What does "1/4 lemon juice" mean? 1/4 cup, 1/4 lemon or 1/4 teaspoon?

I just made these....and they were amazing!! My boyfriend and my butter loving mom loved them!! I was a little disappointed mine didn't brown, but the taste made up for it. I followed the recipe but then added pepper, onions, and dill. I think the dill was a good touch. This will forever be a staple in my home!!

These are FANTASTIC!  I added chickpeas and onion as per some other reviewers suggestions, and added rosemary.  While these were great like that, next time I will add a bit more lemon juice and a bit less oil. I served it with some steamed brussel sprouts, but as well as everything went together, I will probably just throw everything in the pan to bake together next time.  This is certainly a keeper! ;)b

I was having trouble with my roasted potatoes and felt like they just werent as good as other peoples and then I found this recipe. The secret must be baking them in a dish rather than on a baking sheet. If your using fresh lemon juice I recommend using two lemons as I wanted my potatoes a little more lemony, but really this is an amazing recipe!

I added the chickpeas per the suggestion of Julls (archived comment) and it was very tasty!! Great recipe. I might add extra lemon and garlic, but that's just for my own taste. If your oven isn't browning fast enough, add an extra 25 degrees about halfway through. :)
