*cue the sound of crickets chirping*

Seriously, 3 months? wowza. That is ridiculous. I am el lame-o.

To lure you back I have a recipe that is so simple & so sinful. And it takes butter. TWO sticks. Go ahead, think about that.
And 2 CUPS of sugar. And FOUR eggs.

And it is ALL kinds of worth it.
That is, if you like lemon.
It's my husband's momma's recipe. Not sure where it came from, but it is a perfect mix of sweet and tangy and springtime awesomeness.

Lemon Pie Bars

crust: 1 3/4 cup flour, 2 sticks softened butter, 1/3 cup powdered sugar.
mix until crumbly and press in 9x13 pan. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes. remove & cool.

mix: 4 eggs, 2 cups sugar, 1/3 cup lemon juice, dash of salt. mix until sugar is blended and add 1/4 cup flour, 1/2 tsp. baking powder. blend together.

pour over crust and bake 25 min. cool completely. sprinkle with powdered sugar.

now eat. and eat. and think about taking some to a friend. and then eat the rest. and then let me know what you think.

I actually have been blogging, just not here. A time or two a month on the October Afternoon blog.

See...I do still scrapbook.

Since January life has truly been one trial after another with our family. It has added lots of stress and subtracted lots of time. But..God is good and getting us through it all.

It's nice to be back :)
