Welcome to my little world- I am thrilled that you are here. My most sincere hope is that this little blog is a source of laughter, inspiration and some seriously fabulous food (even if it is vegan!). Is it possible to maintain a vegetarian lifestyle below the Mason Dixon line? Come along with me and find out as I pound the pavement, travel and eat my way through life. Cheers!

When life hands you lemons...

Why not invite your friends over, open a bottle of something wonderful and make a fabulous lemon infused appetizer ?

This recipe below is so easy and is always popular. It is one of my mother in law's wonderful creations and is perfect in the summer when hot weather demands light and fresh dishes.

1 container fresh goat cheese
1 lemon
2-3 tablespoons olive oil
3 sprigs of rosemary- or get creative with any herb you like
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper

Place the goat cheese on a pretty serving dish and, with a fork, work with the cheese until it has the consistency of a creamy spread. Pour the olive oil over the cheese, coarsely chop the rosemary and add to mixture. Zest the lemon and sprinkle zest over dish and add a bit of fresh lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with flat bread, grilled baguettes or interesting crackers on a pretty serving piece like one of these from The Merry Martini.

What a wonderful idea. Lemon is one of my favourite cooking flavours. I will definitely have to try this combination - I think I would really enjoy it with a glass of icy white wine!
