doorbell the other day and handed me a big bag of organic plums from trees that grow in her friend’s garden. These little plums are sweet, tangy, delicious and perfect. When I get an unexpected ingredient, I’ll sometimes do a google search for inspiration. I knew I had puff pastry squares in the freezer, so I googled “plum tart”. I found a beautiful Plum Tart image from the Weight Watchers web site and I was all, “Perfect, that’s exactly what I want to make”. I clicked through to read the recipe and it was only missing two important things, butter and sugar. So I added those to the recipe and it came out amazingly delicious. If you’re watching calories, you can omit the butter and sugar, because the apricot jelly does add a certain amount of sweetness. But life is short, and tangy summer plums bake up so nicely with a little butter and sugar. 

Heat oven to 400. Thaw 2 small squares of puff pastry. Slice 7 to 10 small or medium sized fresh plums, removing the stones. Roll the puff pastry on a floured surface. Butter a tart pan. Add the rolled pastry to the pan, cover with the sliced plums, sprinkle with 2 - 3 tablespoons granulated sugar, dot with little bits of butter, about 1 to 2 tsp, and dots of apricot jelly, about 1 to 2 tsp. Bake for 15 minutes until the edges puff up and become crispy and the sugary plums are bubbling hot. Dust with powdered sugar. Yum!
