Simple Pear Tart

The one picture of this dessert that I have so doesn't give it justice.  I took the picture before baking and the result of this endeavor was that wonderful feeling that comes sometimes from creating a food that looks like you have more skill than you really do.  I felt like an artisan baker and even though I was baking off a recipe, it really felt like it was all me.

This dessert was inspired by a dessert had at on a magical dinner that Eric & I shared at a lodge up north in Minnesota.  It truly was a magical day all over.  The trip was a surprise to begin with, we drove to this heavily wooded area and smack dab in the middle of a 7" snow storm.  IT WAS AWESOME!!!

Honey Soy Porkchops with Light Salad

There is nothing better than cooking a great meal for family and everyone REALLY enjoying it.  Could've been that it was a great summer evening as well.
