Do you remember the cookie dough tart crust we learnt before? It’s a tasty crispy tart crust. We’re gonna share with you on how to make a brilliant lemon tart  with our tart crust.

Actually, we didn’t mean to make a lemon tart before, we wish to make a fruit tart that use pastry cream and fruits to make. We just found out some of the ingredients are missing, it’s the vanilla.

While making pastry cream, vanilla is a key ingredient to excel the flavor and the aroma. If we don’t have the vanilla, we can’t make a stunning pastry cream. That’s the reason we changed our recipe to a lemon tart.

After you made the lemon tart, you might notice that it’s not too sweet or sour at all because we changed our recipe to a healthier version that is good to go after you had a brilliant dinner. We don’t want to have a massive sugary dessert after we had our dinner.

As you can see later in our recipe, you may notice that all of the ingredients are pretty fresh and refreshing. We use the lemon juice,lemon zest and fresh eggs to make our tart. It’s because ingredients affect the result of our products.

If we want to have a stunning and delicious dessert, we have to use fresh ingredients to make. you won’t believe the result you’re gonna get.

If you’re still with us, let’s start making a refreshing lemon tart now!

Then, we measure the eggs in a large bowl, we separate the eggs in another bowl because we have to boil the lemon juice mixture and pour into the eggs the make a custard. If we don’t separate them, we’ll burn the eggs.

OK let’s start cooking!


1. First of all, you need to boil some spaghetti at the beginning. We have taught 8 tips to cook pasta perfectly before, you can see 8 tips to cook pasta perfectly.


2. Next, wash and peel the lemon, we just need the zest with yellow color part, squeeze the juice out and keep it. If you peel too deep, the lemon zest will taste very bitter. After that peel and finely chopped the garlic and green onion. For the chili, just deseeded and finely chopped. Then, finely sliced the smoked salmon to ideal size.20180417_111006.jpg


3. Moreover, preheat your saucepan to medium heat, add in olive oil, garlic and chili, keep stirring for about 3 minutes. Be carefully do not let your garlic get burnt.20180417_111344.jpg

4. Furthermore, add spaghetti, green onion, lemon juice, lemon zest and smoked salmon. Stir well.20180417_111503.jpg


6. Afterwards, seasoning with salt, pepper and Thyme. Remember one point, we have reduced time of boiling pasta so we can cook longer time in this part. DO NOT overcooked. The best texture of pasta should be “AL Dente”, in English it translate as “to the tooth”, it means pasta is soft enough to eat but still have a bit of bite and firmness.20180417_111645.jpg


7. When the smoked salmon changed the color, add in unsalted butter, stir until combined. Lastly, adjust the taste again, then remove them from the saucepan and plating. Garnish it by herbs or you can grate some cheese on top. Enjoy!

“Candied lemon”

3 ingredients simple candied lemon

Have you ever tried to make candied stuff, like candied apple, candied flower or other candied items? We love to make candied stuff cos it’s easy to make and delicious.

We went to buy some candied lemon in an old candy shop, we think that the candies are brilliant and we wish to make our own easy to make candied lemon.

Having some attempts to make the candy that suite for us, we want to have a candy that is not too sweet, not too burnt and the flavors of the fruit should remain, the sugary taste should not over the fruity flavors.

That’s not hard for us to figure out the formula to make a fruity candied lemon, we just keep using lemon,skin the lemon, boil the syrup, infuse the lemon and wait for it to infuse.

Finally, we found out the best recipe that suit our annoying tummy. We also tried to make candied apples with this recipe. If you would like to use other stuff like orange,pear or others, you can try to use our recipe to make.

Let’s get started,here is the recipe for making the fruity candied lemon.

Lemon 1 pc

Sugar 230g

Water 250g

First of all, skin the lemon on a chopping board and blanch them with hot boiling water,the reason we blanch it first is to release the flavor in the lemon zest or the lemon skin.

Then, the blanched lemon skin have to soak into a ice water bath so the lemon skin will be tender and soft.

After all, we measure the sugar and water in a small pot and bring to simmer. We put our Lemon peels into the pot and cook it with low heat so the syrup can infuse into the lemon.

Furthermore, We let the whole mixture to simmer for about 45 minutes at least, the longer you cook the lemon,the crispier it’ll be.

Be careful!! the syrup is extremely hot, don’t use your finger to test the temperature or even taste that with you tongue, I tried that before, big regret.

After simmering to the texture you like, take the lemon out of the syrup and transfer them on a baking tray with parchment paper , let cool and enjoy the candy.
