Fresh Pumpkin, Apple and Oat Muffins

It’s time for gourds and squash to fill up the produce markets! This year I decided to make my own pumpkin puree.  I was inspired by a whole brigade of fellow bloggers who have been posting yummy looking recipes with their fresh pumpkin.  Who am I to buck the trend?  If they could, so could I!  It is really easy, and the flavor is amazing.  If you have never done it before, may I recommend it?  You will thank me.

Onion, Apple, and Bacon Tart

I love savoury tarts. They are so nice for lunches, light dinners and are perfect for a brunch.  What I love about a savoury tart, aside from how nice they are to eat, is how you can vary the fillings to suit your taste and what you have on hand. This tart was born out of what I had on hand.  I had a bag of sweet yellow onions, a bag of apples, and some lovely thick cut bacon.  I also had some fresh eggs, courtesy of my new blog pal...
