I think at this point in our relationship we all know how I feel about lemons.
I love them. I don’t just heart them … I.LOVE.LEMONS. They make me happy.
Which is why … I very obviously could not do must.love.food. and not include an episode about lemons.
I found some other folks who love lemons … almost as much as I do.
Marysol. You all know her. And if you don’t actually know her … you know of her … or you know of Edgar … the greatest little café around … only to be joined by Odile … it’s equally stellar little sister.
I heart Marysol and her lemon beignets.
I actually believe that Marysol’s beignets are the stuff happiness is made from. Totally, ridiculiously cheesey. But oh so true.
Then there’s Michael. aka Twitch. I called him Twitch during the filming of the show. I couldn’t help it.
So I figured when I apporached Michael about being on the show that he would show me how to make his lemon poppyseed pancakes. He did.
Plus he showed me how to make maple poached eggs. Amazing? Heck YA!
We also have this bonus clip of him teaching me how he makes his grapefruit hollandaise sauce. Equally amazing. You’ll have noticed … I wasn’t whisking quite fast enough … it’s something I’m gonna have to work on me thinks…
Add to all of that some big boy bacon soaked in maple syrup … which is … (as said on the show) … “it’s like bacon went to heaven and was happy” … whatever that means!
This entire episode makes me happy. I loved watching it. I loved filming both segments. I love love love lemons. And Marysol and Michael too.
