Julie and Jen will share everyone’s creations on their blogs.
This month's secret ingredient is:
Now you know I love me a lemon!
I even did a tablescape
filled with lemons
I am also not one to walk away from a challenge!
So, I put on my Iron Chef apron, grabbed my Ipad
and went through my Food pinboard
and realized I had found the perfect
lemon recipe to enter with!
I must thank
for sharing this recipe.
It is quick, easy and oh so tasty!
After reading through the comments
I wanted to make sure the instructions
were very clear as some people
can take something so simple and
try to make it difficult.
I won't let that happen to you!
All you need is a box of Angel Food cake mix

No grease. No Flour. Got it?

veering on my own when I cook.
I grated some fresh lemon peel over the mix.
One can not have too much
Place in your preheated oven and bake
until the top is a soft golden brown, about 20 minutes.
Test like your momma taught you, with a toothpick.
While it's still hot from the oven sprinkle
with powdered sugar.
Allow to cool completely and then
cut into bars.
I won it at a giveaway
Bargain Hunting (and chatting) With Laurie)!)
Keep in mind, these have more of a
cake texture than a true lemon bar.
Mr. B loved them!
I caught him several times with
powdered sugar evidence
on his face and hands!
So what do you think?
Do I have a chance at being
