Lemon Creme Nanaimo Bars

Lemon Creme Nanaimo Bars - these no-bake bars will knock your socks off!

This is the ultimate nanaimo bar recipe!  The lemon filling gives such a nice fresh flavor to these nanaimo cookie bars.

I recently attended a surprise party for a dear friend who was turning 40.  She is a well-loved person, and lots of friends and family members were there to celebrate with her.

When her husband asked each person to bring a food item to share, I immediately thought of these Nanaimo Bars.

That’s because, in the first place, these bars are one of my favorite things EVER.  They are an angelic pan of chocolate and coconut no-bake goodness.  Straight from heaven, I kid you not.  The Canadians totally got this one right.

Peach and Macadamia Nut Muffins with Streusel Topping

BF_Peach Muffins_3990

I love peach season! Our grocery stores have had peaches on sale for a couple weeks now so I have been itching to make something with them. Peaches are one of those fruits that can only be enjoyed for a select period of time during the year. I prefer my peaches firm, which I guess most would consider as unripe. For this recipe, you will want to use a softer peach.

This muffin recipe is adapted from my master muffin mix, which uses buttermilk and sour cream to keep the muffins moist for several days after baking. There is a little extra baking powder in this recipe to help the muffins rise nice and tall.

Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Buttercream

 

 


Happy first day of Spring! It’s Lauren here from Lauren’s Recipe Box. The warm weather is finally here to stay (fingers crossed) in East Tennessee! This past weekend was a slow one at our house and I must say it was nice that way. We celebrated my mother-in-law’s birthday with Mexican food and coconut cupcakes. Is there a better combination?!

I was excited to make these sweet cupcakes for her birthday because I know how much she loves coconut cake. And this time of year just calls for coconut! If you are a coconut lover this is the recipe for you!
