19. The Best Greek Chicken Marinade

The Best Greek Chicken Marinade

This simple chicken marinade infuses the classic Greek flavors of lemon, garlic, and oregano plus marinating chicken in yogurt for a more tender bite. That’s what makes this little diddy of a recipe the best lemony, best garlicky, best Greek-y oregano-ish chicken marinade for chicken in yogurt to create the yummiest tender bite you just might ever eat. Because dried herbs are stronger in flavor than fresh, I’ve found that dried oregano works best for this marinade, and a healthy dose of it is definitely required.

Healthy Lemon Sorbet

Lemon Sorbet……!! I love lemon flavor very much but never thought I would fall for lemony flavor even in my dessert, yes I loved it so much. Sorbet is a frozen dessert made from sweetened water with flavoring (typically fruit juice or fruit puree). Sorbet is basically a water + sugar + fruit combo frozen, churned well to break the ice crystals to get a smoother finish. When I saw this lemon sorbet when I was googling for ice cream recipes, I had no excuse as it was so easy and with just 3 main ingredients it tempted me to try at that instant. I wasn’t sure whether it would really turn out like how a sorbet would be like or taste like but to my surprise, it came out soooo goood. I enjoyed the sorbet to the core, perfect for this summer.

10. Lemon Magic Custard Cake 

Lemon Magic Custard Cake

I’ve been hearing about these lemon desserts. One batter, three layers. Magic. It’s a rainy evening and there’s nothing good to watch on TV. I have nothing better to do, so why not give it a whirl? So if I do this correctly, the top layer should be cake; the middle layer a custard; and the bottom layer a stiffer custard layer, more like flan. The one thing I will note is that the battery itself will be more like a crepe batter, so don’t be alarmed if you were expecting the batter to have a normal cake batter consistency.

6. Lemon Ricotta Pancakes Recipe

 Lemon Ricotta Pancakes Recipe

These Lemon Ricotta Pancakes are definitely worth the extra effort. The key to a perfect pancake is all in the texture, a perfect balance of moistness and airiness. The ricotta cheese helps to achieve that while the lovely lemon adds a bright, citrusy flavor. Start with cold butter in your skillet when it’s time to fry so that the pancake has time to cook without the butter burning. For serving, make sure to be generous with the honey butter, and use pure, high-quality maple syrup. Our Canadian founder takes her maple syrup very seriously and recommends that you do the same.
