Lemon Curd

You know those days where you want to be anywhere but where you have to be? Today was one of those days. All I could think about was the valuable time I wasn’t spending in the kitchen. Things like hamburger rolls, tart dough, pies, and sausages were rolling through my head. Anything to get my mind away from a crappy day.

Do you zone out in the kitchen? A little time away from the computer and phone with some butter and sugar goes a long way for me. If not the kitchen, where do you let go of some stress? I’m looking for inspiration here, make it good!

It took me three go’s to get the feel for curd. The first time it simply wasn’t thick enough, the second time I cooked the eggs (ew), and the third time was just right. Know that however many times it takes you, it’s worth it. After tasting fresh homemade lemon curd for the first time you may have to have an intervention.

    I’ve only made lemon curd once, and it definitely didn’t turn out as beautiful as yours! Maybe I’ll give it another shot with this recipe =)

    I always look forward to the time I spend in the kitchen over the weekends. Time just flies by as I find more and more things I want to cook! ALthough I’ve never made curd, wonder how many lemons I have in the fridge…

    Ooooo pucker, pucker! I destress in the kitchen a lot! Big stress, little stress … it’s a nice place to be, even just poring over the recipe books.
    I’d eat this straight up!

    OMG. You will have to let me know when you make this!!!! You know I have a lemon problem. I don’t have any other bad habits – just lemon.
    Stress relief – the batting cages. Smack some baseballs or play some air hockey!! Riding horses is the best as long as it is not too hot!!
