When Work Gives You Lemons, Make Lemon Bars

Happy October!!! Fall is here and it’s one of my favorite seasons- it’s not super hot or super cold and it’s my birthday season! Whooot whoot!!

So what do I have in store for you today?? Lemon bars!!!! So basically, my work place provides a fully stock kitchen- snacks for daysss. They also provide fruit but recently, they’ve been giving us a lot more lemons and limes than fruit that you would actually eat like bananas or apples. Since some of the lemons were going bad, I decided to take some of the good lemons home and make lemon bars to bring back to work for everyone to eat.

My friend actually made lemon bars first and since she said it came out delicious, I decided to use the recipe she followed. Tada~


They weren’t difficult to make but it was a journey… Let me tell you…
First off, I had to go to the supermarket 3 times because I was missing ingredients that I thought I already had at home or there wasn’t enough for me to use. That was pretty annoying but it was probably my fault for not double checking.

Secondly, I am using my toaster oven to bake this and I didn’t have a baking pan they used so I had to make my own pan using aluminum foil.

Hm.. I guess those were the only struggles I actually had. I was a bit worried about the crust because when I was getting mixed, it felt too soft to actually harden after baking but it turned out fine.

To be honest, I didn’t try my lemon bars really- I ate the pieces around the edge but am not sure how the ones in the middle tasted.

My coworkers loved it though (well, at least from what they told me…lolol), they ate them all before lunch- I was surprised they went so fast! Even with four lemons though one of my coworkers thought they were too sweet. I’m going to try to bake more for them cause I love them all. ❤

Like I mentioned in my previous posts, it gets a bit annoying to take pictures while cooking because i’m so focused on trying to make things correct that it slips my mind but this is a pretty nice shot of the finished piece. I was pretty proud of how well it turned out considering how hectic I felt making these… lololIMG_4378
