I am a self proclaimed addict of peanut butter, nuts, dried fruits and pretty much anything that can be formed into a granola bar shape. Maybe it’s an ingrained snacking habit from the countless bars eaten between meals but I nearly always have a granola bar or two close at hand. Loaded with yummy ingredients, these homemade chewy granola bars from King Arthur Flour are the perfect snack and can be easily customized to taste with your own favorite fruits and nuts.

When life gives you lemons… make lemon brownies. Life tip? I guess so. Don’t get me wrong, I loooove chocolate. Deeply. I’ll admit it. I’m not ashamed. But every now and then, particularly in the spring, I start craving for Lemon pie, Lemon curd muffins, Lemon brownies… just name it. Despite the absence of chocolate, these babies are referred to as “brownies” because they have the same moist and fudgy texture as our beloved brownies. Taste of Lemon brownies are a little hard to describe so you’ll just have to make these babies from Budding Baketress blog and see for yourself! Trust me. You won’t regret it.
