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.

Nice new layout! Glad Grumpy liked the lemon bars.

Your lemon bars look great! Lemon is one of my favorite desert flavours though I have yet to try making lemon bars.

you should try the slammin' citrus squares in my blog - they're like a fancy grown up lemon bar :)
