Foodie Friday: When Life Gives You Lemons ~ Cook With Them!

You know the saying, "When Life Gives You Lemons.........Make Lemonade," it's one of my favorites. The message is to make the best of every situation. In my view, lemons make almost every recipe a little fresher, brighter and better. Though you'll find a recipe for Apricot Rosemary Lemonade here, there's more.  Think Fried Meyer Lemons, the best Baked Lemon, Feta, and Artichoke Dip, Spring's chicest cocktail and more. So pucker up, scroll down, 
and get cook'n.

HERE: 22 Lovely Lemon Recipes
 & Cooks' Tools

Lemon Chamomile Spring Cocktail
Let's begin with a taste of Spring.  Bright citrus and delicate floral notes are combined with egg whites, yogurt, and lemon curd to create one chic cocktail.

Grilled Swordfish Skewers With Lemon
Garlic Sauce
My pick of the edit! Anything on a skewer is better. Swordfish is thick and hearty, and is just so delicious. A must try when the weather warms up.

Apricot Rosemary Lemonade
This Apricot Rosemary Lemonade is a refreshing  drink that’s made with fresh lemons and an apricot-rosemary compote that’s been strained and added to the lemonade. A little dash of Vodka or Gin makes it perfect!

Lemon Squeezer and Lemon Zester 
Tool Set
A handy set that you will use day after day. It's nicely priced, too!

Lemon Meringue Pie
For some of us, when we think of lemons, this pie comes first to mind. Oh how I love to make meringue. My two tips are always add one more egg to the recipe than called for, and wait until your peaks are formed to add the sugar. 

Easy Garlic, Lemon, and Herb Pasta
The key to this beautiful dish is to add plenty of fresh herbs, garlic, and lemon to your pot — the combo will do most of the work for you.

A Whole Roasted Chicken
The key to this recipe is a compound herb butter slathered between the skin and the meat. And yes there is lots of lemon. Lemon zest is in the butter, and lemon slices are nestled around the chicken. I have actually made this, and it received rave reviews.

Lemon Cream Tart With Candied Lemons
With a simplicity of flavor and texture, this is a classic recipe that is always in good taste.

Thai-Inspired Asparagus Salad with Fried Meyer Lemon
This little salad's flavors come at you head first, hitting you with bursts of chili and jalapeno, sprays of cilantro and lemongrass and blows of lime

Meyer Lemon Table Runner
Set a sunny table inside or out.

Salmon Piccata
According to the recipe author, "Originally from Italy, Piccata is traditionally made with Veal. This may not be ‘the real deal’ or ‘the most authentic’ Piccata recipe due to being cooked with salmon, however, the unmistakeable Piccata flavours in this Salmon version are all right there in the skillet!" Sounds fab to me!

Rockmelon, Lemon and Gin Slushies
A bottle of chilled Hendrick’s, a batch of frozen rockmelon and some syrup is all you need to keep guests happy this Spring and Summer

Lemon Chicken Stew
The perfect one pot meal. Add turmeric to make it an extra healthy one.

 Easy Lemon Cake Recipe
I know, I know. Nothing about that fancy frosting looks easy, in fact I wouldn't even try it. Nothing wrong with adapting it to your personal skills. The cake recipe is actually quite easy. Go for it.

Cauliflower Mashed Potatoes In A Lemon Cup With Smoke Paprika
This recipe gets my vote for the most unique of the roundup. If you haven’t had cauliflower mashed potatoes, they are a great lower carb alternative than regular potatoes. And hands up if you agree that they are the cutest apps ever!

Dreamy Lemon Cheesecake
Made in a water bath, which is something I haven't done before. With a homemade lemon curd, I think it is worth a try.

Lemon Juicer
Speaking from experience, this great gadget works beautifully! It is one of my 
fave kitchen tools.

Lemon Raspberry Prosecco Floats
I just love it when you can drink your dessert.

Baked Lemon, Feta, and Artichoke Dip
An easy and fast appetizer with tons of flavor.

Lemon Cheesecake Mousse
What a pretty make ahead dessert! The base of the mousse is graham crackers, making this recipe an old school comforting classic.

Bitterman's Lemon Flake Salt
"Mr. Shop This" and I enjoy Bitterman's fine Himalayan Sea Salt. This variety sounds delicious. Imagine it on the rim of a Bloody Mary! Lemon flake is hand harvested from the Mediterranean Sea after being channeled through a network of waterways and features massive, pyramid-shaped crystals for a satisfying crunch. 

Crispy Oregano Smashed Potatoes With Feta & Lemon
These just look and sound delicious!
Said to be simple, but mouth wateringly 
delicious and addicting.
