We love lemon flavor.Â It’s one of The Chef’s favorite flavors.Â So with Father’s Day literally around the corner, I decided to hunt for some lemon recipes that The Well Fed Son and Daughter and I could choose from to make something yummy for him this year…. to surprise him.
The Daily Meal’s Culinary Content Network
I turned to our friends in The Daily Meal’s Culinary Content Network, some of the best food bloggers on the internet.Â You will find lots of other delicious recipes from this group on this Pinterest Board.
We were so honored to be invited to join them several months ago.Â They have been a welcoming, warm and extremely talented group of people.Â I knew they would have some ideas for us.Â I was right!
I have been blog hopping secretly ever since and now you see that it obviously will not be a surprise.Â My problem is that after I began getting some suggestions, I realized there was no way I was going to be able to decide which one (or two?) we would make.Â I mean…. look at this selection!

21- Fresh Lemon Mousse by Patti Zamorski Stagich @ Comfy Cuisine
Could not leave it out completely!Â Chalk another one up to…. Mommy Brain.Â Yes, it exists.
So…. The Chef loves risotto.
But he’s been talking about findingÂ a good lemon pound cake recipe for a while.
Then there are all of those other great options…. what to do … what to do?!
So I figured… we live in America, full of people with opinions about everything under the sun.Â Let’s have a vote!Â Then we can either go with the winner if there is a clear one…. or we’ll just let The Chef decide.
So leave us a comment below…. or click here to leave the number with our other Facebook fan votes, if you would rather vote there, or tweet us and let us know which number you would go with!
So…. surprise, surprise Honey!Â It’s a few days early and you now know what at least one of your Father’s Day treats will be.Â Thank you for being “The Best Daddy in the Whole World.”Â
We’ll see what kind of votes we get and then go from there.Â We’ll let you know after Father’s Day what we decided to make and how it turned out.
