Lemon Zucchini Bars Recipe
There are 2 things I love:
1) lemon (on just about everything!)
2) zucchini (we used to grow it and it was the best ever!)
So it only made sense that combining these 2 would be a match made in food heaven for me (and I was right!). If you’re looking for a simple, yummy and tasty recipe for your family – you need to try to make these Lemon Zucchini Bars! They really are so delicious! It’s also a recipe that you can make with your entire family! I love when there’s more than 3 ingredients because that means that all of my kids can have a turn (or two!) to help me out! I can’t tell you how tough it is when I’m making something with all of my kids and there’s only a few ingredients. Good for me because it’s VERY simple, but not good for the kids who want to help in the kitchen. Not to mention, I love introducing them to different ingredients and explaining how different tastes and textures really transform a recipe.
