I know I say this about a lot of things on this blog, but I really love citrus of all types. My favorite citrus fruits that I get excited over and oogle in the grocery store are ruby red grapefruits, Key limes, & Meyer lemons. Meyer lemon season is on its way out, but I just picked up my first bag of Key limes last week. They were actually a little sorry looking, but I couldn’t help myself. I have a problem. Expect to see some sort of Key lime confection here in the near future.

However, the lemon is probably the most commonly used citrus fruit and I think it is one of the most integral ingredients a cook can have in their kitchen. Lemons are on my perpetual list of groceries each week along with onions, garlic, milk, & eggs. No matter what I am making throughout the week, chances are I will use at least 1 lemon.

While I do use lemons all the time for cooking, lately I have also been a little obsessed with using lemons in my baking. So, I decided that this week will be all about the lemon here at imafoodblog. An ode to lemons, if you will. Most of the posts this week will revolve around delicious baked goods that I have made with varying degrees of lemony flavor. Stay tuned for lemony goodness baked into muffins, cakes, tarts, and pancakes. Hope you enjoy!
