Living in a house of two, I'm constantly looking for ways to use up my fresh produce. I have little frozen tart shells in my freezer at all times. They are great for canapes, desserts, and anything you can think of!

I had high hopes for this but we were disappointed in the end. They look pretty but the taste is just not quite there. The flavor of the soup was too prevalent. I also think they need something to thicken them a bit to improve the texture. As it was they were a bit too "soupy" all the way around for our taste. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly and they were delicious! I made them for an all girl party to celebrate my sister finishing chemo therapy. Everyone loved them and they were gone in a flash! Read More

Even though these are always the first things to disappear on the buffet these tarts are too good and to easy to save for company. Wonderful in the extreme. Close your eyes and savor the flavor. Yummy! Read More

I took these to a party and they were a hit. I didn't have asparagus so I used broccoli. After reading reviews about this being soupy I added 2 eggs to the mix and they were perfect. Read More
