It is finally beginning to feel like spring. The warmer weather is just so much more motivating. I have been busy getting some "spring cleaning" done. I try to clean as I go and my house isn't in need of too much spring cleaning (especially since we just moved into this one a few months back) but my children seem to be growing like weeds most of their clothes no longer fit them. Bags of clothes and toys they no longer play with are packed up and ready to be taken to Goodwill. 
After all my extra cleaning and not to mention the running (love it) I'm getting back into I was craving something sweet. That dang sweet tooth of mine will get me every time! Chocolate usually is the winner around here but something lemony was sounding good.
These Lemon Pie Bars sounded really good so that's what I made.  They are sweet and tangy at the same time......If you are looking for a " sweet & tangy" Lemon bar these just might hit the spot.
