Lemon Lemon Loaf
Hi, My name is Valerie and I'm hopelessly addicted to lemons, limes and all their nefarious dessert incarnations. I don't plan on seeking any help, rather I've decided to take the opposite route and welcome my obsession with open arms (and lips.)
For as much as I enjoy finding excuses to add rum to just about anything, I had to stick to the bourbon on this one. And because of the inclusion of booze, I'm hoping to avoid any potential eye-rolling at yet another chocolate chip cookie recipe...making this the second in September.
Lemon Lime Bars
in a lemon,
in the sweet-smelling house of the rind,
the proportions, arcane and acerb. " ( Pablo Neruda)
Because I'm in love with the writings of Pablo Neruda and all things citrus, I may be a bit biased when I say that his appreciation of the lemon is nothing short of miraculous brilliance.
Salted Caramel Pecan Shortbread
This week's Tuesdays with Dorie recipe was hosted by the lovely Jasmine, of Jasmine Cuisine. She chose peanut butter crisscrosses. Because I'm a peanut butter addict, I had already made that particular recipe several times. And due my constant need to try various incarnations of peanut butter, I decided to bake/devour these peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chip cookies instead.
