Creamy Lemon Bars

Thursday, August 4, 2022
Creamy Lemon Bars recipe with a buttery shortbread almond crust in a 9"x13" pan is an easy to make family favorite dessert.

A 9x13 Pan of Creamy Lemon Bars cut into squares and dusted with powdered sugar on a piece of parchment paper. 2 Lemon Bars removed from the top left corner and 3 lemon halves are placed facing up in it's place.



I made these Lemon Bars awhile ago and delayed posting...

Why you ask? 

Well you see before I could even dust them with powdered a piece was cut into and then two pieces went missing the minute they were removed from the pan.

I don't have a clue who would have done this...I mean there is no way I cut into my own lemon bars to taste test them and ate 1 1/2 bars only sharing a large bite with Colt who I had to shout at for taking too large of a bite..Gheesh men!

So I snapped a picture and then set a few aside to take a picture the next day, but the next day for the lemon bars would never come. It definitely wasn't because Colt and I had a late night snack of Creamy Lemon Bars in bed while the kids were asleep, no that would never happen in our house.. That would be bad very bad..

They must have been eaten by the dog when no one was looking, right?

Where else would they go?

So I thought I would remake them since they survived less the 12 hours in our house but that day hasn't arrived yet. So I threw in the towel and decided you get what you get and you don't throw a fit. 
These are amazing and even loved by my non lemon loving husband!

Brown Butter Brookies are an amazingly delicious cookie bar recipe. Homemade Brookies from scratch are made when chocolate chip cookies and brownies collide into one amazingly delicious bar.

Brookies are always a favorite to bring to parties, picnics, potlucks, and barbecues. 

Brown Butter Brookies sliced and stacked 3 high on a brown wooden board with a brown background.


Brown Butter Brookies  are my all time favorite treat.


Who can resists Brownies or a Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies?


Not I, especially when brown butter is involved.


If you're feeling really naughty go ahead and add a big scoop of  Vanilla Ice Cream.. 


I promise I won't tell, actually I did it myself and oh boy was it worth every last bite..


My friend Lisa requests this anytime we have dinner at their house, it's her favorite too..
For very good reasons..


I adapted this recipe from my Ultimate Brookies  post and used The Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookies with the brown butter.


Here's how to make these delicious Brown Butter Brookies:

French Dip Sandwiches In Crock Pot

Thursday, July 21, 2022
French Dip Sandwiches in the Crock Pot are easy to make! I provide two variations one that includes browning the meat and sautéing the onions and one for when you're crunched for time and toss everything in the slow cooker.

Tender melt in your mouth chuck roast, onions and pepperoncinis makes these so flavorful with a delicious au jus for dipping.

Since it's throw back Thursday I thought it's a great time to revisit a family favorite! Spicy Crock Pot French Dips.

When I made Spicy Crock Pot French Dips this time I thought I would try to make them without all the fussy pre browning and caramelizing because sometimes life calls for easy and right now my life needs simplicity.

We tossed everything in the Crock Pot before church a few Sunday's back and I was so thankful I had nothing else to worry about the rest of the day! 

I'm happy to say the roast was amazingly delicious without all the fuss of pre-browning.

So either way you make it, it's a winner.

Spicy Crock Pot French Dips are super easy to make and perfect for any parties you might be hosting or just an easy fix it and forget it meal for a busy weeknight!
