Amazing Carrot Cake

I made Sherry Yards( Executive pastry chef at Spago, Beverly hills) Carrot Cake for my dad for fathers day! The recipe is from her first baking book, which is absolutely amazing. The recipes in her book have NEVER failed me.
This cake was a HUGE hit with my family, everyone loved it. It was incredibly moist, the right texture and spice that a great carrot cake should have. And the frosting? AH, just amazing!
I have no recipe for you today, seeing as i'm a little too lazy to type it all out, but i highly recommend picking up Sherry's book if you can.
Hope everyone had a good fathers day!

TWD: Normandy Apple Tart

Soo I know this weeks recipe was supposed to be the Parisian Apple Tartlets, but we were having a huge laker party at my house, and I needed to make something bigger than just the tarts. 
When I saw the picture of this tart, I was sold on making it! The picture looked just beyond amazing. And it was not at all hard to do.
The finished tart came out wonderful, and I served it with a little vanilla ice cream. Everyone loved it! I would make this again for sure!
Next time, i'll try to make the tartlets, i'm sure those were amazing as well.
