Meyer Lemon Poppy Seed Bars with Cream Cheese Icing are a delicious treat sure to brighten even the coldest winter days!
Lemon desserts are always on the top of my list of favorites. I had these beautiful Dandy Fresh Meyer Lemons and knew they needed to be enjoyed in dessert form. Meyer Lemons are so good in my favorite sweets, they are a cross between a lemon and an orange. I can’t get enough of them!
Life has been somewhat of a roller coaster of sickness, injuries and general craziness for the last couple of weeks. I would like to bubble wrap my children and demand that they stay in the house, but I know that won’t really work. I think everyone is on the mend, thank goodness.
