Raise your joys and triumphs high.


For Easter dinner at my grandma’s house, I made a strawberry tart using this Smitten Kitchen recipe and this recipe for the crust. (I wish I had a picture of it out of the pan, but, alas, I do not. It looked very nice, though! If I am allowed to say such a thing.) This is the second time I’ve made that tart, and both times, the plate was wiped clean. It’s not very difficult to make, and the crust worked really well this time overall. I am going to be throwing a bridal shower for a coworker next month, and I will probably make this tart again for that, just because it looks nice, tastes great, and isn’t all that much work. Trifecta!

You shouldn’t be too incredibly impressed with my work, though. We had Easter lunch at a friend’s house, with each of us bringing something to share. Our friend Deb, the one who made Mike’s sea turtle cake, made this delicious chocolate cake for our enjoyment. Obviously, she is the one with actual talent in the baking area.


I hope your Easter was full of the things that bring you joy. Ours had music and flowers and friends and family and, of course, food. It was a lovely day.
