When I found Lemon Brownies on Carol's blog There's Always Thyme To Cook, I dropped what I was doing and made them almost immediately.
In the mail this week, I received a newly released novel Gone With A Handsomer Man and was looking for a sweet treat for the weekend. We're heading to the mountains for the weekend, and I plan to curl up with my new book from Michael Lee West and lemon brownies.
Stop back next Friday when we bake and photograph a few recipes that are mentioned in Gone With A Handsomer Man.
"Gone With a Handsomer Man is hilarious, endearing, and tasty!"--Diana Gabaldon, New York Times bestselling author of the Outlander series.
Here's the recipe for the Lemon Brownies. YUM!

Stir together eggs, juice from 1/2 lemon and zest from 1 lemon; stir into batter and pour into prepared pan. Bake for 30 minutes or until set, use a toothpick to check.
