Lastest Review for Banished Hero

By Two Lips Review.

Banished Hero by Anita Philmar is a heart-warming story. I was enamored by the depth of the characters and their plight. When I can fall into a story like I did this one and see it through the characters’ eyes, I find myself captivated and unable to relinquish the story until its ending....

Recipe from Last Years - Wild Rose Press Cookbook

Lemon Curd

Discovered this recipe during a holiday party of Heartland Writers Group. Awesome ladies and I had a wonderful time. The lemon curd is wonderful on scones or just straight.

6 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest

Beat butter and sugar with an electric mixer about 2 minutes. Slowly add the eggs and yolks. Beat for 1 minute. Mix in the lemon juice. The mixture will look curdled, but don't worry.

In a medium, heavy-based saucepan, cook the mixture over low heat until it looks smooth. The curdled appearance disappears as the butter melts. Increase the heat to medium and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens. Be patient, this takes about 15 minutes. When you dip a spoon into the mixture and draw your finger (careful, it's hot) down the middle of the back of the spoon it will leave a path. Or, if you're like me and cook with a thermometer, it will read 170° F. DO NOT let the mixture boil.

Remove from heat and stir in the zest. Transfer to a bowl and press plastic wrap on the surface to prevent a skin from forming. Chill in refrigerator. The curd will continue to thicken as it cools.

Covered tightly this will keep in the fridge for a week and about 2 months in the freezer.
