Everything is so FFAAAAST these day. Not to mention that the older the I get, the less I believe each year actually contains 365 individual sunrises and sunsets. Lately, birthdays seem more like threats than celebrations, and when I run into a friend in the supermarket and we do the math to calculate the last time we saw one another, we both become mutual non-believers in the physical realm of time. Now that I think of it, I also question whether each day has 24 hours, and certainly 60 seconds is seriously over estimating how long it takes for a minute to pass. Whew! I'm tired already. That's why, when it is the weekend, I often like FAST but amazing appetizers. How do I accomplish this? My MUSHROOM AND SHALLOT SAVORY TART WITH FIG GLAZE is the quickest way I know to appetizer-love in a flash, and even though it takes hardly any time at all, it is also EZ. The flavors feel luxurious, the puff pastry looks very French, and the golden colored fig glaze is like topping the whole thing with a necklace of beautiful amber. Time officially stopped in its tracks in one fell swoop!
See! Below I've posted lots of pictures, and the recipe has lots of step by step instructions.

My name is Camine Pappas and I love to create beautiful and delicious food that anyone can make. My signature style centers around a love for combining things in a way you might not expect as I work to find a hidden combination of colors, textures and flavors from the things that are in my pantry and/or easy to obtain.
