Giant Pumpkin Cookie Cake or Pizza

Wow, it finally feels like fall around here. Not only is it cool and pleasant, it’s been raining cats and dogs! This is what it’s like to have seasons. After last year’s endless summer, I’d almost given up. Anyway, I was in the mood to celebrate with an autumn themed chocolate chip cookie cake (aka […]

Nancy’s Divine Lemon Bars

Divine Lemon Bars

Sometimes the best recipes result from accidents, and that’s exactly what happened with these Lemon Bars. Nancy at Tag Sale Tastes volunteered to make lemon bars for a church luncheon, and realized she didn’t have enough granulated sugar. Rather than stop everything and run to the store, she substituted powdered sugar and crossed her fingers. […]

Today was a lemon bar kind of day, but I didn’t want to make the usual type and was glad to stumble across this recipe. Unlike typical lemon bars, this one has a streusel topping.

In fact, I may never make lemon squares without fancy butter. The topping was a little stiff due to the […]

I was hoping to go to Central Market this morning, but got bogged down with Monday chores and couldn’t leave the house. Luckily, I had all the ingredients for making what might be the best lemon squares ever…or at least that I’ve ever made. For the original 13×9 inch pan recipe (and its source) click […]

Creamy Lemon Blueberry Bars

Creamy Lemon Blueberry Bars

Today’s recipe was inspired by The Leavening Agent who posted a great photo of a blueberry bar. She didn’t include the recipe, so I checked a few bulletin boards and found the original version which was originally published in Fine Cooking Magazine. It had mixed reviews and some specific criticisms including “too much crust, not […]

The first is a vegan lemon square, the second is a modified version of a Family Circle magazine recipe which incorporated cream cheese. First off, the vegan lemon squares. This recipe is from Vegweb and a lot of […]
