Pucker up and Kiss me!

I must start out today with a BIG THANK YOU to Amy of Familia Bencomo! I posted a comment on her Haggen Dasz ice cream giveaway and I won! I’m so excited and can’t wait to get the ice cream!

I love lemon. I love lemon meringue pie, lemon swirled cheesecake, and lemonade – but I especially love a really yummy, perfectly baked lemon bar! (Yes, I do love savory dishes with lemon also, but that is another post!)

Grumpy has a question that bugs me to death – especially when my answer is “nothing”. Chris asked me the same question last week…”what’s for dessert?” I don’t serve dessert on a regular basis. Mostly because we don’t “need” dessert. And other times because I can have dessert and then nobody is in the mood for it! Go figure. Anyway, I decided the other night that we would have dessert and since I had two lemon’s in the fridge, what better thing to make than a lemon bar? I went onto the Joy of Baking website and pulled the recipe for lemon bars from there. I followed the recipe to a T. For the recipe, click here.

Chris and I enjoyed a lemon bar after dinner. Grumpy waited a little bit but…after he got into them – well, when I peeked under the cover I realized more than half of the dish was empty! Must be he enjoyed them himself! I know this is the best lemon bar recipe I have ever made. Turned out perfectly and I love how the bar looks inside…..yummmy delicious lemonness!

    Thank you, sweetie, for mentioning me! These lemon bars are right up my alley since my neighbor gives me a full bag of lemon every week from her tree. I’m always looking for another lemon recipe. Thank you for sharing.

    I love lemon bars- they are amongst my fave desserts. I don’t make them much, because then I’d eat my weight in them! Lol. I’ll have to check out your recipe.
