My sister was here from Illinois for a week so I was soaking up all the time I can with her and my nephew. We spent it full of beach days, pool days, lazy days, errand days, cleaning days. I love that her son is only 2 months older than Maddox. I can’t wait to watch the dynamic of their relationship shift and change as they grow older. I wonder who the trouble-maker will be.

Maddox had his first dip in the pool this week and loved every second of it. It’s amazing how they have a sense of what to do (i.e. kicking their feet & legs). It’ll be even better when he can hold his head up stronger. I was a fish when I was younger and Dave grew up on a lake so hopefully he’ll love swimming, too.

Anyway, here are some enjoyable links from around the web to start your weekend with.

Lemon Cookies

If you know me, you know one of my top favorite flavors is lemon. It’s the perfect mix of zest, tang, sour, and well.. lemon. Last week, it was the main ingredient in most of my dishes, including a very delicious lemon pasta, and I must say it adds such a perfect taste.

Sunday mornings lately have been dedicated to trying out a new baked goods recipe. It’s safe to say last Sunday I tried these remarkable lemon cookies and was not disappointed.

The recipe calls for a 18.25oz package of lemon cake mix but I grabbed a box of Duncan Hines and saw it was only 16.5oz. I used a little less vegetable oil and it did not alter the texture, taste, etc.

It’s a VERY quick and easy recipe for lemon-lovers. What are your favorite lemon recipes?
