I've been enjoying making tarte tatin for the last few months - tomato, apple, field of greens....and since I love puff pastry and mushrooms, I tried this one. The onions and shitakes caramelize during the baking giving this upside down tart a rich, earthy flavor. —inpatskitchen

I think I get my love for food and cooking from my mom, who was an amazing cook. She would start baking and freezing a month before Christmas in order to host our huge open house on Christmas afternoon. I watched and I learned...to this day I try not to procrastinate when it comes to entertaining.
My cooking style is pretty much all over the place, although I'm definitely partial to Greek and Italian cuisine. Oh yes, throw a little Cajun in there too!
