I’ve mentioned before that I’m not the biggest chocolate dessert recipe fan. While I know that chocolate is a gift from the gods, it just doesn’t do much for me. I honestly prefer vanilla desserts over chocolate desserts.
That being said, I prefer lemon dessert recipes over vanilla desserts. And, potentially, over all other desserts. I’m a gal with an extremely fruity taste. It doesn’t matter what you put in front of me; if I have to choose between a fruity dessert (preferably lemon) and something else, I’ll pick the fruity one every time.

Lemon desserts just have such a memorable and mouth-watering flavor, don’t they? They can be sweet, tart, subtle, in your face, refreshing… I know, I know: it sounds like I’m rambling. I just love lemon dessert recipes so much. Sue me. 😉
