Italian Lemon Cake

This Italian lemon pound cake is a recipe that I'd had my eye on for a long time. I finally made it back in April! I skipped adding frosting but if you visit the original recipe it'll tell you how to make it. The glaze needed a lot more lemon juice than the recipe called for. I used 5 tablespoons of lemon juice and it was still very thick. The cake itself isn’t very lemony so you really do need either the glaze or the frosting to bring the lemon flavour to this recipe. I'm not complaining though, it was still really delicious!

No Shell Taco Salad

This is one of my favourite salads. It's better if the meat is warm so it can mingle with the sour cream and create a sauce. You could use re-fried beans instead if you're vegetarian.

I'm sure you've seen burrito bowls served in a crispy tortilla? Place a tortilla in a pie dish and bake it until it becomes crisp, then serve your salad in it.

You could add other toppings such as black olives or pickled jalapenos.
