French Apple Tart (Tarte de Pommes a la Normande)

Reviewed: Nov. 11, 2010
Delicious! I made it for a dinner party and everyone loved it. They weren't just being polite, either. The pastry is so tastely. I ususally do not like pie crust, but this one almost tastes like a soft shortbread. It was yummy. It was incredibly easy and fun to make. I made some additions, however. 1. I toasted slivered almonds with some cinnamon, then ground it in a food preocesser. 2. I added two TBS of good French brandy to the final Frangipane mixture. MMMM 3. I soaked the apples in some brandy and sugar (I used small red sweet and sour apples from a coworker's tree) as I made everything else. ****I may add lcourser grounded toasted almonds to the pastry part next time. I recommend this tart.

Rich Italian Sausage and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Sep. 3, 2013
The soup definitely needed some seasoning. I added some salt,pepper, and chives and used smoked bacon instead of pancetta. I addesd a small sprinkle of Nutmeg and some chopped parsley on top of each bowl of soup before serving.
