Carmel Budino with Salted Carmel Sauce

JillPickle:  I first tried a truly delicious dessert called Budino at Lombardino’s Restaurant in Madison.  So after seeing this recipe, I decided to give it a go.  There are lots of steps to this dessert but it’s well worth it.  It makes a lot: 8 cup servings and it keeps well in the frig!


Asparagus and Mushroom Tart Variation

JillPickle:  Katie found this recipe which I have made a few times.  It’s fast, elegant and tasty!  The puff pastry makes it look and taste like a gourmet dish.  For the variation, I doubled the amount of sauce since I had leftover ricotta to use up.  I topped the pastry with tiny yellow tomatoes, prosciutto, roasted garlic and kalamata olives and fresh mozzarella cheese.  It was great!

Here’s the variation.
