  1. This is a different recipe from the traditional lemon bar w/ lemon curd. This sounds incredibly decadent and delicious.

  2. These really look good! I always like lemon desserts because they don't seem as heavy as some desserts. Maybe it's the citrus flavor. Bach makes a great lemon cake and serves it with green grapes on the side. Makes for a pretty presentation. We will have to try your lemon bars. They would be good with orange or tea.

  3. Yum, Cat...and that does sound like a pretty presentation. I'm all about the presentation...unless I'm home alone, and then I pick them up and stuff them in my mouth while standing over the kitchen sink. LOL! (shhh!)

  4. You are always making me hungry. I do wish that yummy desserts were as good for the body as vegetables. They're so much more fun to cook.
