Lemon Curd

Last week I got my monthly Rachel Ray magazine and was SO happy with how many new recipes I wanted to try. The first one that stood out was this amazing Kiwi-Lemon Cheesecake. It called for lemon curd so I ran off to the store to buy some, but it was spendy! I started looking online and decided I could do it myself.
Once I got it in my head that I was going to make that dang lemon curd I started seeing it EVERYWHERE. My favorite use for it was on the blog stephmodo. Delicious looking lemon curd shots with raspberries. YUM!




I had to get started on this right away! There were SO MANY lemon curd recipes online, so for my first attempt to make it I decided to go the easy route and chose the microwave version from allrecipes.com. There was a lot of squeezing, zesting and stirring happening in my kitchen that afternoon!








My curd came out good, although it was a bit too lemony for me I think. I want to try a bunch of recipes until I find the one that suits me best.
Wish me luck!
