Apple, Goat Cheese, and Honey Tart + CSN Giveaway!

So comforting.

If nothing else this recipe will fill your home with the most amazing scent of butter, apples, and honey... so good.

Pastry can be a bit of an endeavor but in the end I find it actually quite rewarding, especially when your friends ask for seconds!

I received this beautiful Le Creuset tart dish from CSN last week so it was a great excuse to bake something indulgent.

 I am so happy with this dish I received from CSN and I'm excited to be able to offer you a chance to win a $55 gift code to use on anything you like from CSN. They have lots of great stuff for your home like flat panel tv stands, cookware, yoga mats, and endless amounts of other stuff! Check it out!

To enter all you have to do is leave a comment on this post telling me what you would use the $55 for at CSN! Also, post this giveaway with a link to this post on your own blog and let me know about it in a comment below for an extra entry!

I'll be choosing a winner at random next Friday (February 4th, 2011).
This giveaway is open to U.S. and Canadian readers only.

I based my recipe loosely on this recipe from Los Angeles Times.

- 4 medium Gala apples
- Regular honey
- Vanilla sugar
- Sea salt

If you have a little extra time this weekend this recipe is definitely worth a try!

  2. I would get the Babykicks 3G Pocket Diaper in Azure

  4. I'd get some paula deen cookware.

  5. What would I get?! What WOULDN'T I GET! I would love to put that gift code toward some exercise equipment... more than likely hand weights. I already run a lot, but don't do much else! Some basic upper body strength training from the comfort of my home would be good.

    Or else I'll put it toward kitchen things. :) My roommate is the one who stocks the kitchen utensils, but I can think of a few other things I'd like to have ... Like that delicious looking pastry you made. Yummm...


  6. I would get the emile henry bake for the cause pink pie dish! Love baking pies and this is so pretty! :)

  10. First of all, your recipes look amazing! Thank you for sharing.

    CSN rocks! I am a fan of CSN's storage ottomans and decorative mirrors!!

  11. I was so proud of myself, I found a great wood desk on Craigslist for $10. Some sanding, some paint and new knobs will make this desk into my "new" sewing table. I need the Grandrich - FD-206 ST - Swing Arm Desk Lamp in Satin Steel from CSN to make it perfect. I also found some great satin steel drawer pulls that will match perfectly. $60 will cover it all.
