This week has been all about the meyer lemons for us, and I totally support it. Yesterday Kara asked for meyer lemon recipe suggestions and it looks like we’ve gotten some total winners. Meyer lemon pound cake? Yes please! Isn’t there something similar to that at Starbucks? It’s like a lemony loaf and it’s awesome! And now…what better way to end the work week than with a dessert that’s refreshing, slightly tart, sweet and lemon-licious? That was cheesy. :-/
Recently we’ve been making a conscious effort to eat healthier. Lots of fish and vegetables, Greek yogurt, baby spinach, fruits, all that good stuff. You probably wouldn’t know it from our blog though. Even though I did post an awesome and healthy salmon recipe just days ago, it’s just more fun to write about desserts! And I’ll always need to have some kind of sweets in my life, even if it’s just a taste every so often. We made these tarts last weekend then took them to a family party that night, so we didn’t need to feel too guilty. I did try a few bites though and…yum!!
You can easily make this meyer lemon tart using store bought lemon curd, we really like Trader Joe’s lemon curd. But if you’re feeling adventurous, definitely try this out. It’s not hard at all and it made enough to fill all these tarts with leftovers to shmear on toast for breakfast all week.
