Lemon Meringue Pie, Oh My!

Being one of 27 grandchildren, one on one time with Gramma is really special. Gramma Dorothy is a very good pie maker. On this day, she and Caite decided to make a lemon meringue. An internet recipe, improvising without a rolling pin (isn't that what empty wine bottles are for) or a rolling canvas, lots of pots and pans later, some angst and a lot of laughter, the golfers, Delse and Elaine, were the recipients of this amazing effort. Thanks you girls!

Ready for the oven...

Baked and ready to eat...

Lemons and More

When you have a Meyer lemon tree and a prolific producer of fruit it is, you are constantly on the look out for lemon recipes. This one I found in the new Oregonian cookbook which I discovered at Costco and was made possible by this delightful machine gifted to us by Rick's sister, Marcy, many years ago.

This machine is so simple, much better than the old fashioned ice cream maker. No salt, no ice required. Just put the inner container in the freezer. Overnight is best. Make the ingredients and pour in. Turn the crank every 3-4 minutes for a total of 20 minutes.

Meyer Lemon Frozen Yogurt 
2 1/4 cups plain low fat yogurt
3/4 cup whipping cream
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 T light corn syrup
1/3 cup fresh Meyer lemon juice
1 T grated Meyer lemon zest

Whisk all together in a mixing bowl.
Process in an ice cream machine according to manufacturers directions.
Eat a lot!
