I love the extra little zing that citrus zest can give recipes and it doesn’t matter if I’m going sweet or savory. I use zest often in my herb blends and sauces and also in cakes, frostings & muffins.
Awhile back I posted a couple recipes that I garnished with candied lemon and I promised you I’d give you the Candied Lemon recipe! Well, finally, here it is, along with directions for other Candied Citrus.
You can have a plain old pork chop any day of the week, but why, when in a few minutes more you can pull off this gorgeous little dish and look like a hero?

I watched an episode of Diner’s Drive-Ins & Dives the other day, Land to Sea and they featured the Black Pelican Oceanfront Cafe in Kittyhawk, North Carolina. I was wowed by the Black Pelican Citrus Rosemary Brined Chicken with a Saute of Vegetables, and I couldn’t get it off my mind. Of course, I looked for the recipe and couldn’t help be bummed that it wasn’t one of the recipes given on the DDD website.
