Recipe

It has been way too long since I have shared a good dessert recipe and this one has quickly become one of my favorites. Tart and sweet lemon bars studded with blueberries all on a crunchy, hearty oatmeal crust. For those unfamiliar with Meyer lemons, they are my newest obsession, along with feeling awkward watching Girls, this book, this feature on the morning routines of celebrities, and this Time magazine photo essay on what the world eats fascinating. But back to the lemons. Meyer lemons are thought to be a cross between a lemon and perhaps a mandarin (no one really knows exactly) and have the tartness of a lemon with a delicate sweetness. They are dreamy and make a great substitute in any recipe calling for lemons. Don’t worry though, if you can’t find Meyer lemons, regular lemons will work fine.
