Blueberry Salsa

Lots of fresh flavors combine to make this summertime blueberry salsa! www.lemonsforlulu.com

A simple and fresh salsa that is perfect for summer! Blueberry picking is just around the corner.  I would love to make it to the farm in person to get my baskets of blueberries.  The local picking farm opens at 8 a.m. but each year people arrive earlier and earlier to stake their spot.  Those go-getters are itching to lay claim to the plumpest, juiciest berries possible.  While I admire their tenacity, I’m just not that motivated.  Given the … Continue reading →

Jalapeño Popper Beer Cheese

Jalapeno popper meets beer cheese for a spicy, creamy and absolutley delicious appetizer! www.lemonsforlulu.com

 Beer cheese and jalapeno poppers come together for one flavorful dip!   Sometimes I'm secretly jealous of all my wine drinking friends.  There is just something about holding a wine goblet that makes them look more sophisticated.  Their wine glasses could be filled with Boones’ Farm, but they would still come off looking classier than I would with my aluminum beer can.   I know very little about wine.  I wish I could talk … Continue reading →

Garlic Leek and Goat Cheese Dip

Roasted garlic makes this goat cheese and leek dip extra creamy and flavorful! www.lemonsforlulu.com

This dip is doubly creamy with the roasted garlic and soft goat cheese!  The leeks add a subtle freshness. I was listening to satellite radio during one of my kiddie taxi cab trips this past week.  I was half listening and half dreaming up new recipes in my head when I was awoken from my daydream by the DJ talking about Instagram.  Except she wasn’t referring to it as Instagram, rather she was abbreviating it to “Insta." … Continue reading →

Cauliflower Fritters with Tzatziki Sauce

Simple Cauliflower Fritters with Tzatziki sauce www.lemonsforlulu.com

Cauliflower and potatoes are pan fried and served with a simple tzatziki sauce! It doesn’t get better than this! I was such a simpleton when I was a kid.  I mean, it didn’t take much for me to be thoroughly entertained.  I suppose that’s a good trait to have growing up in the 70’s.  The decade of only 4 tv channels that mostly aired adult programming.  No 24 hour Disney Channel for me. One of my favorite ways to pass the time involved a … Continue reading →

Blue Cheese Ranch Dip

Blue-cheese-ranch-dip www.lemonsforlulu.com

This blue cheese ranch dip is creamy and cool! A tangy partner for chips and veggies! (This post was sponsored by SunChips, but all opinions expressed are completely my own!) I make a lot of spicy food.  I can’t help it.  I love spice.  The spicier the better.  I make spicy sandwiches, and spicy pasta dishes, heck I put spice in fudge!   If I don’t add spice while I’m cooking, I drown the food on my plate in hot sauce.  It’s become an … Continue reading →
