This LA Weekly Flickr pool photo comes to you from photographer averagebetty. It's a gorgeous shot posted as a Mother's Day tribute to her mother. Or rather, her mother's lemon bar recipe. Also cool because it's the peak of lemon season at our markets (Meyers, Eurekas, name your favorite citrus) and because the bars are shaped like houses. (We've seen similar cookie cutters at Sur La Table, and confess to having a whole planned community of them in a drawer somewhere.) Here too, thanks to the miracle of blogging, is the recipe.

And, of course, if you have any brilliant shots of food you've taken around town recently, you might consider uploading them on our Flickr pool. Never know where they might show up.

It is not.
