A collection of some amazing recipes where Oranges are the star of the dish. This collection includes everything from drinks to desserts and the delicious citrus flavor will make you think of warm summer days.
I love oranges they always remind me of warm summer days. It might be the refreshing citrus flavor does it or that for years I receive a case for Mother’s Day when the weather is officially getting warmer. Either way they are a delicious reminder of beautiful summer days.
My sister lives really close to an orange grove and because she knows how much I love California oranges, she sends them to me periodically, but I can always expect a case for Mother’s Day.However, every time she sends them I go through the same thing, what do I do with all of these oranges? There is an endless amount of delicious recipes I’ve found, but I always have a hard time narrowing down, which ones do I try.
Here’s a list of the recipes that caught my eye this time, maybe you can help me narrow it down before the oranges go bad. What 3-4 recipes would you choose to make?
