  1. Our new house has a Meyer Lemon tree and I’m quite the devoted fan. Thanks for the recipes. My mother made a lemon bundt cake that I crave every summer, so I am especially interested in that lemon lava cake.

  6. I have added many of these recipes to Pinterest. Thanks! Lemon is one of my favourite ingredients when cooking. It was in my pasta dish last night and is in the baking I am doing tomorrow. One of my super-speedy standby vegetarian meals for me (when I am cooking meat for the others) is pasta with a sauce made from hummus and lemon zest and juice.
