Lemons are versatile and lemon recipes can be enjoyed any time of the day. I’m jealous of people with lemon trees in their yard. Lemon water in the morning? Certainly.

I don’t leave the grocery store or farmers market without some lemons, and when a friend offers  some lemons off their tree I will take as many as they give me.
