Lemon Curd

Lemon Curd

The days of early spring are often gray and gloomy, so one day, we decided to whip up some liquid sunshine, aka Lemon Curd. The name probably doesn’t sound very appetizing, but trust us, it’s amazing. Lemon, sugar, butter, and egg blended into a sweet yet tart creamy spread - what’s not to like? It’s versatile, incredibly simple and sweet/bright/tart flavor pairs well with biscuits!

Sarah's Strawberry Shortcake, the Power of Nostalgia, & Being Too Competitive

My lovely friend Sarah, born on the 4th of July and one of the best Americans I know, was telling me about her birthday traditions on a recent visit. Sarah casually mentioned Strawberry Shortcake was her birthday dessert of choice. After much interrogation I asked her if she would let me make her MY strawberry shortcake. But what she didn't realize is that I rather selfishly wanted to make the best strawberry shortcake she's ever had.
