Mini Blueberry Lemon Muffins

Everyone needs a basic blueberry muffin recipe, especially since it’s surprisingly hard to get a good one in the average cafe. They’re often too cakey or sweet. These are light and fluffy, and just sweet enough to be a muffin – not a cupcake.

Slow-Cooker Lemon Garlic Chicken

This is a classic “dump it and forget it” dish: just rub the chicken with seasoning, add some lemon juice and chicken broth, and set the timer. The result is the most tender chicken you’ve ever tasted with just the right amount of lemon-garlic flavor in every bite. The texture and tenderness of this chicken is unbeatable. After basting for hours at low heat, the meat is literally falling off the bone. It is juicy, aromatic, and deeply flavored with lemon, garlic, thyme, and a bit of rosemary.

Slow-Roasted Salmon with Fennel, Citrus, and Chiles

Don’t bother trying to divide this fillet into tidy portions. Instead, use a spoon to break it into perfectly imperfect pieces. And you don’t have to stick with salmon. Try this recipe with cod, halibut, or turbot filets.

Lemon Cream Icebox Cake

This lemon cake is super simple: Whip cream with fresh lemon zest and lemon juice, then layer it together with lemon curd (store-bought, or make it yourself), and yummy graham crackers. It’s intensely lemon-flavored, with lots of pucker to balance the sweetness, and the nutty, browned-butter taste of the graham crackers supporting the brightness of the lemon.
