Tricia's Turn ~
I never thought I would be unexcited about baking
something chocolate, yet this TWD hit at a particularly
busy time........and unexcited I was.
Leave it to Dorie, however, to hand me a recipe that I ended up
enjoying from start to finish. I got a delicious chocolate tart AND
and attitude adjustment, although for me - those two tend to go
hand in hand....... regardless of who is doing the cooking :)
It was a day of much "eating of words" in addition to eating tartlet.
I planned to short cut as many steps and ingredients as I could to
"knock this one out", but instead managed to make two separate
trips to the grocery store and still maintain a smile on my face.
Little Miss "I am going to microwave that chocolate and butter...."
instead found it very peaceful and creative to turn those items into
a glorious chocolate liquid treat and not get any steam
burns in the process. (I was getting worried with this technique)
This truly was a delight of recipe from start to finish for me.
I am certain I will get much distance on that chocolate crust
alone and I am already formulating plans to use it
for other delicious concoctions.
Overall - this was a knock out recipe and I am now even
more looking forward to this whole TWD adventure.
