Lovely lemon curd tastes just like sunshine! We’ve been having some rather gloomy, cloudy, foggy days here in Portland.  There has been a lack of sunshine and I was physically and mentally craving some sun.  Since I have yet to figure out a way to change the weather and hoping a plane down to sunny San Diego wasn’t an option this week,  I decided to make some sunshine in my kitchen – lemon curd.  The very sight of a lemon makes me happy and the smell and taste are even [Continue Reading…]

The Best Lemon Bars

This Sunday is Easter and many of you may have ham on the menu.  We’re having pork tenderloin at our house, a little non traditional.   Traditionally people serve their ham with potatoes, usually scalloped potatoes or as we like to call them at our house “funeral potatoes.”   I plan on being non traditional in the potato department too because I am serving these yummy lemon herb roasted potatoes!  Lemon is traditional when it comes to Easter after all. As many of you know I am not a huge [Continue Reading…]
