Ah, Memorial Day Weekend.
How do you celebrate the unofficial start of summer?
I go with framily (yes, framily), a BW (bottle of water and body of water), unhealthy cookout nosh masked as bathing suit friendly health food, sun and fun…in no particular order, in that exact order. Think on it.
This five Apple Tart is the perfert farmer’s market apple tart that could be made with whatever apples you can find.
Soaking the apples in lemonade brings out the sweeter side of the fruit and adds the perfect pucker.
Plus, this is 100% All American. If such a thing exists these days…
Quick! Get it before it’s gone!
