When Life Gives You Lemons

What do you do when life gives you lemons?  Apparently a lot of you are just like me! …..you make dessert!!

I just realized that my Lemon Curd Tart marked my 200th post!

Imagine my surprise when looking back at some of my most viewed posts it seems lemons are a favorite.

Here a few of my readers favorite lemon recipes!

  1. That strawberry lemon meringue/mousse is so lovely! I especially loved your post about the difference between your two daughters. I’m an older sister and we are also add different add night and day! So sweet.

  2. I don’t know why I am always surprised when lemon recipes are as popular (if not more popular) than chocolate recipes! Personally, I love lemon! 🙂 I agree that lemon and lavender are made for each other! In a tea cup or in a bar! Your lemon bars and lemon mousse are pinned to make soon!

  3. Lemon desserts are so refreshing and one of the few desserts that I enjoy year round. This is a fantastic list of yummy recipes. Pinning 🙂
