Lemon Square Bars
I have made lemon bars so many times before but this time couldn't find my recipe. Thinking that all lemon bars/ squares equal I made this one because it had the most stars and great reviews. That was my first mistake.

Beer-Batter Onion Rings
We just tried this recipe and it was ok. I'm only giving it three stars because the proportion seemed to be way off when it came to the amount of liquid to make it a dip-able batter. When only using the 1 cup of liquid (beer) as stated, it made such a big glutenous glop on my wire wisk, I had to add A LOT more beer to make is a good batter consistency.
