Got your attention? I know YUM!!! Lemon•Citrus•Love!
I hope you like lemons cause you’re fixing’ to see a lot of that in this post. A recipe for some delicious, creamy, tangy lemon bars!
One of the girlfriends brought us these wonderful & huge lemons from her garden. So what else do you do aside of using them for your tea? Lots of baking!
Typically you think summer when you think of lemons. I think refreshing, citrus, love, and migraines!
See, this Valley girl grew up around citrus and enjoying it all the time during my childhood, but later found that I had migraines so often because I was/am allergic to citric acid. Imagine the sadness of that.
Over the years I’ve rationed myself to small doses of anything citrus-y but never lemon bars, due to the high content of citric acid in ’em. I do sometimes sacrifice myself to migraines to enjoy something citrus-y though. Such was the case here.
After juicing all the beautiful lemons, and my daughter convincing me to make lemon curd, and I needing to make a birthday treat for my nieces celebration, well…I decided to try making lemon bars—first time ever—virgin lemon bar baking going on! Visit on link here for the original RECIPE. The taste didn’t disappoint, I just wish they could’ve congealed a bit more, (and I even halved the oil called for). But the curd —OH MAN—-was super delicious and easy and overall these were FANTASTIC!
Jacq’s birthday celebration was fun, and I think the lemon bars were a hit!
I still have lots of lemon juice reserved for later use and I’m pretty sure I will share my story! Thank you dear Laura for your friendship lemons ~
