Lazy Man’s Flan Parisian

28 Jul Grazing in The City - Vanilla Custard Tart

As the summer wears on, I’m finding it harder to motivate myself to cook in the kitchen. With all the heat outside, why make even more inside? But once I saw this recipe for Flan Parisian (Vanilla Custard Tart), I thought this might be worth cranking up the old oven.

Chess Squares

Here’s a recipe to take things back to my church cookbook roots. Pretty much a guaranteed winner at county fairs everywhere, pound cakes are one of those dessert staples I grew up on – seems like there was always a pound cake of some sort hanging out in the kitchen. My mom would make different kinds, and I’m sure there are as many kinds of pound cake as there are county fairs across the land. Here is a good, basic recipe which can be added to or enhanced with other flavors to suit what you would like – it’s guaranteed to win the blue ribbon . . .
