Pucker Up!

We made it to the end of the work week - I think we deserve a treat for all our hard work this week!

And have I got some awesome treats for you!

For some reason I have been fixated with lemons of late.  It started at Easter when my SIL made a delicious Lemon Meringue Pie for dessert.  I only had 1 piece but for some reason it whet my appetite for more Lemon.

On Tuesday one of the doctors I work for took me out for lunch as a thank you for all my hard work.  This lunch was supposed to happen at Christmas time, but we just were never able to schedule it.  Anyway we went to a French Bistro, and I had a lovely Broccoli Quiche - which was so good, but the highlight of the meal was the Lemon Torte we had for dessert.  The crust was made from Almonds, and the filling was definitely not from a box.  It was the most incredible lemon experience of my life - seriously - it was out of this world amazing.

I really hope you like Lemon - cause you are going to get a lot of it in the next few minutes.  Nothing says spring and summer like Lemon - both the color and taste.

So my gift to you for your long week is these incredible recipes.  Of course you have to do the work to enjoy my gift - but I'm sure if you are a lemon lover, you will be more than anxious to try these out...  Try one, or try them all - the choice it yours - so Enjoy!

My thanks to all the wonderful creators of these recipes...
