Luscious lemon

06/17/2010

Lemons are wonderful. They smell great and have that beautiful intense sunny color that perks up the world around it. Even if that happens to be the fridge in which it sits. I use lemon quite frequently to add brightness to what ever I am cooking; a stir fry, marinade for some kind of meat or fish, in salad dressing, over steamed veggies. And don’t forget the zest! If a baking recipe calls for lemon juice I will add a bit of the zest. It really carries the lemony flavor. Here again, on a piece of grilled fish the zest is just marvelous.

Dan and I recently had lunch at the home of a friend. For dessert she served plain vanilla ice cream drizzled with limoncello. Just a tiny bit of this lemony liquor over the rich vanilla iced cream gives you a grown up version of a lemon creamsicle. It is a revelation both in taste and simplicity. Try it!

Buon Appetito!
