How was everyone’s January? Hopefully, you all survived the extreme cold, if you had been affected by it. January was super busy and I made the decision to unplug from the internet for most of it.

Super Simple Old Fashioned Egg Custard Tart

This Super Simple Old Fashioned Egg Custard Tart is a dessert from my childhood. You used to be able to find slices of it in bakeries, on school menus and in restaurants.
