Lemon & Blueberry Layer Cake

This cake to me just screams Spring! The freshness of the lemon and blueberry with the creaminess of the cream cheese just makes me so happy. This cake might look intimidating but it's really SO easy. Anyone can do it. Plus it looks pretty when you cut into it! Ok, let's get started....

Lemon Ricotta Crostini with Honey*

This is one of my absolutely favorite appetizers because of how easy it is. You can whip this up in less than 5 minutes and people will think you're a cooking goddess. The freshness of the lemon really brightens up the bland ricotta and makes this a dish you won't forget. Preheat your oven to broil. Put your baguette slices on a pan and drizzle with olive oil, salt, and pepper. Put in the oven to toast. Make sure you watch it so they don't burn! ...

Mediterranean Orzo Soup*

This is such an easy soup recipe. While I was in Greece last year one of my favorite things that I ate was chicken soup. After a long night of Greek dancing with some locals till 6 am in the morning we worked up quite the appetite. They took us to a place on Mykonos Harbor that never closes and ordered us up this amazing chicken soup with fresh lemon juice squeezed on it. It was just unreal. This is my version of that delicious s...

Lemon Rosemary Roast Chicken*

Who doesn't love a good, simple roasted chicken dish? This one is about as easy as they get and it is so flavorful from all the fresh lemon and rosemary. Not to mention this is a healthy dinner!

In a bowl mix together your chopped up rosemary, garlic, lemon zest, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and red...

Spring Granita*

Ahhh I can just see myself enjoying this delicious treat on a warm Florida day. A couple of weeks ago I went over to my grandmother's house for dinner. She is quite the cook let me tell you! She made a delicious meal then served us this. It was SO good I had to get the recipe. Come to find out it is my great-grandmother's recipe. How cool is that? It is extremely easy to make and you can store it away and do like I do and pop you...

Mediterranean Salmon*

Ok… anyone that knows me knows that I absolutely hate salmon. To me it’s way too fishy. BUT, this recipe will change your mind. My mom and I came up with this recipe after I brought home a huge chunk of feta from Greece (I’m pretty sure I snuck it in illegally…shhh) and didn’t know what to do with it! I’m not joking, there’s not an ounce of “fishy” with this recipe. This is such a great dish to make for one, two, three, or a cro...

Lemon Meringue Pie*

I feel like I say this a lot... but lemon meringue pie really is one of my favorite things in the entire world. I love the tartness of the lemon curd and the sweetness of the meringue. It's the perfect dessert for Spring or Summer and so much easier than you thought. First thing you want to do is preheat your oven to 400*F. In your own pie dish roll out your pie dough to fit your dish. Crimp the edge to make it look fancy (and ho...
