Saturday Chitchat with Janine – Volume 61
Happy Saturday, everyone,
I hope your weekend is starting on a good note. I mean, of course, since today, I have been sharing my favorite lemon treats from the blog!
I don’t think I know one person who doesn’t enjoy a sweet, delicious lemon dessert. It’s always a major hit when I present my family with a new recipe. Does your family love lemon treats?
Over the years, I have been perfecting my lemon recipes. I can finally say that I have conquered everyone to taste so delicious you’ll want thirds!
My goal this spring and summer is to bake so much, create new recipes, and post them to the blog for you to make! The only challenge with this dream is that I can’t gain the pounds! Thankfully, I have family, friends, and neighbors who love to be my taste testers.
I am just too excited to show you my lemon dessert, so scroll down to find a new family favorite treat without further to do.
A Personal Note from Janine
I absolutely love lemon desserts.
This spring, I’m obsessed with lemon desserts, and I recently obsessed over making a gluten-free lemon cake. There is nothing as refreshing as a lemon. The color and the taste are so light and irresistible.
There is a family reason for tackling a gluten-free version of this cake. My daughter was gluten-free when she was little, and then in her teen years, she wanted to give up this restrictive diet. If you know teens, you can’t tell them what to do with their eating habits. That makes sense, right?
But now that she is older, she went back on this particular diet, and I’m happy to report she feels much better.
Well, long story short, I’m revisiting gluten-free baking and cooking. And this week, I made this delicious and moist lemon cake recipe. I only had to make it four or five times to ensure I got all the measurements correct.
But who’s counting!
And if you are wondering if I eat my desserts, I have a few taste test bites, and then I deliver them to friends and family. I spread my sweet desserts around the neighborhood!
I hope you’re having a lovely and relaxing weekend, and welcome to another Saturday Chitchat!

This smooth Gluten Free Lemon Drizzle Cake is wheat-free but tastes like it has wheat.
It’s similar to a lemon pound cake recipe minus the wheat flour. The intense lemon flavor makes it one of the best lemon treats around.
This Lemon Tart Puff Pastry is so easy to make! I love how it tastes like it was made in a fancy bakery.
To make this dessert, there is a trick. The key is to use fresh homemade lemon curd, but lucky for you, I have a curd recipe on the blog.

Speaking of the lemon curd recipe, here it is! This recipe is perfect for the puff pastry dessert above, but it tastes great with scones, bread, and other sweet treats!
The recipe is easy, and you only need five ingredients, making it one of my favorites.
Today, I’m sharing the Best Lemon Sour Cream Pie recipe. This lemon pie has a rich, smooth lemon flavor similar to my favorite English Lemon Curd recipe.
Of course, this homemade pie has sour cream, which mellows the sweetness and creates a luscious taste!
So, when your garden is full of Meyer lemons, it only made sense to develop a Carbonated Lemon Iced Tea Recipe.

My Tip – Household Lemon Tips
Helpful Household Lemon Uses
Growing up, my grandma loved to garden. When she came in from tending to her flowers, her hands were covered in dirt. She would cut a lemon in half and rub the inside of the lemon around her muddy nails. Surprisingly, it cleaned her nails beautifully!
Another use for lemons is to clean tarnished silverware. I just took one out of the drawer, and somehow a fork was tan color like someone baked it in the oven. I rubbed a cut lemon on the fork, and the lemon washed away the discolored parts. I’m not sure how this happened.
This fresh lemon tea soothes a sore throat nicely. It’s my favorite for a cold! Also, if you have a sore throat, squeeze some lemon in a mug and add a bit of honey and hot water.
There are a lot of uses for lemons, and I’ll keep trying new ones. I’ll report back later!
My Latest Obsession – Ina Garten’s Lemon Chicken with Croutons
This lemon chicken recipe has been one of our favorites for dinnertime. This isn’t a lemon treat, but it is a lemon dish. If you cook chicken, try this recipe for a twist, and get ready for this meal to become a favorite like ours.
Ina Garten’s lemon chicken recipe is an unusual meal yet delicious and straightforward. It’s unique because you place the chicken on a bed of rustic garlic croutons when you serve the chicken. My mouth is watering already.
When my family wants something quick and easy but still healthy, we look for this recipe, and it never disappoints.
Above, I have linked the cookbook of some of Ina Garten’s amazing recipes, including her Lemon Chicken recipe.
How are you doing? I hope you’re well and have the time to bake some delicious lemon treats. Wherever you are, stay warm, or stay cool and bake on! This is the time to experiment in the kitchen before the summer heatwave.
