Two Spring Tarts for Mother's Day


Is it a good idea to have two pies for brunch on Mother's Day?

Why not?  I'm thinking of serving this Strawberry Rhubarb Tarts and Spring Leek and Asparagus Quiche with a big fresh salad.  I should probably top the tarts with a scoop of homemade strawberry ice cream.




However, I have a problem with choosing what's healthy and good for me over what I want. I always tend to make the healthy choice.  Chances are I will probably end up making Cedar Plank Salmon, which is just as delicious...or I'll just serve all of them...hmmmmm.


Three fabulous ideas.


I'm sure you have noticed that I haven't been posting quite so often.  I need to take some time off to work on recipe development, photography, and try to decide where I want this blog to go from here.

I could use some personal time as well.  I have so many things I have neglected that need my care AND I simply just need a break.

I will try to post every so often until I get a good list of new recipes worth posting.

I'd love your feed back.  My eating habits have changed since starting this blog.  I try not to use
processed foods.  I like fresh, flavorful, funky and spicy ingredients.  So I may be switching things up a bit...or not.

 Any ideas????

  1. I love this blog! I too have been trying to get away from processed foods as much as possible; and I use Certified Organic as much as possible. I'm upset by the US bill that seeks to block mandatory GMO labeling by states. I want to have a choice. I hope you keep blogging...you are certainly on the right track with your recipes.

    1. Thank you so much for your comment. I agree with you. I want a choice as well. I wish there could be a ban on GMO's in the states. Thanks for your confidence.

    Your blog is really the best. There hasn't been one thing that I tried that hasn't turned out. Great pictures, great directions. I will certainly miss your blog while you take a break. Thanks for all the time and effort that you have put in.

  4. I've been reading your blog for almost two years and appreciate your crisp and friendly writing style, easy to follow recipes, and the oh-go-gorgeous photos. I rarely use processed foods either, and have been grateful for your recipes with fresh, seasonal ingredients. I applaud you for taking time out to figure out where you are going...and hope that whatever you decide, we might get to go along with you. Is there a cookbook on the horizon?

    1. Kristine, you just made my day. Thank you so much for such a kind post. I'm not so sure about a cookbook. My husband has been after me for years to publish one. My daughter is against the idea because many of her favorite bloggers leave their sites during the process, which is too long according to her. Thank you so much. I will be back!

  5. Janet, I absolutely adore your blog. I love the complex flavors and how you teach us we really can make things at home - like Crusty bread and ricotta cheese. I always look forward to seeing what you'll post next. I would hate not having fresh new recipes from you, but applaud you for doing what is best for you. I look forward to seeing where the blog goes.
