Delicious Recipe To Welcome Spring
I worried about "not enough lemon flavor" but decided to go with the recipe as it was written. I found that it had plenty of flavor, perhaps not overwhelmingly lemon, but also not so strong that those who dislike lemon wouldn't eat it. Next time around, I'll try adding a teaspoon of lemon extract, which should give it additional tartness and zing. I might also try making it with lime juice and zest.
