Put some figs in a tart and you get a figtart + dough recipe

It was a fig season and since I had some spare figs at home, I decided to do something with them. I came across a interesting recipe for fig tart. At home I had only small molds so I made some small tarts.

First I had to make tart dough. This was my first time doing a tart and this kind of dough and I was  surprised how making it ended up so easy.
Ingredient list is on the end.


1. In a bowl mix flour, sugar and salt. Add small cubes of butter/margarine and squeeze that well.

.. continue with squeezing until it starts to look like bread crumbs, like this:

2. In another bowl whisk 1 egg and 2 spoons of cream ( sour cream or heavy cream ) and add that to the flour mix.

3. Beat that with the spoon and dough will magically form :)

Wrap that dough in a plastic wrap and put it in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. It is easier to work with it when it is cooled and hard.

After 30 minutes it is time to put it in the mold. Depending on the size of your mold take a piece of dough and form it into a ball.  Roll it to desired thickness and use a lot of flour or baking paper to avoid sticking. I used both because I hate when my dough sticks to my table. 

When your molds are filled with dough it is time for the fun part of making a tart - fillings. I made my tart with  figs and vanilla cream. 

I mixed 1 egg, heavy cream, flour, sugar, lemon zest, baking power, vanilla extract and poured it over the figs. I baked those in the oven around 40 minutes on 200 celsius (392 F).



- 250g  white flour
- 65 g  sugar
- 150g butter
- 1 egg
- pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoon of cream (heavy whipping or sour cream)


- 150ml heavy whipping cream
- 60g sugar
- 1 egg
- 2 TS flour
- vanilla extract
- lemon zest

and FIGS :)

Enjoy! :)

Product review: Nivea diamond shampoo & conditioner

It is not a interesting or new product but I am doing this as a reminder for myself. This shampoo and conditioner smells nice, and smell is only thing that helps me choose my shampoo. Of course, price is important too. I don't bother with all that text that is written on the packaging, because if I start reading that I end up with dilemma : '' Do I want more volume or more shinny hair?'', ''But I want both!'' ...And then  shopping lasts forever...
So it is  perfume and price, I know that is totally wrong way to buy something, but meh....I am also hoping to switch shampoos with no poo thing in the future, but these last forever when you want to get rid of them :)

 I dont like how my hair feels like after washing with these shampoo and conditioner. My hair ends up shinny and somehow dead , probably from all the diamonds that this shampoo contains. But it is somehow without volume but frizzy  and I have to wash it again the next day :)

So it is a don't buy this product again for me :D

RP : Mixa bb cream review

Tinted moist..whops, I meant  BB creams are thing right now, everyone has to have one. I bought this Mixa BB cream because it said that it is good for sensitive skin and it has anti redness ability and also, mum was paying so then it is easier to try new things, right?

Mine is natural rose shade. I have pink undertone so this fits me. They also have BB anti redness cream shade Natural gold and CC anti redness cream with SF 15 which is white . It is paraben and alcohol free product.


I use it with my beauty blender, after regular cream, and my skin definitively looks nicer after I put it. My skin color evens out, and it gives a little bit dewy finish and I like that, I feel younger for some reason because of that :D


 I have already repurchased another one :)

TV Show one MUST watch


It is a British sitcom. Episodes are 25 minutes long. Sadly it only has 25 episodes, but they made strong impact on everyone that I know watched this show and they remember it. Story is about every day events in IT department in Reynholm Industries. IT department consist of two socially awkward guys Roy and Moss and then, there is also Jen, head of their department / relationship manager who knows nothing about computers or memory or RAM.
I constantly end up on videos like these:


.. list goes on is hard for me to pick out my favorite scene ..

anyhow, WATCH IT CROWD !!!

 It is BRILLIANT in my book!

Somebody watched it already and has favorite clips to share? :)

So we have new number there 2015

First there was alcohol shopping, then there was a lot of crackling noise and heavy drinking and then light started to increase, more noise, more cheer..dogs became upset, friends are drunk and..yay we have beginning of  New Year ..that is chance for making new plans and starting new ways one would say, but I am not planning person type..

First thought on first morning of January: You should stop drinking so much! and if you could measure mornings on first day in new year, mornings would start at 2pm, not bad at all. It was a slow day after ''morning'', half of day spent watching Gone with the wind, and the other half eating of course.  I hope everyone had more fun and less hangover headache!

Happy New Year!
