Grapefruit Curd Squares

Grapefruit Bars

Surpriiiiise! It’s another grapefruit recipe! I hope you’re not tired of them. Because I’m not.

Fish Tacos with Grapefruit and Avocado Salsa

Fish Tacos with Grapefruit and Avocado Salsa

I love, love, love grapefruit. Love it. I always let out a squeal when I see the big 18 lb bags of my favorite citrus in the grocery store each winter. Between salads, margaritas, cookies, cakes, curd, scones, and more margaritas, we’ll demolish a bag every 10 days or so. Even though we have our [...]

Glazed Lemon-Cranberry Loaf Cake

Glazed Lemon-Cranberry Loaf Cake

Merry Christmas, y’all! My week to host Project Pastry Queen fell during Christmas so I picked the most Christmasy recipe I could find: Glazed Lemon-Cranberry Loaf Cake. It’s “just” a small loaf cake scented with lemon zest, studded with fresh cranberries, and topped with a lemon syrup that soaks into the cake. I brought the [...]
