Hope your summer is swell. I've been taking Physics every night, which has put a damper on my break, but I think I need to be doing something relatively academic to keep my sanity. I can't be baking and blogging all day, errryday, so half of my day is spent on a college campus. When I'm not in class though, I've been trying to figure out something else I can do to pass my time. My newest pet project is to remodel my room, with new (or old) furniture and a fresh coat of paint. I've had mint green walls and Winnie the Pooh borders for far too long (12 years to be exact), and I think it's time for a change. So my new home, instead of blogger, is now Craigslist. I still haven't gotten the buying-selling strategy quite figured out though, but with my looming summer ahead, I think I have plenty of time. Let me know if anyone wants a set of furniture!
For now, another delicious recipe.
At my house, nothing says summer like the smell of ripe strawberries with the sound of a summer rainstorm in the background. We were hit with multiple storms yesterday, and the thunder was oddly peaceful. I decided to make strawberry custard tarts with the ingredients I had on hand, and I thought it was pretty successful for my first go.
Ingredients (for about 6 tarts)
