Lemon Raspberry Meringues

My grandma always said if she was God, she would make raspberries the size of her palm. I kind of like them the way they are; I love that little bite-size burst of flavor.

Lemon Thyme Shortbread

This lemon shortbread is perfect for Mothers Day. I added thyme to it because, well, I love thyme. And putting an herb in a cookie is interesting. And moms love that kind of stuff.

Lemon Cream Sodas and a Big Announcement!

I knew in that moment I would need to learn to make homemade cream sodas. And learn, I did.

Cherries Jubilee Cookies

Robb loves Cherries Jubilee. He always wants me to make it, but that whole en flambe thing makes me squeamish. Since I wasn’t going to be earning any amazing-wife points, I figured I would go for pretty-good-wife and turn his Cherries Jubilee into cookies.

Lemon Cookie Truffles

Most of the cookie truffle recipes I’ve seen call for cream cheese. I decided to rebel, to stick it to the man, and use frosting instead. Yep, I’m a rebel. I’ll be going out for a tattoo any minute now.

Lemon Sugar Cookies

I bought myself a new maxi dress, so I guess I’m ready for summer. Why does lemon seem so summery? Some fruits can feel at home in any season, but plain old lemon is a summer as it gets.

Bizcochitos for Cinco de Mayo

I don’t care if they’re authentic or not. They’re at least kind-of Mexican, and my family is going to be eating them for Cinco de Mayo. Maybe that’s all we need to know.

Strawberry Lemonade Cookies

I’ve been noticing lately how many of my stories begin with the phrase, “So I went to Costco….” So, I went to Costco and came home with a giant box of strawberries. Gorgeous, sweet, juicy strawberries. I wanted nothing more than to bake with them.

Lemon Ricotta Cookies

You’d think having a cookie blog would be enough, right? I bake cookies, desserts, and snacks every week. The kids eat them like they’re going out of style. And still the doctor says things like, “No restrictions on his diet, let him eat whatever he wants.” I hope what he wants is Lemon Ricotta Cookies. Because that’s what I have.

Lemon Pancakes with Lemon Syrup

Pancakes are such a fantastic dinner choice. There’s no chicken or bacon or cheese to make the dog crazy, and the kids love having pancakes. The adults are mostly focused on the lemon syrup.

Six Great Lunchbox Cookies

Pin ItI’m SO ready for school to start.  And I’m SO not ready for school to start.  The homework struggles… the carpooling… the getting up early to cook a hot breakfast.  Ugh.  Maybe I’ll go back to bed, while I can. In the meantime, I’m leaving you with some of my favorite school lunch cookies. [Read On]

Lemon Blackberry Cookies

Pin ItMy day was going so well.  I had a great morning of blogging, the kids did their chores, and I was in pretty good spirits.  Then I got an unexpected phone call that went something like this: Robb: Can you pack a bag for me?  I’m going to Boise. Me: Are you serious? Robb: [Read On]

Lemonade Pound Cake

Pin ItA moist lemonade pound cake, with lemonade soaking syrup and pink frosting. Source: Ummm… about that.  I found this on an apron site.  Weird but true. When I was a poor college student, I used to make this simple dessert called Lemonade Pie.  It’s just vanilla ice cream, mixed with frozen lemonade concentrate, poured [Read On]

Easter Recipe Round-Up

Pin ItBy Easter, I am so ready to be outside.  It has a tendency to be very cold and gloomy here in the winter, and I’m just one of those people that craves sunlight.  Of course, it’s not unusual for us to have snow for Easter, but this week has been very sunny, so I [Read On]

Lemon Crinkles

It’s spring, which for us means it’s time to plant… at my mother-in-law’s house. My husband had a busy Saturday planned, but scrapped it all to spend the day working in his mother’s yard, spreading mulch and planting the large garden she had recently purchased. Time is of the essence with plants, you know. He called to request my help. I told him I would be right over, which was kind of a lie. I baked cookies first.
