Lemon Squares

May 24, 2012

Yay! So, how does it look? We here at Table for 7 got a bit of makeover courtesy of Jenn at Munchkin Land Designs.  I really love it. She did a great job.  So, if you are looking for a little makeover, big makeover or just a few things here and there on your blog..head over and see her. She does great work, is soooo easy to work with (even for OCD crazy people like myself) and her prices won't break your bank.

OK..other stuff..It's official...we are on summer break! This school year has actually gone by rather quickly.  Let's hope that summer goes by a little slower. Well, not too slow, with the new baby coming at the end of summer, I am a bit anxious about August...for baby, not school starting back up.
With summer, comes alot of fruit around here. This is included in our desserts.  These lemon squares are really awesome and it's not too much overkill on the lemon flavor. Put them on your list of summer desserts.

  1. Tried to make these...they didn't turn out. Maybe you are forgetting sugar in the filling? It is like eating lemon flavored hard cooked eggs!
