Hi there! And welcome to my new-look blog. It seems that today was the day for makeovers, for not only did BBB get a new face, I finally got around to getting my hair highlighted (long overdue, let me tell you!) Another thing I should turn my mind to more often? Lemon meringue pie. For I always talk myself out of making it, due to the various elements involved. When, in reality, the whole process from start to finish can be quite cathartic, and there is nothing more pleasing than watch such a dessert come together over the course of the day. From the pastry – that is created, rested, rolled and then rested again. Baked until golden brown. To the lemon curd – and its gorgeously vibrant hue. Poured into the baked pie shell, and allowed to set. Before being finished with luscious clouds of meringue, and baked a little more, until the top has started to brown. Once I have the finished product before me, its hard not to feel accomplished. For while this dish does take a bit of time to create, the end product is both beautiful in looks, and scrumptious in taste. Yes, Mr Lemon Meringue, I should make you more often. And yes, Mrs Hairdresser I will try to not leave it so long between visits. Hopefully. What about you? Do you get to the hairdresser regularly?

WOW – I LOVE the new blog look, it's lovely!!!
The RSS feed is pretty fail .. the images all bunch up and the text gets squeezed over to the right .. :(:(
That's happening outside of the feed as well. Bummer.
Really???? Oh dear I will try and fix it – thanks for the heads up!
your blog looks great – and so does the tart
New blog (and that tart) both look amazing!
That new look of meringue is great.. Makes me droll.
We tend to leave the meringue off and just have lemon tart but I do find making lemon curd oddly relaxing. This looks stunning!
