Hi folks. I’m pleased as punch to be guesting for Rachel today. I remember what it’s like to have 2 wee ones in the house. Life gets hectic with kids. As a stay at home mom for 24 years, yes you read that correctly, I can totally relate to trying to juggle kids and life. I think Rachel does an amazing job.
I knew what I wanted to make today right away. I had taken a trip to Toronto not too long ago and picked up 2 bags of beautiful meyer lemons. They were gorgeous and quite honestly the colour of them blew my mind. The ones we get locally are never as fabulous as the ones I picked up at the farmers market in Toronto. I brought them home, proceeded to get deathly ill with the flu, and almost lost my window for these little beauties. Luckily I recovered just in time to still make the most of my gorgeous lemons.
Knowing most moms like quick I was torn on making curd. In the end I decided it’s not that time consuming or difficult, and totally worth the little bit of effort it takes to squeeze the heck out of the lemons. So I turned the curd into a simple parfait in cute little cups. I mean everything is cuter in tiny little shot glasses right.
I’d like to thank Rachel for having me today. It was a total pleasure. Also an even bigger thanks for allowing me some extra time to recuperate.
Hope everyone gets a chance to try these little cuties out. You could swap out with lemon mousse or lemon cheesecake. You could also swap out simple syrup and use a lemon alcohol. That would be smashing for a party. Also the base can be mixed up by using nilla wafers or any fun cookie you love. I quite frankly realized after that they might have been prettier if I had just used a graham crumb base. Live and learn.
Toodles and smoochies. xx
Thanks so much Kim! Can’t wait to try these!
