Cooking with lemon – Taste the Sunshine!
 Join Chef Gail as she takes you thru making homemade pasta, a delicious lemon entrée, and a wonderful lemon dessert! Lemons are as indispensable to everyday cooking as onions and garlic, and even more versatile. They are as content keeping company with savory fish, meat, or fowl, as they are sharing the sweet life with innumerable baked goods, marmalade, custards, and sorbets. Next time a recipe needs a little something to take it from good to great, reach for a lemon.
