Pinterest is such a great resource for those times when you move to a new house and have a pomegranate tree in the backyard (which happened to me three years ago) or go to a playdate and come home with 30 fresh picked lemons (which happened to me last week). What ARE you going to do with the bounty? The kids and I had a fun time picking out a few new lemon recipes to try last week.
Ever since we had lemon curd at a tea room this spring, E has been wanting to make our own. So we used this easy homemade lemon curd recipe at Shugary Sweets. We did have to stir a little longer than the recipe called for, but E was a good sport about it.
And these lemon crinkle cookies from Lauren’s Latest were yummy, too!
S and I had a lot of fun making this Lemon Blueberry Cream Pie from A Family Feast. It was her first homemade pie!
