    Dianne – I am a lemon lady – lemon curd, lemon drizzle cake and even a garlicky chicken in lemon sauce! Now I am hungry all over again.

    These bars sound really delightful. I, too, love lemon. And just happen to notice that my neighbors lemon tree, with branches in my yard, is full of nice green lemons. As soon as they ripen… 🙂
