Lemons are an interesting fruit – on their own, they’re so sour they’re almost punishing to your tastebuds, but when you add sugar and put them in baked goods, they basically taste like sunshine. Rock on, lemons, you make everything better.

This is my favorite no-frills recipe for lemon curd. Just lemons, sugar, and eggs. And there’s no butter here, so it’s practically a health food!

I’m kind of over peanut butter. That’s right, I said it. Yes, it’s delicious, but I think I’m going to give it a rest for now and explore all the other options for nut butters – specifically walnuts.

Of all the nuts, I feel like walnuts kind of get shafted. Almonds are great for snacking, peanuts are for peanut butter, pecans are kind of fancy, and walnuts are kind of the middle child that everyone forgets about. They’re delicious and healthy in their own right, but I feel like they get overshadowed by all the other types of nuts out there.

Don’t worry, walnuts. love you. I love you so much I’ll toast you in the oven and grind you up into a paste. If that’s not love, I don’t know what is. It’s funny how quickly sentiments can descend into serial killer territory.
