delicious...


Lemon that is...

I made my first on Friday night and I can't believe it took me so long.

I've really no excuse, although I must confess to tending to avoid things that require whisked egg whites, I've no idea why.

I used the recipe from this book which I've been using a lot lately, it really is so good. I'm working my way through many things that I've always wanted to perfect {baked cheesecake} or try for the first time {would you believe roast chicken?}

I know I have my gran's recipe for lemon delicious tucked away somewhere. She worked as a cook in nursing homes for many years so I know her recipe will be perfect for when I need to make lemon delicious for 40 people instead of 4. It's because of her that I still use my trusty old electric hand beater, the kitchen tool she always used... the one that always fills me with nostalgia everytime I fish it out of the cupboard.

That's the thing I love about being in the kitchen, that feeling of connection with my gran, with my mum and my sister as we share a recipes and advice, and with my daughter who stands beside me on the stool to help.

So the lemon delicious was really good,

perfect in fact for a cool autumn night.

I'll certainly be making it again

soon,

maybe to serve after a dinner that's been made in this...


Thank-you all for your advice,

I'm a lucky girl...
