Ok so it’s been crazy….and I mean crazy! My father died December 18, 2016 and well let’s just say there is lots of legal stuffs to do, cops and more. Shaking my head….good thing dad was like me and I have enough coffee to hopefully get thru this.

So it’s like the old saying when life gives you lemon’s you make….Baked goodies! It’s too cold right now here in North Carolina to make lemonade. So I made 2 loaves of lemon blueberry strudel bread for my oh so lovely neighbors. I guess it shocked them that I knew how to bake, well that is to say the least of all the recent shocks around here. So today is cold and too bad outside so to try something new I whipped up a lemon cranberry pound cake.

I got the recipe off of pinterest my oh favorite addictive site on the web. I saw the recipe, had to make the recipe and now awaiting to see if I conquered said recipe. Lucky lucky me I’ve had more pinterest wins than fails. One must take inconsideration before baking crazy exotic gourmet goodies the comfortablity one has in the kitchen. ┬áMe the kitchen is the heart and soul of a home.

I will post some different recipes using lemon. Not the one’s that everyone knows, ya know lemon meringue and curd and lemon poppy. Lemon’s are cheap, easy to work with and delightfully compliment many different types of other fruits. Especially berries.

So without further going and witnessing for the delightful lemon…I present new recipes to try!
