The lemon (Citrus limon) is a species of small evergreen trees in the flowering plant family Rutaceae, native to Asia, primarily Northeast India (Assam), Northern Myanmar or China.The tree's ellipsoidal yellow fruit is used for culinary and non-culinary purposes throughout the world, primarily for its juice, which has both culinary and cleaning uses. The pulp and rind are also used in cooking and baking. The juice of the lemon is about 5% to 6% citric acid, with a pH of around 2.2, giving it a sour taste. The distinctive sour taste of lemon juice makes it a key ingredient in drinks and foods such as lemonade and lemon meringue pie.

I came across a recipe in the vegetarian times for this recipe. www.vegetariantimes.com/recipes/strawberry-gazpacho-with-lime-cilantro-cream/ .
As always I've adapted the recipe. I'm uncertain that the olive oil in the original recipe is required, so I'm omitting totally.
I've not made much...
I love the contrast between the crunchy golden breadcrumbs, soft egg and the tangy sauce laced with capers.
Make no mistake, this simple dish can be a bit tricky to prepare. You need to use really fresh eggs so that they poach into satisfying plump shapes. You need to be ultra gentle when...

Arancini derives from the Sicilian plural diminutive of aranciu ('orange'), from their shape and colour which, after cooking, is reminiscent of an orange.

I came across the recipe on The Guardian food website without saffron. Looking at the recipe whilst it was cooking, I felt the dish would benefit from the warming colour and fragrance of saffron and added it. I was correct.

I prefer a slightly runny risotto, i.e. where it will spread out slightly after you place it on a plate or in a shallow bowl, so that's what this recipe will give you. If you prefer tight or runny risotto, adjust liquid as needed.

Lemon-Ricotta Pound Cake

For the cake:
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup ricotta cheese at room temperature
3 eggs at room temperature
3 tsp lemon zest from 3 lemons
3 TB freshly squeezed lemon juice from 1 lemon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
Preserved lemon, saffron and olives bring Middle Eastern flavours to this easy chicken tray bake and the potatoes soak up the delicious juices from the chicken. The lemon curd glaze is optional but it does provide an unusual sweet citrus taste to the chicken. I served this dish with a crisp...
I first made this a few months ago but found the taste not quite to my liking, my lemons are sweet and frankly diluting the juice by the volume suggested in the original recipe (Lemon jelly, classic and strong version! Vegan and gluten free!) left the lemon taste quite vague, so I thought I'd...
I love to make these because they're so zesty and flavorful and still not as rich as regular cupcakes.
200 g self raising flour
2 large eggs
75 g golden caster sugar
50 ml sunflower oil
150 ml low fat natural yoghurt
2 tbsp skimmed milk
1 tsp of bicarbonate of soda
This is a 1 bowl, 1 sheet pan, 1 cutting board and a sauce pan for rice or couscous to soak up all the juices (or you could use a rustic bread).
Do ahead: You could make up the pan the night before or in the morning, cover with foil, refrigerate, and then pop in the oven when you get home...
You could substitute an alternative firm fleshed fish, such as cod here. If you haven’t ever made Greek avgolemono sauce then you really should! Its much easier to make than you might think and all that is needed is egg, lemon and some stock. This refreshing bright and creamy sauce is delicious...
