If you like lemons, and are searching for  a healthy “treat” then this recipe from  Rose Reisman Brings Home Light Cooking is the answer!! It’s super easy to make and its also pretty healthy with only 3 g of fat per half slice. Not to mention, the loaf freezes beautifully.

I also want to share my love for this gadget that I picked up by the cash register. (can you say Impulse Buy?) at Kitchen Stuff Plus. It not only helps me squeeze lemons and limes but it measures the quantity for me – all in one GIZMO. Cant remember how much I paid for it – but whatever it is – it’s making me happy!! Oh how I love gadgets that make me happy.
