It's time again for
Secret Recipe Club (Secret Recipe Club) reveal! My secret blog assignment this month was The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch. I have really enjoyed Shelby's blog since I first found it through SRC, so I was very excited to have the chance to choose and share a recipe. I am especially in love with that blog header because those cinnamon rolls look amazing! (I actually made a variation of one of her SRC recipes once - Apple Filled Cinnamon Rolls)
As with all SRC assignments, the hardest part is narrowing it down and deciding which recipe to try. Here are just a few of the other recipes that caught my eye:
- Thai Peanut Chicken and Noodles
- Garlicky Scrambled Eggs with Chickpeas and Cilantro
- Coconut Crunch Cookies
Seriously, this smelled so good! From the time I melted together the honey lemon garlic rosemary butter, to the time it came out of the oven. If only it had tasted as good as it smelled. It was good, but the flavor of the lemons kind of took over. We wanted to taste all the flavors we were smelling.
So, next time, I'm cutting the lemons down and maybe using 1 lemon in the sauce - or maybe just 1/2 of a lemon. I'll definitely keep the lemon wedges in, though. They bake down and fall apart, and taste amazing when you suck what's left of the lemon off of the rind. The chicken was really good and moist, and the potatoes were cooked perfectly, so I'd say this recipe is a keeper. If you really like a lot of lemon flavor, then go ahead and use the 3 lemons. Otherwise, use a bit less lemon, and I think it will be absolutely perfect.
