Yesterday was my mother’s birthday but I was busy working so I didn’t had a chance to do some cooking and baking. I am planning to make some noodles and cheesecake today if I have time. I have to sleep first and then do some laundry and etc.
These are called butter tart a kind of pastry and I just discovered that it is best known as Canadian treat. It’s one of 2 of my favorite tarts. The other one is lemon tart. Anyway my parents-in-law came over 3 days ago for my birthday and brought the butter tart. In fact she made hundreds of those tarts for baked sale at their Church. Oh boy! Those tarts are really yummy.
Butter tarts were a staple of pioneer Canadian cooking, and they remain a characteristic pastry of Canada, considered one of only a few recipes of genuinely Canadian origin (for example, by the 6th edition of the Collins English Dictionary). One of the earliest known Canadian recipes is from northern Ontario and dates back to 1915.
Similar tarts are made in Scotland, where they are often referred to as Ecclefechan butter tarts from the town of Ecclefechan. In France, they are related to the much more common tarte à la frangipane, that differs from the basic Canadian recipe only by the addition of ground almonds. The origin thus appears to be unknown.

My sister celebrated her birthday last October 14. We were so busy packing up all our stuff for our move that we didn’t have a big party for her. It’s her 2nd birthday here in Canada since she arrived. Anyway we managed to have a little party. We had some Chinese food and I bought her this cake. I didn’t have a picture for the Chinese food but my sister does. She does blog too you know so you can check her out.
Well as you can see this is my entry for my Food Trip Friday Food Friday and Yummy Sunday. Sorry I missed a lot of you for the past weeks. I was just so busy with the moving and as you know I have a little baby. I’m still busy and I don’t know when it’s going to stop. I’m posting this now while I have the time. I know still Monday night here but my baby is asleep!
Last Sunday August the 3rd we were invited for a birthday party for a 6 years old friend. At first we went swimming at the pool and then we went to the Pizza Hut for the party. We had Pizza of course, lasagna, salad, and this yummy Black Forest Cake. I’m not into chocolate cake but I love Black forest cake. Anyway as you can see there are red cherries on it and its perfect entry for my Ruby Tuesday!
