January 28, 2013 in bars
I’m giving away a copy of Carla Hall’s Cooking with Love – make sure you enter! (And did you see that Carla actually commented on that post?! Crazy!)
This is the first year I’ve gotten my hands on meyer lemons. The past couple years I’ve seen them at the store and said, “I’m gonna go right home, find a recipe, and then come back for these!” And then by the time I make it back to the store, they’re gone. The season is just so short! So this year I snatched a bag up as soon as I spotted them.
My husband loves lemon bars and even though he’s doing the Paleo thing, I knew he’d cheat for them. So obviously I made some. Because I live to sabotage his diet. You really can’t go wrong with lemon bars. Sweet and tart all at once with a shortbread crust. I mean, there’s nothing I don’t like about them. If you can find meyer lemons, I definitely suggest trying them out in bars. (I was at the store yesterday and saw them so I’m hoping you will still be able to find them too.)
