Guest Post #3: Homemade Lemon Curd

Bonjour mes cheris, get excited for me! After I finish these exams I am wading through right now, half of year 12 will be forever finished and over with! YAY!

Mais non, focus, FOCUS! It certainly is not over yet no matter how much I dream about year 12 formal. Ah, c’est la vie!

Anyhow, while I am not here to give you recipes, tips, tricks and well, my blog, I have some pretty fan-friggin-tastic fabulous chefs lined up to do so instead! A whole range of dishes for you to enjoy while I am on this undesired break 😉 – You won’t even notice my absence I promise!

See you soon for the April holidays and wishing you all a marvelous Easter break! Promise me you will chow down on what that Easter Bunny brings you/your chocolate loot stashed in the bottom of your drawer – Yes, I am on to you all 😀

You have met my third guest poster before and I am pretty sure you would remember her well considering she made an incredibly delicious Chocolate Amaretti Torte!

She shows off her range today by changing from a decadent, chocolate overdose to her traditional family recipe which oozes out sun, Spring and lemons!

Please welcome back my friend, Sally from her stunning blog, mybeautifulthings and her Homemade Lemon Curd! 🙂


Hello Fellow Bloggers, I am Sally from mybeautfulthings and I am delighted that I am able to Guest post on Uru’s fabulous blog. My blog covers all manner of lovely things, food being just one of them and today I want to share something a bit different – Homemade Lemon Curd. This is the most delicious confection to spread on toast or crumpets, to fill a Victoria Sponge or a Chocolate or Lemon Cupcake or to use in this Lemon Curd and Clementine Parfait!

Out Of My Control

Ok so I actually had a really cool post planned out for you today, halfway written and everything 😀

Then, you will never guess, half way through writing BAM the computer froze and came up with some weird message. Not good… but then at the bottom I saw an ‘auto recovery angel’ and I just about kissed my computer!

After a quick reboot, I was still grinning to myself.

Popping My Ice Cream

An undoable feat?

I think not.
Almost Bourdain thinks not.
Skye from Masterchef Australia thinks not.
And that is why this ice cream is so swaggering-ly cool.

I am a firm believer in trying new things and sometimes even strange ideas – combining flavours people don’t really expect will give such a positive kick until you tell them afterwards (I put a hint of cinnamon in my mum’s tea once and she loved her tea – I should probably tell her, though I have not done it since)

36This is why you will barely ever see me make the same recipe twice unless it is my staple, and even then I will probably adapt it in some way. I do believe the only recipes I have made and stayed with have been my staple original chocolate chip cookies (which could change due to my upcoming cookie dough baking week) and my brownies from Masterchef.
