As I mentioned on Friday, I'm celebrating my 4 year blog anniversary! Oh boy, times flies you are having fun, making recipes, taking pictures and writing posts.
I'm bringing to the party this Old Fashioned Coconut Cream Tart. Such creamy goodness in chocolate crust. These won't last long in your house - they didn't at mine!
More this week on my blogging life and a behind the scenes look. For now enjoy this sweet treat.
