HOMEMADE LEMON PEPPER FROM SCRATCH

1/2 cup black peppercorns (or cayenne pepper, etc)
3 TBS dried lemon zest

Carefully remove the zest from the lemons using a zesting tool or vegetable peeler. The pith (white) part is very bitter and you don’t want that in your seasoning. Place the zest in a bowl.

Place the pepper corns on a cutting board and crack them by pressing down on a clean bottom of a heavy pot or pan. You don’t want them ground, just cracked in large pieces. Put in the bowl with the lemon zest.

Use a wooden spoon and mash the cracked peppercorns with the lemon zest. This releases the lemon oil so it combines with the cracked pepper better.

On a small baking sheet or piece of foil, spread the peppercorn/lemon zest mixture out and place in a 200 degree oven. Turn off the oven and let it dry out overnight with the door closed. (If you have a gas oven, just leave it in the oven overnight with the door closed; the pilot light will dry it out.)

The next day, pulverize the mixture in a spice grinder or clean coffee grinder. Store in a cool, dark area.

BEST French Vanilla Cake Recipe

French Vanilla Cake

"I have made this cake 3 times in the past 4 weeks and have been asked to make it again for St. Paddy's day and Easter! I should have it down to a science by then. It is simply delicious and I have received rave reviews! Thanks so much for posting what I consider to be the perfect vanilla cake recipe."  by Michelle


Creamy Homemade Ice Cream Recipes

Ice Cream Recipes

"Being an ice-cream addict I searched the web and tried many recipes. Not wanting those with condensed milk I was able to cut the selection right down. And THEN I found your Homemade Vanilla Ice-Cream. Not having an ice-cream maker I had to use the instructions from other recipes and then added a pinch of salt (apparently that helps with the freezing!?) and 1 heaping Tbs of Custard Powder. I also added another egg yolk. And this is absolutely perfect. I never want to go back to bought ice-cream .... in fact I find it very disappointing. So thanks for your recipe - it is an absolute hit!" by Celia on Home Page
