So I thought I would start with these puppies.  They are awesome.  And those yummy orange/yellow beauties are Meyer lemons.  A cross between a lemon and a mandarin orange… WHAAAAT!!!

SOOO good.  You must start your search for them now.  They are impossible to find.  So if you see them BUY…..THEM…..ALL!!!

Meyer Lemons

They were totally worth the search.  Promise!  When you find them, make these!  You can also make these with regular lemons, they taste just as awesome.
