      This is fabulous -- simply wonderful! For the record, I used three large lemons for the juice, and the zest of two of those lemons in this recipe. Just in case you are making a shopping list...

      This is sooooo delicious. I used it to make a Lemon Chicken recipe I found on a TV show called 30 minute meals. I think this is my new favorite

      Easy, quick, and delicious. That's my kind of recipe. Now, I've got to make more. Over a day and a half my son and I kept tasting with a spoon...not enough left for my tarts.
