A dear family friend gifted us with the Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer and a few vintage Maida Heatter cookbooks--two essential kitchen must-haves. While I didn't know Maida Heatter a few years ago, I certainly do now. She is the dessert queen. I first fell in love with her decadent and chewy brownies and now I'm in love with her Florida Lemon Squares, which I made for my Secret Santa.
These sweet and tart squares are sandwiched between an oatmeal sugary crust that is to die for. I seriously want to make a few batches and freeze them just so I can eat them at leisure.
I can't wait to keep exploring these books and picking out some household favorites.
