My lavish partner Lisa has 2 of the most
wonderful lemon trees in her backyard.
YES, lemons grow very well here
in the desert ... who knew!
So when she delivered me a bag-full ...
well, ...when life hands you lemons,
make lemon bars of course!
This is one of my favorite recipes!
Made with a full cup of lemon juice
& several tablespoons of zest...
sweet . tart . delicious
(makes approximately 20 bars)
. for the crust .
2 sticks unsalted room temperature butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 cups all purpose-flour
1/8 tsp salt
* cream the butter & sugar in the bowl of
an electric mixer fitted with a paddle
until light & creamy
* combine the flour & salt with the mixer on low
into the creamy butter & sugar
* place the dough right onto a 9x12 pan
(no need to grease pan as the
buttery dough will do the trick)
* pat your hands with a bit of flour
to keep from sticking to the dough as you
pat down into your baking pan
* chill dough for 15 minutes
* pre-heat oven to 350
* Bake for 15-20 minutes
(until lightly brown) - let cool
. for the filling .
(keep oven on at 350)
6 large eggs at room temperature
3 cups granulated sugar
2 Tbs lemon zest (4-6 lemons)
1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 cup all-purpose flour
Confectioners' sugar for dusting
* whisk eggs, sugar, lemon zest,
lemon juice & flour
* pour over the cooled crust
* Bake for 30-35 minutes
until the filling is set
* let cool to room temperature
* dust with Confectioners' sugar
PUCKER-UP & ENJOY!

Avocado-Toast ~ an appetizer to LOVE! ...from the Lavish kitchen
For most of us... dinner with friends usually means heading out to a restaurant. Although my husband Tim & I love to discover new eateries or frequent our favorites, we try to host meals in our home...
In my kitchen with the LOVETTS ... today's menu: Andy's "Award-winning" Vegan Chili
No matter how small or big your home is, it seems everyone's favorite place to gather is the kitchen! So on that note, my husband Tim & I designed our new home around a large kitchen! We both love to cook ... but even more, we LOVE friends who cook!!
