Lemon Curd

I started making lemon curd a few years back, curious to see what it was, since the recipe´s owner said she´d been living in England and could´t live without it! I´ve made it for Christmas ever since. I usually find some pretty jars around and give most of it away as go to-gifts or small Christmas presents. The rest we eat for breakfast with scones or on top of some Pavlova cake.

This Easter we´re lucky to have 5 days off and I´m enjoying my first one today. I made the lemon curd and baked the meringue cake, tomorrow I´ll just be reading a book and eat out if the weather allows it.

So if in Oslo, you´ll see me bouncing around and being super busy in my preppy dresses or my androgyne trousers. I love Brooks Brothers shirts, my husband introduced me to them. And I love everything that´s silk or leather. Right now I´m loving Burberry Prorsum´s Pre-Fall Collection.
