16 Amazing Citrus Recipes

16 Amazing Citrus Recipes

By Jessica Smartt, Contributing Writer

Citrus fruits satisfy a deep longing within my soul.

I went to college in frigid western Pennsylvania, where fresh fruits seemed a rarity in the cafeteria line. For four years straight, I would literally eat an orange after lunch and dinner. Not the most balanced eating, but it sure tasted good to me! Juicy, tart, sweet … aren’t you craving an orange now?

I tend to think of citrus as winter fruit, but actually, they can be just delicious right about now, in springtime.

Perfect as springtime snack or kids’ picnic lunch, many citrus fruits stand alone as a healthy snack. 

But there are more creative uses, too. Here are a few unique ways to prepare and eat citrus fruits:

Confessions of an imperfect homemaker

Homemaking is hard work (believe me! I know)! Managing the house, the finances, the marriage, kids, cooking, schooling, pregnancies and working from home can be so overwhelming. Yet in this "I can do it on my own" day and age, we so often don't know how to ask questions or even who to turn to for help. In my own journey as a homemaker, I was shocked at how little I knew when I first started on this path.
