Lemon Cheesecake Bars

This recipe isn't from scratch, sorry! I found a Krusteaz Lemon Bar mix on sale and bought one since it sounded good. I mean, I was pregnant and grocery shopping. Need I say more? I found this recipe on the back of the box and it is super yummy! It's pretty rich, so you'll wanna cut it into smaller squares.

Lemon Cheesecake Bars
1, 19.35 oz package Krusteaz Lemon Bar Mix (1 pouch each lemon filling mix and complete crust)
8 oz (1 cup) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sugar
4 eggs
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/3 cup water
Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease 8x8x2-inch pan. Press full pouch of complete crust firmly into bottom of pan. Bake 8 minutes (crust will be pale). Place cream cheese and sugar in medium bowl. Using an electric mixer, mix on low speed until smooth. Add 1 egg and vanilla. Continue to mix on low speed until smooth. Pour cream cheese mixture evenly over hot crust. In another bowl, stir full pouch lemon filling mix, water and 3 eggs together using a whisk until eggs are well incorporated. Pour lemon filling over cream cheese layer. Bake 35-40 minutes or until center does not jiggle when shaken. Cool completely and cut into squares. Store covered in the refrigerator.
Makes 16 bars.

Target Steals and Project Teasers

I've got several projects in the offing but since my sewing machine has gone AWOL and I haven't the money to get it repaired right now, I am waiting on my sister's MUCH anticipated visit in another couple weeks to get them done. She has a sewing machine that she got a few years ago for Christmas that is still in the box because she doesn't really use a sewing machine and isn't much of a sewer. BUT she has some sewing she wants me to do and since she never uses it she is going to bring the machine with her for me to get her sewing done and then leave it for me to get my much needed baby sewing done. WAHOO! I just love my sisters. And not just cuz they do me favors. But because they are a-wesome. They keep me going for SURE.

So this post is a little teaser of some things I have all ready to get sewn as well as some steals I found at Target. I love that place. Every time I leave I love it even more. The only time I ever leave there disappointed is when I can't walk in and say "One of everything please. Thank you!"

Clearence sheet that I am going to make a crib skirt. Only $3.96! I couldn't have bought the yards of fabric I needed for that cheap per YARD, let alone all of them.

Vinyl wall art for a little boys room. It's sports sayings and clip art from football, basketball and baseball. Normally $15, I got it for $3.74. We're in an apartment so we can't paint. This will come off easily when we have to move. Excited to get it up on the wall!

Burp rags with cloth diaper backing all set to be sewn with some coordinating ribbon on the edges.

Fabric cut to size for master bedroom curtains. Sky blue with a chocolate brown panel across the bottom.

Excited to get all this stuff done!
