So it’s been a while. I changed schools this past semester and my new dorm’s kitchen was on the basement level with my room on the third floor. My tendency to forget things while running back and forth to the kitchen highly hindered my ability to bake. As in, I didn’t bake for the entire semester. I made fudge once. But that just required the stove top that was in the lounge and the fridge in my room.
Now I’m back at home! This means i have access to the Kitchen Aid and a large stove and wide spice collection and lots of space and everything at my fingertips. Oh how I love being home. I’ve already made my chocolate cupcakes and was just itching to make something else. My mom is having a friend over for wine later so something not quite so bready sounded like a good idea. I looked through my recipes (I think I have 500 something bookmarked) and was between two Smitten Kitchen citrus choices; Deb’s keylime meltaways and her lemon bars. Obviously, if you’ve read the title, I chose the lemon bars.
I don’t know what was up with the lemons today but I could not get any juice out of them. I went through 5 lemons and still only had about 2/3 cup of juice. I tried microwaving them and everything. I have no idea what happened. Oh well the bars are delicious.
