Published in EdibleAspen magazine and an award from a fellow blogger!

EdibleAspen magazine approached me to work on some recipes for the Fall edition. I submitted my version of a 'turkey roulade' and also my Grandmother's 'eggnog custard tart' which I changed just a little.I had to put my own spin on it so I modified the ingredient list and the design of the tart. This Cape Malay tart is called a "melktert" and is normally made with milk. I, on the other hand, experimented with eggnog and all I can say is WOW! My Grandmother would have been proud . I hope everybody out there enjoys the magazine and my recipes because I could not be more proud of such a prestigious publication!............Nazarina A

I would love to pass it along to the following bloggers . I am so glad I found you guys and thanks for all your kind words!

I am soooooooo proud of you!!! It is a well-deserved moment - too bad I can't get the magazine here but thank-you for laying out the pictures for me to see... I wonder if I can get eggnog here, maybe I can make it homemade - could you help point me to the Creme Eggnog Tart Recipe?

Nazarina A said...

Thank you for leaving feedback everyone, I appreciate it!!!!

GirlJapan, Click on the scanned picture of the Eggnog tart. I went back and clicked on it and it is legible but if you are having further problems, then maybe I could just e-mail the magazine draft to you. Go to view my profile and e-mail me. I do also have my own recipe for eggnog with a decadent Nestle' thick table cream. I will most probably post the eggnog soon for the upcoming Thanksgiving festivities.
Love,
Nazarina.
