Lemon Bars


2 c. flour
1/2 c. powdered sugar
1 c. melted butter

Mix dry ingredients, then add melted butter. Mix thoroughly then spread in a 9×13 pan and bake at 325 for about 20 minutes.


4 eggs
1/3 c. fresh lemon juice (or not fresh if your mother says she’s not going to make a trip to the grocery store at dinnertime for just a lemon)
2 c. sugar
1/4 c. flour
1/2 tsp baking powder

Beat the eggs and lemon juice and sugar. Add the flour and baking powder, then pour over the bottom and bake at 325 for 20-25 minutes. Sprinkle with powdered sugar, then cool before cutting.


Carole in DE (and her son MK)’s Chocolate Chip Muffins

Here’s the recipe:
Preheat oven to 375
Into bowl mix:
2 eggs
1-1/4 c sugar (too much is OK, and I just use the 1 cup measurer for everything)
1/4 c oil
3/4 c milk
Mix it so the sugar dissolves then add:
2 heaping cups flour.
4tsp baking powder

Mix again and pour in 1 cup chocolate chips, or 1 cup blueberries. If the mixture is really runny then you need to be more heaping with your flour. Add some more flour in. Grease 18 muffin tins, (I just spray them with PAM), fill each tin 2/3 of the way to the top, and pop them in the oven for about 18 minutes.

I guarantee that these will be on the breakfast table at our home on this Monday, our first day back to doing school full-time.

Oh, and if you have a chocolate-lover-kid like MK put a Hershey Kiss into the muffin instead of chocolate chips. Those are great too.
