Lemon & Lemon Bars

by Kitchen Butterflyon April 24, 2013
Do you sense it as well? This grasping at straws. The Meyers are leaving me be. And I sit here, moaning the end of a season, a friendship….a love affair even, …..with Meyers, my Meyers. The strawberries are no better. They’ve turned an insipid colour that I won’t dignify by calling red. For these bear […]

Meyer Lemon Brown Butter

by Kitchen Butterflyon April 22, 2013
There’s only one thing better than home-made butter and that one thing would be beurre noisette. Otherwise known as brown butter. When it becomes beurre noisette et citron, brown butter with lemon, then you know you’re on to a good thing.

Meyer Lemon Russian Rose Loaf

by Kitchen Butterflyon April 8, 2013
Or Meyer Lemon Cinnamon roll, inside-out. Because that’s essentially what it is, a cinnamon roll that wears its fragrant sugar crystals on it sleeve, and chest.

Grilled Meyer Lemon Citrus Salsa

by Kitchen Butterflyon March 27, 2013
Oh the Meyer Lemon. One fruit but a many-splendid one. Full of tastes from bitter to sweet and floral. This recipe plays on the lemony bitterness of our beloved Meyer, enhanced by the smokiness of the grill. Perfectly paired with pan-fried white fish fillets and sauteed potatoes. An easily accomplished weeknight dinner. It all began with […]
