Breakfast Tart: Caramelized Onion

Crispy, hot onion tart

Recently on social media, I asked for some ideas for new breakfast entrees to use at Bloomsbury Inn.  A great friend suggested onion tarts.  I began with a basic recipe.  I tried both puff pastry and pie dough.  Once I had decided on puff pastry, I experimented with different cheeses and then jams.  So, here […]

Everyone in the county and many outside knew my Grandmother Sallie Rose; some knew her cooking while others knew her quilting.  Most people called her Sallie, but to me she was Nanny.  I was the most fortunate child around as we lived just a mile from Nanny, and I was allowed to be there all […]
