{ Lemon Basil Porkchops }

These porkchops were seriously so tasty! I got the recipe off CaterTots

1 egg, slightly beaten

1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon butter, melted
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
1 teaspoon dried basil
4 boneless pork loin chops

In a shallow dish, combine the egg and lemon juice. In another shallow dish, combine the bread crumbs, butter, lemon peel and basil. Dip pork chops in egg mixture, then coat with crumb mixture. Place in a 9x13 baking dish coated with nonstick cooking spray. Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes.

{ Amazing Lemon Blueberry Muffins }

2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
zest of one lemon
1 egg
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shortening (or butter*)
1 cup frozen blueberries

Topping (this makes extra - you can try cutting it down if you want...I personally like lots!)

1/2 cup butter, melted
1 Tb lemon juice
1/2 cup sugar

Mix dry ingredients and set aside. Beat eggs, milk and shortening. Stir in blueberries. Add dry ingredients and stir gently to combine. Bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Combine butter and lemon juice. While the muffins are still warm, dip the tops in the butter and lemon juice, then dip in sugar. Makes 12 muffins.

*I substitute butter because I love the taste! It works great either way.

{ Strawberry Shortcake Cookies }

These cookies are so stinkin good. They're like a mini portable version of the classic summer dessert! They also would make really good breakfast cookies! You must make them. Now.


2 cups of strawberries, diced into 1/4" peices
1 teaspoon lemon juice
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons of butter
1/2 cup + 1 Tablespoon of sugar
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
* Extra sugar for sprinkling

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Combine strawberries, lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of sugar and set aside. Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and remaining sugar. Cut in the butter with a pastry cutter (or just use your fingers to 'rub' it in) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in the heavy whipping cream slowly until the dough starts to come together. Now stir in the strawberry mixture. Using an ice cream scoop or similar size spoon make balls and place on cooking sheet. Sprinkle the tops with sugar.

Bake for 8-12 minutes depending on oven tempertures. Enjoy!
