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!

Carrot and Parsnip Chips

These were tasty!

They take some time in the oven but they're a nice little snack.

To slice the vegetables, I used a mandolin on the thinnest setting mine has. If you don't have a mandolin, you should get one. They make slicing so much easier! You can make all kinds of chips and save time on slicing. Just watch your fingers.

Carrot and Parsnip Chips
Makes about 1 cup of chips

  • 1 large carrot, thinly sliced
  • 2 medium parsnips, thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon chili powder
  1. Preheat oven to 200F.
  2. Mix oil and spices then toss sliced carrots and parsnips in it.
  3. Spread on 2 cookie sheets in a single layer. Bake for 1 hour in the middle of the oven, then flip the slices. Bake for another hour or until crisp.
  4. To test, take out a piece of each vegetable and set aside for 3 minutes to cool. If it's crispy, then remove the sheets from the oven and allow to cool before eating. Otherwise, continue to cook for a few more minutes. Watch them carefully so they don't burn.
