I hope you've all taken a minute to visit Linda aka goodshoeday at With Knife and Fork. Linda and I are related... well, sort of. I adopted her into our food blogger community through Kristen's Adopt A Blogger program!
Linda and I have been having a good time getting to know one another through emails and by reading each other's blog. Linda lives in London, so it's interesting for me to see some of the ingredients she uses that might not be available to me here in the middle of Montana.
Linda suggested that we choose a recipe from the other's blog, make it, then do a post about it. I chose to recreate her Asparagus Tart. Linda made a beautiful asparagus tart using filo dough , goat cheese and seasoned eggs... and her new Tarte Maison!
I wasn't able to find filo here, so went with Pillsbury (R) Crescent Recipe Creations dough. After shaping the dough into the size I wanted I spread a small amount of Dijon on it and baked it for about 15 minutes. I then covered it with grated cheese, red pepper flakes and crisp-cooked asparagus. Back into the oven it went until the cheese was melted and the crust had browned.
I cut this tart into squares and enjoyed them for breakfast and snacks. Thanks, Linda for doing a recipe showdown with me and for the great idea using fresh asparagus!
Take a look at Linda's blog to see which of my recipes she chose to make!
