Tuesday's with Dorie: Lemon

Bridget from The Way the Cookie Crumbles chose Lemon Cup Custard for this week's Tuesday with Dorie recipe. It received an awful cot of negative comments on the P&Q
So many, in fact, that I was motivated to make it even though I was overwhelmed with Purim and packing to go to the US for two weeks. Even worse, in some ways, to NY, Massachusetts and Florida, so lots of different climates and activities.
However, the majority of people since I joined have been doing chocolate and nut recipes and as those are really the ingredients I hate most, and because I really like flan, those comments actually made me interested in doing it. So I cut the recipe in half and used double the quantity of vanilla and it was great.
The German heartily agreed as we both had it for lunch. I used a bit less than half the amount of sugar and next time I would cut that a bit more, but otherwise it was great. In fact, after I publish this post I will go split the last one with the German:).

I'm glad you liked this one! As a chocolate lover, I sometimes forget that not everyone loves it as much as I do!

That looks yummy. Wonderful blog, I savor the feeling of seeing Expats blogging out my home country whilst being a transplant to Florida myself.
