Lemon Trifle with Mixed Berries

Still have any Lemon Curd left over? Here’s the perfect way to use it up.  This dessert is a cinch to throw together and has a big “wow” factor.

If you want to impress someone, bring a trifle.  In fact, bring this trifle.  You won’t be sorry.


If anything, make this for the lemon whipped cream.

Thank you everyone for indulging me this week on one of my favorite flavors: LEMON!  As for what I’m going to do with the rest of those lemons on my tree?  Well there’s always lemonade, lemon bars, lemon chicken, Lemon Parmesan Tilapia, the list goes on and on!

And for the ones that I can’t use up?  Throw the whole lemon in the freezer!  The pulp gets a little mushy when de-thawed, but the zest and juice are like they just came off the tree.

Favorite lemon tip ever.
