I have made this too many times to count because it is so popular and so easy too. In fact I always make double and bake 2 tins at once!

175g golden caster sugar
Rind of 1 lemon
2lbs cooking apples (Bramleys), peeled, cored and cut into chunks

This is the most easy, delicious and refreshing summer drink.
My mother used to make this for us when we were children. She had a large table top liquidiser.
As I only have a stick blender at the moment, on this occasion I have just made enough for one glass, using just one lemon.
Serves 2, preparation time 10 minutes, cooking time 20 minutes
180 g. rice for risotti
a spoon of chopped rosemary leaves
half lemon (we will use both peel and juice)
1 shallot (or onion)
2 spoons of extra virgin oil (EVOO)
salt to taste
a spoon of grated parmesan

This one took me a long time to figure out, so don't be surprised if it takes me a long time to explain. You've probably already guessed that the Lem in Lem Brulee Cupcakes means lemon. That was the easy part. Getting a crème brulee in cupcake form? That was the tricky part.
Search the internet...
OK, this recipe has me intrigued. I haven't come across anything like it before. It uses the entire lemon, rind, pith and flesh, covered in sugar overnight in a fridge, then lots of eggs (always useful in this household) and pie crust which I am going to switch to sweet shortcrust pastry...

OK - not my recipe (from the Minimalist baker) but one I am very definitely going to make. I'll start the soaking process tonight with the cashew nuts (hopefully nothing will freeze, we have a cold spell at the moment...). Then I will report back. Edit see lower for revised recipe.
For the current recipe challenge I thought I would get a head start and submit a traditional lemon recipe... This one is my Grannie's recipe and I will write up the recipe as well as put up her handwritten copy of it. I expect there are many identical versions online, but I have always known...
I swear I'm not trying to be cheeky here, but I couldn't resist. @morning glory asked about using preserved lemons in the latest cooking challenge, and was told that they weren't allowed. But, here, my ingredient is fresh lemons...to make preserved lemons. ;) I started these a few weeks ago, and...
Squeeze the juice of four lemons
Freshly crushed black peppercorns
Clear runny honey (‘a good dollop’)
Wholegrain mustard (a large teaspoon)
Crushed garlic (‘a few cloves’)
Nigel Slater recommended using boned thighs - maybe 10 or a dozen of them
To go with my Dairy Free, Gluten Free, Lemon Polenta Cake, I have decided to add a Lemon Semolina Cake to the current challenge. I have obviously made it dairy free so that I can eat it!
I've adapted the recipe from this site...

Given that life is so darn hot here at the moment, I'm not fancying anything hot or heavy. last night it was still 28C at 11pm in the house and is too warm to sleep for sure. so whilst looking for a rhubarb recipe or two, to use up the remaining 250g of rhubarb I have, I've adapted this...
It kind of goes without saying that I have no idea whether this salad will work or not, nor what it would taste like, being both vegetarian and allergic to dairy, but I stumbled across it whilst looking for salad ideas and thought that it might be interesting for the current ingredient recipes...
I came across this dairy recipe for lemon and ginger ice cream (http://www.annabel-langbein.com/recipes/lemon-and-ginger-ice-cream/432/) whilst looking for a ginger recipe for the cookingbites recipe challenge.
I liked the simple list of ingredients, the lack of ice-cream maker needed and the...
This can be made in one-pot or the rice cooker. I love how the spinach, onion and chicken fat perk up the boring rice.

2 tblsp EVOO
2 tblsp lemon juice
2 tsp lemon zest
salt and pepper
1/2 white onion, diced
1 tblsp garlic
1 tsp red chili flakes
1 1/2 cup long...
When I think of melon recipes the first things that comes to mind are drinks and smoothies. That said, I wanted to find something a little different and was happy to find this creamy salad.
2 tablespoons lemon juice
3 Tablespoons Olive oil
1 teaspoon honey
