What a Tart

Greetings! I realized this morning that I missed my How YOU doin’? Monday post. Things have been so crazy lately that I can’t even keep track of what day it is!

So, How YOU doin’ this week?

Boyfriend returned home this weekend after his week-long family vacation. While having the house to myself for a little while was nice, I’m super glad he’d back. Prior to Boyfriend’s arrival, a visitor showed up and decided to spend the week with me.

This is Ditty:


Don’t let that sweet little face fool you. Ditty is not super happy about staying with me, mainly because of the other cats in the house. She has been expressing her displeasure with the situation by making Gremlin noises at the other cats and picking fights with Merlin at 4 a.m. (Despite her bitchy behavior, I love this little Gremlin.)

Monday, after a long, exhausting day at work, I decided to come home and bake something. (Relax? Pffft. What does that even mean?) I got a new set of mini tart pans recently and I’ve been dying to try them out. These little beauties were the result. They have a shortbread crust, chocolate pastry cream, and fresh raspberries. They were so yummy. ❤

I hope you’re all off to a good start this week.

  1. Are ye watching Ditty? That is a super cute cat. And I want to eat that desert. I wish I could cook. I can’t even boil eggs without directions. And I haven’t touched a stove in 4 1/2 years. That is what the first mate is for!

    1. Yes. I was cat sitting for a week. Ditty went home this weekend and everything is a little calmer around here.

      I can’t even fathom not touching a stove for that long! Cooking and baking are so therapeutic for me. To each their own though. At least you have first mate to cook for you!
