Honey Almond Fig Tart
The reason this recipe is among the final ones is because of the difficulty in finding ripe figs. When Rich finally bought some, he brought them home and left them on the kitchen counter. The next day they were covered with fuzz! He took them back for a replacement and here they are, baked up in the Honey Almond Tart.
I think a lovely variation of this tart would be to make it with peaches--and peach season is longer than that of figs!

On Rich's birthday, a baked up my first souffle. Actually, this was not only the first time that I baked a souffle, but also it was the first time that I ever tasted a souffle! Dorie says souffles are dramatic but they have an undeserved reputation for finickiness. Her directions were great and the results were wonderful.
