Lemons are in season! Summer seems to bring the best lemons to every corner of the United States. My 9-year-old grandson, unlike other kids his age, loves anything lemon. He, like his grandmother, is not a huge chocolate fan and prefers sweet and tart flavors.

We were celebrating his birthday and he requested a lemon cake. The recipe is entirely vegan and makes a super moist and delicious dessert. Since the frosting contains cream cheese (I used Trader Joe’s brand), I recommend storing it in the refrigerator under a covered cake stand.  However if refrigerator space is at a minimum and you don’t have a cake stand, opt for putting the leftover cake in a deep bowl and covering it with wrap.

ENJOY!

The one veggie my grandsons will eat, consistently, is broccoli. They don’t particularly like broccoli slaw, due to the texture. I found that by pulsing it in the food processor makes all the difference. This recipe comes together in literally 5 minutes and stays in the refrigerator for a few days.

Also, I paired it with an Ina Garten recipe passed on from my sweet niece. I did a little tweaking with the original but for the most part, it is all Ina!

The first recipe is for the broccoli slaw and the second for the Cous-Cous Salad.

ENJOY!

Perfect for summer and so-much-lighter than the typical mayo-variety! Feel free to experiment and add whatever veggies you like best. It is also perfectly fine to use bottled salad dressing in place of the oil/vinegar/seasonings seen below.

Easy to make a day ahead and store in the refrigerator.

ENJOY!
