In months filled with root vegetables and soups of beans and lentils, it's nice to know you can depend on the seasonal citrus surge. When it's too cold or gray to think about going outside, Meyer lemons, blood oranges, and grapefruit will brighten your winter day. Sweet and sour, citrus perks up any recipe.

From sweet recipes, like gorgeous lemon sticky rolls and cookies with candied orange, to savory recipes, like a mascarpone-lemon spaghetti and orange-roasted carrots, here are over 20 ways to bring citrus into your home this week.

This month's Instagram theme for The Kitchn is beautiful citrus, and I've personally been so inspired by all the delicious creations readers have been posting. The bright pinks, yellows, oranges, reds, and even limes are just too pretty not to take a photo of and show to everyone.
