What We’re Loving: Lemons

Seven Lovely Lemon Recipes

Lemons are so lovely. They can make a cup of tea cozy, cool a hot afternoon, elevate a hum-drum dish, and add zest to an otherwise zestless dessert. Gorgeously tart citrus are a cook’s best friend and a baker’s delight; finding a home in both the sweet and savory, as well as in my heart.

My love for lemons is in my blood—my Aunt Sue was addicted to them as a child and would suck on them for hours (enamel be damned!)—and though I crave them all year long, it is in summer that I simply can’t live without them.

Thankfully, I am not alone in my lemon lust, and these fabulous food bloggers have come up with delightful ways to make this sun-colored citrus shine.

Take for instance, The Ultimate Lemon Tart (pictured above), which effortlessly combines pastry perfection with lemon loveliness. {From From the Kitchen}


There’s no better way to beat the summer heat than with this cool Lemon Sorbet, adorably served in a lemon shell. {From It all started with paint}

Airy and bright, this soufflé-like Warm Lemon Pudding Cake is the perfect end to a stylish soiree. {From Seasons and Suppers}


Wake up and smell these highly-addictive Lemon Ricotta Waffles with Poppy Seeds. Trust me, your day will thank you. {From Joy the Baker}

Is there anything more refreshing on a hot day than a cold glass of Fresh Squeezed Lemonade? I’m just going to go ahead and say no. {From Dine and Dish}


Soup in summer? You bet your sweet tooth, especially when it’s this Greek Lemon Soup with Chicken and Orzo. {From Love and Olive Oil}

Portable pies are a favorite summer treat, and these Mini Lemon Hand Pies just scream picnic in the park. {From Lemons for Lulu}
