Everyone’s got a little bit of a sweet tooth, especially this time of year! With the cooler weather behind us, it’s time to grab those picnic baskets and load up with a sweet treat to enjoy with your friends while you sit back and enjoy all of the budding flowers that are popping up. Who doesn’t love a thick slice of a pound cake, drizzled with strawberries? Or maybe you’ll have a nice, bright lemon bar. Whatever your spring sweet of choice may be, here are some of Paula’s favorite recipes to get you started!
