With a rich, buttery pastry and the zing from two lemons, this dessert recipe is the perfect mix of sharp citrus and sweet indulgence. Make ahead for a Spring or Summer dinner party, dusting with extra icing sugar to finish.

my little food blogging office.


One of the most exciting parts about buying my first home (except having a kitchen all to myself...) was the idea of creating a new blogging space. With the rest of the house fairly neutral, thanks to the good taste of the previous owners, I wanted to make the smallest bedroom into a bright and creative office space to spend my time blogging and working on freelance projects. It's just about come together now, so I thought it was time to show you my little office.
