A beautiful combination of flavors perfect to get your mind off of the current craziness! In a time like this, the best thing to do is bake. This tart is just what you need to bright up your day working from home and being isolated from everyone. The salted caramel sauce is one I will be using a lot in the future. It is absolutely delicious especially with whipped cream. It can be very versatile and used in anything from desserts to beverages.

  1. Fascinates the eye from the beginning, before the other senses make their moves. The varying layers of sweetness come together to create a delightful, sophisticated medley. Similar, I suspect, to a creamy Bananas Foster.
