Lemons!

Pin It Now!

What do you do with all these lemons? Just kidding, those are fake!
I did make some lemon bars with real lemons and they were good! I used Ina Garten's (The Barefoot Contessa) recipe.

Lemons, butter, sugar, fresh eggs and flour...


turns into a yummy treat...and made my coworkers very happy! The recipe is on the Food Network website...just click here! Hers look a lot better than mine do though!

You had me fooled! Those lemons look so real. Your lemon bars look wonderful and made my mouth water too. Lemon Bars are one of all-time favorites. ♥

I love lemon squares. I often make them for church suppers or pot lucks -- not so much for my guests either!!

Just the sight of a bowl of lemons is so cheery--I always try to keep some around (some real, some fake!). These lemon bars look really good right now. YUM! Love the Barefoot Contessa. :-)

Aren't her lemon bars fabulous? SO GOOD! I just had her chocolate dipped pecan bars that a friend made for our chocolate tasting. OH MY! Give those a try sometime. Fantastic. BTW, your blue cups in your sugar & flour jars looks great. I use one in my jar of laundry detergent too. ;-) Great minds. . .

Looking at your lemon bars is making my mouth water!! I have been making lemon bars for years, but I call them Lemon Pie Bars because each bite reminds me of a piece of lemon pie!! The recipe I use calls for 4 eggs, but thanks for sharing Ina's recipe, I will have to try it!! (It's always fun to watch her cook on her tv show, she has such a friendly and charming personality (along with her husband!!) and the food always looks good, plus I love seeing her kitchen,table setting, etc.

For the last month everyone in here Scottsdale has been inundated with lemons if you dont have a tree someone you know has plenty to give.
Try Tyler Florences Lemon pudding cake...that great recipe!!!!!

We share a love of blue and white dishes and now lemons. That is my kitchen theme and I love to make lemon bars. Haven't tried that recipe though. They look yummy.
