The open call for meyer lemon poachers still stands. No one has yet taken me up on the offer...except for the opossums who keep leaving mangled up lemons in the middle of our weed garden. I'm here to tempt you to come collect a basket of lemons by pulling out the blow torch to make these lemon meringue s'mores.

Homemade lemon meringue marshmallows http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/23/homemade-lemon-meringue-marshmallows/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/23/homemade-lemon-meringue-marshmallows/#comments Tue, 23 Sep 2014 08:47:41 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7823 Lemon Meringue Marshmallows



When we moved into this house in March of last year, we discovered a blooming meyer lemon tree in the backyard. Without so much as a wave hello to the tree, it produced ripe fruit nearly 8 months of the year, starting as soon as we moved in. An impressive "welcome to the neighborhood" treat. This year, California produce seem to have gotten a bit confused.

Cherry Garcia cupcakes: Chocolate chip cupcakes with cherry frosting {gluten-free} http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/20/cherry-chocolate-chip-cupcakes/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/20/cherry-chocolate-chip-cupcakes/#comments Sat, 20 Sep 2014 08:00:16 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7764 Cherry Garcia Cupcakes



Before you start screaming that I'm a month late and it's not cherry season anymore, just hear me out. Rather than juicy summer berries, these cupcakes get their tart cherry flavor from freeze-dried cherries folded into the frosting - available all year round! I picked up this freeze-dried berry frosting trick from my friend Maryanne (The Little Epicurean) - it's her smart way of infusing intense berry flavor into frosting without ending up with drippy soft icing that won't hold its shape.

(At the end of this post, sign up to win a prize pack of these dainty decorative cupcake liners!

Double mint chocolate chip ice cream sandwiches http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/17/double-mint-chocolate-chip-ice-cream-sandwiches/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/17/double-mint-chocolate-chip-ice-cream-sandwiches/#comments Wed, 17 Sep 2014 23:47:24 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7732 Mint Ice Cream Sandwiches



My Nana taught me many important life lessons. For starters, she made sure I knew how to eat popcorn politely - "one piece of popcorn at a time [...will keep you from looking like a fool when you drop half a handful down your shirt while shoveling it in your face]." (My husband is still trying to teach me that lesson).

Caprese fettuccine with Italian chicken sausage http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/10/sausage-caprese-fettuccine-spinach-buratta/ http://www.snixykitchen.com/2014/09/10/sausage-caprese-fettuccine-spinach-buratta/#comments Wed, 10 Sep 2014 08:56:53 +0000 http://www.snixykitchen.com/?p=7640 Caprese Fettuccine



This wasn't supposed to be today. No - today was supposed to be a two-part dessert to use up our fruiting meyer lemon tree. Then sometimes things just happen. Things like your fall wardrobe barely fitting coupled with the realization that the last three recipes you've shared were desserts.
