Lemon Curd

I love lemon curd as a treat. There's nothing quite like it on a scone or toast for breakfast and it makes one feel quite English! With a hot cup of tea... ah, well. It's just wonderful. And easy, easy, easy to make. I would have thought that it was much more difficult, like making truffles or something.

Lemon Curd

4 egg yolks
4 1/2 ounces sugar
3 ounces lemon juice
2 ounces butter
a pinch of salt

NOTE: Use a non-reactive cook pot to make this recipe!

Crack and separate 4 egg yolks into your pot...


Add sugar and salt...


Mix well...


Add lemon juice...


and butter...


Stir constantly over medium-low heat. Do NOT leave your pot even for a minute! And don't allow this to boil either. It burns easily and will ruin the entire batch. Continue cooking until butter is melted and the first bubbles start to appear.


Strain as you pour into glass jars...


Make it look as pretty as you like and store in the refrigerator. And enjoy!

Bella Pamela Aprons

I've recently discovered Bella Pamella Aprons. Yes, these are the cadillac of domestic uniforms! Vintage prints and styles are married with ingenious fit for a darling and yet practical apron. I've seen few others that are so well thought out and executed. A must have item for every adored mother. And if you order by December 19th, Pam's website says she can get it there for Christmas. Here's a sampling of her wares:

The Eunice...

I love the back on it!

The Katherine...
a crisscross back...

And the Nora...

A classic design...
My heart melts when I see these darling children's aprons...

So sweet!!

And to complete the look, a head wrap that Pam calls The Lucy Hair Snug...

If you need this shipped directly, Bella Pamella will wrap it in this darling package for an extra charge. Who wouldn't love this gift?


If my family is reading this post, I'll take the Eunice in the green Dotty Plaid Fabric!
