Lemon Bars and Carly Rae Jespen

Just a couple of quick things to share today.

I went to a little gathering last night and brought lemon bars.  But, seeing as how I haven’t quite gotten into the swing of documenting food, I didn’t take a picture!  Trust me, they were pretty and lemony-yellow.

While looking for a recipe I came across Christy’s blog The Girl Who Ate Everything.  She has quite the recipe archives!  The lemon bar recipe was easy and straight forward – the crust included 3 sticks of butter.  Yikes!  So I think that maybe the bars could be re-named Paula Deen Lemon Bars.  They were a hit and got thumb’s up.  The only things I’d tweak the next time around would be to add more lemon juice and possibly experiment with one less stick of butter to have a lighter, less dense, crust.

I don’t have my own “Call me Maybe” video to show you, but do want to share this one with you.  A friend posted it on FB and her step-son is in it–having just returned to the US – this is probably the most unique take on the “Call me Maybe” craze that I’ve seen.

What’s the last thing you cooked/baked that contained a lot of butter?  

If you were going to make a “Call me Maybe” video, what would be your theme?
