The Down Under Lemon Tart

Good Morning! I am sharing a beautiful lemon tart with you today but I wanted to take a moment to tell you all what will be happening for the next 4 weeks. For the next 4 weeks,
starting tomorrow, I have a big sale event at work. Last year was the first year we ever did this event, but it worked so well and we sold so much furniture that we are doing this event again. If you are in the area, feel free to stop by La-Z-Boy in Lafayette Indiana. While it is great, I will be very busy for the next 3-4 weeks and I won't be able to spend as much time on Calamity Kate's Facebook page or Twitter account. I have prewritten 3 blog posts, including this one, so you can all won't have to wait on some awesome recipes and stories. I will still get to see any and all of your fabulous comments as they go through my email.  I will see you next week with Fourth of July Cupcakes...until then, enjoy The Down Under Lemon Tart! 
Aunt Nancy and Bing 
While I was in Milwaukee we made this delicious tart with my Aunt Nancy, I am sure you have all heard me talk about her, she is the best. I love spending time with Aunt Nancy and Aunt Fran while in Milwaukee. We cook and bake and we eat and we talk and we laugh and we eat some more.  Aunt Nancy is a very accomplished cook and baker, but she makes pies and tarts like no one can! Aunt Nancy found this tart recipe online. We made it on the 3rd or 4th day I was in Milwaukee.  The tart dough is very solid and slightly sweet. This recipe made 2 tart shells but only one tart of filling. We froze the second tart shell and later that week we used it for a french apple tart. This tart dough is now my go to recipe for tarts!

Better Than Storebought Hummus

I love hummus and is a good thing because, my vegan/pescatarian family eats a ton of hummus. Hummus with veggies, hummus with bread, hummus with chips, and hummus instead of sauce on pizza. If you have ever watched, Don't Mess with the Zohan? We eat hummus like that...except we don't use it in our hair, or to put out fires or as toothpaste... but you get my drift.  We like hummus and what a hummus this is!

My Marshmallow and MasterChef Addiction Cookie Cake

It finally feels like summer in Indiana and summer is the time for s'mores!

Ooey and Gooey S'more Cake
Marshmallows are one of my favorite foods. They are so delicious! I love my s'mores toasted and browned but with a little burnt! I bought a bag of marshmallows recently and I decided that is was time to make something with the marshmallows and not just eating them out of the bag. When I saw the recipe at My Baking Addiction I knew you all would love it and my marshmallow addiction would be out in the open... I have a problem and now that I told you about it, I need to go eat more marshmallows!
