Strawberry Lemonade Bars

Strawberry Lemonade BarsOne of my favorite flavors in the kitchen is lemon! Throw in a little bit of strawberry and I am in heaven.  That’s exactly what I did with these lemon bars.  They are the perfect balance of sweet and tart–just the way I like it!  I even threw in a secret ingredient—lemonade drink mix!  These bars only last 2 days in this house :)
