All About

Lemons

Lemons are one of a cook's most valuable ingredients, working in both sweet and savory dishes. Choose lemons with taut, thin skin; the fruit should give slightly when pressed. Stock up -- lemons keep for two to three weeks in a plastic bag in the fridge --and you'll find yourself grabbing them for everything from cake to hummus to chicken.

Tamari soy sauce is similar to regular soy sauce but is slightly thicker and has a richer flavor. It is available at most grocery stores. Besides being the perfect condiment for the tofu, this sauce makes a nice addition to the soba noodles -- just drizzle a little bit on top. This recipe is also featured in "Martha Stewart's Dinner at Home."

Lemon pound cakes aren't just for lemon lovers. Get the most out of the lemon flavor of this pound cake by grating zest first, then squeezing out lemon juice. Lemon zest, juice, and glaze give you triple the lemon for a crowd-pleasing pound cake.
