This delicious lemon curd is truly the the food of the gods and takes just 20 minutes to make.  You could use it fill a light, fluffy sponge cake or lemon roulade, dollop onto freshly baked scones or use as a decadent filling for dainty sandwiches-white bread, no crusts of course. Personally, I found it very difficult not to eat the whole lot directly from the jar……not just me..I had to wrest it from my husband as well.

The curd is made in small jars as it doesn’t keep well although this is academic as you won’t be able to resist it for long

 

Try it and you will never look at a bought jar of bright yellow, gloopy lemon curd in quite the same way.

Homemade soup is a joy to eat and never fails to raise the spirit-not to mention keeping you warm inside.

Homemade it has a bright and fresh flavour. You could add torn basil leaves and  spice it up with a little chilli powder. For a more substantial meal try these homemade croutons. They transform any soup.

This soup is lovely to eat, keeps you warm and is cheap to make………..a win win situation. Here is my homemade soup made with love for you…
