    lemon tarts are my favorite. Citarella makes a great lemon tart and it's required that I have one every Saturday.

    I like pies too but I don't buy them often (and never make them). Cakes never seem to do it for me. That super sugary frosting most places use is just awful. Actually, come to think about it, I'm pretty excited for our wedding cake. Taste testing was a definite surprise.

    For most deserts, I'd rather have some ice cream or sorbet.

    in all honesty, i have an enormous sweet tooth, but i usually make fruit-based desserts because my pastry skills are so bad. if you like lemony desserts, though, i will in all immodesty say that you have to try my lemon curd. i worked for a long time on it, getting the right balance of acid and butter. makes a great tart tart.

    I made that lemon curd and it came out fantastic. Super easy, too. I could eat a vat of it, so F you and your calorie count at the end of the article.

    what i liked about the calorie count was that one serving was one tablespoon

    i dont think ppl would eat your curd by the tablespoon

    actually, curd is often eaten like jam, therefore the tablespoon measure. but no, i don't eat it by the tablespoon ... my favorite use for it is as a (thin) filling for a tart.

    I can't wait to make this lemon curd at work and then take all the credit for it as if it was by a random stroke of KSilk genius that such a lovely happening occurred.

    He should have quit three years after college. What a great career and then to stain it by playing for the Lakers.
