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!

Risotto Style Spaghetti

This is easy and delicious. It's spaghetti prepared in the same way you would make risotto. Rather than just boiling the pasta and adding sauce later, here you're cooking the flavour right into it.

Risotto Style Spaghetti 
Makes 4 servings

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, copped
  • 2 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 2 cups dry spaghetti, broken into pieces
  • 1 roasted red pepper, drained and chopped
  • 3 sun-dried tomatoes, drained and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dry oregano
  • 1 teaspoon dry basil
  • salt and pepper
  • 2 cups (or more) low sodium chicken stock, hot
  • parmesan cheese
  1. Fry onion and garlic in oil over medium high heat until golden. Stir in dry broken spaghetti and cook until it starts to brown. Just a few minutes.
  2. Stir in peppers, tomatoes and spices. Add chicken stock one ladle at a time until absorbed. Continue to add stock until pasta is cooked and creamy. Add salt and pepper to taste.
