🍋Lemon Bars🍋.......... Today's attempt to bake myself happy as the last (wo)man standing in a flu-ridden household! (Lemons have immunity-boosting vitamins right?!! )
These tangy layered bars have a crunchy biscuity base and a smooth zesty top layer - somewhere between a baked cheesecake and a brownie in consistency.
The Recipe is below (If you have a food processor these are easy breezy!) #bakemehappy#lemons#lemonbars#easybaking#recipe 🍋Recipe to make 18 Lemon Bars🍋 🍋Line a 22cm square brownie tin with non stick parchment paper. 🍋 To make the biscuit layer, blitz the following ingredients in a food processor to make fine crumbs (or use your hands): 250g Plain or 00 flour
150g salted butter
150g caster sugar
Zest of 2 lemons 🍋 Add 40ml milk and pulse to combine the ingredients into a crumbly dough. 🍋 Spread the biscuit dough over the base of your tin and use your hands to press it down evenly. 🍋 Bake for 25 minutes at 180degrees C until it is set and turning golden brown. 🍋 While it cooks, put the following ingredients for the lemon layer into the food processor bowl (no need to wash it in between!) and pulse until smooth and frothy:
Juice of 4 large lemons
4 large eggs
250g caster sugar
100g double cream
75g self raising flour 🍋When the biscuit layer is ready, pour the lemon layer over, and pop it back in the oven for 15-20 minutes until it is set. 🍋 Leave to cool completely in the tin, then use a sharp knife to cut into 18 rectangles or triangles. 🍋Finally sprinkle icing sugar over the top. 🍋 Lemon Bars keep for 3 days in the fridge, or can be frozen.
#perspective Often times we forget how important it is to turn our perspectives to favor the positive. Perspective is more than just optimism, it translates into the ability to turn not so desireable situations into rare opportunities! Perspective is the reason why winners always win, and losers keep losing. Perspective is what separated the dreamers and idealists from the movers and shakers. Some people say "when life gives u lemons make lemonade".... I @lana_by_grace say: "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade with the juice, patten the recipie and sell it! Take the seeds and plant it, grown your own lemon grove for future production, take lemon zest and top off your favorite dinner dish and enjoy the fruit of your labor forever.... all from a single lemon that was thrown your way to harm/hurt you." Ha! take note of the lemons that were given to @beyonce . that album and record sales will provide for her family for years to come.

Delizia al Limone
A very special dessert. I've just served this up for a table of ladies which followed on from a dish of prawn ravioli, served upon a tomato and courgette broth. Both were very well recieved, not a scrap left, which pleases me greatly. Simple food cooked with care but packed with flavour, it's what my food is all about. There's nothing better than when your guests leave with a big smile, with plans already underway to come back for more.
This dessert is very special as it was my wedding cake. It's a cake that can be found along the Amalfi Coast, using the regions wonderful lemons. I was married up amongst those lemon groves in Minori (where @gennarocontaldo is from) at a family ran augroturismo called Villa Maria. 🍋
No doubt I'll now spend the rest of the day dreaming about my next visit! It's my favourite place in the whole world. My dream is to live in the area one day, writing recipes - sat out upon a balcony over looking the sea, eating the best pasta, the freshest ingredients and sipping beautiful homemade wines all grown and made at the neighbouring agroturismos. Daily exercise would be a walk up and along the old steps and paths from Amalfi to Ravello, Maiori to Atrani.....heaven. 🍋
Happy hump day folks. May your dreams be big and your day dreams magicial....... If nothing else, it keeps us going 💛💙
Rise & shine, fellow entrepreneurs! Ever think about switching out your daily coffee with warm lemon water?
Unlike coffee, lemon water provides a natural energy boost, provides a ton of vitamins, keeps you hydrated, boosts your immune system, and helps you focus & feel more alert! No more midday slump.
All important to kick start a productive work day. Cheers!
Kırmızı limon. Portakalla limonun yavrusu 🍊🍋. Ya da kendini portakal sanan limon 😂. İlla romatiğe bağlayacaksak, sanki bir yaz gün batımı almış başını gelmiş kışa ve limon ağacının dalına konmuş. Turşu oldu-olacak. Tuzlu-ekşi olacak. Portakal aromalı olacak. Mis gibi kokacak. Her sene şaheser olur. Bu sene de olacak. Lezzet tamamlayıcı olacak. Hatta bir sürü tarif ve fikir için ana malzeme olacak 📖😉. Bir de eskiye nazaran farkı bu sene satışta olacak. Ön sipariş alıyorum. Özelden mesaj atabilirsiniz. 🧡👸🏻💛 #tursukralicesi#yutkundundimi#artizantursu#icindekiler#içimizaçılsın
Not: Şubat atölyeleri için tarihleri de bu hafta netleştiriyorum 📣 #tursuatolyesi#tursuaski
