      Excuse me, you and she don’t, but your mother and I do!!

    I’m going to send this to my sis-in-law who’s a coeliac – she’ll love it!

    …Oh and I don’t know what to do with my life either. However I take a tiny bit of solace in the comment my grandfather made to me, in 1976 when he’d just retired as a primary school principal. I was not quite eight years old and as I asked to see his retirement watch, he said, “You know, I *still* don’t know what I want to be when I grow up.”

    Mystery question 1 – It’s about momentum. It doesn’t matter than you dis-associated yourself from the moving vehicle. You continue to move as you were doing while in the vehicle. Only the air resistance slows you down until you hit the ground, which you soon discover is NOT moving like you are when you connect with it.

    Mystery question 2 – The track on a CD/DVD is a spiral. It’s read from the inside to the outside. It contains little “pits” of optically intact or “burned” data. That causes the reflection of a laser beam to be bright or dark, according to whether the spot the laser is on is a “pit” or not. This produces the two-state binary signal that is the basis of MOST digital encoding, be it computers or not.

    Mystery questions 3\, 4, and 5 – You need to answer them yourself. I sure don’t know anything about the Beeber!

    Just finished my second-to-last exam … which means one week closer to HAVING MY OWN KITCHEN and COOKING FOR MYSELF, including TASTY-LOOKING DISHES LIKE THIS ONE! Mmmm. Keep ’em coming.

    Your mystery questions immediately made me think of this: http://www.freewebs.com/calvin-hobbes-org/dadandcalvinsrecordplayer.jpg

    I’ve only had lemon delicious once, made by an Australian friend here in Paris, and it was the soufflé kind, like yours. And it was, indeed, delicious. 🙂 So I believe you.

  11. Iron Chef Shellie

    I don’t understand that Justin Beaver (i dunno how to spell his name, this is just what it sounds like) EITHER.
    I still know nothing about him, which makes me think I’m really old and out of touch with the youth of today!

    on the other hand, nice looking pudding!!

  12. Louise

    Oh, it’s widely known that I do lurve a lemon delicious. But I haven’t made one in absolutely years, if it wasn’t mothers day tomorrow and I become incapable of doing anything I could right this terrible wrong. It does always look bad on a plate, somewhat better in a bowl. In restaurants I’ll always order lemon stuff in favour of chocolate (quelle horreur).

    1. whisperinggums

      Oh, me too, Louise … well, in the days when I had a choice (didn’t have to worry about intolerances). A lovely lemon tart makes me drool in a way chocolate mousse or the ilk never does.

  13. Hannah

    L-Izzle: I never thought of these as tugging-at-heart-strings-worthy, but now you mention it… I do feel this proves once more that our souls originated from the same stork-kitchen. Also, shall I make this for us one night? I reckon you and I could polish it off between us, easy.

    Whisperinggums: I’m taking those teaspoons with me when I move out, remember? And the piano. Because, um, they’ll both fit in my suitcase…

    Kath: Let me know what she thinks! And – thank you. Really. I’m having some serious moments of anxiety at the moment, but am coping with them by doing lots of cross-stitch!

    L-Engineer: Oh dear heavens, you have no idea how much I laughed upon discovering your comment. I didn’t expect anyone to answer me! But I still maintain my views on #1, and am sorry to say I cannot computer anything beyond the third sentence about #2. But I am glad you still read! 🙂

    Lauren: This was a bit of a “feeler” post, to see whether recipes would interest anyone! I can’t wait to hear about what you get up to. Also, good luck, congratulations, and happy birthday!

    Camille: I should have known you’d be a Calvin and Hobbes fan too! 😀 LOVE that strip! Somehow, I think if you made a Lemon Delicious, you’d somehow manage to insert a pistachio creme brulee into the centre… right?

    Shellie: I don’t think you need to feel old if you haven’t heard of Bieber/Beaver (I like your name for him better) – I think you should feel smart and relieved! He came out of nowhere, and it/he boggles my mind.

    Louise: Don’t worry, I’m completely with you on choosing lemon desserts over chocolate desserts! I’d like to try making this in little individual ramekins… Happy Mother’s Day for tomorrow!

  14. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    They’re awfully hard to make look good but as you said, one just has to trusts that they are light and fluffy and delicious. And amen to the Justin Bieber love. I don’t get it at all…

  15. Simply Life

    impressive! that is one recipe that seems to be “a good thing to know” 🙂

  16. L-Engineer

    That’s what you get from Engineers. Literal, and always willing to help!

  17. L-Izzle

    Hannah, I could take on that bad boy on my own. In other words – heeeeeellllll yes! 🙂

  18. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    Yay! Recipe post! Guess what…? I have never had lemon delicious. Second guess what? I really want some now. I don’t care HOW distended my abdomen currently is after my ginormous brunch, I want some lemon delicious. Not baking at the moment though which is probably for the best as I might explode if I ate anything else in the next couple of hours.

    I really don’t understand #3 either. Please let me know if you ever figure this out.

  19. Hannah

    Lorraine: Thank you for you gracious acceptance of the awful appearance! And I’m seriously considering a PhD on why teenage girls band together in hyperactivity over male stars with overly-styled hair…

    Simply Life: Aw, thanks!

    L-Engineer: I particularly like it when engineers help me with heater wall-plugs that start melting and threaten to burn down a house-sitting abode…

    L-Izzle: I could do one each… but maybe we should save room for roasted brussels sprouts?

    Conor: Oh, I wish I could make you one right now and walk it up your two flights of stairs! Though glad to hear you’re out-and-about brunching 🙂 #3… *sigh* Hey, maybe I could do THAT as my PhD..?

  20. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    LOL I like it! You could be the first to do a Justin Bieber PhD! Oh please do it, you would make the front pages of the news and TMZ! 😀 Did you hear that when he bungy jumped in NZ his fringe didn’t move-it defied gravity! 😛

    Lorraine: But don’t you think I’d risk losing my will to live if I spent three years thinking about him? 😉 And I don’t like that story about the fringe… the only person who should defy gravity is Elphaba! 😀

    Lemon Delicious was Mum’s favourite pudding to make when we were kids ’cause we had a huge lemon tree in the garden.

    As for what you don’t know…1-5 I so agree with. No idea. As for 3 I’d like to know how to get rid of the stream of ‘lost puppies’ (as my cousin nicknamed them) I have trailing me at present and pass them off to those wanting. Tragic.

  24. Hannah

    Vaala: I’ve never been lucky enough to have fruit trees in the backyard. It’s my dream to one day move into a place that has them already established (what can I say, I’m impatient and don’t want to wait years for them to grow). At least lost puppies are relatively harmless, right? Though if you do want to pass them off, perhaps a more positive name is required. Like… loyal and loving golden retrievers?

  25. Vaala ◪

    I wish they were all harmless but some are unfortunately not (so therefore are not suitable to passing on to anyone that I’d care about…perhaps I should call those ones something more vicious?)…

    You’ve got to have fruit trees…my current flat has orange, lemon and grapefruit trees. My parents’ garden has heaps too but The Chef’s garden is amazing…I would so like to have all the stuff they have growing there. You’d hardly ever need to go to the veggie store. I’m jealous!

  26. Hannah

    Vaala: Now I’m jealous too! Mostly I want a fig tree. And a raspberry bush. And a fuyu persimmon tree.
    Hmm…. bull terriers, then?

  27. Vaala ◪

    Hahaha! That’s exactly what I was thinking!
    Ooo, a persimmon tree would be like paradise.

    What!!!! the chocolate girl’s favourite dessert is not chocolate! that’s just crazy! Even a few choc chips at very least. Well I regret to say that I never ate a lemon delicious pudding that my mum made but she loves it. It is nice to see a recipe appear – hope to see more – maybe that is what you need to do with your life 🙂

    I do admire your airy cloud of pudding in the dish and your honesty with the photo of it served. I bet a gourmet mag would just make it in ramekins so they didn’t have to show a spoonful!]\\\\\\\\\\ (that’s Zinc’s contribution to the conversation).

  30. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    Yayyy, congrats on your first recipe post!

  31. Hannah

    Johanna: It’s one of my little quirks – chocolate cake, pudding, mousse… just doesn’t enthuse me at all! And I’d be all for making this blog and chocolate/recipes/travel adventures my life, if only I could work out a way to finance it… Tell Zinc I said hi! I never knew I had non-human readers too 😀

    Amber: Thanks! If only I was currently living somewhere with, you know, pantry ingredients and a proper oven, I could do more!

    […] on in my misguided belief that all Solely Chocolate desserts are dull. I’m not saying that my Lemon Delicious love has been replaced, but it is good to know that, in the hands of the masters, chocolate desserts can […]
