I am such a lemon lover. It seems I migrate toward just about anything savory or sweet having a lemony taste. I got such a hankering this morning which I was up at dawn making this Tart Lemon Bread.
I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether it’s bread or dessert. Either way, it’s delicious!
I’ll have to wait a few months for fresh Arkansas strawberries to enjoy Strawberries with Lemon Curd, but I could honestly eat that curd straight from the bowl.
One of my favorites cakes was featured on the Arkansas Women Bloggers web site a few years ago. It remains in my top ten of desserts after all of these years. The Best Meyer Lemon Cake truly is the best, y’all.
When I’m craving just a touch of sweet, I’ll often go for these Meyer Lemon Madeleines when Meyer Lemons are in season.
Or, if I’m really lucky and my Meyer Lemon tree has produced, I’ll definitely make Meyer Lemon Glazed Angel Food Cake.
My friend, The Park Wife‘s sons have taken a special liking to my Tangerine-Lemon Jelly so I always try to make some up just for them and to pass around the neighborhood at Christmas. It brings just a hint of summer to those chilly winter days.
Are you looking for a dessert that seems extra fancy but isn’t fancy to prepare? Then my Lemon-Ricotta Crepes are just what your need.
And one of my absolutely most favorite cookies combines lime, lemon and lavender! How’s that for perfect alliteration? The smell of these Lime, Lemon and Lavender Shortbread Cookies will send your kitchen into scent heaven.
Lest you think I’m only about sweets, here’s Farfalle with Shrimp, Asparagus and Peas in Lemon-Basil Cream Sauce. Oh my goodness, y’all. My mouth is watering now.
And I could eat this Meyer Lemon Vermicelli with Royal Reds for just about every meal.
And I’m only getting started!
