Printable Recipe is below in this post!

I’m so very excited about this easy lemon bar recipe post! I hope you’ll watch it and comment below! This is my first ever, full video tutorial for Southern Plate. To make it even more special, it includes two very special guests. The first is Terri, the reader who gave me the Dixie Cornbread recipe. For the other surprise guest (who is also a reader!) you’ll have to watch the video.

Visiting Alabama

I had this rare opportunity a few weeks back when Terri came all the way from Pennsylvania for a visit. We had such a wonderful weekend with her and her daughter, Amanda. Time flew by. It seemed they arrived and then left, leaving me in a cloud of dust and wishing for more time. The kids are still asking when they are coming back and I’m wondering, too! (hint, hint to Terri).

Can’t Make Lemon Bars Without Singin’
