Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I write about food, motherhood and all that makes up our days.

Lovely Lemon Bars

Lovely Lemon Bars

I adore all things lemon. A simple statement, but one that is true nonetheless. In fact, there are few things truer in the world than my love for lemon, of this I am certain.

Citrus sends me twirling into a zingy dance of delight! Ben can indeed confirm this is true, I do not exaggerate. I often dance as a result of food. While I adore all citrus fruits, lemon is my favourite. And I know I am not alone in this love. There are many lemon lovers out there, which is supremely fortunate, for it has resulted in thousands of delightful recipes to satisfy every lemony craving that may arise.

When Ben and I went out for breakfast last Sunday, I made a lustful connection with a lemon tart in a display cabinet. Alas, this connection took place from afar. I considered a lemon tart for breakfast, but ended up ordering myself some eggs and instead resolved to make my own lemony treat once I was home.

Being the good girl I am, I first made some soup for lunch. Quite literally as soon as my spoon rested in my empty bowl, I jetéd into the kitchen to get started on some lemon bars.

I saw this recipe (link here) many months ago on one of my favourite blogs, eat live run. And when my lemon love took hold, it instantly sprang to mind.

These bars are incredibly simple to make and utterly delicious to taste - don't you just love that? I have made them twice in one week already, once in a loaf pan and the next time in a cake pan - what? We had guests! I needed two batches...

Next time I think I will make Maggie Beer's Sour Cream Pastry for the base, but stick with the lovely, lemon filling of these bars.

I find myself rather hopelessly in love with this recipe. Simple, satisfying, citrus, sublime.
