And I know that when Meyers are in season you can find them at Nino Salvaggio's in the Detroit area.

Since Meyer lemons are a mix of lemon and orange: if you wanted a lemony orange slightly flavor I would use one small orange to the remaining lemons in a recipe. I have a Meyer lemon tree! They aren't quite as sour as traditional lemons.

They're a little out of season here. Even the wal-mart has them in Jan-Feb.
But, I have seen Persian lemons in Middle Eastern stores which have basically the flavor profile as Meyer (if not the exact same thing).

This recipe does not specify Meyer lemons, just organic ones. So yes, you can use regular lemons.
