    I'm not the most motivated cook in the world, but this book made me want to run out and buy lemons. My dad is the main chef in my house, which means he cooks for eight kids and two adults every night. My dad likes to experiment with spices and food combinations. My mom is always on us about eating healthier, which we do for the most part, but it can be hard to find a meal that all of us like. Everyone in my family likes lemons, so this was a great book to add to our cookbooks! I'm not the most motivated cook in the world, but this book made me want to run out and buy lemons.

    Sorry, can't recommend cookbooks with practically no pictures. A cookbook should be visually mouthwatering. Sorry, can't recommend cookbooks with practically no pictures. A cookbook should be visually mouthwatering.

    Impressed with the simplicity of some of the recipes and awed by a few hard ones. Already tried one and it was delicious!

    My lemon tree has been producing fruit for 5 months now, and I've been in constant search of ways to use this bounty, so the arrival of this book was quite timely.

It's a slim volume, just 125 pages in a small 7"x8" format, printed on thick high quality paper and interspersed with 22 beautiful full color photographs. Color is also incorporated into sketches and sidebars on almost every page, making this a pleasant reading experience. The carefully curated selection of 50 recipes will definitely help to consume my lemon crop in future years. I've tried several of the recipes so far and have bookmarked others for future use. The lemon crinkle cookies were so easy and are simply delectable - buttery and soft and lemony. I had to put them in the freezer to keep from over-indulging! The grilled flank steak with lemon chimichurri was also a great combination of salty and tangy. And as soon as our local farmer's market opens, I will be visiting to get corn on the cob, to make "grilled corn on the cob with smoked paprika-lemon butter". The book is prefaced with basic information on selecting and using lemons, including how to zest, juice and preserve a lemon. Included are chapters on breakfasts, salads, sides, vegetarian, seafood, meat and poultry, sweets, drinks and staples. Others have noted that the book will not lay flat due to its small format; however I've solved that problem by resting a lemon on the pages ! The recipes are clear and easy to follow, and appear to have been thoroughly tested. I look forward to diving further into this cookbook and trying many more of the recipes. Fortunately, even after the last lemon is plucked from my backyard lemon tree, I will still have juice and zest in the freezer, and weekly visits to the farmer's market to keep the fresh lemons flowing...

    Lemon lovers rejoice in a cookbook showcasing the versatile and humble lemon. Just like the fruit, there is sweet and sour to be found within. Ellen Jackson’s The Lemon Cookbook is filled with many recipes that are delectable. However the sour comes from the layout of the book, which leaves a sour taste in ones mouth, as it can be both confusing and frustrating to navigate. The ingredients are listed on the right hand side of the instructions, and sometimes span multiple pages, making it easy to Lemon lovers rejoice in a cookbook showcasing the versatile and humble lemon. Just like the fruit, there is sweet and sour to be found within. Ellen Jackson’s The Lemon Cookbook is filled with many recipes that are delectable. However the sour comes from the layout of the book, which leaves a sour taste in ones mouth, as it can be both confusing and frustrating to navigate. The ingredients are listed on the right hand side of the instructions, and sometimes span multiple pages, making it easy to over look an ingredient or section of ingredients all together. The recipes themselves are not for beginners. While there are a few that are simple, there are many that utilize techniques or cooking utensils, not found in every beginning cook’s arsenal. The directions are separated into segments, not steps, with each segment sometimes containing multiple steps within. Read the entire review at http://www.sandiegobookreview.com/the...

    I have never had a cookbook where I wanted to try every recipe! This is a beautiful book with lots of helpful information in both cooking with and consuming lemons. The recipes are concise. Uncommon ingredients even have info as to where to find them, although there aren't many. Thereby making these recipes very doable with plenty of on hand ingredients. The tips on how to select, prepare, and store the various lemon ingredients are great. I, also, enjoyed the design elements and pictures.

    I received the book for free through Goodreads Giveaways. Are you a lemon fan? Then this book is just right for you. Basically, thanks to this book, you can never split with your beloved lemons.

Although I could add even some more less known lemon-based dishes (as you see, I am a huge fan of lemons). One of the best taste twists were lemon gnocchi! And I loved the staples sections how to make your own ricotta or limoncello, because I compared them with store-bought and home-made ones and I would rather sacrifice extra time for that far less expencive but good limoncello!

    I received a free copy of this cookbook through Goodreads giveaways -- and I am genuinely delighted with it! Had I checked it out from the library, I would have decided it was a keeper and gotten a copy of my own. It's a lovely volume with loads of photos, some interesting and useful info on lemons and the recipes look excellent. There are only 50, but they cover a wide range.

    For the lovers of all things lemon. I wouldn't say I'm crazy about lemon but I do enjoy citrusy things every once in a while.
