Lemon Meringue No-Bake Cheesecake

Lemon Meringue No-Bake Cheesecake

A delicious marriage of lemon meringue pie and no-bake cheesecake!

If you make your own lemon curd, you will come out about even on the eggs, since lemon curd only uses yolks and the meringue topping only uses whites.

I like to line the inside of my springform pan with a 4” high acetate strip before adding the cheesecake filling (after cooking the crust). Sometimes these are called “cake collars.” This will help keep the sides of your cheesecake smooth when removing it from the pan. The strip will just peel off of the cheesecake after taking off the side of the springform pan.

Skillet Cod in Scallion Lemon Butter Sauce

Skillet Cod in Scallion Lemon Butter Sauce

I love to cook fish in a cast iron skillet. The filets get a nice sear, cook very quickly, and don’t stick. Deglazing the pan with an easy lemon butter sauce makes a quick and delicious meal.

I used fresh lemon thyme from my garden instead of parsley when I made it this time. If I didn’t have fresh thyme, I would have just used the parsley.

Corned Beef Reuben Casserole with Creamy Russian Dressing

Corned Beef Reuben Casserole

Want to try something a little different for St. Patrick’s Day this year? This low carb casserole has all of the flavors of a classic Reuben sandwich, in a hot delicious main dish casserole.

Layers of cooked cabbage, corned beef, sliced dill pickles, and sauerkraut are covered in melted Swiss cheese, then topped with a creamy Russian dressing. (The pickles are optional, but I love the extra tangy-ness and crunch.)

Bake in a large casserole dish or 9×13” pan for a delicious low carb meal.

Serve hot and drizzle with homemade creamy Russian dressing to serve. I like to kick up the spiciness of the dressing by adding extra Sriracha.

I cook my corned beef in an Instant Pot (70 minutes on high pressure), until tender enough to shred. You can also use leftover cooked corned beef and reduced amounts of the other ingredients to make a smaller sized casserole.
