Apology Given, Forgiveness Requested

Since we are new to this whole blogging thing, it seems logical to start with an apology. We apologize for making a bunch of mistakes as we try to figure out how to do this (yes, we are reading Blogging For Dummies). We apologize for not knowing how to make the correct links so you can view our recipes, art, and photos (we will learn how, soon, I hope). We apologize for not blogging daily like we should - our blogging schedule totally depends on how much school work we bring home each night. Finally, we apologize if we bore or offend you in any way...and we probably will. Stick with us and we promise this blog will grow and get better each day...until then, we ask your forgiveness for the many bumps along the way.

In the meantime, you will LOVE this recipe for Lemon Posset - it is a strange Italian pudding that is very, very bad for you. Take 600 ml of heavy cream (get the white bottle from Trader Joes and use the whole thing) and mix it in a saucepan with 2/3 cup sugar. Turn the fire on medium and bring to a boil. The minute it starts boiling, set your timer for 3 minutes exactly - no more, no less. After 3 minutes, remove from heat and stir in the juice from 2-3 fresh lemons (if they are small, use 3). Pour into bowls and refrigerate for a few hours. This is weird, I'm warning you, but delicious as well. It has a thick layer on top and a thinner, runny layer on the bottom, and, yes, it is supposed to be that way. We first ate this at our favorite restaurant in London - Pret A Manger. I never thought I'd be able to reproduce it at home, but this recipe is exactly right. A little goes a long way, but I swear I could eat the whole thing.
