Easy lemon curd meringues

The Man and I don’t do Valentine’s Day, but it is a good excuse to have a nicer than usual dinner at home and even indulge in dessert.

Being mid-week though, it needs to be simple, plus it’s really hot this week here so a no-cook dessert is definitely the way to go.

I bought these pre-made mini pavlova nests and filled with lemon curd (I had a homemade batch in the fridge – what, don’t you? – but you can buy it from gourmet supermarkets) then topped with blueberries.

Ready in two minutes flat, it’s the perfect dessert for V-Day tonight or for any summer dinner party where you’re short on time.

Whatever your plans, I hope you have a lovely night!

I love you more than

To be honest, The Man and I aren’t big on all the trappings of Valentine’s Day, and we’re definitely not into the roses-and-teddies brand of romance. Surprising each other with thoughtful gestures is more our style.

With that in mind, I whipped up these cute ‘I love you more than…’ notes to leave lying aroud for your main squeeze to discover this V-Day (or any other day, really).
