TWD-Vegetable Tart

I guess you could say this tart is not photogenic.  It looks better in person than in this picture.  I found the phyllo dough a little strange to work with, but I did like the taste of it in the tart.  I liked the crisp flaky crust as a contrast to the sauteed vegetables and goat cheese.  I didn't ask my kids to eat this.  I know from past recipes, that goat cheese is just too strong of a taste for their palette.  I'm not sure if I would make this again, but I definitely will be making something with phyllo dough again since I have almost an entire box left. I will be Googling phyllo dough recipes tonight.

TWD-Baked Yogurt Tart

I was intrigued by this recipe.  Could something with non fat yogurt taste good?  Well the answer in our house was mixed.  My husband did not care for this and he usually likes everything.  I thought it was good (but I have never met a pie or tart I didn't like) and both my kids liked it.  I thought it was a nice substitute for a heavier cream pie or even cheesecake, but my husband declared it "kinda weird."  So I don't think I will be making it again, but I did enjoy making it.  I love the Baking with Julia pie crust recipe, so it was nice to have some extra pie dough on hand.  I used one of the pie crusts to make a Toll House cookie pie as a gift.  So all in all the experience was a good one, even it it was "kinda weird" for my husband.
