Citrus Curd Tart - just a posh name for Lemon Meringue!

I love lemon meringue pie but had never made one before.  Met a friend in Portlaoise on Saturday and of course i had to pop in to TK Maxx and spent an hour in the kitchen section.  Had to physically stop myself from spending a pile of money but 9.99 for a professional tart tin seemed reasonable so i did not resist!
I followed Jamie Olivers recipe for tart and have to say it was delicious.  Sweet and crumbly pastry and tangy lemon curd, gorgeous.  Will definitely be making it again soon.  New tin has me looking up loads of tart recipes, sweet and savoury, so will be tart overload for a while!!

Ok here i go!!

So this is my very first attempt at a blog so bear with me as i will prob be all over the place.....

I had my third and final child five months ago and since then i really feel like MY time is starting now, before this i knew i wanted another child to complete the family and now she is here i am so content. I need to start thinking about what i want to do when i have more free time and i definitely want it to be food related.  I love baking and there is nothing i like better than trying out new recipes.  I am in the process of losing baby weight and am almost there so i try and only bake once a week otherwise i will be in trouble with my waistline!

My children are almost 8, just turned 3 and 5 months so they provide great entertainment for us in the house and no doubt you will be reading some of the funnier conversations on here.  My hubby is an accountant and an arsenal fanatic but most importantly a brilliant Daddy and husband, we so lucky to have him but of course he also lucky to have us!!

Need to figure out how to upload some pics of my recent baking so ciao for now!
