My Favorite Arugula Salad with Honey-Lemon Dressing

My Favorite Arugula Salad with Honey-Lemon Dressing
A few weeks ago my co-worker brought me some home-grown lemons. I asked you on Facebook what I should do with them. And I’m going to go ahead and give myself the boring award right now, because instead of all the fabulous things you suggested, I made salad.

In my defense:

1. It’s my favorite salad. And now it can be yours, too.

2. I was all ready to bake a lemon cake, and maybe sometime I still will, but then I made cookies. Like, a lot of cookies. And the cake option was crossed off the list.

3. Can I just tell you that you haven’t truly lived until you’ve had lemon salad dressing made with fresh-picked lemons? No, maybe I can’t tell you that; it sounds way too pretentious.

Let’s just get to the salad, shall we?

Raw Lemon Bar Bites

Raw Lemon Bar Bites

Just popping in with a quick post for you today! Mostly because bedtime snuck up very suddenly, and I need to prioritize sleeeep.

But also raw desserts. Those need to be prioritized as well.

Raw Lemon Bar Bites

What we have here are some raw lemon bar bites that I whipped up with the leftover dates from last week’s smoothie. I mean, I went through a fair bit of awkwardness to get those dates… don’t want to let them go to waste! These raw lemon bars were the perfect way to put them to use.

Chipotle Bloody Marys

Chipotle Bloody Marys

It seems like forever ago that I promised you my co-worker’s Bloody Mary recipe.  I hope you’ll forgive me for taking a while to get around to sharing, but I finally am! And I’m super excited about it, since I don’t often post anything boozy here. It’s always fun to shake things up a bit, right? And yes, having a brunch cocktail totally counts as shaking things up in my book. Number one partier right here!

Chipotle Bloody Marys

Not really.

If you know me, you know I’m not much of a hard alcohol lover. Though I mostly stick to beer and wine, I’ve broadened my horizons over the years, and the list of cocktails that I no longer find offensive is as follows: margaritas, mojitos, Bloody Marys. You can probably guess, given the fact that those three cocktails use three different liquors, that the alcohol is not what draws me in. Although I will say that a weak cocktail is pretty disappointing. Too bad I live in Utah, where there are laws that mixed drinks have no more than 1.5 oz of booze each. Don’t get me started on Utah liquor laws… That’s why we have to make our own Bloody Marys, people!

Lemony Rainbow Chard Egg White Frittata

Lemony Rainbow Chard Egg White FrittataSince embarking on my ice cream journey, I’m become something of an egg white master. You see, every ice cream recipes involves egg yolks, and lots of ‘em, but never the whites. So it’s no surprise that I have tupperwares full of egg whites in my fridge, just waiting to be whipped up into something tasty. Breakfast burritos are my go-to egg-white-user-upper-recipe. But they don’t contain nearly enough produce when you’ve also just received your very first heaping CSA box!

Lemony Rainbow Chard Egg White Frittata

This past week was my first CSA delivery of the summer. I’ve never tried out a CSA before, so I was super excited to receive all this gorgeous fresh produce straight from a local farmer. In addition to the above picture, I also signed up for a box of berries every week (blackberries this week, mmmmmm) and a dozen eggs every other week.

As excited as I was for all these goodies, I was also slightly intimidated. What do you do with turnips? What do spring onions taste like? (Answer: really strong green onions!) How long is this chard going to last in the fridge? Should I eat these beet greens or toss them? And how am I going to eat all this stuff on my own while Nate is in Peru for the next week?

Fudgy Lemon Curd Brownies

Fudgy Brownies with Lemon Curd

There’s a saying: When life gives you lemons, make brownies.

I think it’s something like that?

Fudgy Brownies with Lemon Curd

I hope I’m right, because it’s a saying I live my life by.

When you find yourself home alone on your birthday: brownies.

When your friend’s crazy ex-boyfriend is making her life miserable: brownies.

And when you’ve overdosed on coconut and still have half a batch of lemon curd left: brownies.
