Pucker Up! A Dozen Yumm-O Lemon Recipes

Lemon-recipes-collage.jpgHere 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 Lemons?  Mmmm lemon recipes!

Since launching Worth The Whisk in April ‘09, I’ve posted more lemon recipes than chocolate, maybe because the lemons are free {frugal me}. Most recently, I published these Mini Glazed Lemon Corncakes – cute, dense and moist.

More?? Let’s skip lemon bars and lemonade, and point you in the direction of a full dozen worthwhile favorites.  Enjoy!

  1. Easy Meyer Lemon Curd – WHO KNEW the box of cornstarch had this idea printed on it?? Friend, Sandy pointed it out. Our lemons aren’t Meyer, but they still work with this
  2. Triple Citrus Cupcakes with Lime Glaze – use Wilton baking cups to make them purdy
  3. Lemon Ricotta Cheesecake – great texture and flavor, what a beauty
  4. This lovely Citrusy Olive Oil Cake with Limoncello Drizzle will also impress, believe me
  5. Vegan, yummy and simple, a dinner of Lemon Lentils makes you feel like a healthy hippie again
  6. Opa! Greek Lemon Orzo Soup – DANG, I do luv this soup
  7. Lemon and Goat Cheese Pasta from a blogger friend, delicious option for a meatless meal
  8. Chicken with Olives and Lemon – upscale, easy, great flavor combo
  9. Sautéed Chard with Garlic and Lemon – a cooking class treat from my experience at the FAB Rancho La Puerta
  10. Tasty vinaigrette for this Wurstsalat (my version, that is) or just about any green salad
  11. My baking screw-up: Tangerine Upside Down Cake SHOULD have been made with lemons
  12. And, of course, my absolute Go-To Lemon Glazed Poundcake. Perfect hostess gift, bake sale item, last minute “you bring the dessert.”

I love making Lemon/poppy seed Pizzelles! I got tired of the anise ones and tweeked the recipe and made them a totally different taste delight. I think freshly grated lemon peel is the secret to their great flavor. Purchased, dried lemon peel just doesn’t do it.

These recipes look intriguing. I’m another odd duck who prefers lemon to chocolate. Liz, you aren’t alone!

Mimi, we California kids weep when we actually spend money on a lemon or lime. Walk outside here, pluck one from your own tree… or a neighbor’s, everybody has a ton.

I’m in Vermont visiting Mom/ home. Bought groceries today. One lemon = 79 cents. Not even a Meyer lemon. Just a normal lemon.

A lovely lemon collection – I want to make everything. I’m one of those odd ducks who prefers lemon to chocolate. Thanks, Patti!

How do you spell Patti? O-V-E-R-A-C-H-I-E-V-E-R!! Not one fabulous recipe, not two, but twelve? Seriously Patti, how is any food blogger without super powers supposed to keep up with you? And all of these recipes sound so divine….I may be in the kitchen all summer now!!!
