A Tart and Brownie Sundaes!


Beef, Mushroom Onion Tart from Better Homes & Gardens (mine also looked this good!)

Took a little break from my usual holiday weekend of no-cooking and having fast/frozen food meals to actually prepare a meal!  Guess what -- it turned out yummy!!

I found the recipe in the Better Homes & Gardens Prizewinning Recipes book they recently sent me.  They said someone had requested the book be sent to me?  Hmmm-- wondering who that was??? 

Anyway, it was easy-peasy to  make and very delish! Even Maddy kind of liked it.  And what's really great about it, is that you could easily add all kinds of things, like green peppers, more mushrooms, sauce, etc. to it to make it even better.

Those who know me, know that I must have chocolate -- preferably at every meal! 
 So I also made brownie cupcakes!!  Add some vanilla ice cream and chocolate sauce -- voila -- a delish brownie sundae!! 

My friend, Ina Garten, loaned me this photo.  My brownies were cupcakes and actually looked even better! There were none left or I would have taken a photo!

 I really outdid myself today, so am definitely taking Labor Day off tomorrow. 

Hoping for more cooking adventures soon.  Maddy and I may try to make chocolate dipped rice krispie treats on a stick!  Stay tuned!!!

Everything looks simply divine. I could dunk myself in that chocolate sauce. We're gearing up for our fist day of school tomorrow. Keeping our fingers crossed when the 5:50 alarm goes off!
