  11. We’re Greek so we use lemons for everything including our elbows. Don’t ask! Our Avgolemono Soup is one of our very favorites. Love the presentation, ingenious as always.

  12. What is it about this time of year that makes lemon and citrus so appealing…maybe months of gray. Loved your post. Beautiful, beautiful photos and inspiring drink ideas!

  13. I love the tale in photos….and the lemon souffle rocks (I’m partial to things baked or done in lemon shells!). Superb, yellow and bright

  14. I have to say that lemons are some of my favorite things too..from my daily slice in my water at lunch to the occational lemoncello martini ;) to my fresh made lemon curd in little phillo shells topped with a blueberry or raspberry..just makes life a little yummy! I think we are in need of a big glass of lemonade…thanks for the reminder!! L U
