I heart desserts

No faces necessary.

I soooo wanted to do this.  
I combed through all of my favorite cookbooks,
picked out the most photogenic recipes,
made a shopping list, 
and bought all of the ingredients,
but....
this is what kept calling to me.
A bakery-made, lovely, fruit tart.
I've passed this pretty little dessert time after time,
but I couldn't justify buying it.
It's a tad pricey and despite it's healthy appearance,
I'm sure it's just packed with calories.  
No!  I said to myself.

But today, thanks to I heart faces,
I could finally justify the purchase.
It's all for my ART, I say.
Certainly the artistic calories won't stick to this Rubenesque body.
Certainly not.

Thank you, Angie and Amy.  It was delicious!
