Love & Lemons Cooking Club – January!

New month, new cooking club challenge! Read on to see this month's recipe and to check out all your mouthwatering photos from December.

Soba noodles

For us, last month’s Cooking Club recipes really hit the spot! In December, we saw snow, sleet, and gloomy day after gloomy day. We pretty much craved baked ziti and lasagna all month long. Judging from your photos, it looks like you did too!

Our December winner was Susan St-Pierre, but if you scroll to the bottom of this post, you can see all your Cooking Club submissions. They look delicious! And now, for January’s recipe…

January’s Recipe: Easy Sesame Soba Noodles

Cooking Club

I think you’re going to love this recipe. A fresh, tangy, sesame dressing coats nutty soba noodles, creamy avocado, and tons of crisp veggies. Make it for a quick, easy dinner, or pack it up for lunch!
