It’s hot out. And I decided to experiment and create a summer tart. Something that makes you think of sunny skies when you eat it. I wanted to challenge myself to make white chocolate ganache, and I’m a huge fan of lemon. Pairing these things together made a dessert a sweet tooth can only dream of.

Things I learned: white chocolate ganache is very hard to make, I own many yellow pieces of clothing, and there are a lot of angles with a camera that can make you look pretty special. Luckily for you, none of those will show up here.

You’ll also receive double trouble this week.  Juxtaposed with this daytime sunshine tart, I also made a salted chocolate and caramel tart which I’ll post in a few days. Dark and sexy.

My White Chocolate Tart with Lemon Curd. Three separate elements combined into dessert-dom.

What is summer without strawberries and rhubarb? NOTHING. USELESS. I had never made one of these guys until my husband mentioned that it was his favorite pie. So I scoured some of the sites I trust in and not surprisingly made one from The Baker Chick that is just scrumptious. [her website never disappoints, so if you want to make great food and see pictures of a precious baby, go here]

Juicy and bright in flavor.  The lemon zest mixed in gives it a freshness that makes you want it for breakfast. 

It may have become my favorite pie as well.

In our apartment, it’s like, “Honey – I made a – ” ALREADY EATEN.
