Citrus: Sweet & Savory Sun-Kissed Recipes (A Cookbook Review)

by - October 28, 2015

I may not blog on a weekly basis anymore, but one thing you can be sure of is there will always be new cookbook reviews on Echanning. I received my current one on my doorstep a couple of days ago and I soon as I opened the box, I devoured each and every recipe on each and every page. As you can probably already tell by the title, these recipes are all citrus themed and while I don't think citrus is in season right now (I could be wrong), I still think there are plenty of delicious recipes that you could try out this fall and winter.

I don't think I've ever met a citrus-y food that I didn't like. Citrus desserts happen to be my favorite type of desserts. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE lemon merengue and key lime pie. Those are my Achilles' heels. So, you know when I opened to page 51 of this book and saw a recipe for key lime pie, I was jumping for joy!

What I especially love about this book, is that the ingredient list is small and the ingredients aren't that hard to find and you could actually pick up most of the ingredients at any of your local grocery stores.

I could try and describe all the recipes in detail to you, but I'm sure you would much rather see some of the recipes for yourself, right?

Below are some of my favorites. You also may notice as you look through my photos that I sort of picked favorites, the favorites being desserts over savory food. Hope you enjoy!!!

Ok so, I know this isn't a recipe but this photo of lemons was too beautiful not to add.

Burnt Sugar Meyer Lemon Tart

Valencia Orange Bread & Butter Pudding 

Turkish Yogurt Cake W/ Lime Syrup & Pistachios

Ok, so now that you've seen some of my favorites, tell me below what your favorite citrus foods are. If you want to know where you can purchase this cookbook, click this link.

As always, Thanks for reading!
