The Lemon Water Secret

Our tummies have been at rest ever since we adopted this amazing morning regime: drinking hot lemon water. No lie, our stomachs digest food so much nicer ever since we started our day doing this. We learned from FoodMatters.TV that warm lemon water serves as the perfect ‘good morning drink’, as it aids the digestive system and makes the process of eliminating the waste products from the body easier. It prevents the problem of constipation and diarrhea, by ensuring smooth bowel functions (sorry, TMI!). Try it for yourself and let us know what you think!

Recipe of the Day: Lemon Bars


Last night, each of our sweet tooth's kicked in, begging for some sugary goodness. We decided that dessert would fulfill our craving and left it to you guys to decide what we should bake. One of our fab readers, Victoria, suggested we whip up something that wouldn't require a lot of kitchen appliances. Sugary goodness....limited kitchen appliances...We couldn't think of a more perfect treat to fulfill these two must haves and that would be quick and easy to make: Lemon Bars!

Ingredients:

Crust
  • 1 cup of softened butter
  • 1/2 cup of white sugar
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
Lemon Curd
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 1/4 cups of flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 regular sized lemons (to be juiced)
~optional: powdered sugar
*9x13 inch pan to bake

First, grease your baking pan with oil and preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Then, in a separate bowl combined the Crust ingredients (softened butter, white sugar, and all purpose flour). Once well mixed, pour the crust mixture into the greased pan, pressing it into the bottom of the pan to form a nice crust mold. Place the crust-mixtured pan into the oven and let it back for 15-20 minutes. Remove the crust mixture, but keep the oven on.

For the Lemon Curd mixture, first combined the dry ingredients into a bowl (the white sugar and flour).  Whisk in the eggs and juice from the 2 lemons second. Pour this entire mixture into the now heated crust and pop the whole mixture back into the oven to bake for another 20 minutes.

Let the mixture cool allowing the lemon curd to settle in. Sprinkle the powdered sugar as desired on top of the mixture (optional). Cut into squares (serves up to 12) and you're all done!

Enjoy...{we did!}
