Strawberry Lemonade Bars

Strawberry Lemonade Bars

Strawberry Lemonade Bars – those delicious lemon bars with the great addition of strawberries.  A great summertime treat what’s perfect all year round!

Strawberry and lemon – two of my favorite dessert flavors.

Hmmm… well, maybe there are others, too.

Chocolate. Chocolate is a good flavor for dessert and I really like that, too.

And don’t forget banana. I really like banana in banana cake.

Hmmm…I guess I enjoy quite a few flavors in my desserts.

I decided to make these after going on the Click Retreat last month. Man, was that awesome. It was a cruise through the Caribbean on Royal Caribbean’s Oasis of the Seas. I’ll be sharing a recap of the trip next week because if I shared it here with these bars, you’d be reading this post until 2016.
