When Life Gives You Lemons


Our three lemon trees in the backyard are currently overflowing with bright yellow lemons the size of grapefruits! (See proof here!)  Last week, having used up all of the lemony recipes I had in my arsenal I went in search of some new ones.  I spent a substantial amount of time on Foodgawker and found an abundance of yummy treats, both sweet and savory, begging to made!  If you’re in the mood for something delicious and citrusy, one of these is bound to call your name!  The first thing I’m going to be making?  These Lemon Coconut Bars from Spiced Blog!  Click through for the recipe!

After indulging in Wurstküche and a healthy helping of mexican food this weekend, this fresh and Lemony Orzo Salad from Fork Knife Swoon looks just right for a mid-week dinner!

When we were in Australia this past spring, I discovered so many talented aussie bloggers.  Everything I have made from My Darling Lemon Thyme has turned out delicious so I imagine Lemon, Honey, + Thyme Sorbet to be equally delectable!

I have heard tales of Lavender Lemonade, but still haven’t tried it for myself!  I think this recipe by Tide & Thyme might be a Friday treat to kick off the weekend!

We have been on a bit of a Mojito kick as you might have noticed– one of the many reasons these Pink Lemonade Mojitos from Verses From My Kitchen caught my eye!

Aaron and I are huge fans of crostinis and bruschettas of all kinds!  It’s amazing how one delicious loaf of bread, when combined with leftover ingredients from the refrigerator, can create something so yummy!  This Roasted Vegetable Bruschetta from The Little Ferraro Kitchen has just been added to our summer rotation.

I have never been a huge fan of traditional potato salad, but this Warm Grilled Potato Salad from Rock Recipes is a must make!  It comes out with the perfect amount of crunch and flavor!

I have been experimenting with new ingredients in the kitchen lately, trying out healthier types of flours and oils.  This recipe for Lemon Cheesecake Squares caught my eye because of the simple and creative ingredients that Rebecca from Season 2 Season Eating used to make them.

I am a huge fan of substantial salads that can serve as a main course– especially in the summer! Corn? Check! Avocado? check!  Lemony Yogurt Dressing? Check!  This Roasted Corn + Tomato Salad from Making Thyme for Health is calling my name.  Loudly.

    Especially that lemon sorbet. It’s starting to heat up in NYC and lemon sorbet is one of my fave things to cool down with.
