Lemon Tart with Poppy Seed Crust

I love lemons. The acidic taste and the sweet contrast just makes my mouth water. And the crust is absolutely perfect, made with coconut oil, an egg, flour, and poppy seeds!

And this is pretty healthy, so there is no reason why you can’t have seconds. Or thirds. Or fourths. (Whoops. That was me after dinner.)

This really was perfect. Oh, and Chinese New Year is coming up! Does anyone celebrate that? Well anyways, it’s the day where we celebrate the New Year, according to the Chinese calendar, and it’s the year of the MONKEY! Don’t know why, but I find that so cute. (The monkey, not the celebration. Wait. That would sound like I don’t like the celebration. Okay, Chinese New Year is cute also!)Read More »


Pastry Cream Chocolate Ganache Tart


Decadent and chocolaty, this chocolate ganache tart with pastry cream is a really nice dessert to impress someone. It’s incredibly rich, so servings are pretty small, but everyone will probably want seconds anyways. And it’s not as fattening as you think it would be, especially with a graham cracker crust instead of a pastry crust (which is usually loaded with butter)!

The first time I made this, the amount of pastry cream was not enough, so next time I’ll double the quantity so the layer is more visible. But if you don’t want to take the hassle for that layer, just double the ganache recipe and you’ll have a purely chocolate ganache tart, which is also very delicious!Read More »
