Easy and refreshing lemon recipes that are perfect for any hot summer day! Here are the most popular twenty lemon recipes!


Hey friends!

If you’ve been following my blog for any amount of time, you may want to know {or already know} about my love and passion for all things lemon.

I wouldn’t necessarily say it’s a problem per say, but it’s definitely a spot of…worriment.

I love love love lemon, especially sweet applications of the lemon. But my husband thinks I’m NUTS because I choose vanilla and lemon and pistachio things over chocolate any day of the week and that is like….illegal to him. Whatever dude. You eat whatever I make, so the joke is on you.

I promise I’m actually a nice person in real life.

Anyways, I thought I’d make a fun little list of some of my favorite lemon recipes. I have over 40 lemon recipes on this lovely blog of mine and thought I’d pick out my favorites {even though they’re all my favorites.}

So, enjoy! And here’s to hoping you’re not boiling to death like we are here in NYC. Only 4 more days and my daughter is done third grade and schooooools out for summer. Sing along if you feel so inclined.

Have a great day, friends!!

    Ooooohhhhh yum. We love everything lemon in our house! Instead of that silly pilates challenge I just signed up for, I think instead I’ll challenge myself to make all 20 lemon recipes! That sounds easier for me to accomplish! 😉

    I looooov this. 💛💛
    I think I will try the Lemon Slushi and the Puffs. 😍
    Thank you for putting this together. Summer should be called “Lemonier” 🍋 🍋

    I too am a lemonaholic. I’m also diabetic so won’t be doing a lot of baking. I’ve been looking for a good lemon chicken recipe for years and finally found one on the internet the other day that satisfies my taste buds. Substituted Splenda for most of the sugar in the sauce, and it was yummy! Thanks for posting all your wonderful recipes.

    These lemon recipes look so refreshing! We have a Myer lemon tree in our yard and I’m always looking for recipes to use them in! 😋

    I love everything lemon! I found your blog through your contest winning Lemon Crinkle Cookies! I’m putting Blackberry Mint Lemonade on my summer bucket list!

    LOVE these Lauren! Lemon has to be one of my favourite types of recipes! Going to be trying your Chewy Glazed Lemon cookies first!

    OMG! This post is exactly what I love! I too am a lemon addict! Mmmm…I’ll be making some of these tasty treats soon 😉 One of my favourite quick lemon dishes is any pasta, LOTS of lemon juice and zest, olive oil, kale, sautéed onion, red pepper flakes, parmesan cheese, with S&P YUM!

    Thanks for the recipes. Lauren. Try to stay cool, my dear. My daughter lives in Portland, so I hear about your weather often. We spent 12 wonderful years in Tillamook, and I still consider Oregon my home. I am in Arizona now, where it gets up to 114 in the summer, but as they say here, “it’s a dry heat” (like that’s supposed to make it more tolerable)! I hope to get back home to Oregon soon. Hang in there, girlfriend!! I am going to go make some frozen lemonade to cool off!

    I too LOVE lemon. Thanx for putting it all together in one place. I guess I better get started baking. Thank goodness we are taking this week off of school.
