Yum Yum! Lemon Bars!

Two Ingredient Lemon Bars......
2 Ingredient Lemon Bars
Oh yeah you read that right only Two simple ingredients to make these melt in your mouth ( middle of the pie) lemon squares!
Yep this is like you cut your self a slice right out of the middle of the pie!
This is all you need:
1 box angel food cake mix( I use Betty Crocker)
2 cans lemon pie filling
I used two 21 oz cans of Comstock pie filling ( total of 42 oz)
Mix dry cake mix and cans of pie filling together in large bowl.
I just mixed it by hand...
Pour into greased 9 x 13″ baking pan.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until top is starting to brown.
NOTE...Mine took the full 25 minutes to get done and did not brown on top at all :))
Cool on wire rack and sprinkle with powered sugar. It has a melt in your mouth spongy texture.
I have come across this recipe in a few different places so thanks to those who shared this yummy recipe!

Just Arrived: Enchanted Pond Batiks

Holly loves the sounds around the pond, as they change almost by the hour. The morning is her favorite with the beautiful sounds from all the different species of birds coming to feed. Midday there is a peaceful quiet with the occasional chirp of the cricket. When nightfall arrives, it is as if the pond comes alive with the croaking of the frogs. It is truly enchanting for her to live on the pond.

Fat Quarter Bundles, Jelly Rolls and Charm Packs are available.

Yum Yum: Fruity Popcycles!

3 cups watermelon puree (seedless if possible)
1/2 cup fresh blueberries
1/2 cup chopped fresh strawberries
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
1 peach or nectarine, diced small
handful fresh cherries, pitted and chopped

Cut the watermelon into chunks and then puree it in a blender until smooth. Set aside.

Set out about 1 dozen popsicle molds (amount needed will vary depending on size of molds). Fill each one with the chopped fresh fruit. Then pour in the watermelon puree until each mold is full to the top. Place a popsicle stick into each one. Place into your freezer and freeze for about 6 to 8 hours.

When ready to serve, run the popsicle molds under warm water for a few seconds and then pull each one out.

Neutral Territory fabric collection is fun and comtemporary

Neutral Territory Quilt Fabric Collection is from PB Textiles by Donna Becher..

This beautiful, gold-laden collection artfully combines the geometry of circles and squares with the skill and flair of a true artist.  

The main print is a patchwork in earthy colors and touches of slate blue. 

 A smaller version lightly echoes the main print, 

and the stripe has multiple stripes within it, creating interest and variety; it looks terrific cut in either direction.  

 Windswept circles, a grid of dots, and a windowpane check complete the collection.
