The idea to continue my title of this post into the first sentence, set to the tune of "Merry Old Land of Oz," seemed like a cute idea when it was in my head but as I'm typing it, I'm not so sure.
In any event, and with The Wizard of Oz aside, I have resumed my baking! Not that I ever totally abandoned it but I wasn't really feeling inspired for awhile (hence my recent batch of boring, uninspired, follow-the recipe chocolate chip cookies) but my passion has returned...and how!
Pop, lock and drop it:
And now, the TARTS:
I made this week Berry-Filled Nut Poppers, rolled in coconut, and Mango-Pineapple Tarts! I am so pleased with how both things turned out AND they seem to be a hit at work (the poppers, that is--the tarts I dropped off just this morning so I don't yet know if those are moving).
My mom LOVES the tarts. She has sampled every last thing of mine--which is a lot--and the fact that THESE are her favorite is very telling. And flattering ;)
A recipe for this will follow.
