My husband LOVES winter. LOVES snow. LOVES cold weather. I am the opposite. I was raised in Southern California and am a beach girl at heart. So I LOVE the sun. LOVE warm weather and LOVE when it stays light at night.
We are fortunate enough to live in a state where we get to truly experience the four different seasons. Just today I told my hubby, “Better watch out, baby! My season is about to hit!”. It was met by a groan and I think I might have even seen a bead of sweat starting to form on his forehead. Anything over 60 degrees and he instantly turns into a portable heater.
In thinking about summer, maybe that is why I was drawn to this pin for Lemon Rice Krispie Treats by Sweet as a Cookie. Lemonade, lemon popsicles and now Lemon Rice Krispie Treats. Can’t you just feel the heat! Ahhh….summertime!
Super easy to make, the lemon in these makes for a great twist to a classic treat. The only problem was that I made these when I was home alone. Which meant there was no one else to share them with.
Which meant I ate more than one.
Okay, maybe more then three but not the whole pan.
Make these today but just make sure there’s someone home to share them with. Otherwise call me. I’ll understand.
This Pin Rocks!
