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!

More Juicy Chicken Meatballs

This recipe is great because it uses leftover mashed potatoes.

I love using meatballs as a way of getting more veggies into my kids - they don't even know they're in there. If you don't have mashed potatoes you can boil a small potato and just mash it with a fork. Let it cool before adding it to the mix. I also put all the vegetables into the Magic Bullet because it was faster than chopping.
