These last few days it's been feeling a little like spring around here! Rain, temps in the 40's and sun! I'll take it, even though I love winter and snow!

Lemon everything always reminds me of spring and summer! It's bright, fresh and you can make it sweet or even savory!

Today's post is a savory lemon recipe, but I'm joining up with some blogger friends of mine to bring you a collection of a whole bunch of lemon recipes!


If you scroll down past my recipe, you'll find links to 10 other amazing lemon recipes! Along with a few savory recipes, you'll also find some sweet ones! Something for everyone! Make sure you check them out and click over to view each recipe!

Not only does my rice have a burst of lemon, but it's buttery and full of garlic as well! It's definitely not the most healthiest of recipes, but great for a once in a while side dish along with some baked chicken or fish!

It's simple and you know that's what you'll mostly find in my recipe box around here!

What's your favorite way to use lemons?
