  1. I haven't used it in a few years but my late MIL and then all the rest of us made a crab "spread," not a dip. Take a can of crab, squeeze it as dry as you can in your hands, add lemon pepper, chopped scallions and just enough mayo hold it together. As I said, it's a spread, not a dip. Super simple but everyone loved it. I just kinda burned out on it so haven't made it in ages.

    1. Rotisserie chickens. Not my idea, I buy them that way. I had part of one for lunch today.

        1. It's good on corn on the cob.

          1. My fav dinner is Lemon-Pepper Pork Chops, get the thick cut chops, use LP sparingly and leave on for an hour or up to 4 hours. You will grill the chops for best flavor but they can be pan sauteed as well. I like to serve it with yellow rice (saffron rice) and either green beans or sauteed zuchinni (sliced zuchinni with LP on it also). A big green salad is also nice with some garlic bread or cheese biscuits.

                    The plan is roasted asparagus tonight. We usually sprinkle Parmesan with olive oil, salt and pepper but maybe I'll try the lemon pepper.

                2. I use it for roasted vegetables...drizzle EVO, sea salt, lemon pepper.

                  Fresh fish and when doing app's of triscuits with cream cheese with halved heirloom tomt's and I will spritz some lemon and lemon pepper.

                  1. In a (non-authentic) bloody Mary: tomato juice, lemon pepper, Worcestershire, hot sauce, celery flakes. Oh, and a splash of vodka if it's not a school night.
