They say "when life hands you lemons..."

Well, my big sis in sunny CA has been handed lemons, a whole tree of them, both figuratively and literally, but for this post we will stick with the literal lemons.

I raided her tree while I was visiting and have been creating lemon wonder at home in Jersey. It helps that her lemon tree is full of Meyer lemons, which are the sweet kind. So far the girls and I have made a batch of lemonade, a pan of "Lemonies" which are a lemon bar cookie, and I made gluten free Eblskivers filled with lemon curd. The other night we had chicken with a creamy lemon and artichoke sauce. I still have lemons. So today I made Lemon Buddies and lemon glazed short bread for Easter. I still have lemons.

Just in case you have a sister with a lemon tree or a slight "eyes bigger than stomach" problem like I do, I figured I would share my Lemon Buddies recipie with you. They are so yummy, but have no redeeming health value.

Lemon Buddies:


9 cups Crispex cereal

1-1/4 cup White Chocolate Chips

1/2 a stick salted Butter

2 Tablespoons Lemon Zest

2 tablespoons Fresh Lemon Juice {strained from pulp and seeds}

2 cups Powdered Sugar


Combine the white chocolate chips, butter, zest and lemon juice into a medium bowl.

Microwave for 30 second and stir. Repeat until the mixture is creamy and melted.

Drizzle the white chocolate/ lemon mixture and toss to coat.

add in the powdered sugar. Gently stir to coat the cereal in the powdered sugar.

Spread back out on a large piece of parchment paper and let cool/dry.
