The Best Lemon Bars
The lemon filling was really good not too tart and not too sweet but it wasn't enough. The squares were very thin. Also I would make less crust because it was almost as thick as the filling.

Split Pea and Ham Soup I
So easy to prepare and very delicious! I used the leftover ham bone from Easter. I followed the recipe as it and it was perfect! After it cooled down the fat rose to the top and I just scooped it out. Will definitely make again if I have another ham bone on hand!

Antipasto Pasta Salad
My first time making antipasto and it turned out great! My husband doesn't like raw bell peppers so he was hesitant to try this but when he did he said it was a win! Very flavorful & hearty! This makes a ton of salad! Will be making again!
