Lemon Curd and Shortbread Bars

Finding California Meyer lemons in Vancouver in the dead of winter calls for a celebration: the kind that involves a spatula dancing around the pot to make curd. This silky smooth concoction is something I could eat by the spoonful, like Nutella. If one can resist eating the bowl clean, I would highly recommend that you lay it on a bed of shortbread and bake into luscious zesty and buttery bites. The curd can be made ahead and stored in the refrigerator or freezer. And you can use regular lemons that are readily available.

Childhood Monkeys and Monkey Bread

An American classic (also called African coffee cake, bubbleloaf, golden crown, and pinch-me cake), this sweet pull-apart bread is like cinnamon rolls in bite size form, but with more cinnamon and sugar caramel with every bite. The homemade dough takes about two 1-hour rising times, but it will be worth the wait. You will be rewarded with gooey, sticky, soft bread after baking in the oven.
