Hearty Turkish Bride Soup

I tried out a new soup recipe, Turkish bride soup, from Annabel Langbein’s book: Simple Pleasure: the Free Range Cook. This soup was hearty from the lentils and bulgur, but tasted fresh from the fresh mint and lemon garnish.

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

I went through several recipes for Lemon Crinkle Cookies from scratch (without cake mix). I’ve never made crinkle cookies before, so it was not easy to decide which recipe to try. In the end I decided to play it safe and try the award winning recipe from LDS Magazine. The winner of best cookie recipe was the Lemon Crinkle Cookie by Lauren Brennan from Lauren’s Latest. The cookies turned out fine, but if I make it again next time, I would add a little bit more baking powder (or baking soda) to get more crinkles....more

Lemon Icebox Pie

Lemon Icebox Pie is a Southern dessert named “icebox” because in old times it was set in the refrigerator rather than baked. This is a no bake, eggless and lower-in-fat version. There are many variations of this recipe. Usually it is made using condensed milk. My version uses firm low-fat yogurt or Greek yogurt. I also added some lemon juice and finely grated lemon zest to give it more intense, tangy lemon flavor. The low-fat whipped topping helps to maintain a creamy, ice-cream like texture to the filling....more
