So this was supposed to be a witty and informative blog about this awesome "Farmer's Market" cooking class I was taking... but it got canceled.
I mean really I had this whole story about how I signed Mems and I up for the class and she said yes cause she thought I was joking. I asked why she thought it was a joke and she looked at me and said 'because you can't tell the stove from the oven.' She was dead serious.
So I found a delightful last minute replacement... and then the class go canceled. Undaunted I decided to experiment in the kitchen anyway.
I tried this lowfat lemon bar recipe I found on Fitness magazines website: http://www.fitnessmagazine.com/recipes/desserts/low-calorie/low-fat-lemon-bars/
So a quick trip to the store and I got to work in the kitchen.
Mixing and baking the crust... I got my hands dirty and mixed the ingredients and prepped the pan by hand.. then tossed it in the oven while I made the filling.
Then I made the filling and remembered why I hate to cook:
But... I cleaned while the goodies baked... and soon had my counter sufficiently clean... I'm kind of anal about a clean kitchen. Well... really Mems is and she's not nice when she's angry.
Then 20 minutes later the lemon bars were ready to cool... sprinkled with a little powdered sugar... and then tested by me.
Don't they look delightful?
I will now leave you with these two truths... I had more than one bar... and they are orgasmic.
