Why is it still snowing in some places?

Can someone please answer me? Did we go through a climatic shift and no one told me? Or does someone need to send Spring a memo?

 My coat is getting heavy.

What the hell?!

This morning I heard spring allergies were going to be killer. The pollen situation is going to be out of control and you should stock up on your allergy meds.

I’ve already taken my dose. People don’t like it when I sneeze on their cookies.

I’m done with this winter situation. I’m putting my soups away. Spring is all up in this piece.

Last week I was catching up on my blog reads and came across these Cherry Bars by Cravings of a Lunatic. You guys need to read her blog. She’s a real entertaining read, plus her recipes are hardcore drool inducing.

Anyway, I wanted to make these bars – And though I love cherries, I love strawberries harder.

I love lemons even harder than that. Admit it – The combination is the shizzle.

We start this situation by macerating about a pound and a half of strawberries. The strawberries soften and release their juice. Then we make a creamy batter sprinkled with lemon zest and lemon juice. This batter situation comes together in minutes.

You drop batter onto a prepared pan, smooth that jammy out. Then you add those juicy macerated strawberries over the batter. Much like a cobbler, you randomly spoon batter on top. Don’t worry – It all melts and bubbles and sort of comes together.

Finally you make a glaze which you drizzle over cooled bars.

Oh, man… These bars are cakey with a hint of lemon and an explosion of strawberries in every single bite. The glaze is sweet, yet doesn’t over power, as the strawberries remain tart.

It’s serious, people. Serious.

So yeah… Spring hasn’t gotten the memo. The flowers are not yet in bloom. But there is spring all up in this piece.

That is all that matters.
