  1. Love this citrus party, as well as your Lemon Meringue Pie post on Food52!! I have a half-crate of grapefruit to use up, so this inspiration comes just in time. One of my go-to recipes are Shaker Citrus Pie/Tarts: http://www.nothinginthehouse.com/2012/12/shaker-orange-tarts.html and I've also been loving variations on this Grapefruit Chess Pie adapted from the Lee Bros: http://www.nothinginthehouse.com/2013/04/grapefruit-chess-pie.html I tried it with blood oranges and it turned out well--might also try tangerine!

    1. Ah! How could I have forgotten both chess and shaker pie? Thanks for sharing these!

    2. Thanks for including it! As always, your photos are just stunning.

  2. I'm in love with citrus at the moment. And I just posted a citrus recipe this morning too!

  3. Oh my!! This is my kind of party...

  4. YES. The best part about winter. Thanks so much for including my cake, Yossy! Now about that yuzu maple leaf cocktail...

  5. What gorgeous photos! I too am a serious citrus lover. It's something that gets me through the darkness and gloominess of winter. Lovely ideas you have here. :)

  6. I DEFINITELY want to come to this party! :-)

  7. GORGEOUS photos. You're killing me.

  8. I'm always amazed by the cuteness of your pictures, they have that cozy-natural vibe to me! :-)
    Here are two of my favorite citrus recipes, both with oranges.

  9. Thank you for the citrus inspiration! I have so many oranges still lying around my countertops, and now I know just what to do... I'm starting with your rice pudding.
