when life hands you lemons, make lemonade.

but when you've had your fill of lemonade & lemon bars, what do you make next? my mom's lemon tree is producing like crazy this winter! (which is great for us because ours froze last winter.) we actually have more lemons than we know what to do with! any suggestions? anyone want some freshly picked lemons?

There is a fun idea over at bricolageandbutter.blogspot.com you should have a look.

Here's an idea for your over-abundance of lemons. Did you hear about "Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation." Alex died at an early age of childhood cancer. People across the US set-up lemonade stands to raise money in her name for cancer research. Here's the website for more info: http://www.alexslemonade.org/

Yummy lemons! I may need to be making some lemon bars after reading your post! How fun to have your own lemon tree no less!

Have you ever tried Lemon Scones? They are really good. (I have the recipe posted here: http://musings-of-a-mother.blogspot.com/2007/06/lemon-scones.html).

Oh how fun! I love lemonade and lemon bars. I would do a search on cooking.com with "lemon" and see what you come up with.

Tonight I made a pie crust for banana cream pie, but your post is really making me crave lemon meringue. Email me if you want the recipe.

Mmmm, my salivary glands are going crazy.

we juice our lemons and freeze the juice in ice cube trays. then we can enjoy fresh lemonade year round!

also good is lemon chicken. i am sure there are tons of recipes out there.

I SO want some of those lemons!!! I was going to make some lemon ice cream tonight with a couple of lemons I have on hand. You start by making a yummy lemon curd and adding cream to it. My mouth is watering just thinking about it.

gab said...

I want. Yes, make lemon curd and doll it up in little gift jars. That would be my all-time favorite Christmas gift!

Oh, those look so good. I would love having fresh lemons. I like the freezing and lemon curd ideas that have already been mentioned.

mama jo said...

if it was left up to me...i would leave them in the bowl....of course, that's why i gave them to you...

Idea #1: Throw them in a box & send them to ME! I always have a huge bag of lemons from costco in my fridge! Citrus is my favorite cooking ingredient!

2) Lemon vinaigrette

3) This:

Kelly, I like to make fresh lemonade and then put in a few sprigs of fresh rosemary to give it a little zest. It looks pretty too!
