Meyer Lemon and Blueberry Bars

Lemon and Blueberry Bar

More Meyer Lemon Madness. I just love these sweet little lemons. I do not, however, love juicing the meyer lemons. Hubs picked me up 10 bags of meyer lemons. I picked up a case of regular lemons. Then I realized I had close to 100 lemons and not enough upper body strength to juice them all. I spent a few days scoping out juicers. I decided not to buy one. Then I came home and looked at my massive pile of lemons.... and I hopped back in my SUV and hightailed it back to the city. I grabbed … [Read more...]

Now here is a cookie any one can make. They are simple, fast and completely off the charts when it comes to flavour. I make a different version of these every year for the holidays.

I knew I would be so happy I saved them so they could add extra coconut goodness to my already fabulous coconut cookies. I was … [Read more...]
