5 Star Cookies – Lemon Bars

When life give you lemons you make lemonade or in my case I make Lemon Bars.

Lemon bars are quite simple to make. The first part is a perfectly crumbly shortbread base followed by a gooey lemon topping.

The final special touch – magic sugar dust  …and the princess came to our blog.

Her name is Martina McBride and she is a very famous country singer. She is also very famous for her cooking and baking.

Her book “Around the Table” is must have. For today and for this blog I am going to make “Lemon Coconut Bars”.

So, if you need some magic in your life…try this recipe.

I never promise you a rose garden

 Or just read..

I never promise you a rose garden

I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine
There’s gotta be a little rain some time
When you take you gotta give so live and let live
Or let go oh-whoa-whoa-whoa
I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden

I could promise you things like big diamond rings
But you don’t find roses growin’ on stalks of clover
So you better think it over
Well if sweet-talkin’ you could make it come true
I would give you the world right now on a silver platter
But what would it matter
So smile for a while and let’s be jolly
Love shouldn’t be so melancholy
Come along and share the good times while we can

I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine
There’s gotta be a little rain some time

I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden

I could sing you a tune and promise you the moon
But if that’s what it takes to hold you
I’d just as soon let you go
But there’s one thing I want you to know
You better look before you leap, still waters run deep
And there won’t always be someone there to pull you out
And you know what I’m talkin’ about
So smile for a while and let’s be jolly
Love shouldn’t be so melancholy
Come along and share the good times while we can

I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden
Along with the sunshine
There’s gotta be a little rain some time,
I beg your pardon
I never promised you a rose garden

MAGIC IS SOMETHING YOU MAKE…SO MAKE LEMON BARS…
  and remember.
“It’s still magic even if you know how it’s done”.
