“Since having a Pina Colada for breakfast is frowned upon, I threw together this delicious variation with some tangy Orange Syrup to go with it. If I had any pineapple in the house I would have made Pineapple Syrup instead! Family quite enjoyed it!” - Teresa

Melt in Your Mouth Orange-Yogurt Pancakes

“These pancakes are so simple and really do melt in your mouth! You have to use full fat yogurt though! Don't use the Greek stuff!! (It's too concentrated) Without the orange gratings the orange flavor is really delicate and subtle. If you want it to pop more I recommend using the gratings.” - Lindsey

Orange French Toast with Pecan Sauce

“If you are really in the mood to completely blow your diet (as I was last weekend), this is the way to do it! Bright, citrus flavors mixed with caramel and bourbon. This decadent breakfast is perfect for the holidays. Don't substitute another bread - it's worth it to use challah or brioche. The texture and taste will win you over.” - David

Orange Lemonade

20 Minute Light Orange Chicken

“Normally takeout orange chicken is battered and fried in a lot of oil but I prefer this lighter and healthier version where the chicken is simply sauteed and then tossed in a super tasty orange sauce! One of the best things about this recipe is that it takes less time to make than it takes to steam the rice, less than 20 minutes!” - Kevin

Blackened Shrimp Salad with Roasted Oranges

“Wow, is this a flavorful and very aromatic salad. Between the aroma of the blackened shrimp and those roasted oranges the kitchen smelled delicious!!! I couldn't wait to get a bite of this salad.

Crock Pot Citrus Chicken

“I made this last night and had leftovers tonight. It was wonderful. The first night I had noodles with it and tonight I had it over rice. I used boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into strips. Such good fresh taste with the lemon and orange juice. Hubby said it is a keeper. Don't worry about it being too acidic because it is mild but great tasting.” - Connie

Grilled Chicken a L' Orange

“Made this tonight and really enjoyed it! The marinade was great! I made it with fresh Valencia orange juice. I got the sauce a bit too thick and used low sodium chicken broth to thin it. The sauce was good although the chicken itself is so good that I didn't really need the sauce. However, I think I'll serve the chicken with rice next time and so the sauce will be a nice addition.” - Melanie

Scratch-made Orange Zest Pound Cake with Orange Curd

A beginner cook can make this and impress everyone.” - Kitchen Crew

Pineapple-Orange Sunshine Cake

“This citrus cake is cool and fluffy! It's a lightened up version of a cake that was popular in the 1980's. The mandarin oranges are blended into the fluffy sponge-like cake. Then, it's frosted with Cool Whip mixed with vanilla pudding and crushed pineapples. The flavors give the cake a very tropical feel. Serve this cake cold straight from the fridge. It's a nice cool treat for a hot day.” - Kitchen Crew

My family just can't have any celebration without this cake!” - Donna
