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!

Super Simple Stewed Beef

There's really nothing to this recipe. You need very few ingredients to make this stewed beef.  It's simple and delicious!

This is what it looks like when it's done. Not too much liquid left.

Super Simple Stewed Beef
Makes 6 servings

  • 2 lbs stewing beef or veal, cubed
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 bay leaves
  • water
  1. Heat oil in a nonstick pot over medium high heat. Fry the meat on all sides until browned. You may have to do this in 2 or 3 batches. Sprinkle turmeric, salt and pepper over the meat and stir. Add the bay leaves and cover the meat with water.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium and put the lid on the pot. Simmer for about 1 1/2 hours or until meat is tender. Check on it regularly. If the water starts to run out add a little more. The end result shouldn't be liquidy.
  3. Serve with rice or potatoes.
