Recipes for Twelve Mandarins

So even though I used all twelve lemons I had, I’ve decided to do another round of citrus recipes. It’s fun, and I like that it challenges me to find new things to cook! To help me find new recipes, I’ve started using Foodily, which is an AWESOME site, you should totally check it out!

23 Mandarin Oranges

(I know there are more than 12 in the bowl, but unlike lemons, these are going to get eaten.)
