Passionate Cooks Available Now! Free!

I sell a few of my books through All Romance Ebooks, and the people who run the webiste have organized a new cookbook of 150 recipes submitted by romance authors. The cookbook is being offered FREE of charge. Yes! I submitted a recipe to Passionate Cooks! In fact, my After The Lovin' Lemon Bars recipe is the very first dessert listed in the book.

I've had a chance to look through the cookbook (you know how I love those things) and I have to say that the recipes look wonderful. I'll be trying a few of them in the days to come.

The book is offered in a variety of formats, so pop over the All Romance Ebooks and download a copy today!

After The Lovin' Lemon Bars


  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • Powdered (confectioners) sugar for sprinkling

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Mix together the flour, butter and powdered sugar. Press mixture into the bottom of an ungreased square 8" X 8" pan, building up 1/2-inch edges (to hold in the filling). Bake the crust for 20 minutes.

3. Beat the remaining ingredients until light and fluffy. Pour lemon filling over hot crust and bake approximately 25 minutes, or until no indentation remains when lightly touched in the center. Cool and cut into squares. Sprinkle with a little powdered sugar. Enjoy these lusciously sweet lemon bars after the lovin'!

Ooo Donna! The lemon bars sound tasty - and so easy! My kind of recipe :) My recipe is the Like It Hot Chicken Soup. Now, doesnt that sound like a tasty menu? Soup for starter, Marilyn's pasta for the main, with your lovely lemon bars to enjoy with a coffee or tea afterwards. Sigh... heaven :)

The lemon bars sound scrumptious. I'll have to try them. I also have recipes in the book: one for Artichoke and Asiago Cheese dip and the other for Brandied Orange and Walnut Tart.

I made cookies today, but I'm off tomorrow and I have all of those ingredients on hand! I LOVE lemon bars but I have never made them.
