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! Italian Lemon Cake Adapted from My Recipe Confessions Makes 1 Cake Ingredients For the Cake 3 cups all purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking powder 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 cup butter, softened 2 cups sugar 3 large eggs 1/2 cup buttermilk 1/2 cup sour cream 4 tablespoons lemon juice 2 tablespoons lemon zest 1 teaspoon vanilla For the Glaze 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar 5+ tablespoons lemon juice Directions Preheat the oven to 325F.

Octopus Hot Dogs

I've seen this fun kids food all over the net. All you have to do is insert uncooked spaghetti noodles into cut up hot dogs and boil them. Not the healthiest meal but it certainly is cool!

Some people insert the spaghetti through the other side of the dogs so you get legs on both sides. It's up to you. Super easy and my girls loved them.

Imagine these octopus hot dogs tossed in tomato sauce for Halloween. That would be creepy.


  1. you know you can make these with no spaghetti?

    Take hot dog on one end make slit 1/4 way up perpendicular.... turn and cut midle of other side make sure to cut all way up then drop in boiling water walla octopuss legs curl on own.... lol to cute!
