Strawberry Tart

Strawberry Pie-recipe

I am a salty kind of girl. I don’t have a sweet tooth. But sometimes I just crave a specific dessert, especially in the summertime when you just want to indulge in fruits! So the other day, I was craving a strawberry tart and since I never made one before, I decided to just give it a try using this recipe! And it was so yummy! I know, I know, I really need to improve my strawberry organization skills because there’s definitely NOT enough strawberries in this pie now that I look at it and it’s not that well organized either ^^

Je suis plutôt salé que sucré. Mais de temps en temps ça me prend et j’ai vraiment envie d’un dessert, si possible avec de jolis fruits pendant l’été! L’autre jour, j’ai eu l’envie soudaine de manger une tarte aux fraises et comme je n’en avais jamais fait auparavant, j’ai décidé de m’y mettre et d’essayer cette recette! Et elle était dé-li-cieuse! Bon, je vous l’accorde, je suis loin d’être une experte en placement et répartition de fraises – Je ferais mieux la prochaine fois ^^

Baking Sunday

As far as baking is concerned, it doesn’t get much better than homemade chocolate chip cookies. That’s why I had to make some this weekend! I used this recipe. I bought some cookie cutters for Christmas and wanted to try them on chocolate chip cookies (not the easiest..!). When you bake these, make also sure to take them out of the oven before they hardened. Served with a giant glass of milk, it’s definitely one of my favorite dessert!
