Good Morning everybody!
Alright my fellow Vancourverites, let’s just ignore the fact that it is the most gloomy Monday of all time here in Vancouver today, and try to focus on the positive! Contrary to the fact that it is pouring down rain and utterly miserable outside today, for the most part I think we have to admit that Spring has definitely arrived here in Vancouver! I mean let’s face it, our trees have leaves on them, our cherry blossom trees have been blooming like mad, grass is getting green, and it’s gotten to the point where you can actually step outside and be greeted by that amazingly fresh, floral scent that I can only describe as the amazing scent of Spring. All things considered it has been wonderful so far this Spring, so I will try my best to ignore this very rainy and depressing day… and I will hope that the weather forecast for the remainder of the week brightens up to include at least a little sunshine! Pleassseeeeeeeeee!!!
Anyways, with summer just around the corner (sort of) I seem to have one thing, and one thing only on my mind – baking with lemons! Ahhh yes – it is that time of year when the sun comes out, the weather starts to get warmer and I start to experience intense cravings for the sweet and tangy delights of all things lemon infused! There is just something so fresh and crisp about lemon desserts that make for a perfect finish to those simple and light spring / summer meals, wouldn’t you agree?
