High Altitude Lemon Bars

Thursday, April 24, 2014
I love lemon bars!  Who doesn't though, right?  They are always a hit at every party and my husband's favorite sweet.  Woo hoo for summer and fresh juicy lemons.


You don't have to make many changes to this recipe to make it work for high altitude, but reducing the baking powder in the filling helps keep it from rising and falling too quickly and leaving you with a flat top.

Baking at High Altitude

Tuesday, April 22, 2014
Is there a difference between baking at high altitude and at sea level?  Do I need to adjust my bread recipes when I move to the Rockies?  What kind of problems might I face in the kitchen moving from Hawaii to Colorado?  These are questions you might find yourself wondering in your kitchen, I know I did!


My favorite cupcakes are often from boxed cake mixes.  I always make my own frosting, but I often cheat a little a use a box mix for cupcakes because I like them.  I do. So I wondered, can you use mixes with the same results at high altitude?   You can!  Here are the tweaks that I made.
