Rainy Sunday Lemon Bars

   Yes I realize there is a spelling mistake in "Rainny" which should be "Rainy". A silly mistake but I can't change it now.

   It's been awhile since I last baked something. With the sudden few weeks of slightly unbearable heat my husband and I have been trying to avoid cooking in the kitchen. Yet yesterday we had relief with a short but wonderful rain fall that seemed to wipe away the muggy air and cool down our main floor quickly. Perfect time for pulling out a recipe book and baking up some classic Lemon Bars.
   I think one of my problems is that I often look too much on food blogs and sites like Pinterest that have endless inspiration for creative and unique foods. It's easy for me to get caught up in creating fancy and beautiful dishes forgetting about some of those staple sweets I grew up on. Lemon Bars were everywhere when I was a kid but along the years I seemed to have forgotten about their simple sweetness. Yesterday I started to crave them and figured it was time to attempt my first batch.
   Surprisingly they didn't take long to whip up and the end result was delightful throw back to my childhood. I'd share the recipe but honestly you can find this classic everywhere online. Each recipe varies but if you're interested here's a quick one I found online, Lemon Bars.
   Clearly I'm not a food blogger.  I placed a flower on top of the bar out of sheer spite that this was a silly looking photo.

Are these good? Because I've tried at least 3 recipes for lemon abrs and none of them was ok - I'm desperate for a good one because I loove lemon pastry!

I'm not a food blogger either, but when I do make something sweet or really yummy, I try and share! I'm always looking for something new and easy to try...Thanks for this! -Jessica
