Lime Cheesecake Bars

See these from Confessions of a Cookbook Queen - - look amazing, right!? (yep, her picture)

I told myself I could make them.  I even did it all - made the lime curd, heated things, baked things, etc.  But mine aren't so pretty:
After the fact I realize what I did wrong - - I should have stirred in all the food coloring, and then reserved some aside - - I reserved first (the yellow blobs - which should have been bright green) and then when I mixed the rest and it turned light green (as it should have) and I seconded guessed and added a bunch more food coloring.  Oops:

So they looked really weird, being neon green and all. And we had them at a picnic with foreign people, so I'm sure they wondered what the crazy Americans were serving.  See the cookies in the bottom picture that I brought as an afterthought - they were a hit and got devoured.  The cheesecake bars that I spent the afternoon making - not at all.

But I had one and let me tell you.  They were super yummy!!  So I guess it's a good thing they looked weird  because I took most the pan back home and ate it all up.

Well...they look good to me! May have to look that one up.

I've found out the sometimes food may not look too great but it sure can taste awesome! I love cheesecake!

Well, you could have let me know. I would have helped you polish off those cheesecake bars!!! I think they look like the perfect dessert for St. Patrick's Day (or any other day, for that matter.) :-)

Call me crazy but I thought they looked great!
