Autumn is peeking into our lives ever so rapidly.

The leaves are getting ready to change color.  It’s such a beautiful time of year.  It reminds me of how my mom would lemon cream cookies or thumbprint cookie filled with jam.  We would sit at the table in the kitchen with cups of hot tea and cookies.  Sometime she would even have lemon curd to spread on angel food cake.

My wish is that you make this lemon curd and create some memories of your own.
