I saw some fresh figs in the produce section yesterday and bought them on a whim, thinking that I would make Lidia's gorgeous fig upside down cake.
However, I could not find that recipe on her website, her blog, or her cookbooks (I even went to the library!). Oh well. I still love her.
So I went online (hey, I had a fridge full of figs at this point) and found this tasty and easy recipe by Emeril. Try it! It was a hit with everyone (except the kid who refused to eat his peas - no dessert).
