Lime Bars with Coconut Crust

I made you some lime bars to get ready for spring!

I say this stuff about “spring” as I look out of my window at…snow.  On April 3rd.  It’s not even April 1st, so you know it’s not an April Fools (Fool’s? Fools’?  Do the jokes belong to the fools?) joke.

Triple Citrus Sugar Cookies

It’s winter in Dallas finally.  We had some sleet and frozen rain fall from the sky and schools closed for 2 days.  I went to work on the second of the 2 “snow days,” and there was so little traffic that I wish EVERY day was a fake snow day for the rest of the city.   (more…)
