I like many different types of fruit, but lemons are one of my favorites. I love the flavor they add to my ice water and I use the juice to make my simple chicken recipes all the time. Lemons may be sour, but they really can add so much depth to your dishes without all the extra ingredients. Most of these recipes don’t make lemon the “star” of the dish, but they do highlight the flavor.

Lemons can add so much flavor without all the chemicals. From breakfast to salad dressings to desserts, give these delicious recipes a try. :: www.homeschoolgiveaways.com
