Breakfast Tart

I think I have a man at home that would devour this heavenly goodness:

I've discovered a new website dedicated to the finer things in life. You can visit The Jewels of NY here. You won't be sorry.

Yum, I want that breakfast tart RIGHT NOW.

Recipe includes:

Spring Breakfast Tart
serves 2

1 sheet puff pastry dough
1 strip of bacon, cut in lardons (optional)
3 asparagus spears
1 teaspoon oilve oil
1/4 cup creme fraiche
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, finely chopped
2 tablespoons gruyere, grated
2 eggs
salt and pepper to taste
egg wash
*arugula flowers

Preheat oven to 425°F.
Thaw the puff pastry dough according to the package instructions.
Place asparagus spears on a baking sheet, drizzle with olive oil and season wih salt and pepper. Scatter lardons on another baking pan and bake both asparagus and bacon for 10 minutes.
Place the thawed puff pastry dough on a lightly floured surface and cut into approximately 6 1/4-by-9 1/2-inch rectangle. Place the dough on baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Using a paring knife, score a border 1/2 inch in from the edge of the dough. Using a fork, prick the center of the dough and brush the border with the egg wash. Refrigerate for at least 15 minutes.
Par-bake pastry dough for 8 minutes, using a fork to prick any air pockets.
In a small bowl stir together creme fraiche and thyme. Salt and pepper to taste.
Spread the creme fraiche mixture evenly on the center of the pastry dough, keeping the border clean. Sprinkle with gruyere cheese and then scatter the lardons. Crack the eggs onto the tart, spacing them 2 inches apart and then place the roasted asparagus spears. Bake until the egg whites are set and the yolks are still soft, about 10 minutes.
Garnish with arugula flowers and serve immediately.

Book Page Canvas

I'm in LOVE with this idea from Little Birdie Secrets.

Except, I think I'll do sheet music for Wade's "office" (a.k.a. our computer room and Lucy's drawing room) It needs alittle womanly touch.

Check out her tutorial here.

Save Food From The Fridge

Probably the coolest thing I've ever seen. EVER.

For all you science nerds, wood lovers, and modernists…check out the “Save Food From The Fridge” by Jihyun Ryou.

Confetti Yogurt Pops

Doesn't that look delicious!

And it's HEALTHY! I know my Lucy Lu will love this!

cups low-fat vanilla yogurt
1 cup assorted berries (raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, chopped strawberries)
5 pretzel rods, halved, or 10 baked snack stick crackers

1. In a large bowl gently stir together the yogurt and fruit. Spoon into 4-ounce ice-pop molds or 3-ounce paper cups. Cover molds or cups with foil; use a sharp knife to cut a small hole in the foil and insert cut side of pretzel rod or snack stick. Freeze until firm. Remove foil and mold or cup before serving.

2. Store for up to a month. Makes 6 pops.
