Helpful Tips

You can keep these bars chilled in the refrigerator or freezer. I personally like the freezer better because the filling gets firmer and the crust crunchier. A lemon dessert that is frozen it’s so much more refreshing.

To get a clean-cut place the bars in the freezer after they have completely cooled at room temperature. Dip a sharp thin knife into a glass of hot water and wipe the knife clean. Cut the bars immediately.


Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
