Easy Apple Tart

The kids are craving for apple pie and the store bought ain't satisfying them. Apple pie seems a little too much for me tonight so I thought of baking an apple tart instead. It's easy peasy and ready in less than an hour.

When I went to the grocers to get the ingredients for tonight's dinner, I also bought some frozen puff pastry squares. I let it thaw in the kitchen counter before laying them in a baking sheet and then brushing with some egg wash and scoring the sides. Scoring all four side half an inch from the edge of the pastry will make the side puff up. Here is Mica applying the egg wash on all five squares.

Here is our homemade apple tart. It smells divine and taste great.

This recipe has 6 ingredients and the frozen puff pastry is your cheat here.

5 puff pastry squares thawed but kept chilled
2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
1 cup of sugar
1 egg yolk
2 tbsp peach marmalade
2 tbsp butter

Preheat oven 350 degrees
1. Lay the thawed puff pastry on the baking tray lined with baking paper and keep chilled in the fridge.
2. Peel the apples, core and slice, transfer to a bowl and add sugar, mix to coat all apple pieces, set aside
2. For the eggwash, separate the white from the yolk, beat the yolk and discard the white or keep for later use, add 1 tbsp water to the yolk and mix
3. Take the pastry from the fridge and brush with some eggwash, score the pastry on all four sides.
4. Take the apples and spoon to the pastry, arrange the apples in the middle
5. Add small squares of butter on top - 2 on each squares
6. Pop into the oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes
7. Once it's cooked, transfer to a wire rack
8. Glaze with warm peach marmalade on top (in a small bowl, add 2 tbsp of peach marmalade and 2 tbsp of water and heat for few seconds in the microwave)

Serve it warm or cold, i's best for breakfast, snack or dessert.


  1. will try the recipe sometime. My Kalel would love to help getting it done. :-) thanks for sharing...

How to Apply for Children's Residence Visa Under Mother Sponsorship in Dubai 2019

Dubai, 29/09/2019 For expatriate married women living and working in Dubai especially those earning less than 10,000 dirhams salary per month and whose job description is not allowed to apply for visas for their family, sponsoring their children has never been easy until the recent changes in Dubai immigration rules that took effect mid of 2019 this year. The rule now allows any UAE resident (those who have a valid employment visa) male or  FEMALE can now sponsor family members provided that he or she earns a monthly salary of AED 4000 or AED 3000 plus accommodation according to the Federal Authority for Identity and Citizenship. Back in the day, when I tried to sponsor my husband, my experience was completely different. You can read about it  here . Just this month, a friend of mine applied for her children's visa in Dubai. It was approved, and the visa was issued and stamped on her children's passports. We shared below the documents required and the step-by-step

Sinampalukang Isda (Tilapia/Sea Bream) Pang-alis Umay!

 After Christmas and New Year holidays, do you feel you've had enough of the leftovers? I feel the same way. I needed something to break away from it. The first craving I had was a very Pinoy fish dish.  Sinampalukang isda. Some would think of it as sinigang but it is not sinigang. It is a soup dish of fish in tamarind broth, ginger, chilis, onions, tomatoes, radish leaves or pechay, and of course fish. Okay, it is like sinigang (hahaha). It usually calls for tilapia but I opted for sea bream. It is a completely hearty meal. Of course, to be eaten with hot steaming rice and sawsawan (a mixture of fish sauce and green chili) The original dish calls for fresh raw tamarind but since it is hardly available where I am, I used powdered tamarind. The difference is that fresh raw tamarind gives this dish a thick broth distinct from sinampalukang isda my parents used to cook for us, unlike powdered tamarind. (oh well ex-pat life) So, how to cook it? Ingredients (serves 2) 1 medium-size sea

10 Camping Essentials l Al Qudra Lakes Dubai Overnight Camping

One of the favorite things we like to do at this time of year here in Dubai is to go on a desert camping. Imagine full day sun, clear blue skies, cool breeze, .00001 percent chance of rain while in a beautiful desert landscape. It's a camper's dream. Same time last year, we camped at  Al Aryam Island in Abu Dhabi , also a perfect camping spot. This time around, we didn't go far. We drove just 45 minutes to Al Qudra Lakes inside Saih Al Salam Desert, on the outskirts of Dubai. Al Qudra Lakes is a man-made lake that spans up to 10 hectares and home to more than 100 species of birds including migratory birds. A wonderful place to camp with family and friends We used the Waze app to get there. The only problem was, once you reach the area, it was difficult for the app to help you navigate. We were already going in circles, good thing we luckily found our friends who came early to set up camp. It was dark as there is no lamp post, there is no signage either so it is
