Yesterday morning as The Husband and I were taking the dog for a quick walk around the block he mentioned that our lemon tree was chock full of lemons and they were ripe NOW. My first reaction was excitement because yeah, we (and I mean The Husband) was able to bring the tree back from the brink and secondly lemon desserts because that’s just how my mind operates.
As images of lemon bars, lemon bread, lemon cookies and more swam through my head I got giddy and then because hello pregnancy I got tired just thinking about all that extra work after a full day of real work.
Lucky for me it’s the weekend starting tomorrow and I can’t wait to get my baking back on.
As fate would have it this morning Facebook greeted me with a lemon bread recipe so on the “To Make List”, are some of these tasty looking treats from Averie Cooks.
The Best Lemon Loaf This loaf is made even better since the recipe says you can do it all in one bowl with no mixer; my favorite kind of baking.
Soft and Chewy Lemon Cookies Lemon are fruits so I can at least try and trick myself into thinking that they’re good for me.
The Best Lemon Bars My Mom is a huge fan of lemon bars and a recipe that promises to be both sweet and citrus-y would definitely have her approval.
Averie I can’t wait to roll up my sleeves and get to baking; you’re recipes look so enticing!
I know what I’m up to this weekend; anyone else have any great lemon recipes they’d like to share?
