Lemons, oh how I love citrus fruit. These were so tasty that I
had to give most of the entire pan away. I had envisions of me
eating a piece for breakfast, lunch and dinner so they had to go.
I had a lot of fun taking these photo's and trying to be some what
creative with food pics. Go make some bars before summer is over!
