Lemon Orzo Salad

image

  Awhile ago when I wrote about lemon cookies and my new obsession with lemons, I mentioned that there was another great lemon recipe from the same source that I wanted to share with you. Finally, weeks later, here is the second recipe. It’s a...

Coconut Granola Bars

image

We are addicted to homemade granola bars in our house. I’m always experimenting and trying new recipes and adaptatations (although I think Mike would be happy with chewy granola bars every day for the next 15 years). That’s one of the great thing about...

Homemade Hostess Cupcakes

image

How cute are these?? I can’t get over how they look just like hostess cupcakes! Seriously, has a baked good ever made you happy? Every time I think about these, they make me smile I saw these on a fun food blog called Bake at...

Cheddar Scallion Drop Biscuits

image

I love biscuits. Soft, buttery, and flaky, it really doesn’t get much better than that. I’m not sure why I’ve never experimented with baking my own biscuits. Maybe it was that I didn’t own a biscuit cutter until about a week ago. Or maybe...

Jennie’s Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

If you’ve read my blog for any length of time, you know that I’m on a search for the perfect chocolate chip cookie. It means something different to everyone, but for me, it’s thick, chewy, buttery, and full of chocolate. I actually really want...

Margarita Pizza

I wrote about this pizza a long time ago, but it’s so good I really think it needs a new post (and some updated pictures…if you click back to the old post, please don’t laugh). We love this pizza. Love it. In the summer,...

Lemon Yogurt Cake with Strawberry Coulis

image

This is the cake that got me started on my lemon obsession this spring. I saw the cake on Smitten Kitchen and made it (with a few adaptations) the following weekend. It was delicous, but a little different than I expected.  I took it to...

Herbed Yogurt Spread

image

This is a great quick and easy appetizer. The combination of tangy yogurt, fresh herbs, lemon juice and a few other seasonings creates a great fresh tasting dip for crackers or vegetables. It’s quick to throw together, and, as an added bonus, it’s really good for...

Lemon Drop Cookies

image

I bought some lemons a few weeks ago to make a lemon yogurt cake. They were on sale, so I figured why not buy a whole bag? Since I only needed 1 or 2 for the cake, I’ve been on a mission recently to find...
