Every day, Marie shares a new recipe on her blog, along with charming anecdotes that make you wish you were her neighbor in the English countryside.
I've made quite a few of her recipes like- Potato Pie, Bacon Cheeseburger Skillet Casserole, Lemon Chicken, Cheesy Baked Rigatoni, and this:
Homemade lemon curd.
Seriously, this is the best lemon curd you will ever eat. Silky, with tiny little bites of lemon zest and the kind of tart and sweet combination that makes your mouth deliriously happy. I made mine with the Meyer lemons my sister brought to me (that she picked from her father-in-law's backyard tree!), along with fresh eggs supplied by the girls. Their yolks are such a brilliant orange color that it made the lemon curd look as though I had added a bit of yellow food coloring. Be assured that I did not. It's just good, old fashioned rich and luscious egg yolks. If you make the lemon curd, you must also make the Lemon Drizzle Cake. Trust me, just trust me. I don't have a photo because, well, we ate the whole darn thing before I thought about snapping one.
Every recipe has been met with raves from my family. Even the picky ones! There's something about English food that immediately makes you feel all homey and warm. It is truly quintessential comfort food at its best.
Pop on over and visit Marie and her wonderful kitchen full of magical recipes. Your family will be so thrilled that you did. Your waistline, however, may never be the same again!
Oh, and you can also visit her other blog, A Year From Oak Cottage, where she shares insight into the sweet gal that she is and shares yet another recipe! If you want to see what else this multi talented girl is up to, visit Blossom Time Creations, where you will find Marie's artwork and dolls.
Really, I don't know how she does it all, but I'm so glad that she does!
