Lemon Recipes to Brighten Your Day


So here’s the real reason I needed to share all my favorite lemon recipes: IT WILL NOT STOP RAINING. 

I love a good rainy day, y’all. Really. Rainy days are a great excuse to wear stretchy pants and socks (aside from every other day I mean; on rainy days this is probably appropriate attire) and bake bread from scratch. Binge on Netflix. Make soup. 

Rainy days are fabulous every now and then. 

But 2019 in North Carolina has been like monsoon season. Everything is muddy, my dogs are losing their ish and think the living room is their new wrestling ring, and my body is crying out for some vitamin D. I need sunshine, you guys. So we are gonna fake it until we make it. 

These are my very favorite lemon recipes, and the color + flavors have been enough to get me through. They are all simple, and there’s definitely something for everyone. Cakes? ✅15 minute dinner recipe? ✅A tart that looks like the sun and has a saltine cracker crust? Yup? ✅
