‘Tis the season of citrus, and I have 10 Mouthwatering Citrus Recipes made from every variation of lemon, orange, lime that will tantalize your taste buds.
As you might know, I live in Portland, and I’m pretty sure that after this last rainy season I have seasonal mood disorder. If you don’t know what that is, you probably live in Southern California. We recently had our first few days of bright warm weather and my positive mood shot through the roof. That was the positive confirmation that I needed to know that the dark grey, low, wet Portland winter skies were giving me the blues. But there’s something else that depresses me during the winter months – the lack of incredible local produce! The Pacific Northwest produces some of the finest crops in the world, but the down side is that our growing season doesn’t last all year long. One of the things that gets me through these tough months is citrus. That’s right. To me, citrus represents the end of the holidays and the beginning of warm dry weather that has yet to come. I’m not shy of citrus recipes either. I’ve made everything from baked grapefruit, to grapefruit mimosas, to a grapefruit tequila slammer, to a healthy pomegranate orange arugula spinach salad and pomegranate orange muffins. That’s not even counting all the lemon and lime recipes that I’ve made! So if you’re getting over the winter blues like I am, hopefully these recipes will help tide you over until we are surrounded by berries and sunshine!
