Surprise! No Chris this week, Rachel posting.

Which is a generous act on my part, as I do not blog. However, Chris has been MIA for the past 3 days replacing the roof on our garage with help from my dad, his dad, and two brothers.

For this month’s Secret Recipe Club, we were assigned Camilla’s blog, Culinary Adventures with Camilla. Her blog has a great collection of interesting recipes from around the world, which made me want to travel (or at least visit a few good restaurants!). Camilla has a variety of recipes with unique ingredients for the adventuresome.

Chris took a quick work break Sunday morning to make this Strawberry Lemon Tart. Then I made him get back to work.

The verdict from the workers who partook was: this was a TART tart! The strawberries were an awesome compliment to the pucker of the lemons. And people went back for seconds. Thanks Camilla for sharing! It made the end of the workday even more sweet. 😉

Ridiculously Easy Tart Crust


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 6 tablespoons butter


  1. Mix the flour, sugar and salt; then cut in the butter until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Stir in 1/2 teaspoon of water with a fork until the mixture forms a ball. Roll out between two pieces of parchment paper. Press gently into a tart pan. Prick crust with a fork to prevent bubbling. Bake for 20 minutes at 350, or until a light golden brown.

SRC Strawberry Lemon Curd Tart


  • 1/2 fresh lemon juice (about 2 fresh squeezed lemons)
  • 2 teaspoons fresh lemon zest (about 2 lemons)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons butter, cut into cubes


  1. Whisk together juice, zest, sugar, and eggs in a heavy saucepan. Stir in butter and cook over moderately low heat, whisking frequently, until curd is thick enough to hold marks of whisk and first bubble appears on surface, about 6 minutes.
  2. Transfer lemon curd to a bowl and chill, its surface covered with plastic wrap, until cold, at least 1 hour.
  3. Pour into cooled tart crust. Top with strawberries. Serve!

      They do go really well together! Can’t say I’ve had them together too much, but this was definitely a complimentary pairing!

    Lemon curd is so delicious and this tart looks amazing. This would be a great dessert during the heat of summer.

    I love anything tarty and lemony like this, and so does my husband. We had a raspberry tart at a friend’s party this weekend and I was so surprised to see him dig into it – looks like I’ll have to make something similar soon!

    I just made this for my girls night tonight. The lemon curd tastes wonderful. I used my gluten free flour to make the tart and it looks delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

      Reading comments backwards here- good to know that it can be made gluten-free! Thanks for the comment (and update as to how it came out!)
