Desserts-LemonMeringuePie-010

In our household lemons are used almost every day. Fresh squeezed lemonade year round is one of my favorite beverages. With Valentines Day coming up, I’m thinking of making a lemon meringue pie. Yellow has really been my color lately.  With my camera out of commission for a week or so, until I can look at it and see what’s wrong, I’ve been taking photos with my phone and joining Instagram. Between Pinterest and Instagram, I’ve sure gotten a case of photo taking envy. I wonder if I’ll ever take such awesome photos. I am truly hoping it’s just a lighting thing that causes my photos to be so lacking.  Anyways, back to lemons-ah.

I found this delicious lemon scrub here, a great holiday 2015 gift idea.

And a household cleaning spray here, I use this every day. It works!

Thinking ahead to Easter I’m thinking of making lemon meringues in a jar. How cool is that?

It’s time for chocolate isn’t it? What with taxes and the Superbowl, snowstorms and such. I subscribe to Bon Appetit and they recently had a scrumptious recipe for Better than Nutella Hazelnut Spread. My husband loves chocolate and his favorite sandwich is one that’s made with hazelnut spread. I love making it homemade instead of buying it. Try this recipe I think you’ll love it too.

February is one of my favorite months. I’m big on romance, I love Valentines day. In fact our home has been decorated for the big day since the second week of January. Our wedding anniversary is also in February, this year it’s our 20th.  We’ve decided to book a romantic getaway to San Diego for the month of June. A bit of ocean, sun and warmth to celebrate 20 years of marital bliss. I’d like to go now but unfortunately this is the busiest season for an accountant. I’m also studying for the CPA exam I’ll be taking in May, so a vacation after that will be very appreciated.

Until next time, enjoy February!
