New Year’s Goal: Get Organized

New Year's Goal - Get Organized - The Inspired Room

Happy New Year! Is one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2016 to be more organized? If you are like many of us, you are craving more simplicity and order in your life. We see the chaos that occurs when we are disorganized. We are frustrated by the clutter that we’ve allowed to take over our home and life. The New Year offers hope and motivation to start fresh and create new habits. Will you make the commitment to get organized this year?

The real question is, are you willing to do what it takes to move from desiring an organized life to actually living an organized life? Getting organized is one of those New Year’s resolutions we often make in January but forget about by February. Are you willing to commit to the changes that will be necessary in order to succeed all year long?

Let me offer you a simple plan for four weeks to help jumpstart order in January. Come see the plan, I’m over at The Decluttered Home!

Chocolate Tart Recipe

Chocolate Tart Recipe - The Inspired Room

Happy New Year, friends! I was recently invited by Samsung to make one of their Club des Chefs recipes by Eric Frechon (a 3 Michelin-star chef and holder of the prestigious MOF title, which is a rare and supreme honor attributed to only the profession’s most talented chefs). I’ll admit I was a little intimidated at the thought! But when I found out the recipe was for a Chocolate Tart I couldn’t wait to take on the challenge because … CHOCOLATE.

My girls and I had so much fun making our tart! It didn’t take long at all to put together. While we did have one teeny tiny incident attempting our first crust from scratch, it was our own fault (note the Chef Eric’s wise and experienced recommendation in his recipe to use pie weights or beans to keep the crust from slipping if you make the crust from scratch, so don’t try to leave that step out, ha). Fortunately we recovered and our finished tart turned out so beautifully, definitely beyond our expectations!

Check out our little video, above!

If you want to garnish your tart, try a dusting of powdered sugar for a snowy effect, mint leaves for a little color and pretty texture, or even berries, whipped cream or chocolate shavings!

This chocolate tart is really easy to make and so rich and delicious, you could whip one together this week for a New Year’s party or for any gathering and be everyone’s favorite person!

Find the original delicious Chocolate Tart recipe here! NOTE: This recipe is not listed in U.S. measurements, so here’s my simple recommendations for an adaptation, below:

Crust:

Use your favorite brand of pre-made pie shell for a quick shortcut! Marie Callender is delicious and easy. Bake according to directions on package for a no-bake pie.

Filling:

Melt 10-12 ounces Dark Chocolate Baking Chunks (67% cacao).
Add about 2 Tablespoons of butter and stir to melt.
Remove from heat.
Pour in about 10 ounces of heavy cream (300 ml) and stir.
Pour chocolate mixture into crust.
Put tart in fridge 30 minutes or until firm.
