Veal Picatta

This recipe, from My Recipes, is one of our family favorites – served over angel hair pasta. Top 5, easily. And we make it at least once a month, though more frequently with chicken than veal. (Gotta watch that food budget!) I’m pretty sure it’ll make your top 5, too.

Glazed Lemon Shortbread Cookies

I made these fabulous cookies, from Jen at Bakerette, exactly one time. The batch didn’t last 2 days. Until my husband family can exhibit some self-control, I’ll keep holding out on this one. Then again, his birthday is coming up.

This recipe is a simple traditional Greek dish that goes superbly with roasted chicken. It’s a recipe I found at Epicurious (credited there to Aglaia Kremezi). Different and delicious!

Classic Lemonade

This classic lemonade recipe from Melanie Cooks is just the thing to serve on a warm summer day. If your kids sell it from a lemonade stand, it’ll sell out from word of mouth. And they’ll make a fortune.

Sheet Pan Honey Lemon Salmon

This recipe, from Averie Cooks, has nearly 11,000 repins on Pinterest. And salmon is not tilapia. So it’s got those two things going for it right there. And of course, there’s lemon!

Lemon Zucchini Bread

I included this recipe for lemon zucchini bread in a previous post on 10 flavors of zucchini bread. And it did so well, I thought it deserved a repeat. I know I keep making it!

Everyone loves Chinese Orange Chicken, but it’s at every take-out place. So shake it up at home with this great lemon version I found at Thirty Handmade Days (contributed by Sabrina from Dinner, Then Dessert.)

Lemon Blueberry Cream Pie

lemon lover

I am obsessed with this pie! I’ve probably made it five times in as many months. The recipe comes from Nikki at Chef In Training. It’s soooo good, you’ll need a 12-step program to recover. Don’t say you weren’t warned.

Spaghetti with Mascarpone, Meyer Lemon, Spinach, and Hazelnuts

lemon lover

I started this lemon lover round-up post with pasta and I’ll end with another pasta dish. I haven’t tried this recipe yet, but I’m about to. There’s nothing in it I don’t love – including being different. If you’re looking for something new, this is it. And the recipe is in the title!
