Lemon Pie Recipe

The other day my sister and I decided to make a little lemon pie. We've just made one lemon pie before and that was years ago, so I started looking for recipes and, since I didn't really like any of them completely, I took like three different ones and with them I created one I actually liked, so I thought of sharing it with you :)

I'm going to separate this recipe into three parts, just like I did when creating it and making the pie ourselves: crust, filling and cream. So let's begin!

Now a legacy of blood and desire will test her beautiful copper-haired daughter, Brianna, as Claire’s spellbinding journey of self-discovery continues in the intrigue-ridden Paris court of Charles Stuart ... in a race to thwart a doomed Highlands uprising ... and in a desperate fight to save both the child and the man she loves...

My Rating: 5/5

Anna is looking forward to her senior year in Atlanta, where she has a great job, a loyal best friend, and a crush on the verge of becoming more. Which is why she is less than thrilled about being shipped off to boarding school in Paris--until she meets Étienne St. Clair. Smart, charming, beautiful, Étienne has it all...including a serious girlfriend. 

But in the City of Light, wishes have a way of coming true. Will a year of romantic near-misses end with their long-awaited French kiss?

Mockingjay - Part 1 (2014)

I must admit that I wasn’t really looking forward to this movie a few months ago, until the trailer came out… Because wow, that trailer was awesome!

I read The Hunger Games trilogy some years ago and, even though I loved the first two books, I wasn’t a big fan of Mockingjay. It’s not that I didn’t like it, I did enjoy the first part of the book (maybe the first half or first two thirds? I don’t really remember), because… well, there are some things that happen there that I didn’t love and didn’t find necessary, but I won’t be spoiling it for you.
