Dear Lemons

2 Feb

Dear Lemons,

This is just a note to say I love you.  Also the things that are made out of you (possibly by me): lemon bars and limoncello and limon gelato and lemonade. Liz Lemon.  Other good lemon things? I could use some recipes…

Why hello there...

Love,

MM

    Lemons are the best! Here is what I have been baking lately: http://www.joythebaker.com/blog/2009/01/lemon-drenched-lemon-cake/

    It’s a lot of delicious for not too much work, and the part where you mix the lemon zest (I use a cheese grater to zest my lemons and that is fun also) and the sugar is very satisfying and smells amazing.

    skhor– baked goods don’t travel. unlike maggies, which, do, sometimes travel, but usually only under duress.

    I love lemons too! I just started writing a new blog and one of my first entries is about lemons with carrots…the perfect antidote to winter.
