When we first started this blog we created a master list of recipes we wanted to feature. Many of them we have shared and many of them are still waiting for their time. One of the things on the top of our list was homemade hummus. Kelly, Cliff, and I are huge fans of hummus. HUGE! I had only ever made my own hummus once before and it was just ok. Actually, it was a big disappointment. It is never good when you make something from scratch and then decide that the store bought version is better. Anyway, since we didn’t have a good recipe for hummus it kind of sat on the back burner and we continued with our store bought hummus.
This recipe was inspired by a meal Cliff ordered in Sorrento. I think everybody should go to Italy just for the food alone. There is nothing that compares to it and every single meal inspired us enough to try and recreate it at home. When he ordered the pasta with broccoli I was imagining something more along the lines of the Linguine with Broccoli that we make all the time. But it was totally different! I had never heard of or thought about making broccoli pesto before, but it was so good!
It is pretty crazy that at this time 2 weeks ago we had never made anything with Meyer lemons before. And today we are posting our 4th Meyer lemon recipe in a row. We got some great ideas from the comments of our previous post, so you may be seeing more Meyer lemon recipes soon! When an ingredient is only available for a limited time you really need to take advantage. Not to mention, Meyer lemons are super tasty!!
This week has been all about the meyer lemons for us, and I totally support it. Yesterday Kara asked for meyer lemon recipe suggestions and it looks like we’ve gotten some total winners. Meyer lemon pound cake? Yes please! Isn’t there something similar to that at Starbucks? It’s like a lemony loaf and it’s awesome! And now…what better way to end the work week than with a dessert that’s refreshing, slightly tart, sweet and lemon-licious? That was cheesy. :-/
So, as Kelly said yesterday we finally scored some Meyer lemons. Finally! It only took us about 2 years of trying. So far, we have made 3 recipes with the Meyer lemons and we have 3 lemons left. The Meyer lemons have not disappointed so far. Any ideas what we should do with the last 3 lemons?
