SophistiKat: Dessert of the Month

I love custard and I love tarts!!
Keeping with healthy and refreshing desserts I choose a spring/summer classic.
With the tasty zest of lemon and sweet crust this is the perfect combination.

Lemon Curd  Tart












Ingredients (Lemon Curd)
4 large eggs, plus 4 large egg yolks
1 1/3 cups sugar
2/3 cup fresh lemon juice (about 4 lemons)
Salt
10 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into pieces

Directions
In a small saucepan (off heat), whisk together eggs, egg yolks, sugar, lemon juice, and a pinch of salt until smooth; add butter.

Place pan over medium heat. Cook, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon or heatproof flexible spatula, until lemon curd is thickened to the consistency of a loose pudding, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Tyler Perry's "The Haves and the Have Nots"

Check out this sneak peak of Tyler Perry's NEW show coming exclusively to Oprah Winfrey's OWN. ."The Haves and the Have Nots"




Here's the low down on the show. .
The show follows the complicated dynamic between the rich and powerful Cryer family and the hired help who work in their opulent Savannah, Georgia, mansion.
From the outside, the Cryers are the enviable face of success and wealth, but behind the veil, the family's dysfunction threatens to destroy their world of privilege. Cryer family patriarch Jim Cryer (John Schneider) is a powerful judge whose double life, including tawdry affairs with high-priced escorts, puts his family and political ambitions at risk. His wife, Katheryn Cryer (Renée Lawless), is the ultimate matriarch, portraying a loving and dutiful wife, but she is willing to do anything to protect her family's status. Their son, Wyatt (Aaron O'Connell), is a troubled, angry jock who cares little for his own image and finds himself in…

Stop Fronting and Find Yourself

Discover Your Worth! I froze when she suggested that we head to such an expensive restaurant. It really wasn’t in my budget, but I still heard myself saying, “That would be great!” I didn’t even enjoy my meal—maybe the taste of regret had something to do with it. I kicked myself for fronting and not telling my friend the truth.

Most of us are familiar with putting up a front. There are times in life when we feel like a fraud but it is rooted in a sub-conscious lack of understanding our worth. But sometimes, we KNOW that we are deliberately giving others the wrong impression. Our intent isn’t malicious, but we are ashamed of the truth, so we live the lie.

Pretending tires us out…fast! It’s uncomfortable wearing images that simply don’t fit. Maturity demands that we tell the truth and take responsibility for doing the things that “represent” us.

We don’t have to display everything like a reality-TV show. We just need to be comfort…
