Why do I feel that it has been too long since I last made this? Even though when I checked on my profile, it has only been barely 2 months. Perhaps I just enjoyed eating it too much. The greatest perk for being able to bake your own dessert is definitely the ability to tweak... Continue Reading →

The last time I baked tartlets using this tart ring, I had such a hard time lining them with aluminium foil. I have been lining my tart shells with aluminium foil for blind baking for the longest time so I really had to crack my brains to think of another method. Finally I got it.... Continue Reading →

I really wanted to squeeze in one last bake before my Christmas holidays, and I don't know why I chose this particular "short weekend" to experiment with different ways to bake my tart shells.

But, that seemed a little extreme. Finally I got a toy pottery turntable off Amazon. 🙄 And I think it sort of does the trick.... Continue Reading →

So I am totally going to go crazy with tarts for the next couple of weeks. Anyway, tarts have always been my favourite pastry, both to make as well as to eat. I wasn't sure how these will turn out as I have never lined a tart of this shape before. And I was really... Continue Reading →

I have been obsessing about micro-perforated tart rings for ages. So when I was in England recently, I bought a bunch of them, and I mean "a bunch"!
