My husband and I knew each other for 12 years before we finally got married. During that time we were best friends and helped each other through the good times as well as the bad. One particular evening, we were together with other friends and decided to make these heart-shaped tarts for a homework assignment I had in a college cooking class. We had both recently been through terrible breakups with other people and were feeling a little down. When one of the heart-shaped tarts broke straight down the middle, we joked about our figurative and now literally broken hearts. We broke a few more hearts and laughed away our troubles together that night.
I would never have imagined, that years down the road, I would be making these same tarts with him in OUR kitchen. I did not dare dream that the boy who helped to heal my broken heart would be the one to fill it. Now, this Valentine’s Day instead of breaking the hearts we were filling them – full as can be! We decided to call these “Sweetheart Tarts” and whatever your love story – we hope you will fill yours to the brim this Valentine’s too!
I met my husband, in a beginning ballroom dance class at the age of 15. He was my first crush, my first date, and twelve years (to the day) later we married. Together we enjoy traveling the world, and, of course, going on creative dates! I am a former theatre teacher who now stays at home with a spunky little boy. I love dancing, hosting parties, photography, organizing & chocolate!
