Bake Rustic Apple Tart + Keep Recipes
Here's my recipe for a light and satisfying sunny afternoon snack. Pair with iced or hot mulled wine flavored tea. Bon appetit!
I love collecting recipes from the internet and I keep lots of recipe notebooks. Recently I stumbled on Keep Recipes on Lifehacker. Keep Recipe is a nifty and clever online tool that allows you to "clip and save" recipes from all over the web. It also has a nice social networking feature that allows you to follow fellow foodies, friends and even famous chefs.
This is my Keep Recipes page. Hope to follow and share recipes with you soon!
