Sorry for not keeping up with the blog as well as I had in the past. I have had a lot on my mind about life and school and what I am doing with myself. Maybe if I was a better writer I would use this space as an outlet, but I usually feel like no one wants to read about my struggles. And I can barely follow my own thoughts when I write.
So, I have been doing a little more cooking in the kitchen lately and trying new recipes. I am following quite a few more blogs and really enjoying what people are coming up with. The recipe I want to share with everyone today is probably one of my favorites. It is so easy and ridiculously yummy. And to top it off, it is lemon flavored. I love lemon and I don't know why. Maybe it reminds me of the summer and warm nights.
Anyway, this comes from a talented blogger named Gena and her blog, http://www.choosingraw.com/. I would encourage everyone to check her out.

Add lemon juice, lemon zest and dates and pulse repeatedly.
Mix until a ingredients clump together into a large ball.
Place mixture into a baking dish that has been covered in saran wrap or parchment paper.
Spread mixture out evenly and press down with another piece of saran wrap/parchment paper.
Freeze for about 30 minutes.
Cut mixture into 12 pieces and either wrap individually with saran wrap or leave in baking dish.
I am going to apologize for the picture because it just doesn't do the bars justice. I am quite am amateur photographer, my lighting in my kitchen is horrible and I have a great, but older camera.
