35+ Lemon Recipes and Feeling The Love

A collection of over 35 incredible lemon-themed recipes from drinks to desserts and everything in between.
35 Lemon Recipes - The Lemon BowlWhen I started The Lemon Bowl over 3 years ago, I figured it would be a fun way to share my recipes with close girlfriends, a few family members and maybe my mom. Never in my wildest dreams did I imagine that I would be joining a tight-knit community of talented, creative and inspiring food bloggers. The same people whose blogs I’ve been reading for years and recipes I’ve been sharing on Twitter are now some of my closest friends and I couldn’t be happier.

Yesterday morning, I woke up to check my Twitter feed as usual only to discover that all of these amazing women whom I’ve looked up to for years, all got together to surprise me with a Lemon-Themed Virtual Baby Shower. To say that I was blown away is a complete understatement.

lizs-baby-showerAs it turns out, my dear friends Rachel of Rachel Cooks, Sheila of Eat2Gather and Kristen of Dine & Dish rallied the troops to coordinate this incredible day of celebration in honor of my little lemon baby. Everyone was asked to create lemon-inspired recipes in honor of my favorite ingredient. From drinks to salads to desserts and everything in between, these ladies went to town! Every post made me cry – not only because I’m 9 months pregnant and their kind words were too sweet but because I was sad we weren’t all eating these dishes in person!!

To those of you who took the time, energy and love to create these beautiful recipes: thank you. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I am truly blessed to have gotten to know all of you and grateful to have met many of you in person. You all inspire me every single day and I am so lucky to be in your club.

For everyone else, please enjoy over 35 lemon recipes created by these amazing women! Be sure to visit their websites and tell them Liz sent you. You won’t be disappointed.

Your fork is waiting.
