Having all those fresh lemons around inspires my cooking too. I never would have made a lemon cake with lemon glaze had I not had a few extra lemons hanging around. I know for a fact I wouldn't have attempted to learn how to make real lemonade, lemon sherbet, or lemon-mint water had I not been inspired by Martha Stewart and the sight of those gorgeous lemons. There's just something about spring/summer and lemons that seem to go together. Fall/winter feel like cinnamon to me (a future post? You bet!), spring and summer belong to lemons.
