The Meyer Lemon Curd Solution

Friday, July 20th, 2018

ChezHelvetica’s birthday tribute to a Father who loved Lemon Meringue Pie turned out to be homemade Lemon Curd, thanks to a gift of beautiful, fragrant Meyer Lemons picked in Tamalpais Valley and the perfect easy recipe (with video!) from Ina Garten. Dollops of the curd frosted Trader Joe’s Crispy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert on The Day. Then the sweet, tangy Meyer Lemon curd transformed a breakfast of Open Nature Maple Pecan Granola, Fage Yogurt and Organic Blueberries the next morning. It’s all about zest, be it the deep love for a wonderful Dad or a meal with delicious Lemon Curd!

PrideTableSimultaneous celebrations at ChezHelvetica took place on this historic day with jubilation for my gay cousins and friends, and excitement for my niece Aliya soon headed to the University of California, Berkeley. In keeping with this joyous mood, sweet MaplePridePiece Syrup doused a delicious French Toast Casserole made with Challah, Blueberries, Lemon Zest and Cream Cheese; accompanied by Odwalla Orange Juice, Tuscan Cantaloupe, Apricots, Peaches and Strawberries. Open Nature Maple Pecan Granola and luscious Fage Greek Yogurt also followed this rainbow. At the end there was indeed a pot of gold – filled with love!
