How is everyone holding up in our new reality? I won’t lie, I have cabin fever and it’s only been a week. But to keep my spirits up, I will hang out in the kitchen more and experiment with new recipes.
Our lemon tree is finally having its moment.
I see lemon martinis, in the near future.
Since all of the time is on my side, I decided to turn a a few of them into a non-alcoholic curd.
I used this recipe from Epicurious and you guys, it’s so good. Perfect balance of sweet and sour with the butter coating the palate at the end. So good.
Now what? I had newly made curd and puff pastry in the freezer, after a few searches I came across this; a cream cheese and lemon puff pastry braid.
This was a pretty easy recipe and now that I have a slight grip on how to braid pastry, (it’s a lot harder than hair) I think Kaili will be able to take the lead next time.
The curd was starting to spill out and I wasn’t happy with my pastry talents but…..it all turned out just fine in the end.
Not sure how many servings this is supposed to be; but turns out it’s two….two totally worth the macros servings.
