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!

Chicken Meatloaf Squares

My kids like meatballs but I was too lazy to roll them, so now we have another meatloaf recipe instead. Or maybe we could call these meatsquares? Is that weird?

I was also too lazy to chop so I used a mini food processor to do the work for me. It's just faster than using a knife and gets the veggies really small.

I saw a post on Pinterest about putting ground meat into a large bag and dividing it into squares. So I placed my meat mixture onto the baking sheet and used a wooden spatula to divide it into squares before cooking. The squares came apart really easily once they were cooked. And this recipe is delicious by the way!

Here they are all cooked.

Chicken Meatloaf Squares
Adapted from Our Kitchen Island
Makes 4 servings

  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup Panko
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
  • 2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used Tex Mex blend)
  • 1 tablespoon of tomato paste
  • 1/2 medium onion, minced
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper, minced
  • 6 medium sized button mushrooms, minced
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1lb extra lean ground chicken
  1. Preheat the oven to 425F.
  2. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl, except for the chicken. Once combined, you can mix in the chicken.
  3. Press the mixture onto a foil lined baking sheet. I flattened mine to about 1/2". Try to get it even.
  4. Use a flat object to make indents into the mixture, creating little squares (or big ones if you want).
  5. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and cooked through.


  1. My kid has issues on round meatballs and just wants it flat. This is a good idea! =)Thanks for sharing.

  2. Interesting idea, Jenny. Looks perfect for appetizers or entertaining too. The recipe sounds delicious!
