About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)


Here's the Dish: Rustic Tomato Tart

I've been on a mad search to find new ways to use all of the tomatoes that are sprouting up around us. So, when this recipe dropped into my inbox the other day, I was on it. This one comes courtesy of Kraft foods, and it is amazingly easy, quick and delicious. It combines two things I love ~ pizza and BLT's, yet it looks like an appetizer you might find on the menu at a trendy restaurant. Gotta love that!
Rustic Tomato Tart
1 ready-to-use refrigerated pie crust (1/2 of 15-oz. pkg.)
3 plum tomatoes (1 lb.), seeded, sliced
1-1/2 cups Shredded Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese
1/3 cup *Mayo with Olive Oil Reduced Fat Mayonnaise (*I used regular light mayo and just added a few drops of EVOO, it worked)
6 slices Bacon
1 cup arugula
HEAT oven to 400ºF.
UNROLL pie crust on baking sheet. Arrange tomato slices in circular pattern on crust, overlapping slices as needed to fit and leaving 1-1/2-inch border at edge. Mix cheese and mayo; spread over tomatoes. Fold edge of crust over tomatoes.
BAKE 20 to 24 min. or until cheese is melted and crust is golden brown. Meanwhile, cook bacon until crisp.
COOL tart 10 min. Crumble bacon. Top tart with arugula and bacon.
Yield: 6 servings
