Caprese Tart

This is one of those recipes you will make over and over again because it is so easy.

Caprese Tart

First and foremost I can’t believe I am finally sharing this recipe with you – I swear I have mentioned it eighty million times on here. The hard part about sharing it with everyone was actually taking the time to measure everything out precisely. Just like I can do Mexican Pie in my sleep, same goes for this dish.

Do you have dishes like that?


We were supposed to make this on Valentine’s Day for our group dinner but I forgot the puff pastry – whoops! Oh well the evening was still a success.

I can’t believe it’s Friday already. This week has flown by for me. And in just a few weeks John and I are going to Fort Lauderdale for our 4 year anniversary. I feel like I need a vacation – I guess the last one we really took without John Grayson was to the beach  almost 2 years ago.

Caprese Tart

For some odd reason I think Caprese anything makes me think of love – Caprese Salad, Caprese Chicken..the list goes on. Don’t ask me why – I blame my travels to Italy and spending time there with John.

But I hope you create this for someone you love – because maybe even after one bite you will understand my crazy thought behind Caprese = Love!
