    Lemon, Herb and Garlic Marinade

    Lemon Love: Meyer Lemon/Garlic Infused Olive Oil and Gremolata

    Infused oils are such a simple and easy way to add flavor to your favorite dish.  During one of my many trips to Trader Joe’s, I came across a bag of beautiful Meyer Lemons. Without a plan for using them, I tossed a bag into my basket. I just love anything lemon flavored, so I knew that I would have fun experimenting with these golden beauties. That evening, as I was scrolling through one of my social media sites, a delicious looking recipe popped up on my news feed. One Skillet Lemon Butter Chicken and Orzo I made my own crockpot version using much of the same ingredients. The flavors…
