Living up to the Expectations

Today I've spend time thinking about this blog.
That maybe starting a blog wasn't the wisest thing I've ever done?
I love the thought of having a blog and I often, for instance when I'm on my way to work, think about all the things I'd love to post here and tell the unfortunate (or let us be positive; the fortunate) reader. Sometimes I arrive at work with an almost finished blog post on my mind. I just never find the time to post any of it. I hope it will be better next year. But exactly that sounds like something someone who never gets anything done says! And I will not be that person.
I'm updating my blog. Woohoo!

I'm always willing to try something new baking-wise and even though I've got a fool-proof recipe for a pear tart that always gives a gorgeous result, I wanted to try another recipe. Why? Because my sister isn't particularly fond of that pear tart, in fact she won't even eat it when I bake it. Now, my sister is a chocolate-lover, "who isn't" you say, but my sister? She's an extreme chocolate-lover. Unfortunately my mum had asked me to bake a pear tart, well, she did say "Bake that pear tart" - and I deliberately forgot that little detail. Instead, I dug through my bookmarks and after searching through countless of delicious-looking cake, cookie and mousse recipes I finally found the recipe that I vaguely remembered:

Chocolate and Pear Tart

I honestly fell for this exact recipe because of the rum in the chocolate filling (;
But believe me, this tart is delicious! It's a good brownie cake on a good shortcrust pastry. With pears! Could we get any closer to heaven?
Luckily, my family and, most importantly, my sister thought so too. I was pleased to see her munch the tart with a delighted expression and a busy smile all over that wonderfully beautiful face of hers.
Mission accomplished.
