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!

Heart Shaped Valentine Snack

I'm getting into the spirit of Valentine's Day now so I thought I might start sending my 4 year old to school with a valentine themed snack from now until then. I started off making this cute little container of heart shaped cucumbers, melon and strawberries with chocolate chips.

I'm looking to buy small heart shaped cookie cutters but I haven't had the chance to go out looking for them yet, so I just cut the shapes with a knife. How cute! I'm sure she'll be surprised tomorrow afternoon when she sees what she's got for snack.

You could go larger scale for lunch and add a heart shaped sandwich (a large cookie cutter would work well for that). Put it all in a bento box or make your own using smaller containers inside a larger one.
