Hmmmm, one of our intrepid readers - Steve Jones - tried The Amish Cook's lemon bar recipe and took a beautiful photo. But then he decided to get creative and turn them it into lime bars. Oooh, that sounds good! The first picture is Steve Jones's lemon bars using Lovina's recipe and then look what happens when he "limes' them! The "lime bar" recipe has been posted below using Steve's adaptations. Thank you to Steve, owner of Sjlarue Photography for those beautiful shots!
