Lemony Lemon Bars

I have always loved lemon bars. They are great anytime of the year. Here is a quick recipe from a friend of mine. (I added shredded lemon peel to the recipe to give it more lemon flavor)

Lemon Bars
For the crust add:
1 c. butter

6 T. lemon juice

spread over baked crust and bake for an additional 25 minutes or so until golden on top. Bake at 350. Sprinkle powdered sugar on top.


Banana Pudding Bread

This bread turned out extremely great. The pudding adds extra moistness to the bread and the tastes of banana, vanilla pudding, brown sugar and cinnamon combined, give this bread extra great flavor. My adorable other half made this fabulous bread. He makes great breads and he knows just what spices to add. He totally made up this bread and we both thought banana pudding bread suited it best.
