Welcome to PB and Joy...trying to spread some joy onto motherhood. I am a stay at home mom with a wonderful husband and 4 beautiful kids...Kaylee (9), Aaron (7), Nathan (3), and Travis (1).
I am also a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints (LDS, or Mormon). My family and my faith are the most important things in my life.
When life gives you lemons, make something delicious! These are two lemon recipes that I have recently tried and my family loved them.
Creamy Lemon-Lime Jello recipe from Sweet Basil 1 large box lime jell-o 1 large box lemon pudding, cook style
(You can also make this with 1 small box of the jell-o and pudding for a smaller serving)
Make the jell-o using the speed set method. Cook the pudding according to its directions - omitting the eggs. Pour the pudding into the jell-o and mix. Pour into a 9x13 pan and let set for about 5 hours. Delicious, Creamy, and a little Tart...Yum! Enjoy!
Lemon Bars recipe from The Essential Mormon Cookbook
2 cups flour
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 cup butter
4 beaten eggs
2 cups sugar
1/3 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
Sift together the 2 cups flour and powdered sugar. Cut in butter with a fork or pastry blender until mixture clings together. Press into an 11x7 inch pan. Bake at 350 for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Beat together eggs, sugar, and lemon juice. Add the 1/4 cup flour and baking powder. Pour over baked crust. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes longer. Sprinkle with additional powdered sugar. Cool. Cut into bars.
