These peanut butter bars have a hint of graham crackers, fudgy center and are sprinkled with mini marshmallows!  A S’mores flavored dessert! When our kids were given iPods as gifts, it was with the understanding that we would monitor everything they did.  Our oldest kids are 10 and 9 and 5 and are quite naive and innocent.  However, I wanted to establish the house rule now that mom is always watching. Recently the kids have discovered the … Continue reading →

S’mores Oatmeal Cream Pies

A S’mores twist on a classic childhood treat! www.lemonsforlulu.com

A S’mores twist on a childhood favorite! I can vividly recall the first time I tried S’mores.  I was in the 4th grade and it was during the last week of school.  Our science teacher brought in all the fixins for s’more along with foil and plates.  We sat along a rolling hill on one side of the school.  We assembled our s’mores (leaving the top cracker off) and let the sun reflect off our foil lined plates and onto our individual milk chocolate … Continue reading →

Tart lemon curd and creamy mascarpone cheese are tucked inside grilled pound cake for a dessert grilled cheese! I’ve had a baking freeze after our vacation.  It wasn’t really intentional, I just haven’t found the time.  Between baseball, tennis lessons, day camps and summer parties, I find I barely have time to cook let alone bake!  It’s giving me the shakes.  I think I’m going through baking withdrawal. I am so desperate for homemade … Continue reading →

Key Lime Sugar Cookies

Mini frosted sugar cookies made with fresh key limes www.lemonsforlulu.com

These key lime sugar cookies are tangy and sweet!  The soft and tender sugar cookie and the creamy frosting make a delicious bite sized key lime treat!   I’m not a huge fan of pie.  A good berry pie certainly has a place in my heart, but to be frank, I tend to snub my nose at any other flavor of pie.  I just do not gravitate towards cake’s flakey cousin.  Pie is a second rate dessert in my humble opinion.  It’s good in a pinch but … Continue reading →

A tender coffee cake with lots of fresh blueberries and the most perfect coconut streusel!   I don’t remember how old I was when I first learned to ride a bike.  I do remember my dad teaching me at the baseball fields at school.  I can even remember the moment he let go and I realized I was going it alone.  The strange thing is, I never really learned how to break to stop the bike.  That information is quite embarrassing and I’m not … Continue reading →
