Lemon Chickpea Cake

Lemon-Chickpea-Cake.jpg

Why would anyone put garbanzos into cake batter?  Yeah, good question.  The recipe was in a little pamphlet from a US Pea and Lentil Commodity Board I picked up at a food conference somewhere. Hmmm…  salads, soups, stews… LEMON CHICKPEA CAKE?

Greek Chicken Frikase–Yes I Spelled That Right

Chicken-lemon-sauce-swirling_thumb.jpg

This Frikase is not Fricassee. This Frikase recipe is Greek – a super tender chicken dish cooked up with romaine lettuce, then swirled (NOT stirred) with a lip-smacking egg lemon sauce. Even reheated two days later, it was still yummy. I just love lemon-flavored Greek eats.

Pucker Up! A Dozen Yumm-O Lemon Recipes

Lemon-recipes-collage.jpg

Here in sunny So Cal, citrus grows everywhere. Farms and fields, front and side yards, pots on porches, stairways and terraces. We planted our tree in Y2K following our major home remodel. I’m the tree trimmer and keep it just a little taller than Larry. It took some years to become prolific but now… Got […]

Mini Glazed Lemon Corncakes

Holy Moly, these Mini Glazed Lemon Corncakes are fab!! {TWO exclamation points.} Dense, moist, lemony, sweet. Here’s the brainstorm… first, a too-large bag of cornbread mix in the pantry, left over from Easter. Next, lemon tree, loaded with fruit. I was on my 3-mile Sunday walk (good girl), pondering cooking (natch). There HAD to be […]

Chicken with Olives and Lemons

It was a dark and stormy night. Well, truth is, it was a sloppy wet January Monday afternoon; we aren’t used to rain here so we make a big thing out of it in LA. And rain makes me want to cook. Chicken with Olives and Lemons was my plan, using edibles from the yard. […]

The weekend of my dad’s 87th birthday is also the weekend of Camp Blogaway with 90 passionate foodies in the local mountains. The conflict, of course, is how to not be a jerk of a kid. WHEW, Cousin Wendy hosted Easter at her house, which gave me a visit with my pop. ACK a gift!!  […]

Easy Meyer Lemon Curd

This is a sneaky trick. In my recipe binder there is a stunning magazine lemon custard recipe, which is baked in a water bath. I hadn’t made it yet, but had every intention. That is, until my friend Sandy told me her mother (native Californian, Meyer lemon tree owner) would make the lemon meringue recipe […]

One Glass of Fresh Meyer Lemonade

Too many lemons. I was telling friend, Sandy, about a giant box of Meyer lemons that showed up on my doorstep, catching me off guard. They were a prize for my Glazed Lemon Poundcake post; a recipe that totally ROCKS. Sandy grew up in Orange County (where orange and lemon groves took up the majority […]

Greek Lemon Orzo Soup

A Greek encounter this week: exchanged a quick pleasantry with actress Rita Wilson, but I won’t tell you where (hey, this is LA, celebs are everywhere). I love Greeks and I love Greek food, thanks to college pals, brothers John and George (who were my high school pals, too). Their Yayas cooked yummy stuff for […]

Lemon Lentils

Autumn ~ the automatic trigger for my tummy to crave comfort food. Ordinarily, that means mashed potatoes or mac n’ cheese, but the ol’ hippie in me decided to cook lentils with lemon. Larry scarfed them down, and he doesn’t have an ounce of hippie in him. Lentils are legumes. Cheap eats. No soaking. Nutritional […]
