As you probably know, if you asked me what my favorite flavor was, I would say bacon. (Yes, I consider bacon a flavor.) But if you asked the Southern husband, I am betting that lemon would be in his top three, if not Number One altogether. So every now and then I figure out a lemony treat to make for him, and in this case it turned out to be these cute little lemon cheesecake bites. Lemon cheesecake, lemon topping, lemon lemon everywhere. He was one happy camper! So if you have a lemon-lover in your life too, let’s make them!
I know, you are probably thinking does the world really need another recipe for avocado toast? Well, since avocados and toast are two of my very favorites, I wasn’t going to sit back and let the avocado toast world pass me by, but I wanted to add something special to the mix, and so I present to you my current breakfast crush: lemon avocado toast with poached egg. Creamy, dreamy, healthy, easy breakfast (or lunch!) deliciousness. Let’s make it!
We all know how I feel about bacon, and my love for bacon of course extends into all kinds of BLT sandwich love, but with this latest recipe for lobster BLT sandwiches with brie cheese, I think I may have found the love of my life, BLT-wise. In this sandwich, B stands for both bacon and Brie, and L stands for both lettuce and lobster. And LOVE, because that is how I felt about every creamy, crunchy bite! Ready for the BLT sandwich of your dreams? Let’s make it!
Scallops are the Southern husband’s favorite, and lemon is the Southern husband’s favorite. Butter and cheese are two of my favorites, so I knew if I put all of these things together in one light and lovely recipe for scallops in lemon butter sauce, I pretty much couldn’t go wrong. And bonus points – this recipe takes about 15 minutes tops from walking into your kitchen to sitting down at your table (I love it when that happens!). Ready for dinner party deliciousness that is quick enough for a Monday school night? Let’s make it!
Say hello to one of my very favorite salads, for so many reasons. It’s full of cheery, colorful fresh veggies, it features nutty, chewy barley, and it’s got tender shredded chicken to give it some healthy protein. It’s tossed with a zingy lemon dill dressing. And you can have it warm or (if it is one billion degrees outside the way it is right this second as I am writing), it’s delectable at room temperature.

So, we all know what Sunday is, right? Mother’s Day!! The day that moms across the land get to kick back and not cook dinner OR clean up the kitchen. (Full disclosure: this mom never cleans up the kitchen, because that is one of the Southern husband’s specialties. You can’t have him, he’s MINE.) So if you are still pondering what to make your mama on Sunday, may I recommend this easy peasy recipe for lemon artichoke shrimp scampi? Along with being DE-licious, it also cooks up in a snap in a foil packet on the grill, meaning extremely little clean-up action for anyone involved.
So, ready for some lemon artichoke shrimp deliciousness? Let’s make it!
