Love & Lemons Cooking Club – February!

Join the Love & Lemons Cooking Club Challenge this month! It’s easy to enter, and one lucky winner will receive a prize. Find all the details below.





Our Cooking Club is a fun way to celebrate the Love & Lemons community of readers. The concept is super simple—each month, I choose a recipe. You make it, and you leave a comment on the recipe’s blog post. At the end of the month, I randomly select one winner to receive a prize.

I love the sense of community that comes from so many people cooking one recipe each month. We’re kicking off our February challenge today with our banana bread recipe, and I hope you’ll join in the fun. Here’s how it works:

Join the Love & Lemons Cooking Club

  1. Each month, I choose one seasonal recipe. Sign up for our email list so you’ll know as soon as I share each month’s recipe.
  2. Make that recipe during the month.
  3. Leave a comment on the challenge recipe’s blog post by the end of the month. This time, the deadline is February 29! 
  4. For a bonus entry, send a picture of what you made to [email protected].
  5. For another bonus entry, post your photo on Instagram, tagging @loveandlemons and #loveandlemonscookingclub.

THIS IS A CHANGE from past cooking club challenges. A photo entry is no longer required. This month, comment on the recipe’s blog post to secure your spot in the drawing!

The Prize: A $200 Whole Foods Gift Card!

At the end of the month, I’ll randomly select a winner and share some of your photos. This time, we’re giving away a $200 Whole Foods Gift Card.


Easy banana bread


The next time you’re at the grocery store, grab a bunch of bananas. They’ll need to ripen for a few days before you make this recipe, but trust me—the wait will be worth it!

This easy banana bread is super moist, lightly sweet, and full of spiced banana flavor. It’s the perfect treat for a chilly February day, especially with a hot cup of coffee or tea alongside it. I like to add walnuts to my loaf for crunch, but you could swap in pecans, raisins, or chocolate chips. Feel free to make it your own!

All three are delicious!

Last Month’s Recipe

Last month’s recipe was my lentil soup. Packed with hearty lentils and fresh veggies, it’s exactly what I want to eat on a cold day. So many of you commented that you feel the same. Cheers to staying warm this winter!

Here are some of your pictures:


















































…and congrats to our winner Emily!
