"Hope is the only bee that makes honey without flowers." -Robert Green Ingersoll

The refrigerator light goes on...

The rich creaminess of the Greek yogurt makes it the perfect base for a simple sauce. Simple is best, after all, and the touch of sweetness from the honey and tartness from the lemon juice makes for a perfect sauce for your dessert.

Try this on roasted fruit or even on a bowl of fresh berries.

Lemon Juice

I donít use bottled lemon juice. I feel that bottled juice does not taste anything like fresh squeezed lemon juice. This is because it is usually made from varying concentrations of lemon juice, water and lemon oil.

Fresh lemons keep fairly well in the crisper of your fridge (about 2 weeks). The juice of one lemon varies greatly. A large lemon has about 4 tablespoons of lemon juice but when a recipe calls for the juice of one lemon, you never really know. Start with 2 tablespoons and increase the amount for taste. If you must use bottled lemon juice, shake the bottle well. Use equivalent amounts of bottled to fresh lemon juice in a recipe.
