Lemon Meringue/ Tarte au Citron

I like the taste of lemon. I was about to call my daughter "Lemoni" after I watched the movie Captain Corelli's Mandolin in 2002. The movie is about a love triangle among characters starring Nicholas Cage, Penelope Cruz and Christian Bale. Lemoni was a name of a little girl in the movie. Everyone objected to the name. No! She will be teased, protested everyone. Why? I said. BeCAUSE it sounds like lemon!!! 
Then I thought why not "Moonlight"? Everyone disagreed(!?).

My husband named our daughter after an Indian princess (from another movie/book). Recently my neighbor named their boat Pelagia , the character played by Penelope Cruz in the movie Captain Corelli's Mandolin.

Recently, I am thinking if I were to have another daughter now maybe I'd like to name her "Vanilla"! My daughter thinks it is a cool name and I could name her Vanilla whenever I want she says :)
Oh! I almost forget I have to thank my sister for this recipe. I am not allowed to reveal her name here. Thank you!


  1. ohhh .. thanks for sharing again ... just wanna ask, where you get the pie crust from ah?

  2. I just bought mine from the freezer section in the supermarket. I saw Jamie Oliver did that too on TV, only thing is he went to a different supermarket. I just didn't have enough time between doing the laundry and cleaning the windows. but if you have the time, sure, make your own is great too. I could post the pie crust recipe here if you want , after I clean the bathroom...;)
