It's Lemon Time Pinterest Interest

Posted:
It's full of sugar, yet sour to the taste.  The zest and juice can last for days. Cleaning, cooking, baking and power. It uses can go on for hours. It is the Lemon!

This was a really fun segment to put together. I LOVE the scent of the lemon best and finding about all its uses was zesty. I was juiced to see that it really is as versatile as those wives tales would have you believe. Single gals like myself are always weary of wives tales. My favorite pin turned out to be the dessert pin (who would have thought right?) because most lemon desserts are either WAY too tart or have so much sugar in them I can feel my teeth dissolving. These Lemon blondies, however, were delicious and had just the right balance of pucker lips and sweet lips. Yum! Please enjoy my top Pins using lemons!

Desserts

Lemon Ice Cups – What a fun treat for kids to help with. Adults do the scrapping of the inside of the lemon. Add gelatin with juice and freeze. Kids scrap frozen treat and scoop inside lemon cups. Refreshing and light, perfect for a BBQ.

Lemon Blondies – As a red head I've never been too big on the blondies. JK. The lemon flavor in this dessert is mellow for the yellow citrus.  These were easy to make and the bites held their shape. For Television, presentation is everything and the bites looked great and the icing was just right. If pressed, besides the flavor and texture (two things that are big with me) my favorite part of this dessert would have been using the kitchen gadget that makes me giddy… the hand held electric mixer. Having to pop on the whipping attachments gets me so excited to continue to be in the kitchen. There is something magical about transforming liquids and solids into an airy, fluffy texture. Going around and around is relaxing, yet productive at the same time. Sigh…Man do I love the hand held electric mixer. Thanks to the Lemon Blondies for requiring a swift whip to get them just right.

Give peace a chance,
