Italian Lemon Drop Cookies

These cookies are different than your average cookie. They are kind of spongy, cakey, and very soft. Robb told me the dough tasted more like cake batter than cookie dough. And I agreed with him on that.

Fresh Squeezed Lemonade

Summer is definitely here, and it is HOT. We went swimming in the creek to cool off. It was beautiful, and the only thing that was missing was the fresh-squeezed lemonade.

Easy Pineapple Cheesecake Recipe

I made this cheesecake for the busy moms out there. The moms that don’t have time to mess with stuff, but still want a nice dessert to give them 5 more minutes of face time with their kids after dinner.

Lemon Thumbprints

I went through a nightmare of finding a cookie that I could give her without hanging my head in shame. I had cookie failure after cookie failure until the magical day when I met my first batch of lemon curd.

Carrot Cake with Lemon Ginger Frosting

I discovered not too long ago that people either love or loathe carrot cake, which I find surprising since carrot is one of the few cakes that I actually enjoy. Having said that, I ordered a slice of carrot cake from a bakery once and I learned that day how painful and cruel life can sometimes be because I bit into it and found a raisin.

Lemon Sour Cream Muffins

I hate everything about winter, so I’ll take any warm and sunny day that comes along. I’ll take it, I’ll smile, and I’ll probably purchase some lemons.

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.
