Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a great weekend… mine was nothing less than epic.
Yes, epic. While I sometimes have a flair for the dramatic, epic is a perfect descriptor for the past 4 days. My best college friend, Jill, got married on Saturday in Philly; on Sunday, my entire family surprised me where I met my new niece for the first time. Ah! You feel me on the epic, right? Lots of smiles, tears, and fabulous memories.
Another week also means another Recipe Redux recipe contest. I love that these contests have been featuring fresh fruits and vegetables like avocado and grapes. Foods that I usually eat on their own, now elevated by these recipes. Whenever I think grape, I think my favorite combination: peanut butter and jelly. Hands down, my favorite bar recipe are these pb&j bars, incredible, indulgent, but far from healthy. This summer I have been experimenting with more raw desserts, so naturally a mostly raw-dessert was done. This tart is a similar to those bars in flavor, just lighter.
As we transition to fall, I am loading up at the market with grapes! Perfect as a snack or paired with sweet or savory options. Grapes of all colors – red, black and green – are a natural source of beneficial antioxidants and other polyphenols. One serving of grapes (3/4 cup) contains just 90 calories, no fat, no cholesterol and virtually no sodium, and also provide potassium and are a good source of vitamin K.
I served these tarts to my girlfriends for wine night so I added some adult flavor: Chambord marinated grapes. If you are making these for kids or want to omit the alcohol, substitute grape juice or just thin the jelly with water.
