Pancakes are such a gift to breakfast time. I love pancakes so much I try to dedicate Sunday breakfast to pancakes each week. We love breakfast to be light. Anything that will sit on you like a brick is not an option. I worked on this recipe to create our fluffiest pancakes ever and added our favorite flavors.

How many times must I profess my love for lemon? Oh, okay. You got it already. In case there is any doubt, check out my selection of lemon dishes here on our website or our Lemon Love Pinterest board with over 800 pins.
When I was planning for the Ladies Brunch that we hosted a few weeks back as soon as a pancake bar came to mind I was thinking about creating a lemon syrup. Something bright and refreshing that would be perfect on pancakes, cakes, desserts and of course (my criteria) scrumptious on a spoon. Well, this perfect Homemade Creamy Lemon Syrup is all that and more.

It probably comes as no surprise to hear me admit that I have a bit of a lemon 'thing'. If you have seen our selection of lemon dishes here on our website or our Lemon Love Pinterest board with over 800 pins you may have had a clue. So, when I tell you that my 2 favorite cocktails of all time are both custom creations by Chad and both are lemon cocktails I am sure you won't be shocked.

Spring has sprung and I am craving light and fresh flavors. Of course a salad was a great way to go. But, this isn't just any salad. The lemon-pepper chicken is so flavorful it will take you by surprise and the salad has a special ingredient that really makes it pop! Can you guess what it is???
Crisp, crunchy and flavorful. I would tell you I am going to have this for lunch again... However the chicken is apparently so good that it magically disappeared (I am pretty sure I have a suspect).
Hurry and make it while no one is looking!

I am sure you may already know, but it is a rare occasion when I would turn away lemon. I love it in anything and everything. Pastas, breakfasts, desserts, cocktails, salads, ice pops, and my favorite marinated chicken. When I am not eating lemon, I am dreaming about it... my Lemon Love Pinterest board is loaded with inspiration for future recipes!

Light and refreshing, I love the combination of citrus flavors in a cocktail. Especially in January. Every thing and nearly every one is focused on being, feeling and looking healthy. Nothing feels quite as light as citrus.

Fall and comfort food seem to go hand in hand. This week has been the perfect time to break out all my favorite comfort dishes and desserts. Lemon and cheese are 2 of my three comfort sweets, chocolate being the third. Not to be a snob, but chocolate and lemon... Not my thing.

Whew! It's hot out there! In Phoenix, we are breaking records once again. We are having a record shattering heat wave. For the last 8 days we have seen high temps over 110° and have not dipped below 90° (for a low). Are you sure this isn't death valley? Poor Sammy the squirrel is MIA. I am hoping he hitched a ride north for the worst of summer.
This is the perfect time to hibernate a little (hey bears do it during the winter) and pull out some more cold dishes. I find that lemon and cucumbers are extremely cooling and refreshing so I created this fabulous salad using them both. It is unbelievable!

If you are looking for a tasty way to beat the summer heat, the Raspberry Lemonade Yogurt Ice Pop is just the perfect treat. Chad and I have a deep love and appreciation for all things lemon. Whether its sweet treats, savory eats, household remedies or beauty treatments we are always happy to use lemon. We always have a fruit basket full of lemons and a good portion of the year we are fortunate enough to have a tree full of lemons.
As I was preparing these fabulously flavorful frozen treats, all I could think about was biting into one. Savoring the layers of tart lemon juice and lemon zest and contrasting sweet raspberries perfectly combined with smooth and creamy protein packed yogurt. I very carefully constructed each popsicle. Took my time, I mean look at those raspberries, all with the end game in mind. These were mine! Chad doesn't care for popsicles that much and Munchkins palette isn't quite developed enough to really enjoy lemon yet. This creation was all for me.

Everyone is looking for cold refreshing drinks with temperatures sizzling all over the country. What better to cool you down than a cold summery cocktail? Raspberries and lemon make the most delectable lemonade and this cocktail is a scrumptious adult version.
As a surprise to follow up my new found love of Cherry Limeade Cocktails, Chad surprised with me with a bottle of Raspberry Pucker. The first thing out of my mouth was Raspberry Lemonade Cocktail! So, off he went to the mixology lab to create this sensational drink for you!
Sweet grenadine mixes with the tart Raspberry Pucker and lemon juice to create an incredibly delightful cocktail. Watch this one ladies, it goes down so smooth and its so fabulous you will be making more!

Welcome to TSRI's Summer Grilling Celebration! I love sweet cocktails in the summer. My favorites are of course drinks that are inspired by my favorite desserts. It is no surprise (I am sure) that I love lemon cream pie. I say it is no surprise because I have a bit of a lemon love affair going on. I also have a bit of a cake love affair, but that is a story for another day.
This Lemon Cream Pie Martini is truly like the dessert in a cocktail. It is lemony, smooth, and has the fantastic creaminess that the Whipped vodka provides. The rim is covered in graham cracker for even more flavor.

We are going to be sharing some of our favorite grilling and summer treats in the coming weeks.

Happy Friday!! I can't believe it is Friday already, but I am excited for the weekend. We have had a bit of a crazy week. Crazy good! Work is busy and Munchkin is growing so fast. I can't believe she is 2 1/2 already, I still want to cuddle her like a newborn.
Sometimes when we get caught in the 'thick' of the chaos that is life, you get sent a reminder of how blessed you are. I got that 'memo' the other day and am so grateful for that moment.
