I recently read a post by Peabody that I was just reminded of while preparing to write about this week’s Tuesdays with Dorie recipe because she was talking about the little angel and the little devil on her shoulder. I find myself in a somewhat similar predicament with this week’s recipe – La Palette’s Strawberry Tart, chosen by Marie of A Year From Oak Cottage. Otherwise known as my new favorite way to eat strawberries!
You see, not too long ago I made the Tarte Noir from Baking From My Home To Yours for my first post over at Blake Makes as a Blake Baker (which, incidentally launched yesterday with a fabulous tutorial on making bread by TWD’s very own darlin’ Lemon Tartlet Leigh) and had already made Dorie’s Sweet Tart Crust. Herein lay my dilemma. All I could think about, all week long was the combination of that crust with chocolate. I couldn’t get it out of my head.
So, back to the angels and devils. The angel was telling me “Don’t mess with a good thing. It is supposed to be simple and rustic. Just relax and let this recipe be what it is.” But, then that little devil kept piping in and saying “Oh, it’s just a little change – besides, isn’t everything better with chocolate.”
