Early bird gets the worm, huh!? That must be why these paleo lemon bars turned out so delicious! I’ve been up since early this morning working on recipes, playing in the kitchen, and drafting posts. We’ve been having overcast skies which have proven to be quite fantastic for food photography the past couple days. I decided it was a good day to make these paleo lemon bars, so I could snap some dreamy shots.
Lemon is a favorite of mine, mostly for its versatility. I love that it goes with savory, sweet and tart things. Lemon is like all the things of food. Justin and I always talk about how we want all the things. It’s kind of the mantra of our life together. I don’t mean all the things, like cars, big houses and fancy things. I mean all the things, like our dream jobs (working on that one right now, check!), lots of love, babies, and a cozy place to call home. That’s about it, but it is oh so much when you share it with the right person I’m finding. So, these paleo lemon bars are all the things. They’re sweet, savory and a little tart, too! They’re also pretty and kind of airy and dreamy looking in these photos.
The crust on the bottom is graham cracker like, and the filling is quite lemony, infused with hints of honey. I just want to go back to these photos and soak up the bright and lemon scented air.
