I have read so many yummy looking posts about V*con's Lemon Bars, but never really gave them a second thought. Mostly because I am more of the peanut butter cookie or oatmeal granola bar kind of treatie loving girl. I never really fancied things like lemon meringue or baked alaskas - they always were a little too sweet and pretty for me.
Yesterday was a dish-rag of a day - I was cranky pretty much the WHOLE day. Just one of those, I don't know what I want, but I know I don't want anything you are suggesting kind of days. Blah. But, around 4 in the afternoon, I was inspired by this crank of a day to do something new in the kitchen, and.....tahdah! I made the most yummiest desert I have had in AGES.
Seriously, these little lemon bars are to die for. Even Kevin who is the biggest cake fan on the planet, loves them. The colour is intense and it gave me a chance to fall back in love with agar.
Now everyone out there - grab your copy of V*con and get baking!
Oh, I also had such a busy week at work that I didn't get a chance to post my Barley and Bean Soup. The recipe is one that I would make again, though, the park down my street is currently calling my name and demanding that I go for a constitutional (who doesn't love that word?). The soup was super great, had it for dinner, for lunch and then for dinner again! Num Num.
