Raspberries and Meyer lemons showing up together here in a cheesecake bar cookie have this thing; it's a lively, tangy, bright and tasty flavor thing, I'm all about loving it and so will you.
I love valentines ❤️ day. The cards, gifts, treats, special dinners with your sweetheart, what's not to like?
I made my raspberry Meyer lemon cheesecake bars to celebrate valentines ♥️ day yesterday so they would have an overnight in the fridge to firm up before cutting into bars, I still had trouble and they came out a bit messy, oh well. They taste great anyway and I will make them again during our official raspberry season which comes earlier every year, not sure that's a good thing. However, we are smack dab in the middle of lemon season and that feels normal and good. My tree as well as all my neighbors who are lucky enough to have lemon 🍋 trees are all experiencing a huge lemon 🍋 crop. I think lemon tart is my next baking project, meanwhile I'm enjoying 🍋 juice with everything. This morning I made waffles and substituted lemon juice for a spoonful of water, not bad. I put lemon juice and lemon zest in the fresh berries that I served with my waffles, not bad. I'm getting the hang of this using up a bowl of lemons in my kitchen thing and I like it just fine.
