Welcome to my Blog

Hmm you'll say...yet another food blog! And I'll beg to differ, although I must say my recipes are not hi-funda, and sometimes the pictures do not do justice to them (I'm working on that) but you'll find them extremely easy to cook, hassle free and down right delicious.
So if you are a newbie in the kitchen department or has not ventured into the kitchen for some strange reason (like me)...then you have come to the right place.

Happy Cooking!

Gorgeous Lemons!

Click to enlarge image

Here are some pictures of the lemon harvest from my backyard this season. The yield has been better from last year, as you can make out from the pictures the lemons are absolutely juicy and so very gorgeous to look at.

After distributing it among friends and family I'm still left with a lot of lemons. I wanted someone to please suggest what I can make with them....apart from lemon pickle, that is!

Well, Those lemons look really gorgeous !! I recollected our good old lemon tree tree we had in India at my parents house. It was sooo old, but its lemons were always large, and very juicy. We used to distribute them among neighbours, friends, relatives, then prepare some lemon pickle , and then extract the juice from the remaining lemons and freeze them in ice trays. Later put all the lemon juice cubes into a ziplock bag and store them for future use in any recipe as need arises.

Rahin: that's an impressive list. Can you please point me to some good recipes, coz I got loads of lemons ready to pop :)

Mona: Wow, freezing the lemon juice is a great tip...only problem is that there are soooo many lemons. But Insh'Allah I'll definately extract the juice soon.

Thanks a bunch guys,

Eid Mubarak Lubna !!

Hey there Lubna , firstly thanks for dropping by my blog :)

And wow these are a lot of lemons. Definitely no one recipe would consume all these but try , key lime tart, or lemon drizzle cake , or lemon cheesecake ! You'll be left over with lots so i guess pickling is the last option , or have u tried lemon jam or chutney ? even those turn out pretty good.

And i'm 2 days late but Eid Mubarakh !

Lubna said...

Mona: Eid Mubarak to you too!

Kate/Kajal: Thanks so much for the Eid wishes.
Pickling is also my last option...yeah all the recipes sound appealing, have you any recipes that I can get my hands on???
