As a human who enjoys both cooking and eating, I follow a few select food blogs and bloggers on Facebook, Pinterest, etc. My favorite of all of these is Smitten Kitchen (I want to eat all of the things! Go there. You, too, will want to eat them.), but there are a few others that occasionally pop out good recipes. One of these is The Pioneer Woman (Ree Drummond). I was following her before she had her Food Network gig, and have gotten some good recipes and suggestions for things like turkey and mashed potatoes. You know... hearty.. pioneer food... or whatever.
Today, the Pioneer Woman decided to post a recipe that I guarantee no pioneer was cooking out on the trail. A recipe filled with butter and sugar and lemony, gooey goodness: lemon bars.
It is hot. Really hot. Like 90 degrees hot, which I realize is small potatoes for most of the rest of the country, but here in Seattle where no one has A/C because it rarely gets above 75, it is mother-foxtrotting hot as balls.
