At this lemony time of year, I add fresh lemon juice to virtually everything. (A helpful tip I've found really useful if you have an abundance of lemons is to juice them and freeze the juice in ice cube trays. Then you can defrost and use as needed. Once frozen, transfer cubes out of trays into bags or containers to keep them fresh.)
I love, love, love oatmeal raisin cookies! They are hearty, not too sweet, and if baked correctly, soft on the inside. Am I making you drool yet? Mmm...I can already taste them. Back to reality, the cookies that some of us are used to are loaded with sugar and extra calories from butter, so I'm going to teach you how to make a healthy alternative—just don't eat the whole batch! Sweetened with stevia, these are sure to be a hit at your home!
I was late to the game when it came to pecan pie. It was never served at family functions that I can recall, and when I did see it, the thought of all those walnut-looking nuts in my mouth had no appeal. Not only did I develop a taste for pecans (and walnuts) later in life, but the idea of an entire pie focused on them was also quite intriguing.
