Not only does the word luscious appear in this title but it describes the recipes within and the book itself – beautiful, beautiful book on a subject of which I am fond. I love lemons and recipes using the lovely flavor of lemons so this book was a no-brainer to be a big hit with me. the tart on the front cover is the best I've ever tasted -- and I had no trouble with it either which makes it even better! And there is a lemon cake with lemon glaze that beats most lemon desserts hands down.

I can't recommend the Ultimate Lemon Pound Cake enough. I enjoyed making it, I enjoyed glazing it, and - most importantly - I enjoyed eating it. :) I'm usually a little suspicious of cookbooks that feature big glossy ...more

Lemons - delicous. I haven't tried many of the recipes yet, but it is a cookbook filled with photos, which I always love, and the recipes I have tried have turned out as I expected them to. The sorbet is delicious.

I love lemons. I've made a couple of desserts from this book and they were all yummy. The lemon whoopie pies are to die for.l

I love lemons and this book is full of tempting dessert ideas. Hopefully I can make the lemon almond cake this week?

Try the Lemon Tart, pictured on the cover. It was easy and the result was excellent.
