Lemon Love

Sometimes you just get lemons! Like when your laptop has a nervous breakdown and refuses to download the photos from your camera. No Monday blogging as planned...

But we all know that lemons can be delicious and lead to yummy things (a few captured by my trusty iPhone). Like a casual Sunday supper that focused on the bright sunny flavors of lemon. Have you made Watson Kennedy Ted's Lemon Orzo with Feta from Style and Simplicity? So easy and delicious. A Meyer Lemon Olive Oil Cake from Round Pond Estate. Worth every drop of the entire bottle of olive oil you pour into it. A gray day so you can't set the table in the garden? That's okay, pretty peonies and a mix of casual dishes (vintage and new) that you can throw in the dishwater and your best silver, crystal and linens look as pretty indoors as out.

Happy Monday, all. Don't forget, if life serves you lemons, you  can always make them into something delicious! XOXO


  1. OMG your peonies, painting and table are fabulous! You have me craving orzo and lemon cake:) So light yet so satisfying, if you were closer I would invite myself to dinner! Hope your computer woes are on the mend.....have a great night.

  2. You should come to the annual FĂȘte du Citron in Menton in February. There are 15m tall sculptures made of lemons. We can make lemon cakes together.

    1. Jeanne? Are you listening to me? This is truly one offer that you should not refuse. Just trust me. :)

  3. Okay........I am definitely making the pound cake! Orzo is delicious and I don't think I've tried Ted's recipe so I need to do that asap;) My Spa salad is the perfect counter balance, ha .. and you know I love all food;)

    LONG day at the office and I am so behind on correspondence.

    Have a good evening!

  4. Ooooh, lemon olive oil cake. Now that sounds fantastic, Jeanne! And I love your watercolour. Fantastic! Anita

  5. I love lemons too! I eat an egg salad for breakfast almost everyday with watercress, scrambled eggs, olive oil and a good dose of lemon juice! I especially crave lemons in the hot weather! xo K

  6. I can't wait to make the lemon olive oil cake...great treat for the weekend! I always have a plate of lemons in the the smell and the look of a plate of lemons ;) your art is stunning as always! xx

  8. Our mouth is watering, Jeanne! Sometimes making lemonade and cake and orzo is the best thing to do....
