Sharing the Love of Food

Today I figured out how to add a page to my blog. Big doins' I know! In keeping with my philosophy of the 'the power of small', I am revelling in this little accomplishment and decided to use it as a space to post recipes, thus I've creatively named the page 'Recipes' and I've posted one. Ahem.

Product Details(Note: not sure if I will be able to post another one, so enjoy this one!)

The debut recipe is for Caramel Pecan Tart - a favourite dessert for patrons of Chez Piggy, a well-known restaurant in Kingston, Ontario. Hubby went to Queens University and, ten years ago,  as part of our courtship trip back through time to all the places we'd lived, worked and studied (well, studied - at least in his case) we visited Kingston and had a beautiful summer lunch in the sun-dappled Chez Piggy courtyard.

Kingston is well worth the visit - site of Fort Henry, where hubby spent summers dressed as a 19th century British guardsmen, guiding tourists - full of wonderful old stone buildings, great shThe Fort Henry Guardsops and good eats.

Chez Piggy itself was opened in a renovated limestone livery stable by Rose Richardson and Zal Yanovsky. Yanovsky played with The Lovin' Spoonful - so apt for someone destined to share his love of food and a healthy appetite for the good life.

I'm happy to share their recipe for Caramel Pecan Tart. It's become a favourite of friends and family here at the West Coast, one I regularly serve as a 'company' dessert. I like to dress it up with some whipped cream, and once in awhile I even salute it, Fort Henry style.
