If you love lemon like I do, you've probably been dissapointed with lemon desserts before. You know the ones, that look great, but don't actually taste like lemons, just kind of smell like them. These lemon slice cookies are the opposite of those disappointments. These will blow you away with their lemon awesomeness.

These zucchini cookies with a lemon glaze are absolutely delicious. Not too sweet, with just the right bright citrus zing from the glaze drizzled on top. These were my favorite goodies from the Ultimate Lemonade Stand.

Welcome to this month's Taste Creations Blog Hop! The theme ingredient this month is coffee. I decided to develop a recipe for cappuccino blondies based on my favorite snickerdoodle blondies recipe.

I've seen homemade sprinkles before, but the only ones I've seen have been made with royal icing, piped into lines, and then broken into smaller pieces. It's cute, but not quite what I wanted to create for my homemade sprinkle experiment. I wanted something more regular, and also with a more distinct flavor. It also sounded rather tedious to make the royal icing version.

Our whole family loves making fresh lemonade with lemons from our backyard, but we usually just make basic, plain lemonade. For the Ultimate Lemonade Stand, I wanted to make some fresh berry syrups that our friends could add to the plain lemonade.

Quick breads are easy to make (no yeast! no fuss!) and so delicious, and one of my very favorites is zucchini bread. I'm not a big fan of zucchini generally, but when you grate it and bake it in a sweet quick bread, it's absolutely magical.
You pretty much can't go wrong with zucchini bread of any variety, but I decided to jazz up my favorite recipe by adding a crumb topping. Spoiler alert: it was a great idea.

Today, I'm going to share one of my favorite incredibly fast and easy and delicious and filling and healthy make-ahead meals: Quinoa Beef Burrito Bowl.
The beef is originally made with a crock pot, but it makes spectacular leftovers (and I'm picky about leftovers), so it's perfect for incredibly fast, easy, healthy lunches for days. And it's so good that I don't get tired of eating it days in a row.

The weather is warming up, but fresh lemon season is winding down. Time to juice hundreds of lemons and freeze my bounty for those hot summer days. Lemonade always tastes better on a hot day. And now that I've figured out how to make amazing frozen lemonade, our summers will be even more amazing.

Spring is here, flowers are blooming, bees are buzzing... and I made a cocktail recipe inspired by the sights and scents of springtime to welcome the season.
