"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

We're calling tnem the 'watergate brownies...'

so recently I was gifted a bag of lemons.  Have you noticed the price of lemons??  I love lemons and all things lemony so I began to look for something new to try to bake.  Be forewarned, I'm not a baker, don't like it at all but for some reason lately I've been trying to think outside the box.  The box...I love it!

I found a recipe for "Lemonies" that sounded great, basically a lemon brownie.  I can do that.   So I got my ingredients together, dry in one bowl, wet in another, asked hubby to squeeze some lemons for me, still can't to that one handed!

Everything mixed up, in the pan and baking away as directed.   Twenty minutes later I pull them out and what the??  I look over the ingredient list again, no not missing anything, all was carefully measured.   Went back to the computer to look at the 'after' photo, hmmmm, definitely something wrong here.   Mine were flat and dry actually quite pathetic looking.  Hers?  you know, moist and fluffy.

Now the cover-up.  With a nice heavy layer of lemon glaze and some fresh lemon zest and berries and voila.   From drab to fab.

what are your weekend plans?   I still have lemons to turn into something~~~something.  Enjoy


  1. My mouth is watering just looking at those, Joanne! I love a lemon dessert-dry-wet-flat-fluffy....and I am OFF sugar so I can only drool into my keyboard here. I sure hope you can use your hand soon. What is the prognosis on that?

    My grandson tore the tendon in his thumb yesterday and will probably have to have surgery as his thumb is at a 90 degree angle. Poor kid! xop Diana

  2. Anything lemon is (by definition) delicious. Doesn't matter how it looks because it always tastes delish.

  3. Well it certainly looks delicious the way you have served it. Great cover -up. YUM . xoxo,Susie

  4. It looks delicious, so your cover-up worked. I bet it WAS delicious.

  5. Painting.

    Looks like you came up with the perfect solution!
    Have a blessed weekend!

  6. That a girl... "When someone gives you lemons..." you know. AND... when the lemon recipe didn't come out like the picture... you added some glaze and fresh berries. Excellent save, and they look delicious. Can I have one?
