Pucker Up: Great Lemon Dishes

Lemon is a unifying flavor. Really -- can you name more than like two people who don't like a squeeze on their salmon, some juice in their tea, or a cool, tall glass of lemonade. You can't? Exactly.

These recipes -- from sweet to savory to snack-worthy -- all take lemon and make it the central part of their flavoring. Start with Herb and Lemon Popcorn, move through Lemon Fettucine and head towards Lemon-Almond Cake.

Pucker up!
