I have been playing around with this recipe for a while. I originally got the inspiration from Barefoot Contessa television show. I like anything with lemons, and love using them as often as possible. I have made changes in this recipe that suit me.  It is easy and very yummy served with fresh berries. I have also used oranges in place of lemons; it gives it a different flavor but just as good.
