Lemon Curd: Lemon curd is a very rich dessert topping or spread. It’s buttery and sweet with intense tart lemon flavor– like a creamy lemon version of jam. Lemon curd is made from simple ingredients and comes together quickly on the stove.


Makes about 1 1/3 cups
Active Time
20 min
Total Time
1 1/4 hr


1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons finely grated fresh lemon zest

1/2 cup sugar

3 large eggs

3/4 stick (6 tablespoons) unsalted butter, cut into bits



Whisk together juice, zest, sugar, and eggs in a 2-quart heavy saucepan. Stir in butter and cook over moderately low heat, whisking frequently, until curd is thick enough to hold marks of whisk and first bubble appears on surface, about 6 minutes.

Transfer lemon curd to a bowl and chill, its surface covered with plastic wrap, until cold, at least 1 hour.

Cooks’ note:
Curd can be chilled up to 1 week.

Disgusting but Delicious Halloween Kitty Litter Box


Great Halloween cake! You’ll need a new kitty litter box, box liner and litter scoop as “props” to …


  • 3 drops Food coloring, green
  • 1 (18.25 ounce) package German chocolate cake mix
  • 2 (3.5 ounce) packages Vanilla pudding mix, instant

  • 1 (12 ounce) package Tootsie rolls
  • 1 package of sandwich cookies like oreos


  1. Prepare cake mixes and bake according to package directions (any size pan).
  2. Prepare pudding according to package directions and chill until ready to assemble.
  3. Crumble sandwich cookies in small batches in a food processor, scraping often. Set aside all but 1/4 cup. To the 1/4 cup add a few drops of green food coloring and mix.
  4. When cakes are cooled to room temperature, crumble them into a large bowl. Toss with 1/2 of the remaining cookie crumbs, and the chilled pudding. You probably won’t need all of the pudding, you want the cake to be just moist, not soggy.

  7. Heat 3 or 4 of the tootsie rolls in the microwave until almost melted. Scrape them on top of the cake and sprinkle lightly with some of the green cookie crumbs. Heat the remaining tootsie rolls until pliable and shape as before. Spread all but one randomly over top of cake mixture. Sprinkle with any remaining cookie crumbs.

Difference Between Blackened Seasoning, Cajun Seasoning, and Creole Spice

Ever wonder…

What’s the Difference Between Blackened Seasoning, Cajun Seasoning, and Creole Spice?

All three spice blends fall under the same category with standard base ingredients, like paprika, pepper, garlic, and onion powder.

However, Cajun Seasoning tends to be the spiciest, while Creole seasoning often has a variety of herbs mixed in.

When in doubt, go with Blackened Seasoning, a spice blend that tends to fall directly in the middle.

Best Ever Blackened Seasoning


  • 3 tbsp Smoked Paprika
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon cayenne pepper



  1. Measure and dump all the herbs and spices in a jar and stir to combine.
  2. Use immediately, or cover and store in a dark dry place.
