A Tart by Any Other Name

(post, Kathleen Bauer)

Please don't tell anyone, but my pots and pans are talking to me. It always happens around this time of year as the temperature dips and the leaves start falling from the trees around the house. Just the other day I distinctly heard my 9 1/2 quart Le Creuset whisper, "Choucroute would be lovely. Or maybe a nice braised lamb."

As if that weren't enough, the tart pan began chiming in. "Quiche is really easy, you know. And you could use those Jonagold apples for a tasty tart." So it was with some relief that I read a recent e-mail from Luan at Foster & Dobbs and discovered it contained a recipe for an onion and bacon tart. Maybe that would shut that pan up for a few days!

And, btw, it was delicious. Now to silence the Le Creuset...
