Should eggs be refrigerated? I used to and then stopped, as I heard they shouldn't be. Yesterday I was buying eggs at a UK supermarket and their advice was to put them in the fridge. Can you perhaps clarify for me and probably 100s of others who have the egg dilema? Many thanks

As it is the Citrus season in Australia, could you please recommend some recipes of cakes, pastries or other sweets using fresh lemons? I remember watching the latest series- Nigella Kitchen- where there was one with lemons and almond meal (ground almonds) - it looked fantastic! Thank you Patricia - NSW Australia

I have tried with various recipes to make cream cheese icing, and each time, the icing has turned out too runny to 'frost' a cupake or carrot cake. I've tried using full fat cream cheese and the correct proportion of cream cheese to icing sugar, but still no success (e.g. 125g cream cheese, 250g icing sugar, 2 tsp lemon juice). I've tried using an electric mixer and by hand. Many thanks.
