baking mojo happening here…….

Remember this book I showed you in  previous post saying there were at least two recipes I needed to try my hand at making well my baking mojo kicked in today and the pictures below are the result of it……

I made not one spinach and feta tart but two from the one recipe….Are you getting hungry yet?

Number two browned up a bit better and I changed the recipe around as you do and added an extra egg and used fresh spinach instead of frozen and this tart looks a little bit nicer as I realised I still had a few leaves left in the bag so I just added them to the top and hoped for the best Smile The only other thing I’d change next time is not add any rock salt as the ricotta was salty enough without adding anymore but it still tasted yummy. My sister Anne popped around just as I was about to take out the first tart so she got to share a slice with her cup of coffee, nothing beats eating  fresh food straight from the oven with great company.

I’m heading off in a bit to watch my nephew Andrew play Seymor in “Little shop of horrors” but I’ll be back to baking after that and the next recipe on my list is the apple and blueberry cake  from the same book so watch this space for more photo’s Smile
