Limoneira Lemon Uses and Review

Limoneira Lemons – Uses Review and Giveaway

Limoniera LemonsOne of my favorite scents in the entire world is lemons. There is no scent like lemon and it instantly evoke images of bright yellow color and a citrus filled fresh scent.

Since we are the humans to two cats that like to jump on counters, couches, beds and anything else that could be construed as a bed, safety in cleaning products is key. One day is occurred to me that my favorite scent was as versatile as it was good smelling.

Since I am on a quest to make the surfaces, and environment of our home safer for the humans and the cats, I was more them willing to receive a box of lemons from Limoneira Company to experiment with.

I am not sure that there is any use that lemons are not good for, so I am going to share what i decided to use this box of fresh for.

Lemon BreadThe first thing that I thought was that a lemon cake seemed lie a fresh idea. I know I wanted  a recipe that had a nice topping. After what seemed like hours of searching, I found the perfect recipe. I was so excited that I brought out my KitchenAid Mixer so all the ingredients would mix together perfectly. I was very happy as I saw the ingredients come together, and was very excited when it poured perfectly into the pan. I could barely wait the required 45 minutes, and when I opened the over I, instead of excitement I was filled with deflation. Apparently the baking power I used was expired by a while and the result was a flat bread. The bright side is the despite the dense nature, the flavor was fresh and delicious!

Lemon SprayWe have a blanket sucker in the house and his name is Murfee. Our cat Murfee was a little kitten when he was abandoned at 2 days old, and it left with him a couple of mother issues. Due to not being able to properly nurse on his mom when he needed comforting, he took to soft places. The fabric he prefers is fleece and while it does not hurt anything, it does make the blankets wet and soppy. We read that a simple water/lemon mixture sprayed on the surface would detour him but not hurt him. It also makes the house smell good, which is a wonderful addition and solves the problem in a natural way. The easiest way to spray is a simple spray bottle.

Glass of water with lemonI love a good glass of ice water, and for a more spa experience I added a slice of lemon. It made the water so much more fresh and gave me the feeling that I was having some “spagua” water at home. buy valtrex online no prescription

Tilapia with LemonFor dinner this past weekend we defrosted some Tilapia, cut up the lemons, and added salt and pepper and baked the fish in aluminum foil. After baking for almost 35 minutes we had lemon flavored Tilapia – it was very good! buy ventolin online no prescription

Meyer Lemon Bar with LemonAs lucky had it we had a mix for Meyer Lemon Bars, so we made those for dessert and added a couple squeezes of fresh lemon. I also candied some lemon rinds for the top, which added a nice candied fresh note to an otherwise plain mix. buy viagra black online no prescription
