Fruit Tart & Happy Birthday Dad!

Pin It Now!

I'm reposting one of my favorite summer desserts today!  It's a fruit tart that is so yummy and so easy to make.  It always gets rave reviews and that's before they even taste it!!!  Trust me though, it tastes as good as it looks!
The recipe is from Paula Deen  Click here !


Yesterday was my dad's birthday!  He reads my blog (and all the comments you leave) every day so can you all wish him a happy birthday! I know it will make his day!  Thanks!

Happy Birthday Jack - sending a big hug your way. I sure miss our monthly visits at the DeAnza flea market but I think of you often, especially when I look around my house at all the wonderful things you have made for me.

Happy birthday Dad! Now Dad, we have to talk about exactly why your darling daughter would feature a fruit tart and Dad all in the same breath!!! Maybe next year you can talk her into something macho like a power tool and Dad.....Ya, that would work LOL!

Have a great day!!

Happy Birthday Cindy's Dad! You are lucky to have each other. I write this as I am sitting at my Dad's old desk, that is now in my office (with a computer on it of all things!) and remembering him.

Happy Birthday Mr. Cindy's Daddy!!! I just lost my Daddy on July 3 to a sudden heart attack as he stood in the bathroom. Never took a prescription in his 80 years, had a hospital stay and maybe went to the doctor a handful of times. I am deeply saddened daily and am learning to cope. So this is especially "healing" to be able to wish another "Daddy" a special Happy Birthday. I hope your day is very nice!! I'm glad Cindy shared your special day with us.

Esther Sunday said...

Happy Birthday, Daddy Romantic Home!!!

Cindy - I know you do, but hug your dad extra hard for me today... I am processing of supporting my family through my father-in-law's final days. Dads are special, special people.

Roses are pink,
Hydrangeas are blue,
Today's a great day
To say "Happy Birthday" to you!

We just love your daughter, so I know we would love you, too...have a wonderful birthday and many more!


To be able to wish your dad a HAPPY BIRTHDAY is especially meaningful to me since I lost mine in 2002 and it is just as painful today as it was then. So, HAPPY BIRTHDAY Cindys' DAD, you will never know how much your daughter has helped me since my dads' death. You are very lucky to have such a great daughter, PLEASE give each other an extra HUG to each other from me. Your carpentry is just gorgeous by the way!

Happy Birthday Cindy's Dad! She speaks of you in the same way that I speak of my dad - seems that we are both 'Daddy's Girls'. I hope you had a great celebration of your day!

Susan said...

Wow! That fruit tart looks yummified.

Happy Birthday to your Dad, Cindy. If I were there, I'd sing him a special birthday song. The words go like this:

On the day that Jack was born.
On the day that Jack was born.
On the day that Jack was born,
The angels sang and they blew
on their horns
And they danced, and they danced
And they smiled and raised up their hands
On the day
On the day
That Jack was boooorrrrrrrnnnnn!

Have a great birthday and new year of life! Susan

Joanne Kennedy said...

Happy Birthday Dad! You sure raised a wonderful daughter.

She is very proud of you. One can tell by how she has written about you in the past and shown the lovely work you have done on things such as her bird house table, shelf and chalk board.

Hope this year is a great one!

Happy Birthday, Cindy's Dad! Your daughter thinks the world of you!

Penny Sue said...

Hey there you,

I see and understand the fruit on top, but what is underneath? I would really like to make one, but don't have a recipe for anything good under the fruit. Also, what is the crust? Could you give me the recipe? You probably gave instructions, but I don't have the time to go through all the comments to see if you did. So sorry. Happy Birthday to Cindy's Daddy! Hope you had a great day!
