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!

Hamburger Patties

I was making lasagne for dinner tonight and decided the kids probably wouldn't be interested, so I saved a bit of the ground beef. I was going to make up a few meatballs but I didn't feel like rolling so many balls, so I made a big hamburger patty instead. You could divide the mixture in half to get 2 burgers and serve them on buns, or multiply the recipe for more burgers. I didn't use any egg or breadcrumbs in this recipe but it holds together just fine.

We started eating it before I decided I wanted to keep a record of this recipe. I didn't know it would taste so good.
