Sometimes you just need an old fashioned lemon bar......packed with a bright,sweet lemon flavor....
so I made half a batch.
I think my favorite part is the shortbread type crust...so rich and buttery. They just melt in your mouth!
1 c. butter
2 c. flour
1/2 c. powdered sugar
Mix together as for pie crust. Pack well in the bottom of a 9 x 13 glass pan. Bake 20 minutes at 350.
While baking the crust mix:
2 c. sugar
6 Tbsp. lemon juice
4 Tbsp. flour
pinch of salt
1 tsp. baking powder
grated rind of 1 lemon, optional
Pour on top of hot crust and bake another 20-25 minutes at 350. Remove and cool. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Here's another fun Halloween treat to make!
All you need is a bag of Oreo's, a can of frosting, a bag of Hershey Kisses and some sprinkles.
I added some orange food color and some green food color to the frosting, then spread a bit on top of the Oreo's. Then I plopped a kiss on top and sprinkled away!
The hardest part was opening up all the kisses..LOL!
Have a great day everyone!

Don't these look fun?
Of course I saw them on Pinterest again, so I pinned it tried it, and LOVED it!
They were super easy, just dipping the pretzels in chocolate and adding some candy eyes. I suppose they would look more like ghosts if I had used white chocolate.
But you know me, I LOVE dark chocolate!

It's fall....time for some pumpkin recipes!
I love to keep this Fall Pumpkin Bread in my freezer. It's so nice to have on hand, and it freezes so well. We like to have a few slices for breakfast on weekends.
I usually make 2 smaller loaves instead of a large one, then I can make each one a bit different. For the one pictured here, I added some dried cranberries and walnuts. The one I froze has lots of chopped pecans. Another favorite add in is chocolate chips.
Whatever I add in, it's always moist and delicious!
Fall Pumpkin Bread
1 1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. oil
1/3 c. water
1 cup pumpkin
1 3/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/4 tsp. ginger
1 tsp. baking soda
Cream the sugar and eggs. Stir in the oil, water and pumpkin. In a separate bowl, mix the dry ingredients. Combine and mix well. Pour into a well greased loaf pan and bake 60 to 70 minutes at 350 until a toothpick comes out clean. I cover the loaf with foil half way at 50 minutes and check every 5 or 10 minutes after that.
