Dinner Fail, Dessert Win!

Last nights dinner was supposed to look like this

Instead it turned out like this

It was a serious fail. The flavor was good, but it looked terrible and took more than twice as long to make as we thought it would. Oh and, it was a bit too crispy.


Dessert redeemed me, it was Kiwi Lemon Cheesecake - Yum! The recipe called for lemon curd, and when I saw how expensive it was at the store, I decided to try and make my own! It turned out great, and this was the end result

It was not quite as solid as it should have been, but delicious non-the-less! Both of these recipes were from Rachel Ray's Everyday magazine. It was exciting making new things, hopefully next time they turn out a bit better :)



  1. That dessert looks amazing. The perfect summer treat!

    1. Thanks! Super easy too, mix 11 oz lemon curd with 4 oz of softened cream cheese until it grows about twice its volume and spoon into a graham cracker crust. Let it sit in the freezer for a couple hours {covered of course} and slice kiwis on top! I hope you make it, and thanks for coming by!

  2. You dessert looks so dang good! I love how you posted what the hamburger should have looked like ^_^ I suck at cooking my husband is def. the better cook but I better learn quickly now that we have a little one on the way (:

    Dearest Lou

    1. A baby on the way!? SO JEALOUS! :) Congratulations! I am a terrible cook, but slowly learning! I just started branching out a bit more and im starting to really like it. Seriously tho, i see no need to cook when soon all you will be doing is eating, sleeping, feeding and changing dirty diapers :)

      Thanks for stopping by the blog, hope to see you around here again!


  3. oh that is a sad burger. but dessert is the best part anyway right?

  4. that desert looks so YUMMY! Gotta make it sometime soon and make sure I have people over so I don't eat it all myself :)
