Lemon Bars

Sweet, slightly tart filling is baked over a buttery shortbread crust.





This is another recipe Mom would whip up for Christmas. I don't know how many times my siblings and I snuck down stairs, to eat them right out of the freezer, LOL. They are better thawed, but when you love something so much, who can wait until Christmas Eve??


These are really delicious. Slightly sweet, with a nice tart filling. The crust is flaky, the filling gooey. What's not to love???




Lemon Bars


Crust:

2 C flour

1/2 C powdered sugar

1 C margarine


Filling:

4 eggs

2 C sugar

1/3 C lemon juice

1 tsp lemon zest

1/4 C flour

1/2 tsp baking powder


For Crust: Combine 2 C flour, with powdered sugar. Cut in margarine, until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Press into an 8x13 inch baking dish and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, until edges begin to brown slightly.


For Filling: Beat eggs with sugar, lemon zest and juice, flour and baking powder, until thoroughly combined.


Once crust has baked for 20-25 minutes, pour filling over crust and return to the oven, for 25 minutes longer, or until filling is set. Remove from oven and sprinkle with additional powdered sugar. Cool completely, before cutting into bars.

I originally saw this recipe on Pinterest (via Six Sister's Stuff) and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work! 
I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer.



When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right??





This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.

Wondering how to spend Halloween this year, due to the pandemic? Well I have 8 fun and delicious ways to make an at home Halloween, tons of fun!



2020 has been turned upside down. My kids have not seen friends, or the inside of a school since March. While we do have our social bubble, this bubble consists of family and a few select friends. Being someone who could be vulnerable during these crazy times, I have been trying to make every day life as normal as possible. With Halloween fast approaching, I have been thinking of how to make sure my children have a super fun day, but not put our bubble at risk. It would be much easier if my health was 100%, but we will make the best of our Halloween at home.

Even though my health isn't the greatest, we haven't been living like hermits. We don our masks, bring hand sanitizer and make sure to social distance. So a trip to our local pumpkin patch, to pick our pumpkins, is one way we will be bringing a bit of n…
