Storm Clouds and a surprise

IMG_2522

Beautiful storm clouds rolling in over the marina tonight.  The kids had just enough time to enjoy the surprise of our new boat, “Chasin’ Chances” before the storm hit.

Even Grandma had time to look it over

It was a race against clouds to get back home, close all the windows and tuck the animals in before the rain…and we won 🙂

2 Ingredient Lemon Bars

I know this sounds too crazy to be true but it is!  These lemon bars are FABULOUS!!  And you don’t have to share your easy recipe with friends letting them think you slaved over a long recipe to make them something special!

These bars are a perfect light dessert and sure to be a hit anytime they are served.

1 box angel food cake mix

1 22 oz can Lemon Pie Filling

Gently fold all together in a bowl and pour into a greased cake pan (9×13)

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 30 minutes or until the top is perfectly browned as in the picture.

NOTE:  this batter “puffs” up as it bakes.  As it cools it will fall down which gives the bars their moist/delicious texture.  You can see in the pictures the “puffy” version right out of the oven and after about 8 minutes of cooling it has dropped.

Once cooled, sprinkle with powdered sugar.  Cut into bars and ENJOY 🙂
