I wish I had a grove of citrus trees in my backyard. Where I could look down over my deck in the morning, legs dangling on the railing, sipping my coffee and smell those wonderfully fresh citrus smells. Besides smelling like angel’s breath (yes I imagine that angels have citrus breath, totally normal), they just look like happiness. Greens, yellows and orange colors bursting from beneath the leaves.

Living where I do, it’s a pipe dream, but it’s a good dream. Until then I’ll grow my tomato and herb garden and be content scooping up as much citrus as I can while they’re in season.

Herb Roasted Leg of Lamb

Herb Roasted Leg of Lamb.

I’m a fan of lamb. I’m not sure why it’s not more wildly popular than it is because it’s sensationally succulent. It also happens to be a staple at my table on Easter. Which ehem, is right around the corner. No need to panic. We’re going to be sharing all kinds of easy and elegant options to help you create an effortless Easter table.

Starting with this boneless herb roasted leg of lamb. It’s as simple as applying a rub and putting it into the oven until it reaches your desired level of done ness. For me, that’s rare (135 degrees) or medium (145 degrees). Use a digital thermometer to monitor internal temps.

Limoncello Cookies.

I’m practically giddy that it’s Daylight Savings this weekend. We’re springing forward y’all. I don’t know about you, but I’m beyond ready for longer days. Longer days mean spring and summer are right around the corner along with warmer weather. I’m not a cold weather person. Winter is not my jam. I like boots and a roaring fire but otherwise I could skip the entire thing and be okay with it. I’ve considered moving even further South every winter. Truth. These Limoncello cookies are like spring and summer all balled up into a few glorious bites.

Pink Macarons

Pink Macarons.

It’s the month of all things pink, red and everything heart shaped. You know the holiday. They’ve had the shelves stocked with chocolates and goofy little stuffed animals since Christmas Eve reminding us it’s coming. I’ve never been a jewelry and flowers girl but food, yes I’m all in. Especially when it’s carbs or dessert. Pretty pink dainty French cookies, most definitely fall into the yes category for me. Better known as macarons. It’s a sweet meringue-based confection made using: egg whites, powdered sugar, granulated sugar, almond flour, and food coloring. They’re delicious and you can fill them with whatever your heart desires.
