Blueberry Lemon Curd Tart
It's a tart that is tart! The lemon curd has the great tang of a pure lemon and the blueberries are a yummy topping. So I found all these diy labels on various blogs and websites, which are just adorable. Perfect for a party or photo shoot. A little overkill for family dinner, oh well. This is another one of those desserts that only the tiniest sliver was left over after the four of us devoured it. The curd you can also just make on its own, instead of having to buy it at the store.
p.s. I want a haircut! I have been growing it out for a year only to realize that I like it shorter
