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 Quick Pasta Ideas

There are 3 really easy dishes I make on nights when I don't really feel like cooking. My kids love pasta so this really works for us. Make sure the pasta is hot so the butter melts.

1. Mix cooked pasta with butter, fresh cracked black pepper and ricotta cheese.

Here's the ricotta one. I don't have pics to share of the other two.

2. Mix cooked pasta with butter and ketchup. Most kids like ketchup don't they? I even make this when I can't think of anything else to take to work for lunch.

3. Mix cooked pasta with olive oil, crumbled feta and seeded/chopped Kalamata olives. You could probably add diced tomatoes to this one.
